Options Exercise Process
A more advanced tutorial very similar to our assignment process video. We'll break down the exact process that happens behind the scenes if you decide to exercise your contract. From the exercise request to your broker and the OCC's handling of the assignment to the ultimate party who is given shares or stock. Though we rarely exercise and take possession of stock, it's important to know how it's handled. That way, if you do want to take the stock long or short you can do it quickly and with 100% confidence.
