    Spreads a 'first trading tool' with limited risk

    Director, Europe / The Options Industry Council (OIC)
    United Kingdom
    First-time investors tend to focus only on four basic strategies. But options offer so much more than that. You can trade in, at or out-of-the-money. You can trade options for different expirations. You can combine long and short positions. All these variables enable investors to build strategies that suit their needs.

    Do your homework before embarking on an options journey

    Do your homework before embarking on an options journey
    Puts, calls, strike price, in the money and out of the money ... there's plenty of jargon in the trading of options. Just as sailors make sure that everything is shipshape before they set out, smart traders do their homework first before venturing into options trading.

    Clearing up the differences in equity option markets

    Director, Europe / The Options Industry Council (OIC)
    United Kingdom
    Clearing up the differences in equity option markets
    Within the US, a single clearing house, OCC, clears all trades for the listed equity option market. But in Europe many exchanges own their own clearing house. This means fungibility is not possible and there is no margin offset between related positions held at different exchanges. Changes are under way in Europe and will be addressed in MiFID 2.
