Improve Spreads on Options

Recommended Posts

Can you improve the spreads on the options products please? I just sold a Call and a Put in the SP500 in Feb, £10 point and I know it'll cost nothing to close but as soon as I place the trade I'm £30 down. The only reason I didn't place it with Interactive Brokers is you need a minimum £10000 account size. When TastyWorks starts accepting international clients at the end of the month and has a minimum account size of £2000, the same trade will cost me $2 to open and nothing to close. Thanks.

Hi , thanks for the post.

 

There's a fairly complex algorithm as to how we price our options, and we'll then wrap our spread around this which is determined by our volatility desk and by general business decisions, so I'm afraid we would not really be able to change the prices you see for the calls and puts on the platform.  We can't comment on how other providers may price similar markets, so apologies you're not fully happy with them.  I can certainly pass on your feedback to the desk!

 

Thanks,

Hannah

    • Would this be useful to anyone, Prevailing market sentiment graphs?  I have found a lot of good success using this method trading stocks. It makes use of the Hull Moving Average. Not just using the Hull Moving average however but I have found that it is surprisingly accurate.  Would this be useful to anyone? I will update these graphs most days if people find it interesting for both the FTSE100 and FTSE250 with general market sentiment. I have annotated the graphs so that if the prevailing sentiment is up/long it will show in green and if it's down/short then it will show as red.   I can produce other graphs for individual stocks if there is enough interest. Feel free to fork, update, message me for any questions etc.  Graphs
