UK Guide to US Options Trading

This is guide to US options trading from the UK, because I've seen countless requests of people browsing in /ukinvesting, /options, /wallstreetbets etc. about this.
First thing's first - no part of this post is to be taken as financial advice. It is a guide on how to start options trading from the UK. Options/CFD trading is a high-risk activity and most retail traders lose money.

1. CFDs vs. Options

So getting started, options and contracts for difference (CFDs) are both financial derivatives - they derive their values from an underlying security e.g. stock, indices, currency, commodities. Long story short, CFDs do not have an expiration and options do; and at the option expiration date, options give the opportunity to buy/sell the underlying (e.g. stock) at the agreed strike price. CFDs are highly directional (delta) trades where positions require ongoing financing fees by a broker, whereas options strategies allow the trader to trade time decay (theta) as well as market volatility (vega). Options provide greater flexibility in trading strategies (time/volatility trading as well as direction); however, due to this, the more complex strategies can be difficult to understand.
Spread betting allows a literal directional bet of an underlying by a certain date. It is most similar naked options - i.e. if your position moves against you enough, your broker may forcibly close your position unfavourably and/or margin call you for extra cash ("you can lose more than your initial deposit"). With options/CFDs, you can define risk by specifying a profitability range (spreads) instead to avoid this scenario. Due to spread betting being so close to gambling, it is treated as such in the UK in terms of taxation - gains are tax free. I will also add here that CFDs/options can also be used in this manner (gambling, with subsequent margin calls etc.), and that CFD brokers tend to understate the risks of these strategies, whilst almost all options brokers require elevated permissions to seek out this level of risk - this is because blowing through margin presents a risk to the broker and they would rather have commissions without the risks of the brokerage going bust. The lowest level of permissions still allows you to buy extremely highly leveraged OTM options without margin, as your max loss is limited to the amount you paid for those options.

2. Brokers

Given that options effectively open up two additional aspects of trading (time/volatility) and require additional regulatory oversight compared to CFDs/spreadbetting, there is basically no options market in the UK - the only brokers at this time are IG/Saxo, and they only do vanilla options on Forex/Indices/Commodities. Everyone else only does CFDs and/or stock (T212, Freetrade, IG, Plus500 etc.). To engage in true stock options trading, the only choice is to open an international/US brokerage account.
The two that are accessible to UK investors are Interactive Brokers (IB) and TastyWorks. Both are reputable brokers and have strong insurances for cash & securities held with them.

3. Opening an account

I will walk through some of the aspects of funding and operating a TastyWorks account from the UK, as this is my recommendation if you're here looking for a cheap way to get started.
Opening a free account on TastyWorks is easy as they are used to foreign traders (form filling within 20-60 mins - you will need a photo of proof of ID and address). It typically takes 1 day for cash accounts and 2-3 days for margin accounts to be ready for funding. My referral link if you feel this guide deserves the effort is: https://start.tastyworks.com/#/login?referralCode=GD9EGGNZYZ. (mods, happy to remove this is this guide is deemed low effort)
The account types are:

4. Funding the Account

Since trading US options is done in USD, the account must be funded in USD. As international traders, deposits must be "By Wire", assuming you do not have a US bank account - full instructions for the "By Wire" method will show up when you are approved to fund your account. With TastyWorks, UK traders have 3 options at time of writing, going from highest to lowest fee:
1) Starling Bank: ~1% commission (+flat fee TBC?)
2) CurrencyFair: typical ~0.75% commission +$20 flat fee
3) TransferWise/Revolut + UK USD Account: ~0.5% commission +$20 flat fee
TastyWorks does not accept third party transfers (accounts not in your name), so services such as Revolut and TransferWise (inc. borderless) do not work directly
4.1 Starling Bank
With Starling Bank, you can do an international wire from a GBP account directly. Easy online bank setup and probably fastest way to get started, especially if you already bank with them. Note: Starling Bank is rejecting transfers to TastyWorks 'as it sits out of our international payment provider's risk appetite' (as of 11th May) - waiting for updates
Note that other routes include a $20 flat fee charged by intermediate banks before the transfer reaches TastyWorks. Haven't got confirmation that this route is charged or if Starling includes it within their higher fee.
4.2 CurrencyFair
TastyWorks have approved transfers via CurrencyFair with a guide at: https://support.tastyworks.com/support/solutions/articles/43000435321-can-i-use-currencyfair-to-fund-my-account-
Easy to get started, but a couple hoops to jump through to confirm your transaction to TastyWorks via email.
Note that the $20 flat fee is for an intermediary bank to take their cut between CF and TastyWorks, but that is not mentioned on the CurrencyFair website.
4.3 USD account + TransferWise/Revolut
The cheapest option is to set up a USD currency account and transfer through that.
The account of choice is the Barclays USD Foreign Currency account - you need a current account with them to be able to open the USD account. HSBC also have an offering, but not had this route confirmed.
Once the USD account is open, you can transfer into it using Revolut/TransferWise (cheap) and then international (wire) transfer from Barclays account to TastyWorks (free!). Note that the Barclays USD account is still a UK bank account, so you'll need to use a SWIFT transfer from Revolut/TransferWise to turn your GBP into USD.
Note that the $20 flat fee is for an intermediary bank to take their cut between Barclays and TastyWorks, but that is not mentioned on the Barclays website.
4.4 Withdrawals
To withdraw funds, do the opposite for a deposit, noting that $45 will be charged by TastyWorks per withdrawal.

