Please join Stan Freifeld, Director of Corporate Services and option mentor at McMillan Analysis Corporation, for this recorded webinar event.

Exchange-traded options in the U.S. are classified as either American style or European style. The latter type can only be exercised at expiration while American style options can be exercised at any time. Consequently, writers of these options can be assigned at any time.

Several questions may come to mind: When should I early exercise long options? When should I expect to be assigned on short options? Is being assigned a serious problem or not?

Stan discussed the theory and practical applications of early exercise and provided an example of the serious consequences of not being aware of how it can impact your positions.
