Extrinsic Value

Extrinsic value is also known as time value. The amount of time remaining in the option is a key value for pricing and determines how long the underlying has to move up or down at current or future volatilityOptions pricing consists of two components: extrinsic value, and intrinsic value. Intrinsic value is defined by how much the option is in the money against the underlying (stock) at its current price.
