Exit Options

A variety of options available to an investor to recover their invested capital and the return on their investment.



Related Terms:

Barrier options

Contracts with trigger points that, when crossed, automatically generate buying or selling of
other options. These are very exotic options.


Basket options

Packages that involve the exchange of more than two currencies against a base currency at
expiration. The basket option buyer purchases the right, but not the obligation, to receive designated
currencies in exchange for a base currency, either at the prevailing spot market rate or at a prearranged rate of
exchange. A basket option is generally used by multinational corporations with multicurrency cash flows
since it is generally cheaper to buy an option on a basket of currencies than to buy individual options on each
of the currencies that make up the basket.

A bond characteristic such that the price appreciation will be less than the price
depreciation for a large change in yield of a given number of basis points.

specified time period, or on a specified date (expiration date).


Options contract multiple
