American options &

Master Topic 4

Equity options are typically American style. But what is the point of an American option? Why does anyone want the additional flexibility to exercise prior to expiry? How can we decide whether and when to exercise an option early? And how much more valuable is an American option than its European counterpart? In this master topic we will discuss all these questions around the why and the when to early exercise an option.
