The time value of an option is the value over and above intrinsic value that the market places on the options. It can be considered as the value of the continuing exposure to the movement in the underlying product price that the option provides.

The amount of money option buyer are willing to pay for an option in the anticipation that, over time, a change in the underlying futures price will cause the option to increase in value.

However, time value is not proportional but tends to more nearly approximate a square root function.

Option value associated with the time left to maturity since during the life an option can move in and out of the money.

The difference between the premium paid for an option and the intrinsic value. As an option approaches expiration, the time value erodes, eventually to zero.

Refers to that value of an option premium that is separate from and, for the case of an in-the-money option, in addition to, intrinsic value.
