How does an AC-DC Option Work?
AC-DC options are selection options. Quite a number of AC-DC options are European options, this option can be used the owner of an instrument for a period of time. Often, the exercise date and selling price are set in these options. AC-DC options are quite useful during market volatility, when a company's security is highly vulnerable, this option can be applied. The compensation method used for the analysis of sales options is also applicable to the AC-DC options but with little considerations. The profitability of a position, the ability of the investor to select payment, among other factors are considered when calculating compensation. Securities that are traded higher than the strike (market) price are more profitable than other counterparts, so also the compensation that the owner will receive.
