Lack of GOOD Options Trading Platforms in the UK


Recommended Posts

Dear IG,

I've researched what's on "offer" in the UK in terms of options Trading platforms and there really isn't much competition. IG/PRT are definitely ahead, (although Saxo Bank has a reasonable and complex platform but with no Option Charts and Interactive Brokers have needlessly over complicated theirs). Are there any plans to expand upon what's available for Option traders or to launch a new all in one Option Trading Platform (like Ameritrade's)?

I appreciate PRT also has Option Charts and Option Chains displaying IV, Delta and the Greeks but it'd be nice to have a one stop platform so I don't have to go to or use lots of other resources like online or in Excel:

POP probability calculators/"Moneyness" Probability Percentages,
Volatility Smiles,
Risk/Reward Tables, 
Strategy Builders and Optimisers,
IV Structure Charts for different Contract Lengths,
Probability Cones,
Put/Call Ratios,    
Open Interest,
Black Scholes Calculator,

Are there any plans by IG to expand on what they currently offer as fat as Options trading goes?

Cheers
Bard.

Hi Bard, 

Thanks for the feedback. 

We are always looking at ways to improve our offering. There is work in place to show some greeks on the platform. However there is still no estimated date of completion. Regardless we appreciate the feedback and we will share this post with the relevant desk for consideration. 

All the best, 

Anda

    • Telcoin's definitely shaking things up with affordable mobile transfers! But MOB sounds interesting for secure everyday payments. Abra seems like a one-stop shop for global money stuff. Telcoin being on Bitget is cool, but competition is healthy! Maybe Telcoin can focus on low-cost remittances while MobileCoin tackles daily purchases. Telcoin's not the only player, but they're definitely a piece of the puzzle.
    • Telcoin is a frontrunner in leveraging blockchain technology for affordable and accessible mobile money transfers. Intrigued by this concept? Let's explore other projects working to revolutionize how we send and receive money around the world, with a focus on mobile solutions. MobileCoin (MOB), this project aims to provide a secure and private mobile-first cryptocurrency specifically designed for everyday transactions. Abra (ABRA), this global investment app allows users to buy, sell, and trade various cryptocurrencies and assets, including sending and receiving money internationally. So, is Telcoin the only game in town for mobile money transfers cause they got listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe not! There are established players and innovative startups tackling this challenge. What do you think? Is Telcoin the future of mobile money transfers, or just a piece of the puzzle? Have you explored any other mobile money transfer projects? Share your thoughts in the comments!
    • Mande Network's vision of an "Onchain Credibility Hub" for Web3, powered by "Proof-of-Credibility" and a "Human Capital Network," is intriguing. Decentralized Society (DESO), this project aims to create a social network where users own their data and can monetize their content and contributions. Human Protocol (HMN), this platform connects skilled individuals with tasks and projects, focusing on building a more efficient and transparent talent marketplace. Is Mande Network the ultimate solution for valuing human capital in Web3 cause they are listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe! It's a promising project, but there are others addressing this space. What do you think? Is Mande Network a revolutionary force in human capital valuation, or just one step in the evolution of Web3? Have you explored any other projects focused on human capital or reputation in the decentralized space? Share your thoughts in the comments!
