Option trading

Question

Guest Gibbo

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

    • Yesterday, the market was divided, so I stayed out. Today, I predicted that there would be a relief rally on DAX (Germany) 40 in the morning. Therefore, I went long at the cash open and made 170 points. Did anyone else have a similar experience?
    • I've always found the idea of combining Web3 and real estate intriguing. Now, with Parcl Protocol from Parcl Labs, that curiosity is becoming tangible. This platform offers a new approach to investing in real estate prices from cities like Miami Beach and New York, using current price data. What makes Parcl unique is its emphasis on decentralized real estate trading. It enables the buying and selling of real estate assets anytime, anywhere, through a decentralized exchange.If you are holding PRCL their native token you can  participate in governing the Protocol. Plus, there are perks like Perpetual Network Incentives, offering extra benefits to users. The numbers tell an impressive story: Parcl Protocol is a notable DeFi app in the Solana ecosystem, with over $180M+ locked in. In a short span, it has facilitated trades of over 2.1M square feet of real estate exposure, equivalent to 1,400+ properties.The total traded volume? A significant $940M+.with tokens listing on exchanges like Bitget, the platform's reach and potential only continue to grow, Could Parcl be a game-changer in real estate? (Edited)
