The strike price is the price at which a derivatives contract can be exercised -- the strike price is independent of the spot price and is agreed upon by the parties entering the contract. For example: A holder of a call option for Exxon-Mobil with a strike price of $82 allows the holder to buy Exxon-Mobil shares at $82, irrespective of what the market price may be.

Strike price is one of the key determinants of the price of the derivative. For call options, those with higher strike prices options are normally priced lower than those with lower strike price, while for put options it is the opposite.

The strike price determines whether the option is in the money or out of the money.
