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

    • 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 🤞
