Weekly Energy Options

Subscribe to Updates

More expirations. More options. More precise risk management.

Regional crude oil and natural gas storage data, weather anomalies and global market events like the upcoming OPEC meeting can have a dramatic impact on the energy markets. Weekly options give you greater flexibility to manage volatility arising from these events, along with the added benefit of shorter expirations to implement strategies at a lower premium.

How They Are Designed

  • Expire every Friday that is not already a monthly option expiration
  • Exercise into the active futures expiry
  • Same strike price intervals and minimum tick sizes as the monthly options
  • New weekly options listed the business day following an expiration
  • Automatic exercise with no contrary instructions

How You Can Benefit

  • Flexibility to manage short-term volatility and risk
  • Precision timing to target specific market movements or events, like OPEC meetings
  • More expirations (4 weeklies and one monthly); more options to limit exposure
  • Shorter expirations to gain market exposure at a lower premium
