    Default How many trade US based options?

    Hello Traders,

    I am interested to see how many trade US based option contracts? If you do, let me know why you prefer trading the US options compared to other markets. If you don't I would also like to know why you don't trade the US. Such as time the US market is open etc.

    Looking forward to the feedback,

    Joshua Belanger

    I only trade Australian ETOs with IB. I've considered using US options for liquidity, but don't think ill trade them because:

    -market open times coincide with my normal sleeping patterns
    -no access to equity research and familiarity with US companies in Australia
    -USD exposure
    -confusing market microstructure with multiple trading venues quoting securities
    -overall I'm probably more likely to have an edge trading in the home market

    I am just interested in how many actually trade US options compared to their domestic market.

    They are yanks, fishing in new markets. $249 is on the high side as there are more competitive subscriptions from alternative companies such as leavittbrothers.com $99per/mth or stockbandit.com also $99 per/mth and both offer a service for option power setups.
