  1. Unbelievable. I have sold FT100 February options at nearly the same Strike price. 7600 on demo account and 7575 on live account and unbelievably the demo one looks like it’s about to expire worthless despite not expiring until 19th Feb and the real one currently trades at £400 down. Starting to think my demo trading success before I traded real money with bogus!!!!!
  2. Thanks for response. You are absolutely correct, I won’t be doing that again.
  3. Hi, I made two deposits of £5k to my CFD account and was charged £199.50 both times, any idea why? Seems very harsh and way to much.
  4. When selling US500 put options (presumably the same as S&P 500?) and FT100 options on my demo account on this platform, I can settle (buy back) anytime meaning then that the two options at least on this platform are American style options then?
  5. Hi, In my demo account I sold 2 FT100 put options in the money that have literally just expired. The sale of in the put options was profitable, but surely I should now own FT100 contracts that are losing money but I cannot see these.
  6. How do I know what is an American or European option? Particularly regarding buying or selling S&P 500 & FT100 options?
  7. When writing put options on these platform do I get assigned the 100 x index (or stock) when the market price is at or below the strike price or if the market price is at or below the strike price on expiration date? Or as it’s a CFD the option is either profitable or not and I am not assigned the index or stock? Also, if I am assigned the index or stock, does this also apply to paper trading? As the other day my paper trade put option I sold was above market price but I was not assigned.
  8. Do you quote option prices for UK shares? If so, where do I find them? And how do I know how about shares are contained within the option to buy or sell?
  9. Hi, unfortunately it says I have insufficient funds. I am trying to sell an Apple call option, I owe 300 Apple shares in my demo account. is 300 shares too few?

  11. On my demo account I’ve bought 300 Apple Shares but how do I sell Apple call options to complete a covered call?
