Warrant

A warrant confers the right to buy (call) or sell (put) a specific amount of a specific underlying instrument at a specific price at a specific point in time (European-style warrant) or at any point during a specified period of time (American-style warrant).

Warrants are essentially a securitised form of standardised options and are usually traded on a securities exchange.
