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.
