Recommended Posts

Every day I see guys on CNBC talking about OPTION contracts and how they are a great way to make money.

I have been trading long enough to know where there is Reward there is also risk.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get started trading options?  

Thank you

The main reason options are so popular in the US is because CFDs (spread bets) are banned by SEC, ESMA one step beyond.

With SB you get knocked out as soon as your stop is hit.  This forces you to keep coming back for more.  With an option, you can sit on it till the last minute if necessary.  Hence less repeat business, so not offered to UK pond life.

you can trade options with IG or other brokers

    • Hi.. I'm aware that there are I think monthly or quarterly fees for an account, and these can be minimised by doing X amount of trades per month.  But if I had for example 2 share dealing accounts and an ISA account (which I do), will I have to pay 3 sets of account fees? And if I do, do my number of trades have to be in just one to take advantage of reduction of fees across the board or it just applies to that account? Hope that makes sense, Thanks ,😊
    • NFP TALKING POINTS: This morning’s NFP report disappointed on the headline number and in Average Hourly Earnings. On the positive side, the unemployment rate fell to 4.2%, below the Fed’s threshold for ‘maximum employment.’ This morning’s NFP report had little to be excited about with the headline figure printing at a paltry 235k v/s the expected 550k. Also disappointing was the Average Hourly Earnings portion of the report, which denotes inflation in the more important mechanism of wage growth. On the positive side, the unemployment rank dropped to 4.2%, below the 4.5% expected and the 4.6% from last month. This is important as the Fed has been saying that they’re looking for ‘maximum employment’ before tilting policy in a more-hawkish direction. The Fed’s line-in-the-sand for maximum employment is 4.5% so, we’re there. The bank has previously said that they’d like to see multiple months of this before making any knee-jerk decisions, but this is something that will likely be noted at the December FOMC rate decision. In response to the this morning’s NFP report, little was clear across markets. The US Dollar put in a quick drop but that was met with a bullish response. As of this writing, 45 minutes after the release, and the US Dollar is trading at a session high after recovering the entirety of the NFP-fueled sell-off. As I had shared yesterday, the bullish theme in the US Dollar remains a major push point across FX markets, and this morning’s reaction to the NFP print has proven this to be correct again.
