Lookback Put Option

A put option giving the holder the right (but not the obligation) to sell the underlying asset on or by the expiration date at the highest price that occurs 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 Call Option.
