I have been getting a few inquiries about this topic, so I thought it would be easier to compile a very short list of the international brokers that allow trading of US options for European clients:

  • Interactive Brokers
  • Firstrade
  • Tastyworks
  • Saxo Bank
  • Swissquote

Most brokers require that you complete some sort of appropriateness test before they will allow you to buy/sell puts and calls. I recommend you do a lot of reading and spend some months with a demo account before walking headlong into this trendy endeavour.
