SPX options - september expiry not tradable?


PythonTrade86

Question

Hello,

As you can see on this screenshot, SPX options are tradable, apart from the september expiry... 

Why is this expiry not available to trade?

I am frustrated that IG decides which expiries we can trade and which we can't. It also happened last week. I would like an explanation, please.

 

Thank you

Hi @PythonTrade86,

It seems that the dealing desk made the September Options available. Could you please advise if they are available on your side?

Thank you - Arvin

@ArvinIG Yes they are, thank you.

I really found it unfair that IG behaves this way. That is not in the client's interest, to my opinion.

Hi @PythonTrade86,

I believe that the dealing desk didn't add the September options as they are further away, only the closest expiry would be available. But on demand they can make them accessible.

I hope that it helps. If you have any options that are further away that you would like to trade please reach out to IG for them to be available to trade on the platform.

All the best - Arvin

Well, they were tradable, and I was trading them, since 2 or 3 weeks already... 

But it is nice to hear that on request one could get more expiries, good to know!

Thank you very much

    • It would be difficult and the next line of action would be withdrawal of assets to a good alternative exchange or wallet and observe how the whole drama will end 
    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
