The following 2 users say Thank You to Big Mike for this post: The following user says Thank You to Jura for this post: Okay to begin with the following is the scenario. I will take my existing future's strategy which i run automated and send myself text messages to enter and exit trades with options as options not easily automatible with ninjatrader. What i want to do is the following as my strategy is outright trend following say i want to go long a position i will trade using option spreads.
For instance if my hard stop is 1K on futures then ill make a spread that costs 1K with options. Im not sure if this is the case for option spreads though as the risk is defined anyone know? The only thing i want to risk is the spread of the option price no more and no less as this should equate to the initial stop loss in my strategy futures.
With my IB account i do have a lot of capital sitting idle but i used the slimmed down tws api and i expect i will need to open a subaccount with IB to trade options effectivly. For accounting purposes id like my options trading seperated. I guess IB is the best anyone doing spread options on IB and what is the margin requirements just the spread cost?? This should give you all the info you need on their spread margin requirements. I'm also interested in finding a good european based broker but haven't found anyone competitive yet - several with decent rates and multiple products are just using IB's platform adding an extra fee.
The following user says Thank You to marcl for this post: Not sure if they accept small accounts however. I still have no permission to post links so assemble the link by deleting the spaces. I would say ThinkOrSwim but they stopped the European accounts a few months ago to my knowledge.
