How can I enable writing (shorting) of listed options - stock and contract options?
Writing/shorting of listed options requires activation of an advanced options trading profile. This is only applicable for stock options and options on futures & indices.
In order to enable it, you will have to acknowledge that you are aware of the risk involved in shorting options and have relevant experience by reading and accepting the conditions.
