Yep, have a $1,000,000 or larger account. No, I’m not joking. They claim it’s to protect against risk of assignment, but that’s complete BS. I’d argue that trading 1DTE options is actually riskier, and you can do that all day long with them.

I’ve heard you can trade SPX ODTE but Fidelity won’t allow SPY ODTE. You can, probably because SPX is cash settled, so no assignment risk. Other cash settled options also probably work.
