Freeport Mcmoran Maximum Pain Price across 2022-08-19 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 Freeport Mcmoran 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.

So, even if Freeport Mcmoran'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 Freeport Mcmoran contracts are usually more expensive to enter than their out-of-the-money counterparts.
