Fidelity Capital Markets (FCM) is one of the leading options brokers in the marketplace. We represent 5.4% of the total options contracts reported to the Options Clearing Corporation and an average of 22.6 million contracts traded monthly.1
We understand clients have a variety of needs for their accounts or portfolios.
Our options trading desk provides access to a wide range of exchange-traded stock and index options, including FLexible EXchange® Options (FLEX Options). FLEX options are customized equity or index option contracts. Depending on your strategy, options may be used for various purposes, including speculation and hedging, and may be traded separately (single-leg) or combined (multi-leg).
FCM's option orders are handled and executed electronically; however, we also maintain a block desk for option orders requiring special handling depending on what is required to meet your needs.
Execution quality for options is measured by FCM's Execution Quality Reporting (EQ) tool. We monitor option executions and will seek an explanation or price adjustment on your behalf when appropriate.
