Hi All,

I want to trade stock options NOT CFD on options. Simple, regular stock options such as Apple/Amazon weekly stock options. It seems IG broker allows me to trade CFD on options but not stock options. Is that true? can I trade typical, simple stock options and spreads? I want to combine a few options and create spreads such as iron condor and covered call/put.

Thanks in advance guys,

You can indeed to this, however given we don't have the functionality to do so on the platform yet, you would need to give us a call. Once the trade is open you can monitor and see any running profit and loss online, however you would need to close to deal.

Hi there,

Just following up with Reza's question last year, does IG offer trade stock options now on single company stocks and not CFDs? I would like to place some call/put options and certain companies but don't see the option in the menu for it in my share platform.

'Not enough demand' :D

Maybe IG has those IT consultants who get paid lots of money to swan around going to meetings and treating each other like cr@p instead of doing some actual work.  Those types are quite common in the financial service industry I've heard (I wouldn't know).

    • Hi @DominicWalsh   Thanks for sharing your analysis on EURCAD.   All the best - MongiIG
    • EURCAD was consolidating for 3 weeks in a wide horizontal trading range on a daily. Its support was finally broken this week. I believe that the pair may go lower now. Next support - 1.428
    • Charting the Markets: 8 February FTSE 100 near record high, DAX 40 and S&P 500 also higher on Fed chair's speech. EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD prices oversold in uptrend. And gold and oil prices rally, as lumber drops back.
