Binary Options are a simple way to trade on commodities, shares, and FX by predicting whether the price of an asset will move up or down. Binary Options are structured around an up/down market proposition which predicts price direction. Place simple short-term trades on news events and market data without the need to own the asset itself.
Open a Binary Options trade for as short as one minute or as long as one hour on any of our most popular FX pairs and commodities. Option length can be set at 1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour.
Advantages of Trading Binary Options
Simplicity – Make short term trades on a simple up/down proposition in an array of markets.
Limited Risk –Know exactly how much you stand to earn and what is at risk before you place any trade.
Low Cost Contracts – Binary Options contracts are a zero-sum game and are priced between 0 and $100.
Short-Term Contracts - Rather than wait for your investments to profit, Binaries let you profit on real-time market activity.
How Do They Work?
To trade binary options, you simply predict whether the market will go up or down. There are two choices for every trade: call (up) and put (down).
For example, will the price of AAPL be above $105 at 3:00pm?
If you think it will go up, you buy the call option. If you think it will go down, you buy the put option. The price at which you buy is a value between zero and 100 and is not the actual price of the asset.
The price always settles at either 100 (if the answer is yes) or zero (if the answer is no). Your profit/loss is the difference between the settlement price and the price at which you bought the option. Trading with us is as simple as 1 2 3.
