Consider Tastyworks as well. Their commission schedule is better than most. I tested options execution (5+ contract spreads) on some of the heavly traded stocks and every time their execution happened sooner or TOS never did execute. I do not use IB or Decarley. I believe Tastyworks is getting ready to offer futures options and portfolio margin based on the email reply from them recently.

Thanks for the reply Skidboot. I did sign up with Tastyworks. They don't allow foreigners to trade futures (yet). They offer limited futures products too.

Short option quantity limits


Does DeCarley impose a short option quantity limit based on account size?

I am selling options via DeCarley for years, but I never heard about this.

Has anyone had experience with shorting options via R.J. O'Brien, either directly or through an introducing broker?

That happened to me, but probably was because I shorted options with an expiration greater than 1 year away.

If you don't mind my asking, how much of a quantity limit did they impose on you relative to your account size?

8 short options max for an account size of $7500. Those 8 options required less than 3K margin according to my statement.

I shorted options via R.J. O'Brien, but this was years ago. I never had any problems.

I moved these activities to DeCarley because of the better service and the very friendly attitude towards option selling.
