Binaries are similar to traditional options but with one key difference: their final settlement value will be 0 or 100. This means your maximum risk and reward are always known and capped.

Binary Options Examples


A Binary Option is effectively a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ question. For example, will the Wall Street 30 close above 12375 today? If "Yes" is the answer, the Binary settles at 100. If "No", it settles at 0.

Capped Risk

Binary Options only range between 0 and 100, so your maximum risk is always fixed.

Fast moving

A small move in the underlying market can make a big difference to the value of your Binary Option.


You can place orders to trade out of a Binary position at any point before expiration.

Some background on Binary Options

Every day Binary Options give you hundreds of limited risk trading opportunities to take a position on a strictly limited risk basis, regardless of market volatility.

Binary Options are intuitive to trade: the price of a Binary Option, a figure varying between 0 and 100, is in essence the market’s view on the percentage likelihood of the option’s given outcome being realized.

One way of thinking about trading Binaries is this: if the ‘EUR/USD > 1.3980 3PM’ option is priced at 26 – 30, the market is indicating the EUR/USD has 26% - 30% chance of being above the 1.3980 level by 3pm.
