Hi all, I want to have an open thread on this. Similar to what Robinhood offers, I think it would be good to have options trading (calls, puts, etc) available in Freetrade at some point.
For example, at some cases it might be worth to buy a call option instead of buying the stock itself. If you buy a call option, you have very low risk because you only pay a small premium (which is smaller than what it would have cost to buy the same size of stock), but you have unlimited upside profit potential (depending on expiry date).
Note: I am not talking about spread betting, I’m talking about actual options trading via broker.
