  1. Hi Andy Yes , if you have bought a put, and if it is worthless at expiration (ie the index is above 4400) then what you paid is debited from your cash….
  2. can you post a screenshot?….did you buy or sell and was it a put or call?
  3. @CharlotteIG Hi, I have a spreadbet (not cfd) acct and want to know if i trade options on individual US stocks (by phone only) is the minimum contract size £1 (or USD equivalent) a point , or is it a significantly higher figure as per cfd trading? Thanks
  4. no, uk government regs only allow isa funds to be held in £ ......this doesn’t apply to a general investment acct ...(but of course you then lose tge tax free benefits of an isa!)
  5. they are cash settled, so you can either sell now or leave until expiration
  6. if you are closing a position , you are buying to close, not buying to open?
  7. theres a search at top of my screen ‘IG community Activity Search” occasionally when i’ve logged into my account It has gone to classic version , but I haven’t seem options there Except for the few us earning season options , all other stock options are phone only...
  8. Sorry Amavi , as I said above “ I would say you have until midnight on the 5th April to put your money in for this tax year “ ..... “ . Then from 6th April onwards you can put in next tax years allowance and use immediately “.. Unless I’m mistaken you are saying you have put this years allowance and also next years as well?..so you have put twice as much as allowed in the same tax year...My ISA is with H Lansdown and won’t let you put in additional cash in the same tax year
  9. Agreed Anavi it is poor, I believe many brokers are the same at the moment to varying degrees...As the new tax year starts on 6th April UK , I would say you have until midnight on the 5th April to put your money in for this tax year and once it shows in your acct you could use immediately . Then from 6th April onwards you can put in next tax years allowance and use immediately
  10. Hi Kkr , as you suggested yourself, much quicker to sell in Halifax and put money straight into IG ISA...no idea why its suggested to go the long way round and have extra time /hassle and admin?.....
  11. i’m assuming that £408 is just your “running loss” ie if you closed the trade now you would lose £408 ....aren’t cfds 10 contracts ? (so to me it looks like you paid 56.5 x 10 =£ 565) and if you close / sell your call now you get £157 back (565-408) if you click the drop down arrow at the top of screen next to the £5,379 it will have some more info...hope that helps...
  12. unfortunately options on individual shares are dealt by phone only ...only indices, fx, commodities online....if you only want share options, there are numerous brokers eg tastytrade, firstrade, saxo, interactive brokers etc
