I am struggling to trade calls and puts. I think I have the wrong account? Please help?



I am new and have opened a share dealing account with I have bought some shares in 8 different companies.

Now I would like to sell calls and puts, but can't find the trade options button. 

Please can someone advise me what to do and how to swap account if required.

Many Thanks

Hi @Stu51

You can trade equity options only on a CFD or spread betting account. We only have a few equity options available online as illustrated in the screenshot. The rest are on phone dealing only. Meaning you would need to call in to trade. 

All the best,

    • In this week’s Trade of the Week, IG market analyst Josh Mahony looks to go short gold with a stop-loss at $1,690 and a downside target at $1,615. He also looks at last week’s trade, which was short the DAX.

    • Stocks in Asia staged an impressive rally following the gains on Wall Street on the first day of Q4. A surprisingly-dovish move from the RBA saw the central bank raise rates, but only by 25ps instead of the expected 50bps. The bank left the door open to more increases, but cited the recent rapid pace of tightening as a reason to ease off for the time being. European futures are pointing towards further gains after yesterday's positive session, which came after a weak period for stocks that ended Q3 on a poor note and left some indices at their lowest levels since 2020. Today's calendar is light on data, but includes speeches from three Fed officials and the president of the ECB.
