Can options on futures work for day trading news events?

Hello all,
I have a successful strategy for day trading FX futures around news events. I enter after the news and try for a mean reversion trade back to the area of blast off.

Can I use options on futures to leverage the strategy more?

Just a options of futures newbie here. Any advice on where to start would also be appreciated!

Thanks

Sure. If you have an edge and you recognize the risk present, why not!

You should check liquidity for the options, and include slippage and fees in your calculations. Please consider that stop orders for options usually do not work.

Best regards, Myrrdin
