When will we get options?

Recommended Posts

As of this morning it appears that charts are no longer working on the old classic platform.


I am an option trader so I cannot migrate to the new platform yet,  do you have an ETA?  I've been waiting months now.  I can edit/close option positions using the new platform, it just appears that I can't open new positions - so surely there's not that much work needed to accommodate them.

There's no reason that you shouldn't be able to access classic charts as this has nothing to do with the migration to the new platform. Please try clicking on the pad lock in your browser address bar and then making sure the "Flash" option is set to "Always allow on this site". From here you'll just need to refresh the page and it should work fine again. Many clients have had the same issue, possibly caused by a recent Windows software update.


You're correct that Options are one of the products which have not yet been moved across to the new platform. This will of course happen in time, and I'll pass on your feedback. You'll still be able to trade Options through the classic platform until they are added to the new. We won't force you over to the new platform without being able to access the markets you regularly trade.


I hope this helps and feel free to get in touch if there's anything else we can help with.

Did you get the charts working on the old platform? I cannot open charts with my imac, but can on my windows laptop. I have latest java on imac. Any suggestions?

    • Wow. Just look at the volatility. The price action is erratic to say the least. This has happened before on quite a few occasions in the past.  In one hour from my initial post to this post the price action has reversed. It is all about waiting for a clear signal for which direction these indices are going to go in. 
    • So you have to admit this S&P chart is as bullish as you could get, traders have been waiting for the Fed who haven't disappointed, have refused to break lower during that wait and are just staring at that ATH just a short reach away. Barring a war there seems nothing to hold back the continued march onward and upward. Daily chart; 
    • I think we now have the potential and it is potential shorting opportunity on Dow Jones (Wall Street), S&P 500 (US 500) and Nasdaq (US Tech 100) as well as other indices. The FTSE 100 is not looking too good in advance of Brexit. The 'daily' chart is looking rather bearish. The price action is looking bearish. However the price has not breached any of the key moving average indicators as of yet for the US 500. Hence why I am using the word potential in terms of trading opportunity. Some of the ultra aggressive traders will already be short the S&P 500 and other similar indices but if they are wrong the price does not continue downwards then they will be out quickly.
