Sharebuilder is now offering Options Trading. Last month, they introduced this new feature whereby customers can now buy and sell stock options in their ShareBuilder accounts. The options trading tools have been designed like the rest of the ShareBuilder service - straightforward and easy to use.
Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Before investing in options, please read the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options. Since option trades carry greater risk, so Sharebuilder's brokerage professionals must approve your account and activate this feature before you place trades.
