Why trade Contract Options with Saxo?

Beyond options, you can trade stocks, currencies, bonds and more from a single platform and one account, using options to hedge your investments or gain exposure in a larger context.

Global Access

With Saxo, you gain access to some of the most liquid options globally. With Saxo’s broad market access, you needn’t miss out on any opportunity.

Maximising potential & hedging positions

Calls, puts and straddles are all strategies which allow you to benefit from different market situations. You can use options to gain greater exposure, to protect your positions from certain risks or simply take advantage of a phase of market uncertainty and increased volatility.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The special risks inherent to options trading may expose investors to potentially rapid and substantial losses, which means they are not suitable for all investors. Options trading privileges are subject to Saxo Capital Markets UK Ltd review and approval. Prior to buying or selling an option we advise that investors read a copy of the Options Clearing Corporation’s Characteristics & Risks of Standardized Options, also known as the options disclosure document (ODD), which explains the characteristics and risks of exchange- traded options.  

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, more complex risk than basic options trades.
