Notice they are also only indicative price - you couldnt necessarily ring up and trade them at that money. Its a theoretical value, and you could bid and get an offer at £1/t more - then up to you if you buy them at the quid more or not. You would also be subject to paying brokerage if you did trade.

The last May calls I did were £5/t to the farmer I think at £142 strike, which is the cost over the ring plus £1/t commission, so not that much more than it would cost the farmer direct with a broker. For that we are paying for the options on the day, managing the futures if they want to trade in and out (including any margin calls), sorting out the paperwork, and paying the brokerage with the futures broker. Not much to charge I dont think for the service.
