FX put option mistake


Snail

Question

Just made a terrible mistake. Opened a put option to expire in June on usd/cad.

not realising the sell price was at 0 (buy is currently at 8). Will this value actually increase at any point if the usd/cad moved in my favour?

Thanks for your reply. I’ve just realised the actual error I’ve made. I opened a 12300 strike price option instead of a 13300 as intended 🤦‍♂️

Ill try giving IG a call but I can’t see them reversing the trade.

As the 12300 is so far OTM they may scratch that - the prem hasn't moved.

The 13300 is obviously ATM now with prems all over the shop so I doubt they'd fill you on an old price, especially as market has pulled off since then so the prem on puts should have increased.

But still - I'd be surprised if they didn't reverse the first one.

    • how did you manage to buy those shares in 2 different accounts synced to the same instant. i would imagine the price to change if not. Under the statements, the Past activity report may help with the investigation. i cant think of anything else.
    • You can keep insulting, that is your style when you have no actual reply. There is something that I will never do, and that is to say that I am more intelligent than anyone else, even in an argument. You on the contrary keep telling everyone, not only me,  that dares to challenge you all sort of undermining insults, putting yourself on top of them instantly. Giving yourself the title of "intelligent". So here is one for you: "Tell me what you bluff about and I´ll tell you what you lack off"
