Question Please give the definition of an Asian option.
Advice from Guru
Hello Forex Guy,

An option whose payoff depends on the average price of the underlying asset over a certain period of time as opposed to at maturity. Also known as an average option.

This type of option contract is attractive because it tends to cost less than regular American options.

An Asian option can protect an investor from the volatility risk that comes with the market.
