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
