(redirected from Lookback Call Options)

Lookback Call Option

A call option giving the holder the right (but not the obligation) to buy the underlying asset on or by the expiration date at its lowest price that occurred between the start of the option and the time it is exercised. Because there is no set strike price and the lookback gives the option holder the highest possible flexibility, it carries a high premium (or sale price). See also: Lookback Put Option.
