OptionsHouse Updates Low Cost Options Pricing Structure and Trading Tools

OptionsHouse recently changed its pricing structure for options trading and added some new trading tools.

OptionsHouse Low Cost Options Trades

OptionsHouse recently announced some significant changes to its trading platform. The discount broker has updated both its pricing structure and its trading tools. OptionsHouse still offers flat rate stock trades for just $2.95. But it’s updated its cost of options trades as follows:

The first option caters to customers who trade less than 10 option contracts per leg and is referred to as the “5 for $5” plan. Under this plan, single-leg trades are $5 for up to 5 contracts plus $1 for each additional contract.

The second option caters to customers who generally trade more than 10 contracts per leg. Under this plan, single-leg trades are $8.50 plus 15 cents for each additional contract.

The research tab provides so much information, that I’ve started using it daily to track the markets and various issuers. You can check out these features directly on OptionsHouse’s Website.
