I would say that explanations of this page are very confusing. Many more references to other explanations in wikipedia needed in order for this article to be of popular use.

I reverted the initial paragraph back from [[stock option]] to [[option]] as this concept is more general than just for stocks. I know some of the pages are still too stock-oriented but we can work on that. Hope that's ok. Pete 07:25 27 Jun 2003 (UTC)

    • It is correct. Pick up any book about derivatives finance and you will find it. Cambridge is a general dictionary, this is a fairly specialized word. Pcb21| Pete 20:24, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)

moneyness is a measure of the degree to which a derivative is likely

  • Surely this only applies to Options, not derivatives in general?--Sgcook 09:24, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

'Forward Reference Rate'

In Section 1 Example, the concept of Forward Reference Rate is mentioned without a good definition or Wikipedia reference, and the external reference provided seems to be dead. Eoliveri13 (talk) 16:30, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Out-the-money vs. Out-of-the-money[edit]

I see both terms in use on the Internet - are both correct? Is there a region difference in usage (eg UK versus US?) If both are correct presumably both should be mentioned in the article (with usage notes if applicable). Roy Badami (talk) 23:27, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

OED definition[edit]

I was confused upon reading the article's definition of this word. "-ness" implies a quality, where the definition at the lead of the article, doesn't describe a quality, but rather the likelihood that a derivative has a positive value (my assumption is that if -ness describes the abstract quality of something, it should reflect both +ve and -ve values). The OED definition makes a lot more sense in terms of the -ness suffix: "The degree to which an asset can be considered to be equivalent to money, liquidity; the value of an asset in terms of money." (3rd ed.). There may be a disparity between the way in which the word/concept is used practically today, and the way in which it was used historically (the OED provides citations back to 1936, such as the following: "1964 J. Gould & W. L. Kolb Dict. Social Sci. 438/2 It is apparent, of course, that any set of assets will possess a spectrum of ‘moneyness’."). Assuming that the concept reflected in the current Wikipedia article reflects practical usage today (and does not arise from error), would it be worth also providing the OED sense of "moneyness"? --Oldak Quill 01:06, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
