European Style Options can only be exercised when they expire. Most Index Options are European Style, but Stock Options are normally American Style. European Style Options are viewed as less valuable than American Style to Option buyers because the Exercise terms are more restrictive, but Sellers of Options (Options Writers) may view the lack of Early Assignment risk to be an advantage.
