Why can’t I short future options?

Future options are already infrequently traded. Shorting future options is very infrequent in the real world, so to reflect this we have disabled it on our platform.

How did I lose so much on futures?

Futures have very high multipliers. Each future has different multipliers and so a small change in the underlying asset price can, in some cases, create very large losses (or gains).

Futures do not trade at the same time as the stock market. Please see CMEGroup for the futures you are interested in. For example, currency futures trade nearly 24 hours whereas others have a trading halt throughout most of the day.
