We’re required to evaluate whether various levels of options strategies are appropriate for members, based on information such as trading experience, investment objectives, and financial situation. Different brokerages are able to set specific parameters (e.g., account equity) based on their discretion. If you’re approved to trade options at SoFi, you can execute long calls and long puts.
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.
