Trading Options on Futures

Discussion in 'Financial Futures' started by torontoman, May 23, 2005.

  1. Should I trade options on futures online, or with a full service broker? I plan to write out-of-the-money calls. Are all options on futures available to trade online?

    Any advice or comments?

    Thanks in Advance

    Most are still traded on the floor. Commissions are higher e.g SPX on the CBOE is $1 a side with IB but $1.65 for ES. The contract size is double for SPX. There are margin benefits to trading the ES though.
