Why can't I trade VIX and VSTOXX Futures and Options?
Please be aware that Retail clients can no longer trade the following Futures or Options on Futures.
• CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) • VSTOXX(R) Mini (VSTOXX)
If you do, you will receive the error message Trade would exceed client exposure limitation.
If you hold positions in one of these contracts, you will be able to reduce or close the position, but you will not be able to increase exposure.
If you wish to trade the above instruments, you need to request a reclassification to Professional client. This can be done via SaxoTraderGO platform: Navigate to Account > Other > Classification status.