5. Getting Started

I highly, highly recommend TastyWork's education centre and their TastyTrade videos, especially if you are new to this.
Otherwise, once funded, it's as simple as downloading the app on mobile, using the browser trading screen, or downloading their full desktop platform.
That's it for the guide - happy trading, and if there are any questions, feel free to get in touch and I'll edit the answers in here. I want this to be a resource because I've helped many people get started, and it would be good to have it all in one place!

How to invest NOT on the margin?

Is there a way to invest without having a margin, or do all brokerages require this? If you can invest without needing a margin/maintenance margin how can I go about this?

Unexpected margin call

Hi everybody,
after some playing with virtual money yesterday i did open an account with real money using plus500. I added 160USD to my account and my plan was to bet (not invest or speculate) on USA500 going down.
So i sold 5 call options jully27 usa500 3060 at price 80USD with leverage 1:5. I thought that i will either hold the position until option expires or i will get margin call at price 104USD and my position will be auto closed. As i said, i was betting, so i was ok with that.
Instead my position was closed at 112USD. So i checked the graph and the price didn't go over 92USD, even on 1 minute graph. What happened? I have two possible explanations: 1) due to high volatility the price went from 92USD up to 112USD and then back down to 92 USD in just few seconds, so graph doesn't show that. 2) due to high volatility spread was much bigger so with price 92USD bid was 72USD and ask was 112USD. Is it possible? If so, is it normal or i have chosen wrong brokebad market?
Thanks ;)
Edit: I was "trading" with call options on USA500 with plus500 broker, so i wasnt trading real options on SP500. So by selling 5 calls at price 3060 i didnt sell right to buy 500 indexes at price 3060, but probably right to buy 5 indexes at price 3060. Anyway now i understand i wasnt using "real broker", which is probably good, because i didnt know what i am doing.
But i still dont understand, why my position was closek by buying call at price 112USD, when the price according to graph was supposed to be 92USD.

LSE:PLUS @ 1,329

Plus500 does one thing and it does it really well, CFD trading. It's super simple and easy to use website which is what attracts retail 'investors'. I put investors in quotes because CFD trading is not really investing, it's just complete gambling for 99% of amateurs who have no idea what they are doing.
Until 2018 the regulations around it were very lax too, basically retail gamblers could leverage a lot to buy CFD's. Then in 2018 some trading body (can't remember who) put regulations on their european segment which made it so that retail gamblers could not leverage too much and would get stop losses and such UNLESS they were classed as a professional trader. So then this hurt plus500's revenues and profits a lot short term in 2018 as retail gamblers could not lose as much all of a sudden.
However, long term this regulation is much better than the alternative which would have been to outright ban CFD trading which is why plus500 supports this regulation and has implemented it cross regions I think.
In 2020 the australian regulators are talking about regulating CFD trading as well. However the australian segment makes up only 1/7 of total revenues so this shouldn't affect future revenues too much short term.
So basically the big risk is regulation or outright banning which is why the market is making such a huge discount on this company.
But the upside is plus500 is a cash machine with insane cash flows, little expenses, an addicted loyal gambling base, huge operating margins, huge amounts of insider buying recently.
And the biggest upside of all is that plus500 dominates in periods of volatility because they make money off the spread of the bets.
> Q1 2020 revenues up 487% to $316.6m compared to the same period last year, equivalent to 89% of FY 2019 revenues, resulting in EBITDA* of c. $231.6m for the quarter.
They are going to have a record year due to COVID-19 and the market has hardly noticed, just a 20% gain since that insane upate here: https://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/news/market-news/market-news-detail/PLUS/14493925.html
I bought this stock at £8 and I'm also buying tomorrow at £13.29 a ton.
The relative multiples are extremely low and even a DCF valuation of pessimistic scenario's gives a huge 100%+ discount.

