Option trading

Question

Hi there, I have not been able to get a consistent answer from the IG support team, phone and email tell me different things.

 

I hold CFD and a Share Trading account both on IG with permissions to trade on the US market with my W-8BEN all approved and so on.

 

I want to write put options either on the NASDAQ or NYSE, but it is not clear to me if this works the way it is ment to or even have the ability to do so.

 

Does anyone else do this on IG or elsewhere? Love your advice on using this playform if it is possible and how ypu actually go trading and where you do this.

Hi ,

 

We offer Equity options in our CFD accounts, but please note that these are a phone dealing only product. You can both buy and sell options on a number of markets. For example; US, UK, European. Upon expiry these will always be cash settled and not stock settled.

 

Please see costs below:

 

US: $5 commission per lot, 1 lot = equivalent of 100 shares, minimum size 5 lots (dependent on option premium this can be less).

UK: £10 commission per lot, 1 lot = equivalent of 1000 shares, minimum size 1 lot.

 

Hopefully this answers your query! Any furthers queries please don't hesitate to contact us on our dealing line 020 7896 0000.

 

Thanks,

Michael

    • Thanks @CharlotteIG ! That's reassuring. I'm sure IG have already seen this, but someone on twitter linked to this Policy Statement from the FCA, saying that it will come into effect on 6th January: https://www.fca.org.uk/publication/policy/ps20-10.pdf "Prohibiting the sale to retail clients of investment products that reference cryptoassets"  Incidentally the trader  on twitter who linked to that, was commenting on the recent drop in bitcoin  and said "Crypto exchanges started announcing liquidation of UK customer accounts ..not surprising BTC sold off." Best wishes, Cate
    • Hey @Tezzza,  If you're receiving statements in the post you can stop by emailing us with a request to stop sending them.  If you're referring to the emailed statements you receive everyday this can't be stopped. Once of the regulatory guidelines is to keep clients informed on their trading. Our email statements is how we do that. However, some clients have a separate folder in their emails to forward these.  All the best 
    • Hey Cate,  It is true that the regulators are looking to put a ban on Cryptos however there hasn't been enough information yet for us to take action. When we have more information we will reach out to client regarding their positions.  I completely understand and closing positions isn't something we want to do but we will have to stay inline with regulator guidelines. Please know, we will keep you updated.  All the best.
