    Default Options information?

    I would like to invest in options.
    However often I do not find the option quote from ASX or Commsec site.
    For example CTS or CTX option. No information this.
    Does it mean they do not exist?
    Also some times Options are shown in ASX site as exchange traded but can not be bought from Commsec. What that means?

    How to go about investing in Options.

    Any advise?

    Miner, have you tried adding the letter "O" to the end of your code. Eg. CTS is the stock, but if a company option exists on that stock, it is most likely CTSO. Not all stocks have a company option.

    I don't trade with Commsec, so you would need to ask them if there are any restrictions to your trading options.

    Usually with exchange traded options, most brokers require special approval (more forms to be filled out!) before they will let you trade them. Again, you will need to find out from your broker.

    Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
