EUROPEAN OPTION

European Style Option is an option contract that may only be exercised on the expiration date. Call options give the option to buy the underlying at a certain price, so the buyer would want the underlying to go up. Put options give the option to sell the underlying at a certain price, so the buyer would want the underlying to go down.
