4. Once you have placed the order, you can view your position, including unrealized profit and loss, time to expiration, and breakeven price under [Positions]. Your options will be shown on the chart too.
5. Since Binance Option is American-style options, you can settle the options at the strike price any time before the expiration date. Go to [Positions], tap [Settle] to realize the profit and loss of your options, then tap [Confirm]. If you do not settle the options before the expiration date, it will be automatically settled or exercised upon the expiration date.
*Extend your options (Available for iOS 2.21.0 and Android 1.32.0 or above)

To extend your options, tap [Extend] to select the preferred time, and you can see the premium you need to pay for the extension. Tap [Pay to Extend] to confirm. You can then see the updated Premium and Time to Expiration under [Positions] or [Extension History].
