Instant funding allows clients to access ACH deposits instantly to trade without waiting several days. Instant funding is available for options trading as well as stock. However, if your account is new, or your account equity is below our risk threshold, then instant funding will not be available to purchase options.
Options involve risks, including substantial risk of loss and the possibility an investor may lose the entire amount invested in a short period of time. Before an investor begins trading options they should familiarize themselves with the Options Disclosure Document. Tax considerations with options transactions are unique, investors should consult with their tax advisor to understand the impact to their taxes.
