We are excited to announce that we have integrated our vanilla options platform with the easyMarkets platform to make trading even simpler.
The aim of this integration which went live this week, is to enhance user experience on our platform. For the time being you can still view the ORE vanilla options platform in a separate window as you used to, but you can also simply choose the ‘vanilla options’ deal tab and start trading within your easyMarkets platform.
“Our aim is to make trading as simple as possible for our clients and this is what we have once again achieved; offering an easier way to trade vanilla options” Director of Risk Management, Evdokia Pitsillidou said about the platform.
How do vanilla options work on the easyMarkets platform?
Vanilla options are a type of trading deal, like a day trade or a pending order which easyMarkets traders can choose to use on more than 40 assets.
This trading deal can only be found at a select number of brokers.
By choosing to ‘see more’ on the platform, you view your trade’s market rates and all the Greeks which makes trading that much more transparent. Only the easyMarkets platform offers such details on a vanilla options trade.
The longest expiry period available is six months.
Now you can also trade 1-hour options
Our most recent addition to vanilla options trading is 1-hour options which is the shortest timeframe for a deal.
For the time being you can only buy a 1-hour option at a predefined strike price with the expiry time of 1 hour. Of course, you can set your own amount to trade.
A lot more exciting changes are planned for the near future on the easyMarkets platform.
