Using the Weekly Options Expiration Calendar

The key to the weekly options expiration calendar is shown in the top right corner of the calendar. The dates of expiration for weekly options are marked on the calendar in yellow. Expiration dates for monthly options are indicated in purple, and dates on which the exchange is closed for holidays are shown in red.

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 are two dates shown on the 2021 weekly options expiration calendar on which these adjusted expirations occur. The first is on Thursday, April 1st. Due to the observance of Good Friday on April 2nd, 2021 the weekly options which would normally expire on April 2nd were changed to expire on April 1st.

Likewise, on Friday December 24th, the market will be closed for the Christmas Day holiday. The expiration date for weekly options due to expire in the fourth week of December, 2021 will be on Thursday, December 23rd.

Breakdown of Expiration Dates by Month

In January 2021, the weekly options expiry dates are scheduled for the second, fourth and fifth Fridays. Friday, January 1st being an exchange holiday means that no weekly options expired on that day, but were adjusted to expire on December 31st, 2020.

February and March expiration dates for weekly options are listed for the first, second and fourth Fridays.

April expiration dates given for weekly options are on the first Thursday (adjusted date), and the second, fourth and fifth Fridays.

May and June scheduled expiration dates are the first, second and fourth Fridays.

July’s schedule offers four dates on the first, second fourth and fifth Fridays.

August and September have expiration dates of the first, second and fourth Fridays.

October has four expiration dates; the first, second fourth and fifth Fridays.

November’s expiration dates are the first, second and fourth Fridays, and as the Thanksgiving Holiday falls on Thursday, November 25th, the weekly option expiration date on November 26th is not affected.

The weekly options expiration calendar for December 2021 offers four dates, but one of them is an adjusted date on Thursday, December 23. There are also expiration dates on the first, second and fifth Fridays in December.

In total, 2021 offers 40 weekly option expiration dates, giving traders of weekly options lots of opportunities to win with weeklys!
