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

    • The solution that CETUS provides to Defi are enormous hence the reason it has been gaining adoption since hitting spotlight through various CEX listing especially Bitget. With CETUS, LPs can earn more transaction fees efficiently while traders can enjoy low-slippage trading around the spot price during their swaps, a feature that is not very common in the Defi ecosystem. With the exposure CETUS is enjoying since listed on Bitget, am optimistic of more price surge hence it's advisable to buy and HODL or perhaps take part in the event to earn some free airdrops.
    • Conducting research recently and checking through crypto journal handles, I came across centralised exchanges ranked based on the number of visitors on the website alone(not including the app). For users seeking information, higher ranking websites are perceived as more relevant and trustworthy, they can be more helpful for comparing products and services and higher ranking websites can also be seen as offering a better user experience. Following the recent occurrence with the top ranking exchange on the list, it simply shows that this parameter can't tell everything about centralised exchanges and how well they handle regulations in different parts of the world. This is why I'd suggest exchange with regulation compliances and the most important needs like simple UI, low trading fee and good features like copy trading, because they are the most important things traders need to have good success.
