Binary Options

Binary options trading has enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years, with a significant number of traders opting to experience the financial markets via this exciting and highly interactive trading format.

In the most basic form of binary options trading, traders speculate between two possible outcomes of a security’s value. Unlike other forms of trading, if a security’s price moves in favour of a trader’s prediction and stays that way until the close of the trade, the trader will gain a fixed return regardless of the extent of the price change. In the same way, if a security’s value moves against a trader’s forecasted outcome and remains in that position until the end of the option’s time period, a fixed loss of 100% will ensue. However, there will often be other options also open to traders – such as closing a trade earlier and walking away with a lower profit or loss – as well as the potential ability for traders to double their trade or extend its length.

The ETX Binary platform gives traders to a large number of binary products, including Stocks, Indices, Forex Pairs and Commoditie.

Different Types of Binary Options

There are a few ways of trading options with ETX Binary. These include:

  • High/Low Binary Trading

    High/Low binary trading is the most popular type of binary trading. It is relatively straightforward in its operation; the trader takes a position on whether a security’s price will increase or decrease by a certain expiry date and time. If the outcome aligns with the trader’s prediction, the trade will be successful – if not, it will be unsuccessful. It should again be noted, however, that as previously mentioned, traders will generally have the ability to exit a trade early, but with a consequentially reduced loss or profit level.

  • One Touch Options

    One touch options operate in a slightly different manner. Rather than focusing on whether a trade will end higher or lower, with one touch traders try and calculate whether a product will finish above or below certain levels (established at the start of the trade), with the levels equidistant above and below the value of the product at the trade’s initiation. Traders will ‘call’ if they think that the product will be above that higher level by the trade’s close. Conversely, they will ‘put’ if they believe that the product’s value will have dropped beneath the specified lower level.

  • Long Term and Short Term Binary Options

    ETX Capital clients can select the duration of a binary trade themselves. The ETX Binary platform enables traders to select from a range of option times for different trades, with time periods ranging anywhere from one minute to one day.
