Exchange Traded Options (ETOs) are a versatile and flexible tool that allow you to employ a range of approaches. Options can be used to complement or refine your existing share strategies, or take advantage of opportunities in ways that owning shares can't.

Options can be used to limit risk or to take on risk to profit depending on your approach. Options can be as simple or as complex as you want.
