To add Option Trading to one or more of your accounts, under Accounts click on Open New Account and select the accounts you want to add options to. Next, select the option level(s) for each selected account. Registered Accounts and TFSA accounts can only have Option Level 1 or 2 (long Calls, Puts, and Covered Calls). If you have a Cash Account, you will need to instead open a “Margin Account.” Margin Accounts can have up to Option level 4.
Contact us when you’ve completed the application and we will advise our new accounts team to simply add the option features to your existing accounts, and not to open new accounts.