Can someone explain CFD trading?

I’ve started trading a few months ago on Plus500 as a beginner trader and would like some clarification on a few things.
I understand that on CFD trading you never truly own a stock, you are trading on margin which helps you obtain more shares to magnify your gains/losses. However what I don’t understand is where does this extra money come from? For example let’s say a stock is valued at £100 and I want to buy but I only have £40 in my account. The CFD platform allows me to buy the share with simply £32 as a required margin. Why would the platform allow me to buy something at a lower price? How does the platform benefit from this? Why would someone choose CFD trading as opposed to traditional investing?

Android App Issue - Money Lost

Hi,
So last Thursday I was day trading as usual. The Plus500 app, which I have been using since 2014 without any issue was giving me a lot of problems; lagging, and kept logging me out constantly. Although this led to me missing out from opening positions, I did not complain, but then, I was constantly logged out, multiple times within a minute, and this prevented me from closing my open positions - thus I lost all the money I made in the day and even more.
I contacted Plus500 on the same night, and as any broker would do, they tried to cover their asses first - reliable internet connection? it's a safety measure etc. Then, they told me they were forwarding my issue to their technical department and I have not heard from them since. I also sent them a reminder yesterday, but did not get a reply. This has never happened before, and their support has always been good in the past.
Needless to say, if this is unresolved I will switch brokers.
Suggestions?

EDIT:
So after numerous emails I've been sending requesting a follow up on my situation, they sent me an email on the 23/03, and basically shrugged it off. They are implying that I am complaining because I had a margin call warning, where in reality, I am asking about why the app kept freezing and logging me out. I guess all they care about is simply taking money from their customers, and what better way is it than a margin call?

How I lost my entire balance at the start of this week.

Since I'm in lockdown, I thought I had nothing better to do than to share.
DISCLAIMER: Next level autism
I had just switched to the platform Plus500, as I live in NZ and robinhood is unavailable. On the Friday morning (US Friday close) I bought slack stock, with 1:7 leverage and set my alarm for Tuesday at 3:30am (US market open).
As you guys probably know slack did well on Monday, I didnt sell as soon as I woke, I waited a few hours (until 6ish), doing market research in the meantime. Selling Slack made me a few thousand (still got toilet papers hands though).
So, being 6am, having been awake since 3:30am, autism flowing through my veins, I decided to put my money in a safe bet, US500. I bought the stock and, about to close the app, I saw a loss of a thousand, thinking that wasn't right, I had a look at the account summary. I had accidentally traded with leverage 1:174, not 1:1 and had accidentally traded (leveraged) over a million in US500.
I put in loss limits, but my losses exceeded those limits in both attempts (rejected by server) then my account margin called.
Now I'm in lockdown with just about nothing to trade (uni student). Fuck this.

alibaba and plus 500

ok, i need advice. i recently took up trading on plus500 trading platform, and i am seriously regretting it, and feeling stupid for not learning all the risks involved before diving in. So, ive already lost a bit of money, i currently have alibaba open position on 660 shares. the opening rate was 226.94 USD on 16 jan 2020. So for those of you know how plus500 and CFDs work, the current rate is 216.37. I currently have a maintanance margin of $11000 AUD and equity of $30,500 AUD. i am currenty running a loss of $11,800 aud. I am trading from australia, so its impossible for me to stay up all night to watch ther NYSE, so im thinking of setting a stop if it drops a bit more down to $216.37 USD as a safety net if it drops down any further and cut my losses rather than waiting it out and having overnight funding fees chewing up more money and the potential of it crashing down further and having my position automatically closed and suffering a massive loss, or should i wait it out a bit more before setting it to close? im just worried about the coronavirus, and a possible chinese downturn. anyone? its driving me nuts.
i guess it might be an idea to watch hong kong before i decide, it does seem that the new york listing does tend to follow the trend (up or down at close) on hong kongs market on a daily basis. ive taken off the stop for now, will look at hong kong market tmw before deciding. If you put the past months performance from hong kong and new york side by side, they are almost identical, so im thinking this might be a good indicator?

