FTSE 100 Weekly Options - valuation on expiry?


Sam252

Question

Hi IG (or anyone that can help me!)

I have called a few times today to no avail.  I am trying to get a clear and definitive answer as to when exactly the FTSE 100 weekly options are valued on expiry? 

The system states that the dealing deadline is 16:29 but it does not say when the option is valued for the purposes of settlement.

I had one person tell me it was at 'market close' but they could not confirm what time this was exactly or what market even, and just kept saying 'market close'.  The LSE closes at 4:30pm but the futures market that the options are priced against as I understand it closes at market close in the US (currently GMT 2100hrs).   

I am just after the time exactly that these options are valued for the purposes of settlement.  I am not after the dealing deadline or even the settlement time when I can expect proceeds available in my account.  

Thank you in advance.

Thanks Anda for getting back to me so quickly, much appreciated.  

So if I understand you correctly, following a 5 min auction which starts at market close at 4.30pm, it is the spot price at 4.35pm that the options are valued for the purposes of settlement?  

 

Thanks

@AndaIG Could information like this not be included in more detail on the info tabs? Often the expired options continue to update even though the settlement price has already been determined so it's hard to guess when or at what equivalent price one should roll or trade into the underlying.

Also, an option to settle into an underlying product or roll into the next month rather than cash settle would be a useful feature for many traders.

    • Hi    when I try to buy the tickers SDIV and KBWD the platform does not allow me. This is strange as I have a broker account in France where I can easily buy these products. the MIFID retail legislation is related to CFD and margin, hence the reason must be different, can anybody help me?   Thanks
