Trading FX Options

Trading FX options enables clients to speculate on the market with a limited, known risk (i.e. the premium for a long option) or to manage existing positions and margin requirements.
Alternatively, clients might prefer to sell options to create income, whether outright or as part of a position building strategy - although this strategy carries a high level of risk.

Cross-Portfolio Margin Reductions

Spot FX positions are used in order to balance margin based on realistic ultimate exposure, while the value of other assets in your portfolio can also be used as collateral to reduce trading margins.

FX Options Report

A reporting tool which helps you manage your FX Options portfolio. The analytics report enables you to aggregate your Options and Spot positions to analyse the risk of your portfolio, so you can plan strategies accordingly.

We show all options for a currency pair in one place. Prices are displayed on a board split between downside and upside, whilst mid-volatilities and option deltas are also shown. Use the board to compare and analyse, whilst also trading directly from it.
