Akamai Technologies Maximum Pain Price across 2022-10-07 Option Contracts

Max pain usually refers to a trading concept that asserts that market manipulation can cause the market price of particular securities such as Akamai Technologies close to expiration to expire worthless. According to most research, approximately 10% to 15% of all stock options are exercised, while about 35% expire worthlessly, with roughly 50% traded out before the expiration date.

However, in-the-money Akamai Technologies contracts are usually more expensive to enter than their out-of-the-money counterparts.
