    Are there any professional European (inc UK) options traders here on ET? Kindly provide some info on what software you use (your reason for choice, costs and any tips) for:

    Liffe, Eurex and CBOE options.

    Particularly interested to know how people find trading CBOE from here.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Do you mean that in context of exercise? American can be exercised by the buyer at any point up to the exercise date whereas the European ones can only be exercised on expiry.
