What are binary options

A binary option is a type of option with a fixed payout in which you predict the outcome from two possible results. If your prediction is correct, you receive the agreed payout. If not, you lose your initial stake, and nothing more. It's called 'binary' because there can be only two outcomes – win or lose.

Advantages of binary options trading

Aside from the simplicity of its 'yes or no' proposition, binary options trading is also very flexible. It gives you the ability to trade:

  • All markets

    Trade on underlying markets that include forex, stock indices, commodities, and more.

  • All market conditions

    Predict market movement using up/down, touch/no touch, and in/out trade types.

  • All durations

    Take a short-term or long-term view with trade durations from 10 seconds to 365 days.

  • All payouts

    Earn payouts much higher than your initial stake.. Losses are limited to your initial stake and nothing more.

Range of markets

Binary options allow you to trade on a wide range of underlying markets. One of the advantages of trading binary options is that you are not buying or selling an actual asset, only a contract that determines how that asset performs over a period of time. This limits your risk and makes it easy for anyone to start trading.