I lost $1.5M in my demo account

Look I know this may be the dumbest post which has ever been posted on this subreddit but I am genuinely sad.
So for about 6 months now I've been having fun in a Plus500 stock trading demo account where they set you up with $200,000 and you're free to trade stocks/currencies/commodities etc.
So in the past 6 months I grew my starting sum of $200K to over $1.5M and to me it was kinda cool. I mean I KNOW its not real money but it felt real to me dammit!
I used to look at a monthly earnings call calendar, determine what company would beat its earnings and yolo all my money into the stock and when the price shot up afterwards I used to sell and make a quick profit.
Then I realized the amount of money that could be made with buying and selling oil barrel's and I used to make $17-40K on average daily.
Then yesterday I went ALL IN on Oil. Oil tanked WAYYYY below the price I bought in at, I KNEWW IT WAS GOING TO REBOUND! BECAUSE IT ALWAYS DID!
BUT THEN
The Demo account closed! The price of Oil fell too much and I believe I got a margin call, I didn't have enough cash to cover my leverage. So the demo acc shut down and then I was left with my starting amount again. ALL MY DEMO MONEY DOWN THE DRAIN!
You know what's the worst part? OIL REBOUNDED! I would have made $500,000 had my acc NOT closed down! Had my acc and the oil trades in it stayed open for just 1 more hour I WOULD HAVE MADE THAT MUCH!
Look I know you may be laughing at me but I just wanted to get this off my chest. Making even game money like this based on real market prices n stuff gives u a really strong wolf of wall street like feeling......and I'm really sad I messed up.

Given the sea of massive green and my oil yolo win. 294x leverage?

So my fellow faggots. Given I currently have 200k equity in my account thanks to this ongoing oil yolo, I am thinking about the next yolo. Tomorrow morning Im closely going to watch the ASX for the first few hours. Ill get about 3 hours of observation in to pick up market direction for my yolo to end all yolos and retire on hookers and ludes.
Thoughts on this idea.
I can get 294x leverage on Index and Im currently eying off the Hong Kong 45 (HSI). Hopefully oil breaks this 42 and markets will be getting confident as fuck. The HSI will soar, and Ill dump 250k on 294x leverage on the HSI at open. This will be about 74 million margined to the balls. If the ASX opens strong (given the current market its looking likely) Ill place an order for open.
Thoughts?

For most traders, the first – and sometimes only – concern is pursuing their 'edge'. While that is surely important, along with sound money management habits, to navigating the markets; that step alone does not represent the full preparation.
As each trader dives into this important venture, it is important not to forget the most rudimentary yet crucial steps such as selecting the best broker to access the markets.

Where to Trade Crypto on Leverage/Margins: Over 20 Best Places

Right now, if you are looking to trade cryptocurrencies on leverage, you can opt to trade raw crypto or in CFDs. We found some of the best dedicated cryptocurrency exchanges offering crypto leverage/margin trading as Kraken, Poloniex, Huobi Pro, OKEx, CEX.io, Bitfinex, Coinexx, offering between 2x to 500x (2 times to 500 times). However, the most normal leverage range is 5x to 20x on most dedicated cryptocurrency exchanges including Kraken, Poloniex, Huobi Pro, OKEx, Bitfinex, CEX.io, with Bithumb Global set to launch full features later this year with 100x leverage, Coinexx offering 500x leverage, and Binance yet to launch the feature but having confirmed they will.
However, if you are looking for some of the best features when leverage trading crypto, plus if you want more leverages or multipliers, then cryptocurrency CFD contracts may be a better option for now, at WhaleClub, AvaTrade, Plus500, RoboForex (50x) and Evolve.Markets (50x), where leverages range from 10x to 50x or at Deribit (100x), XENA (100x), BitMex (100x), PrimeXBT (100x) and ADS Prime (500x) where leverages are in another entirely different level. All of these work differently from dedicated cryptocurrency exchanges above.
Otherwise below is a more detailed review of some of the main exchanges and broker trading platforms where you can trade different types of crypto either as real crypto or as CFDs in leverage.

PLSQF, High Margin 12% div

So I was checking out a company called Plus500 (ticker is PLSQF) and was fairly surprised. They are a CFD trading platform which has an astounding 93% gross margin and a 52% net margin. They pay a dividend of roughly 12%, generate large amounts of free flow cash, and are continuing to grow. While I am not a CFD trader so I cannot necessarily determine the demand for their platform, it seems as though demand is strong for their platform. I'd love your guys' input on the company! Also, I was curious if anyone could explain why the movement in their price has been so little? Is it due to a lack of liquidity (considering it's almost a $1 billion dollar company, I find that surprising) or something else? Thanks!
