Options can form an important part of a wider investment strategy. They give you the right – but not the obligation – to buy or sell an underlying asset before a certain expiry date, allowing you to speculate on the future price of a financial market.
We offer an extensive range of options, with the service and support you’d expect from the world’s No.1 financial spread betting and CFD provider.2

I want to trade on volatility
As with digital 100s, options can be used to trade on volatility itself, allowing traders to benefit even when there’s little movement in the underlying market.
I want to hedge my trading strategy
Investors with long positions on stocks, commodities and more can hedge against a drop in the underlying price by taking out a put option.
I want my money to work harder
We offer high leverage rates for a wide range of options markets. See our full product details.
