An option whose strike price is above the current price of the underlying stock or future (for call options) or below the current price of the underlying stock or future (for put options). With Cisco trading at $70, both the $60 put options and $80 call options are out of the money. Out-of-the-money options have no intrinsic value. It is one of three terms used to describe option “moneyness”, which is the relationship between the position of the current or future price of an underlying asset and the strike price.
