Weekly options feature a shorter time to maturity, with expiration every week.

If you have a short-term view on a specific share (will the share price go up, down or stay unchanged in the short term), you will be able to invest in weekly option based on your view. You can choose the best matching exercise price according to your prediction. This provides you with a reactive instrument where the price of the option is lower thanks to the lower time value of the option because of its shorter time to expiration.

The expiration day of weekly options will be the first, second, fourth and fifth Friday each month, with a term of up to four weeks.
