Exchange-Traded Option

Option which is traded on a regulated exchange, as opposed to over-the-counter (OTC).

Exchange traded options typically have standardized contract sizes, expirations, strike interval, settlement procedures, and other specifications.

Options on stocks, ETFs, or futures are typically exchange-traded, while most options on currencies or bonds are traded over-the-counter.
