What are options?

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 CFD provider*.
