out of the money

The situation where an option has only time value as opposed to intrinsic value because of the relationship between the option's strike price and the current market price for the underlying instrument, the spot price. A call option is out of the money when the strike price is above the spot price. A put option is out of the money when the strike price is below the spot price. American Banker Glossary

   An option is described as being out of the money when the current price of the underlying instrument is below the strike or exercise price for a call (an option to buy), and above the strike price for a put (an option to sell). Options can also be described as being deep out of the money when they are likely to expire out of the money.
