Quanto Option

A quanto option is an exotic type of option. This works as a cross option that uses a different type of currency than what one is currently using in that the strike is marked through a different currency. It has an exchange rate that is set at a fixed rate. For instance, an American can invest in a stock index in Europe and settle an option in American dollars instead of Euros.
