No Quarter

Hi all
I want to pursue my interpretation of Nasim Talebs options trading strategy, namely being a buyer of straddles and waiting for the black swan. I.e. buying a lottery ticket, but hopefully one with an expectancy of over 1, only time will tell...

I do my normal index trading on ETX, nice platform, secure in the EU. What would be similar that would allow me to buy (not sell) straddles on perhaps Dow, Dax, GBPUSD, USDJPY? Any other advice for a seasonedindex trader but an options newbie?
