Depending on your account value and experience, you can either: 

Buy options

By default, you can only buy options with Saxo. Because selling options involves a much greater potential risk, we only enable buying options as standard to help you control the amount of risk you take.

Buy and sell options

If you want to sell options you must have an account value of over USD 5,000 and give a written acknowledgement of the risks involved. Selling options also comes with margin benefits.

Options involve risks and are not suitable for all investors as the special risks inherent to options trading may expose investors to potentially rapid and substantial losses. Options trading privileges are subject to Saxo Bank A/S review and approval. Prior to buying or selling an option, investors must read a copy of the Characteristics & Risks of Standardized Options, also known as the options disclosure document (ODD). It explains the characteristics and risks of exchange- traded options.

Other Risks: Spreads, Straddles, and other multiple-leg option strategies can entail substantial transaction costs, including multiple commissions, which may impact any potential return.  These are advanced option strategies and often involve greater risk, and more complex risk, than basic options trades.

Exercise and assignment of options, particularly American-style, may lead to substantial losses especially if a writer of the option is "uncovered." Options that expire in-the- money are subject to automatic exercise, while options that are out-of-the-money are expired. In some cases, holders of long OTM options may decide to exercise if very close to the daily settlement underlying price, e.g. "Pin Risk."
