What are multi-leg option strategies?

Option traders with a more advanced approach to the markets can use multi-leg strategies to simultaneously buy or sell a series of orders with only one commission. You can use them to take advantage of increased leverage, speculate on future price movements, to earn income, to hedge a position (or your entire portfolio), or to lower the cost of purchasing a security.

What strategies do you offer?

In the IQ trading platforms, we provide 17 pre-defined strategies as well as custom orders. Each represents a different approach to the markets:

You can also learn more about custom orders in IQ Edge.

How do I trade using multi-leg option strategies at Questrade?

The first step to options trading is to ensure you have permission in your account. We provide four levels of option permissions, from level 1 (for the most basic option trading) through to level 4 (sophisticated, multi-leg strategies). You can verify your level (or change it) by logging in to Questrade. If you are opening a new account, select your option level after you indicate the type of account you’re opening.

When you have option trading permission, you’ll be able to create multi-leg orders right in IQ Edge in the order entry window.
