Lynx broker is Amsterdam based low-cost European stock and options broker, offering one of the cheapest options trades for European stock exchanges.
Options trades for Amsterdam stock exchange-listed stocks are as low as 0.8 EUR. For US options the cost is a bit higher - $2.4.
Buying/selling stocks is possible too - the commissions are $5 for US-listed stocks and EUR 6 for European stocks
I have been using Lynx Broker both for stock buying and holding and options trading since May 2018. See my initial review here: Low-Cost European Stock Broker - LynxBroker.com Review
With Lynx Broker I've been buying stocks, selling options on dividend stocks, indexes (SP&500), selling options on futures (FOP's) like Gold, also e-minis (ES), and many many other financial instruments (In short they do have all).
When trading with Lynx Broker, here is the general commissions to consider:
- US options: $2.4 per leg
- EUR options: EUR 0.8 per leg
- FOP's: $3.5 per leg
- E-minis: $3.5 per leg
Lynx Broker is affiliated with Interactive Brokers and is using its TWS trading platform which is very powerful and features rich. If you are familiar with puts/calls it will be a no brainer to set up your trades in the platform. (Options trading should be separately enabled)
If I would go to open a new brokerage account now, I would go directly with Interactive Brokers, but if you are interested in trading European stock exchange-listed options - Lynx Broeker might be the right choice.
Overall - very good broker, commissions could be lower for US options, but taking into account that commissions for European options are as low as 0.8 EUR this is a good broker.
