The benefits & risks of Options

Options can protect your investment portfolio and reduce volatile market impact. Options can also be used to create an income stream and unique anticipated payoffs with limited cash outlay. 

Most option strategies have limited risk profile. In some instances, however, an investor could lose more than the initial investment with non-risk-defined strategies.   

No hidden costs

No need to worry about any hidden fees: trade Contract Options with no minimum ticket fees or carrying costs.

Exchange fees still apply. *

Use Stocks and Bonds as collateral
