What Are Multi-Leg Options?

An option is a contract for the right to buy or sell an asset at a certain price (the strike price) for a certain period of time. Investors can purchase a call option (a contract to buy) or a put option (a contract to sell) that may be exercised (acted upon) before a certain date. When the date expires, the asset can be exercised or assigned to buy or sell the asset at the strike price. Instead of executing one option at a time, a multi-leg option describes an order trade that involves two or more options for a combined price.
