EBay Maximum Pain Price across 2023-04-21 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 EBay 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. So, Max pain occurs when market makers reach a net positive position across all options at a strike price where option holders stand to lose the most money. By contrast, option sellers may reap the most after selling more options than buying, causing them to expire worthless.
EBay's stock options are financial instruments that give investors the right to buy or sell shares of EBay Inc common stock at a specified price for a given time period. Generally speaking, an option to purchase or sell EBay stock makes it part of the underlying stock when the option's price is tied to the movement of the underlying stock. If EBay's stock price goes up or down, the stock options follow.

Please note that buying 'in-the-money' options on EBay lessens the impact of time decay, as they carry both intrinsic and time value. So, even if EBay's value remains static through the expiration date, the investor can sell to close an 'in-the-money' option to avoid a potential loss. However, in-the-money EBay contracts are usually more expensive to enter than their out-of-the-money counterparts. So keep in mind that while the payoffs on an in-the-money trade can be high, the investors could ultimately experience a more consequential loss if EBay Stock moves the wrong way.
