How To Trade Options On Webull | Mobile App, Desktop or Desktop App ?

For years, Webull traders have been asking for Options trading to be included on the trading platform.

It took Webull until 2020 to make this possible.

The main reason I can think of is to stay competitive in the battle of the Millennials it is engaged with Robinhood.

Currently, Webull only provides trading in a few countries and I know that most of European countries do not have access to Webull.

Nonetheless, Options Trading on Webull is now available and it comes with a great deal of bells and whistles.

Which Webull Platform is Best For You ?

The first action you must take during the signup process is to determine what type of account you will be setting up.

By that I mean a Cash account vs. Margin account.

I published a short recent short video that explain the benefits of each so that you are fully educated to pick the one that fits your current needs.

I recommend that options trading beginners start with Cash Only account and later on can switch to a Margin account.

The second decision you will need to make in trading Options on Webull is to choose your platform.

Webull offers 3 choices for that.

You can trade Options from your mobile phone through the Webull App.

This option is very advantageous for traders on the GO who require limited data or information to enter and exit trades.

The app version of Webull is intuitive enough with minimal learning curve.

How To Access The Options Chain on Webull App

In early June, Webull App changed its interface to make it easier to access the option chain.

Now, when you select your stock, you have access to the chart as usual but the second choice is Options.

Here is a view for the very volatile AMC stock.

On the bottom left, you will choose your strategy from Single option, strangle, straddle, vertical, butterfly, condor , Iron condor.

I have mine set to Single Option as shown below.

Then, on the right, you will select to see Calls, Puts or both simultaneously.

In my other options trading Apps, I always like to view calls and puts next to each other.

I really think this layout minimize the potential of making a mistake when you are in a hurry to get into an option position.

The most recent version of Webull Desktop is version 4.

You can download it on your PC in lieu of using the more direct browser based trading platform.

By making this choice, you will need to setup your Dashboards once at the beginning and save them so that you are ready to trade each day with jsut a few clicks.

Now, you may be wondering why go through the trouble ?

The most obvious answer is the picture below.

Trading Options on Webull App is very comfortable even for beginner traders.

Webull Paper Trading Options

Webull has done a great job with the paper trading account of $1 Million.

However, this does not apply to Webull paper trading options at all.

This feature alone or the lack therefore is a hinderance for many options trading beginners.

It will hep a great deal of option traders when Webull provides the ability to paper trade options on this progressive trading platform.

Think of it as your self customized Options trading platform.

Because it is not obvious to Options trading beginners what they may need, I created this video tutorial below as a guide to setting up Webull Desktop 4.0.

How To Trade Options On Webull | Does Webull Have Level 2

The one thing that is still lacking in Webull Options Trading platform is the absence of a Paper trading account.

Yes Webull account comes with a $1 Million Paper/Demo Account but that is only for stocks trading.

Many Option traders still need practice and back testing of their strategies before they go Live with real money.

Webull Option Trading Restrictions

Apart of the above mentioned demo account, do not expect to options on webull right after your first initial deposit.

In fact, it may take of to 5 business days for your account to settle and it is only after that delay when Webull will allow you to trade options.
