Types of Binary Options

This company offers the following types of binary options to its clients:
  • High/Low binary options: These are the most common and traded binary options due to the fast and high income that offer to the trader and their simplicity compared with other financial instruments. With these options the trader must predict if the financial asset (the underlying instrument) price will end above or below the entry price (the adquisition price of the option) once the contract expires. Normally, the expiration of the High/Low options offered by BetOption is one hour, however, the client has the possibility to trade with binary options with shorter and longer maturity periods, from 60 seconds to 1 year.
  • Above/Below binary Options: These are similar contracts to the  classic High/Low options, in which the binary options trader must predict if the underlying price will end up or down a certain price barrier (the strike price), established by the broker. Unlike the High/Low, options the exercise price is always different from the current market price at the time the option is purchased, so the trader must not only predict market direction but also the magnitude of movement. By its complexity, these options provide a higher payment or performance.
  • 60 seconds binary options: These options consist of High/Low binary options with an expiration period of just 60 seconds. For these reason these derivatives are ideal for traders interested in making money with fast transactions, especially in volatile markets like Forex, oil and gold for example.

Trading Platform

Finmax has a web-based trading platform (developed by the company) which has the advantage that it does not require downloading or installation, so it can be accessed from any location with an Internet connection. This gives the trader a great advantage as he or she can trade with binary options from anywhere which means greater flexibility. This application is designed specifically for transactions with High/Low and Above/Below binary options, so it has several functions and tools for position management with instruments of this type. 

Among other things, these functions allow the opening of new positions (acquisition of new binary options) and management of options that are still active. Also, this platform offers other trading tools such as updated quotes of the underlying assets offered by this broker, price charts and others.

In the work area, we can see a graph that we can change to a preferred view. In this area the trader can access the various timeframes, most popular assets, selected assets, all kinds of expiration periods, technical indicators such as Relative Strength Index (RSI) and SMA and management and risk information tools on open and closed operations. On the trading platform, there is an a window which allows to open trades in just 1-2 clicks.

This platform includes the following additional tools:
  • Double Up: Through this function the traders have the possibility to increase their investment and double their profits. Basically, when an option is close to its maturity and the trader predicts that the market will continue in the same direction, BetOption offers the possibility to  “do it again” by clicking on Double Up. By doing this, the trader creates a new trade with the same conditions but with the current price of the underlying asset.
  • Hedge: The hedge tool automatically opens a trade in the opposite direction of the original transaction if you begin to doubt the accuracy of your previous decision, ie if you conclude that your current position is going to have a loss. Losses with binary options that end Out The Money can be kept to a minimum.
  • Early Closure: It is a tool created to allow the trader to sell an option back to the broker before the contract expires. In other words, it offers the possibility to close a position before the option expires. This feature can be quite useful when the underlying instrument is moving against the trader, because it allows to cut the losses and potentially make a small profit if the option is In The Money, even momentarily.

 –Through this platform, the Finmax customer can carry out transactions with a minimum volume of $5 while the maximum transaction volume is $5000.
