What are Countdowns?

Countdowns is a fixed-odds product where  the objective is to place a trade depending  on whether you think the price of a financial instrument will be higher or lower than the current price at the end of a range of short-term timeframes.​

How do you trade Countdowns?

Choose your market (for example EUR/USD) and the timeframe (from 30 seconds up to one hour) over which you want to trade. Next, enter a stake size (minimum £20), which is the amount you are willing to risk. Finally, decide whether you think the price will be above or below at the end of your chosen timeframe and place your trade.
