Asian option

An Asian option is relatively straightforward. It is an otherwise simple option with an exercise price that is determined by taking the average price of the underlying security over a pre-determined period and applying a fixed discount to it.

The valuation of Asian options is more complex than that of European or American options, but it is nonetheless more straightforward than the valuation of more complex types of exotic options.
