Help - Vanilla Options profit

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, quick newbie question...

I'd like to buy 1 contract Vanilla Option US 500 4400 CALL, when I select the amount of contracts to buy there's a note saying "1 USD per point",

does it mean that if the US500 index will raise to 4500 I'll have 100USD profit?

if not, how is profit calculated?

Thanks in advance for you help, Luigi

Thank you very much for your fast reply

One more question, how is the price of the option calculated?

for instance, at the moment the price of a Vanilla Option US 500 4400 CALL is about 279USD per contract

and the US 500 Future is about 4383

How do you get the 279USD price?

Thanks, Luigi

Hi @LuigiLuigi

Thanks for the query

We price our options based on the Black-Scholes model. This is a mathematical model that will calculate option prices looking at the following variables: Value of the underlying asset, strike price, volatility and time until expiration. The model will automatically derive a price which is then displayed on the platform. This is a brief summary but you are welcome to research the model to delve into the detail. 

All the best

    • 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
