Hi @SOA   options are a type of CFD, see the links below to see how each work. Options have not yet migrated to the new platform so you'll need to open the old platform to trade them.

(if in Australia replace the uk with au in the links)

To add to @Caseynotes point, when you are dealing with IG you are doing so on a CFD (if of course you're in your CFD account rather than say, your share dealing account). 

A CFD is a way to trade by setting up a contract which tracks the price of a product. Via a CFD you can trade different products, one of which is an option. An option is then based off a further asset. To try and simplify it visually...

  • You trade a CFD with IG and you can trade
    • FX
    • Shares
    • Commodities
    • Options ... and with the options themselves you can trade 
      • FX options
      • Share options
      • Commodity options

    • Sometime one way to avoid touching one's PF is to participate in these kind of event to earn some passive income and perharps use some the proceeds to invest more. I am not quite friendly with bot but will refer it to friend with a trading community where i also get signals. I will appreciate you also share the link to the announcement for more details
    • Despite the fact that i have my reservation on some meme coin; i feel attention could tilting towards BNB chain meme coins. HODL was bullish yesterday upon launch and i may also look into CATA for some market analysis and possible entry cos missing out on most of the Solana chain meme can not repeat itself again haha.
    • I still beleive Pepe is still a strong competitor for shib and after Doge they should be among the few meme coin to hodl but would appreciate your analysis on HODL a new meme coin on BNB chain that has hugely pumped yesterday on Pancakeswap and Bitget. Its mainnet launch and initial listing was also yesterday.
