An option with a strike price equal to the underlying futures price. Chicago Mercantile Exchange Glossary
An option or warrant where the exercise price is equal to the current market price of the asset subject to the option. For example, a call option with an exercise price of 100p on a share with a share price of 100p is at-the-money. More generally, however, an at-the-money option is an option whose exercise price is nearest to that of the underlying asset. For example, where an option has strike prices at intervals of 10p, e.g. 90p, 100p, 110p etc, if the underlying asset has a price of 97p, the at-the-money option is the 100p strike, which is the nearest strike price to the underlying price.
