I have no idea about the special situation in Australia. But I can comment on the situation of a European (Austrian) trader. Situation here is similar to the situation in Australia in so far, as we both are not in the US and have additional requirements regarding money tranfer etc.

I work with DeCarley, and I am very happy with her service. Best I ever received in many years of trading. If there is a way to assist you Carley will certainly find it. I hold my funds at a European bank, which makes money transfer much cheaper and faster. Perhaps they allow for holding your money at an Australian bank.

I have a second account with IB. They are cheaper, but they have higher margins for naked short options, they liquidate your positions intraday if your margin is not sufficient, and there service is average (to be polite). Main purpose of this account is my longterm stock portfolio and hedges for this portfolio.

Best regards, Myrrdin

I am also doing a lot of option selling, and I use the free Zaner360 platform.

The platform is not perfect. Eg. it is not possible to trade all kinds of option spreads, although many types can be traded. But in case something does not work perfectly Carley helps. In this case she places the order for a complicated option trade for my account although I have a self-directed account.

Another good thing about DeCarley: They like optoin sellers and support it, whereas some other brokers obviously dislike it.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Hi Myrrdin,

Thank you for your input

Which particular option spread strategies are you referring to? I only sell naked, strangle and ratio (e.g 3 short 1 long) and most of the time I do it one by one i.e. legging.

Do you see any issue?

Regards

No, legging into option spreads is always possible.

I prefer entering these spreads using only one order. This is possible for many types of spreads, but for some of them it will be introduced in a couple of months (eg. Christmas Tree, long put and two different short puts with lower strike prices; all options have the same expiry date.)

You will find the possible options in the software when entering the order.

Best regards, Myrrdin
