We're offering weekly equity options on the platform for some stocks over earning season. Meaning you don't have to call us if you want to trade certain equity options. This week it's Beyond Meat IncWe're also offering Tesla but that will stay on the platform going forward whereas the weekly options will change depending on which week of earnings season we're in. 

 

What is an Equity option?

Equity options are a form of derivative used exclusively to trade shares as the underlying asset.

In essence, equity options work in an extremely similar way to other options, such as forex or commodities. They offer the trader the right, but not the obligation, to purchase (or sell) a set amount of shares at a certain level (referred to as the ‘strike price’) before it expires. To buy an option, traders will pay a premium.

When are these available to trade?

These equity options will be available in the main session (14:30 - 21:00 UK time). 

Where to find them?

You can find them under 'Weekly US Equity options' on the left list on your web platform.

I'll keep asking until this question gets answered.

Why don't you lay out these options in the same intuitive format as the commodity, index and FX options already available on the platform? Also, why not list them under "OPT" with those others?

Also please note that in the pop-in-from-the-side display, before you click "Add to workspace" the strikes and PUT/CALL designator are visible for Tesla but completely absent for Beyond Meat except briefly on mouse-over.

I will second this suggestion!  Viewing as an options chain is so much more friendly.

Presumably this would also enable the implied volatilities to be displayed, which helps enormously with assessing value and timing trades, especially as the IV seems to vary considerably through the day.

hoping IG adds options for many more stocks. Its a shame as this is the biggest flaw to the platform. So much more potential for IG but i dont know why theyre holding back.
