I understand the symbol for future contracts, but do you offer options on the E Mini S&P 500? Because this is on what my trading system is all about.


We don’t currently support options on futures. We only support options on stocks and ETFs. Nowadays there are usually ETFs which can mirror most futures, so you will probably be able to replicate many strategies using options on ETFs or stocks.
