Trading Contract Options

With contract options, you can hedge your portfolio, and generate profit on price movements or volatility.

Market directionality ceases to be a concern as you can trade different market views, whichever way prices are moving. Saxo Bank offers you the ability to trade options on futures and indices and hedge an equity or futures portfolio.

While you can trade options on futures with interest rates, equity indexes, foreign exchange, energy, metals and agriculture, we do not compromise on the importance of offer liquid contracts.
