Futures options

Futures options allow you to place an option trade on any available futures markets, including metals, micros, agriculture, and more. Trading futures options can also include market-neutral, multi-leg, and directional trades, depending on how you think the market will move and your risk/reward goals.

One advantage of futures options is the potential ability to reduce risk in your portfolio in different ways. Whether your strategy is looking to trade in an uncorrelated market in an attempt to diversify, hedge existing positions to limit risk, or directly trade asset classes with smaller initial capital, futures options may be able to help.

Keep in mind that you can lose money trading futures options and the risk of loss can be substantial. Futures options are not suitable for all investors.
