swing option
A type of exotic option that confers to its holder the right to purchase or sell a quantity of a specific asset at a certain price over a set of time periods, which concludes at a pre-determined expiration date. The unique characteristic of a swing option for a Forex Trader or Hedger is that they get to decide whether they prefer to buy or sell the currency pair at the option's strike price on each of the periodic dates.
