Options trading doesn't go live immediately at market open



Just learning on a Spread Betting Demo account and I want to practice trading options on US shares.

I've got my screen setup in advance of market open with all the charts I want and red dots showing the market is closed - as expected.

When 14:30 UK time comes round the prices start moving as expected but the Options screens still show the market closed and I cannot open positions.

I've tried refreshing the screen but that didn't work.

Today and yesterday it was 6 minutes before I could place an options trade - missing out on the early volatility.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
