I am considering transferring my SIPP over to IG. I would like to know if I can trade US options in the SIPP. I will give two examples:

1. I hold 3800 shares in CTSH, which is trading at $53. I would like to sell 38 contracts of the CTSH JULY 2020  $55 CALLS . Would this be possible ?

2. I would like to sell 38 contracts of CTSH JULY 2020 $50  PUTS. Can I do this in my SIPP provided there is suffcient cash to make the purchase if I have to ?

Kind regards

Gavin Vadivalloo

no, but some  option dealing platforms will allow  a select few sipps to “link “ to them eg interactive brokers and saxotrader will allow option dealing in atsipp.co.uk SIPP ....I have a feeling the type of options strategies might be limited to covered calls since margin is probably not allowed in a sipp...so you may be able to do 1. but maybe not 2.(except if u have the cash to cover the put)

    • Recent commentary from a number of high-profile Federal Reserve members indicates their willingness to keep up the pressure on fighting inflation.   The incoming consumer price inflation (CPI) data on Thursday will be key and may surprise on the upside as has been the case for much of this year. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at EUR/USD.          
    • Market data to trade the week starting 10 October: US earnings; US CPI For equity traders it’s the start of another period of intense activity as third quarter earnings begin to be released. IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph FSTA, looks at the chart of JP Morgan (JPM) as an opener. Axel also examines a trade around US inflation and chooses to analyse the S&P 500.          
    • SEPTEMBER JOBS REPORT KEY POINTS: The September jobs report showed that the U.S. economy added 263,000 workers last month versus expectations of a gain of 250,000 payrolls. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to 3.5%, two-tenths of a percent below forecasts Average hourly earnings rose 0.3% on a monthly basis and 5.0% compared to a year ago, matching estimates The resilient labor market is likely to keep the Fed on a hawkish path     MARKET REACTION TO NFP REPORT Immediately following the release of the September jobs report, the U.S. dollar, as measured by the DXY index, spiked higher, bolstered by a solid jump in U.S. Treasury yields. Meanwhile, S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures plunged into negative territory, falling more than 1.5% at the time of writing. Strong labor market data is likely to keep the Fed on the hawkish path, prompting policymakers to deliver additional interest rate hikes and preventing them from pivoting prematurely toward a dovish posture. This scenario should favor the U.S. dollar, but could create strong headwinds for equities.   Oct 7, 2022 | DailyFX Diego Colman, Strategist
