I traded US options for many years and after an absence want to start up again - I am finding that OptionsXpress won't let me re-fund my account- they are sending me to Charles Schwab UK.
I am looking at what the alternatives are for opening an options trading account in UK. I called Berkely Futures but they don't provide a trading platform. Any advice greatly appreciated.

I tend to play the VIX options based on my view of what volatility might do.

I'm currently long August calls....volatility seems to be too cheap.
