Foreign options for us residents

  1. I'm just starting to look at European options and futures and see that legal US residents are not allowed to trade options on foreign cash indexes. Does that mean I can't trade options on DAX or ESTX50 for instance? Futures options are allowed but not cash index options. Are there any good substitutes for the index options? What do other Americans do who want to trade European options?
