Options on Fx Fututures

Recommended Posts

Helllo!

Are fx options on ig , options on futures type securities?

Does ig host  its own option on futures exchange?

How does IV get calculated?

Is the  iv reading reliable based on the volume  of  the synthetic exchange?

Thank you!!!

Hi @sywmm,  IG has two options platforms, the Knockout Options on the new online platform and the classic options on the old platform.

To find the latter go to 'My IG' and the arrow for drop down to open old platform (see pic below)

All of the options available on the old platform are available through the new platform by clicking on Options (the one above Knock-Outs), although they are presented very differently. I think (not 100%) you can only access the old platform if you were a client before the new one superseded it; newer clients won't have that option to launch it, @Caseynotes.

    • Apropos of market abuse, it must be good to play golf with Orange Fury and place your bets before the tweets ... Unknown actors may have made billions from the turmoil Donald Trump has created in the markets through erratic tweets, shoot-from-the-hip foreign policy, and the trade war with China, according to a new report. A Vanity Fair deep-dive into stock market activity has uncovered several instances where advantageous trades were made suspiciously close to market-moving events.   https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/mystery-traders-made-1-8bn-191335812.html
