Selling options and option spreads


16delta

Question

Hi

In a normal spread betting account is it possible to sell options, for example sell an out of the money put?  If so how is the margin calculated? It seems to be possible in the demo account.

Also, can defined risk spreads be sold for example selling credit spread with puts? If so then how would the margin work here?

 

Thank you

    • Very strange, when you think that they handle rights issues properly (including on CFD and spread-bet accounts) yet those similarly involve the holder having to make an election whether or not to take up their shares.

    • IG.com made me loose thousands of pounds as it does not pay the Hammerson enhanced scrip dividend. You are the only major share dealing company that does this. If I held shares with Hammerson in a dealing account on IG on 28 October 2021 you will not receive the enhanced scrip dividend. Last time it meant receiving a cash dividend of 0.2p rather than shares valued at 2p, a huge difference of 10 times. IG.com has done a rights issue Corporate Action for Hammerson before, so it is baffling why they are unable to complete this FTSE250 Corporate Action. Pathetic
