What is Binary Option?

Binary options are a simple and rewarding financial trading product. Binary options deliver a fixed return on every trade which is made, depending on whether the trade was “In The Money”, “Out Of The Money” or a “Tie”. Binary options – which are also referred to as digital options – are one of the fastest growing financial trading products in the world because their simplicity, together with the certainty which they offer on every trade, makes them an attractive trading tool for many financial investors. When buying a binary option the potential return it offers is certain and known before the purchase is made. Binary options can be bought on virtually any financial product and can be bought in both directions of trade either by buying a “Call”/“Up” option or a “Put”/“Down” option. This means that an investor can go long or short on any financial product simply by buying a binary option. Binary options are offered against a fixed expiry time which may be e.g. 5-30 minutes in the future, an hour ahead or at the close of the trading day. Binary options once bought cannot be resold before the expiry time is reached.


What is an Underlying Asset?

Assets are any tradable products which a financial market can be based upon. The most common assets which are traded through financial markets are commodities (e.g. gold, oil, platinum), stocks (e.g. Microsoft, Nike, Citi, Coca Cola), currency pairs (e.g. euro-dollar, dollar-yen), stock indices (e.g. NASDAQ, Dow Jones, FTSE) and bonds. In binary options trading investors buy options on individual assets on a fixed expiry time in order to try to benefit from the price changes which are occurring within the underlying asset.


What is the maximum invstment level?

Green rates indicate that an asset is trading at a higher level than it closed at on the previous day. Red rates indicate that an asset is trading at a lower level than it closed at on the previous day.
