LONDON, October 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
GFT, a worldwide leader in online currency trading, spread betting and Contracts for Differences (CFDs), now offers European traders the opportunity to trade FX options using the DealBookÂ® trading platform. GFT's FX options offering allows traders to speculate on ten of our most popular currency pairs, seek profit in rising or falling markets, gauge the riskiness of a possible option while potentially protecting earnings, and hedge new or existing positions.
An option is a contract between a buyer and seller for the right to buy or sell an underlying financial product at a specific price on a particular date. With FX options, the underlying product is a currency pair.
GFT's FX options platform offers 24-hour access to streaming quotes with similar trading hours as spot FX. Traders can trade over-the-counter vanilla calls and puts on ten currency pairs. In the FX options module, the New Order window supports several common spread strategies, including verticals, straddles, strangles and risk reversals. FX options at GFT are settled in the European-style; in-the-money options are automatically exercised as a position.
FX options customers can expect the GFT standard of fast execution, competitive spreads, access to free trading educational tools and resources, and knowledgeable 24/7 customer service.
