Abstract: Let $ Y$ be a sublattice of a vector lattice $ X$. We consider the problem of identifying the smallest order closed sublattice of $ X$ containing $ Y$. It is known that the analogy with topological closure fails. Let $ \overline {Y}^o$ be the order closure of $ Y$ consisting of all order limits of nets of elements from $ Y$. Then $ \overline {Y}^o$ need not be order closed. We show that in many cases the smallest order closed sublattice containing $ Y$ is in fact the second order closure $ \overline {\overline {Y}^o}^o$. Moreover, if $ X$ is a $ \sigma $-order complete Banach lattice, then the condition that $ \overline {Y}^o$ is order closed for every sublattice $ Y$ characterizes order continuity of the norm of $ X$. The present paper provides a general approach to a fundamental result in financial economics concerning the spanning power of options written on a financial asset.
