Deposits Incurred on open positions

Recommended Posts

 

Fairly new to IG. 

Just need to confirm, once a trade is closed (share option), I presume all "deposits incurred on open positions" is taken by IG once the closure has taken place?  Or has it already been considered during the time the trade was held?

 

Also, would like to discuss to best way to trade long share options (least fees incurred).

Hi , thanks for your post and welcome!

 

If you are trading options, the deposit on the position will depend on whether you are buying or selling the option.  If you are buying an option - either a call or a put - then this is essentially a limited risk trade, and your margin is the maximum you could lose.  If you are selling an option, this is margined in the same way as if you were selling the underlying.  Either way, your margin (deposit) is held aside while the trade is running, and released once the trade is closed in your favour.

 

For equity options, you just need to call our dealing desk (0207 896 0000) for quotes and to trade, and they would be happy to discuss any aspect of the options with you.  The reason we don't quote share option prices on the platform is simply because there are so many different strikes and expiries to list - once you have dealt however it would appear on your account to monitor.

 

Please feel free to start a thread to discuss options trading on the Community!

 

Thanks,

 

Hannah
