When Do Weekly Options Expire?
Typically the expiration dates for weekly options are on
each Friday of the month, with the exception of the third Friday. The third
Friday of the month is the expiration date for standard monthly options, and as
such, there are no weekly options expiring on those dates.
The exception to weekly options expiring on the first,
second, fourth and fifth Friday in any given month is when there is an exchange
holiday on one of those dates. In the case that a holiday falls on a date that
would normally be the expiration date of a weekly option, the date is changed
to the preceding trading day (Thursday).
Adjusted Expiration Dates
There is only one dates shown on the 2022 weekly options
expiration calendar on which an adjusted expiration date occurs, and this is for the monthly option expiration date in April.
Due to the observance of Good Friday on April 15th,
2022 the monthly options which would normally expire on April 15th
will be changed to expire on April 14th.
No weekly options expiration dates are adjusted for 2022, as there are no exchange holidays which fall on the first, second, fourth or fifth Fridays of any months in this year.
