More options?

Recommended Posts

Options are a great middle ground between shares and SB/CFD, because OTOH you don't get stopped out and can hang on to your position till the end, and OTOH you can still trade on leverage without owning anything.

Would love to see more instruments covered on the web platform, including individual stocks.

We do offer equity options but they're only traded over the phone :( 

When buying, yes you only put down the premium which is great because it's also the maximum you can lose. 

When selling though you have to put down the margin as if you were trading the underlying. 

 

With our new strategy we're hoping to bring out more options, if you have any suggestions let me know.

I'm not the sharpest crayon in the box, so I would find it difficult to trade over the phone without seeing the data in front of me.  That would be a painful process for me and the person on the other end of the phone.

    • There is the 'potential' for a breakout in Natural Gas from these price areas. 
    • One of our financial writers have written a piece on smoking vs vaping vs cannabis. Really interesting read. Here's a snip:  Main points:  Big Tobacco turns smoke into vapour Vaping: UK and US take different approaches … with different results Altria’s JUUL investment costs it dearly US vaping crisis highlights importance of a diverse portfolio Can Big Tobacco thrive as cannabis legalisation gains momentum? Altria gets stung for early move into cannabis Can vaping and other smokeless devices become key to the cannabis market?   Find the full article here: Vaping or cannabis: where’s the growth for Big Tobacco?  
    • I see a trend here ... British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman refused to comment on Monday when asked about the hiring of an adviser who has discussed the benefits of forced contraception and said data showed the U.S. black population had lower IQ than white people. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-politics-adviser/johnsons-office-silent-as-rivals-call-for-adviser-to-be-sacked-idUKKBN20B1NI
