Cannot trade US index options anymore (EU customer at IB UK)

    Today I wanted to buy an index option at CBOE and TWS platform informed me that I don't have permission (a few months ago I didn't have any problems with that).
    I logged-in to account management and under Permissions > Index options section I didn't see "United States" listed anymore.

    Did anyone else noticed that? Has this anything to do with IB UK -> IB LUXEMBOURG account transfer for EU customers?

    That is new. There was a problem buying US etfs like spy that you got around by selling puts and hoping for exercise from Europe.

    You could always try ES options on futures for SP500 exposure. Be specific about the symbols.
