On August 7, 2017, OptionsHouse merged with E*Trade. This means that your OptionsHouse account is now managed by E*Trade. As such, to access your account, you need to go through the E*Trade website.

While the site is different, the trading platform remains the same. This integration now allows current E*Trade customers to trade options at a whole new level. It also allows current OptionsHouse customers to have much more trading and banking options.

Logging Into Your OptionsHouse Account

  1. Visit here to begin the login process.

  2. Enter your OptionsHouse User ID and Password

  3. Click "Log On"

Forgot Your OptionsHouse User Name or Password? If you forgot your user ID, you must provide E*Trade with the email address you used to sign up for the account. If you remember your user ID, but forgot your password, you will need to enter your user ID and follow the prompts.
