Capped-Style Option

A capped option is an option with an established profit cap or cap price. The cap price is equal to the option's strike price plus a cap interval for a call option or the strike price minus a cap interval for a put option. A capped option is automatically exercised when the underlying security closes at or above (for a call) or at or below (for a put) the Option's cap price.

Capped Option

An option contract that establishes a maximum profit for the holder. Capped options contain a provision stating that the option is automatically exercised if the underlying security closes on a trading day above (for a call) or below (for a put) some established price. This means that if the underlying security moves in a direction disadvantageous for the writer, there is a maximum amount the writer can lose. A capped option is also called a capped-style option.
