Spreadbetting Options

Dear all,
I am new to the forum and being spreadbetting for over 2 years.

Recently I have been trading Options via an US account, but I would like to benefit of the SB UK policy.

I currently trade Index and Oil options using IG, but:

1- Cannot see anything more than the price. Do you know of any SB firm who offers a better platform to SB options, where also greeks are available?

2- Do you know any SB firm who offers also options SB on US shares (and not just Index/futures)? IG does it but only over the phone, which makes online trading almost impossible.

3- Do any of you guys SB on options at all?

Thanks
Stefano

What would be the point of spread-betting on options on a share rather than spread-betting on the share itself?

its basically just trading options, just like spreadbetting is just trading (although different in ways which are discussed elsewhere!)

Exactly. So if you want to trade via traded options, what's the advantage in spread-betting against the price of traded options? Why not just trade in traded options?

i don't think there is an advantage its just convenient to use your SB account if that's where you generally trade. Have you seen the IG or city index SB platforms?

I have just started using an IG demo account but not at all familiar with it yet.
