Typically, Supershare Options are traded or embedded in supershare funds. These options are related to Down and Out, Up and Out double barrier options, where the option has value only if the stock or asset price is between the upper and lower barriers, and at expiration, the option provides a payoff equivalent to the stock or asset price divided by the lower strike price (S/X Lower).
