Forex Online Option Trading

Forex online option trading is done via forex brokerages that also have options trading function.

Most of the forex online brokers don't offer options trading, simply because most of the retail forex traders don't normally trade in options for forex.

In addition, if these brokerages do trade in forex options, there are normally trading minimums, meaning minimum positions in options as well as minimum account sizes.

The forex options are basically of two types, either plain vanilla options or exotic options.

Of these plain vanilla or general options are the basic put or call options, sold OTC (over the counter).

The other type, exotic options, are normally tailor made to the customer, with specific strike prices and features. These options are normally not sold OTC.
