Can I trade KOSPI options, as if it were futures?

  1. 1-tick spread is amazing.

    That's no many points to trade futures. Its required margin is very large. If I daytrade options, the opportunity cost is lower and the reward is higher relatively.

    Is it still 1-tick even for ATM and OTM options?

    Last I checked, those of us in the US could not trade the KOSPI. I take it you guys are abroad?

  3. If u are daytrading, just buy 5-10 1 dollar to 1.5 dollar one, it will have a similar outcome of buying 1 deep in the money options. U can get out eaiser than a deep ITM options.

    correct me if i'm wrong but i just don't see any advantage in trading non u.s. markets if you're residing in u.s.

  5. I have watched the options market for a few days. It is great. The liquidity is very good, not just the ATM ones.

    What's the point of daytrading futures, if options can be as good as futures? What you need to do is to pick a right option (eg not choosing too deep ITM or OTM options) and go for it.

    KOSPI options seem to be much better than its futures.

    Or am I missing anything?
