What are Futures Options?
Futures options are options contracts with futures as the underlying asset. Also referred to as options on futures, this product type enables traders to exchange the underlying at a predetermined price by a specific date. Each in-the-money (ITM) futures option expires into its corresponding outright futures contract, unless the option contract is financially settled to a cash credit or debit.
