FAQs

A listed option is an option listed on an exchange, and cleared by the clearing organisation associated with that exchange. They give the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a specific amount of the underlying asset at a fixed price by a particular date. Listed options are available on assets including single stocks, indices, ETFs, bonds, and commodities.

At Saxo, we offer access to more than 1,200 option roots, covering various underlying assets and a wide range of strikes. You can find some examples here.

Our expert strategists regularly post news, analysis and commentary to help you stay one step ahead of developments in the market and provide actionable trade ideas.

You can access their posts on the 'insights' section of our website, or directly through our trading platform.

Listed Options Risk Warning

An option is categorised as a red product as it is considered an investment product with a high complexity and a high risk.


Danish banks are required to categorise investment products offered to retail clients depending on the product’s complexity and risk as: green, yellow or red. For further information click here

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."
