Dollar Index Options

Discussion in 'Options' started by maninjapan, Jun 29, 2009.

  1. Does the Dollar Index have tradeable liquidity in options?
    Ive tried looking up DX on my TWS platform but not abel to find anything. Am I missing something here?

  2. There are the NYBOT/ICE futures and options: USDX. If you only have access to stocks and stock options, the PowerShares UUP (bull) and UDN (bear) funds come to mind, although check the liquidity first, might be rather thin. You can also trade the CurrencyShares stuff: FXB (british pound sterling), FXC (canadian dollar), FXE (euro), etc. I think these too probably have less than stellar liquidity. Probably a bunch of others too. Can't keep up with the ETF craze.

    Hope that helps.
  3. Thanks Weewilly. Id liek to stay where the liquidity is so Ill check out the nybot data.
