I am only using the demo account and just for fun I tried to place the following type
of bet: I bought 100 options call eur/gbp 9200 (using the fictional money provided in the demo account) and tried to sell
100 options call eur/gbp 9300 (both for the same date). But I was not allowed to do so. As far as I can see my risk was covered by
the eur/gbp 9200 call so I don't see why ig does not allow this trade. Have you faced this problem? And is there a way to deal with it?
(apart from covering the option to sell by huge amounts of cash).
Would any other online trading platform allow this if ig does not?
