Options Trading - Tesla


WokMan

Recommended Posts

I am new to Options trading, but keen to explore and learn.  Ideally looking at virtual money on a stock like Tesla.    Can you trade Tesla options on IG.  IG currently seems to do Options for Indices, Commodities and FX.   Or am i missing something here.   

Finally, havent figured out difference between CFD and Options...   Lots to learn.. 

Any other broker recommendation also welcome (if allowed here)

 

BTW, i cant see to find this listed in my IG windows

Hi @WokMan

Thanks for reaching out and your question.

You can trade weekly and monthly share options in our web platform. Rather than finding them in the options flyout, each has their own watchlist. For example, you’d trade Tesla from the ‘Tesla Options’ watchlist:

CFD trading is the method of speculating on the underlying price of an asset – like shares, indices, commodities, forex and more – on a trading platform like ours. A CFD – short for ‘contract for difference’ – is the type of derivative that enables you to trade the price movements of these financial markets with us. With this form of trading, you don’t own the underlying asset – you’re only getting exposure to its price movements. For information click here: CFDs

Options trading is the act of buying and selling options. These are contracts that give the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell an underlying asset at a set price, if it moves beyond that price within a set timeframe. For information click here: Options trading

I hope this helps.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
