Selling PUTS query


Recommended Posts

Hi

I have a spreadbetting account with IG, I sold PUTS in a share and was expecting to be given a credit but instead I have to  wait until the PUT expires or sell at a profit before I am given a credit. Why does IG do that when other brokers give you a credit as soon as you sell the PUT?

Secondly given that I dont have a credit , and if my position is tested and I want to rollover can this still be done cosidering I am not given credits up front  as I assumed having the credit upfront improves the cashflow?

 

thanks

Mak,

You forget you are spread betting. You are not selling the option....you are betting on the price of the option.

If you sell Dollar/JPY....do you receive yen?  Of course not, be cause you are betting on the movement of the price, NOT trading the underlying.

Best of luck.
