What is the normal spread between buy and sell of knock-out options

Question

Guest hkoptions

What is the normal spread between buy and sell of knock-out options?

I want to calculate in pip terms as well as in percentage terms how much will my cost be in terms of return trade?

Knock-out probably has single entry point where spread is there. 

How does knock-out works in terms of vanilla fx futures options where you end up paying 4 pips 99% of the time for two-way trade?

How different is knock-out from vanilla options?

Hi @hkoptions, have a look at the KO info page linked below and compare with the link for regular options, on demo look at filling out the deal tickets for risk and returns.

KOs are intended for shorter time duration trades so have a tighter spread but instead incur overnight funding charges.

I don't think IG does FX 'futures options' (they do for indices, commodities and interest rates).

For FX there is dfb or forwards (futures) or options and KO options.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
