I used to have an account with options express too i still have it but don't use it What seems to be the problem? How do I have to answer the questions on the "options approval" form to get approved. I have experience trading options.
Any ideas on how I'm doing this wrong? All I need is Options Level 2 approval. Davecash77 , Aug 28, The link you supplied is the margin application. Only way I can see that being denied would be credit report or insufficient funds for margin. Additionally, without seeing answers to questions there is no way to know if it's denied based on how you are answering the questions, but the obvious answer is something in your application shows insufficient qualification to trade options per there requirements.
Bolimomo , Aug 28, ETrade might also look at the actual funding of the account. I am not sure. I think some places require you have atleast 25k to do much with options.
