Re. earlier posts - GBP is indeed rising and may well do so into the Christmas break. Broker is investigating margin requirements for forex options. I do not want to move large deposits to a broker's account and the Swiss private banks charge too much commission now (where I had previous forex options). They have a few weeks to respond.

Thanks look forward to it. The formula is the gut feel I get it too,but have trouble after successful trades or great uncertainty differentiating between noise and signal.

Thanks Alphorn I'm agnostic other than a vague trend following feel and an Eoconomics Grad and Logistics Manager friend who recons it will carry on sliding until we have actualy left the EU. Can you say which options youve sold i.e. in the money out of the money expiry, strike....for interest or to follow you :) The ETF URGB Short Euro Long British pound

Really just a mix of everything that I read each day over (many) years! I saw €1.10 as a floor post the vote mainly due to the GBP IMO being too high in terms of domestic costs and a 'price' for the uncertainty. It was at €1.0989 on October 10. I thought that it would stay low for a while - wrong! So now I think that GBP will rise too much, to fall next year once Brexit negotiations start. It does not sound very scientific but it has brought in some large profits over the years. Sorry I can not paste some magic formula. ;)

Fascinating, why do you see €1.10 as the floor? URGB Short Euro Long British pound

Well I missed my chance by going on holiday. €1.10 was indeed the floor. Was up a lot. Next guess is tomorrow/Thursday when I think GBP could rise further. I shall sell a covered call against € funds.

Hi Tilt - yes, forex doing well. I went on holiday rather than open some more forex positions and missed the GBP blip a couple of weeks ago. There will be another chance. I hope all well with your fixed income stuff - probably a good time for that too.

Hello Straddle - long time. Walbrook is fine for me. I only use Phoenix for tracking my portfolio. Option trades are called in; always efficient and friendly people. Tonsil - are you straddle?

Investec WEalth closing their advisory options service. I am looking for a self guided platform and a group of like minded options aware investors. So reviews or experience of Phoenix would be useful.

Could one of you knowledgeable chaps, advise why I can't access option prices on the Walbrook Phoenix platform. Am I looking at the wrong trading platform? Thanks in advance.

First thoughts on forex. Perhaps 1.10 is a floor against GBP so write an option on that basis. Covered by € cash. GBP may rise after Hammond's statement, may rise if May comes out with anything remotely sensible on Brexit, may slide further (a run) and overshoot around parity if nothing happens. Impact of the US election is an unkown. Don't know! ;))

Can I ask who are your preferred brokers for trading options in the UK? I'd like to trade US equity options really. Not sure I trust IG. I did have an Interactive Brokers account years ago- may open that up again unless there are better? Thanks

Hmm long call options to the value of the portfolio. Buy put options to cover twice the value of the portfolio?

Hi Praipus. Thx. I shall give it more thought and write when back from holidays. In a nutshell I moved a lot out of sterling into non GDP assets in the spot market. Will think of using options to lock some gains.
