What are binaries?

Binaries are fixed-odds trades that let you speculate on financial markets with limited risk – just decide whether you believe an event will occur within, or at the end of, a set timeframe. 

How do you trade binaries?

With binaries you choose from two possible outcomes: you ‘buy’ the binary if you believe the event will occur, or ‘sell’ the binary if you don’t think the event will occur. First, choose your binary type (Ladder, One Touch, Up/Down or Range) and the expiry or timeframe (five minutes to weekly) over which you want to trade. Then choose your market, EUR/USD for example.

Decide on a strike price from the strike list and decide if you want to buy or sell, then enter your trade size, which is the amount you are risking on the trade, and then place your trade. Follow your binary trade in your account – with binaries you are able to close out or reduce the size of a position early.
