Weekly Energy Options: Turn Ideas into Action

Key features of Energy Weekly options
More options, more expirations, and more precise risk management make it simple to design and implement robust trading strategies using Crude Oil and Natural Gas Weekly options contracts. With Crude Oil expirations every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and Natural Gas expiring every Friday, weekly options exercise into the active futures contract, offer more granular strike prices in quarter increments, and automatically exercise with no contrary instructions.
