Tutorial Video: Weekly Option Contracts

This video provides a background for WEEKLYSsm.

Weeklys are options that expire each week. These products allow option traders to trade expiration week, every week if they choose. This flexibility can provide investors with more targeted potential short term trading opportunities.

Note: new weeklys are listed each week except that no new weeklys are listed that would expire during the expiration week for regular options (the third Friday of each month).
