Options

With Trade.com in your team, you can power up your trading by connecting directly to the Options Market – trade equity options, indices and currencies via our cutting-edge trading platform.

Why Options?

Options is a form of derivative trading, which gives you the chance to speculate on the future price of a variety of assets, but with one major benefit over Futures trading - you can close your position at any time.

You can place a PUT option where you believe the price of the asset will fall to below the strike price by a pre-set time. Or you can place a CALL option when you think the price of the asset will rise by a certain expiry.

With Options trading at Trade.com you will have the chance to purchase the underlying asset or simply to place a trade based on the price movement, without actually owning the asset.

Options are:

  • Often considered less risky than equities and
  • Are less costly than buying stocks
  • With the opportunity to bring high returns
  • And a wide selection of strategies

Why Trade.com?

The fee schedule here at Trade.com is highly competitive and you will know exactly how much you will stand to pay before you place a trade, allowing you to factor any costs into your Options strategies.
