  1. bump. I'd be curious to know this too. I always thought you were able to trade options on the euro STOXX 50 futures. I believe there is a rep from IB here that can help

  5. Def, just to clarify, so US residents can trades the stoxx 50 options? Just want to make sure b/c that was IB u.k site.

    also def, I have another question regarding equity options. If IB commissions are .70 an option, how are the following commission rates so low for this user that pasted this. Am i missing something?

    don't know about US residents and it is too late for me (i'm in HK) to look up CFTC/SEC no action letters. Perhaps someone else can chime in. If you don't get an answer within a day, shoot me a PM and I'll look it up.

    commissions are low I assume (as I don't have any further details than what you posted) because of the following:
    1. premium < .05

    Premium < USD 0.05 USD 0.25 per contract USD 1.00

    2. sliding scale and/or exchange rebates given back to clients:
