What is a binary option?

A binary option is a prediction of which direction the price of an underlying asset will take by an expiry time.  For example, if the price of gold is currently 1500, will it rise or fall by 5:00 PM?  If the trader predicts correctly, he will receive the full payout stated in the contract.  With a binary option, the trader never purchases or sells an asset, he merely predicts the direction, and the trade expires in-the-money even if he was only right by a single pip.  Binary options are a safe way of trading, as the risk/reward is known from the outset.  Payout structures vary, and are usually between 70% - 550% of the investment amount (depending on the type of option).  Binary options have been growing rapidly in popularity since 2008, and became regulated by CySEC in 2012.

An option expires in the money when the actual price of an asset is different from the trader's prediction. If this is the case, the option does not yield any return.

Rates are the quoted prices of the underlying assets.  The rate is the price offered by FMTrader, based on live feeds from Reuters.  Please not that rates offered by FMTrader are not always reflective of exact market prices – they can vary up to a few pips.  The rates we present in the trading boxes on our home page are those at which FMTrader is willing to sell the options for.

What is the expiration rate?

The expiry rate is the price of the underlying asset at the time of expiry according to feed providers such as Reuters. This is the determining factor that indicates whether the option has expired in-the-money or out-of-the-money.

What is the expiration time?

The expiration time is the time and date at which an option expires.

Why do the rates continue to change before I make a decision?

Like the market, rates at FMTrader are dynamic and change every second.  The market fluctuations affect our automatic pricing engine, which displays rates in real-time.  However, here at FMTrader, rate capturing is as good as technology allows.  Additionally, you have the option to cancel your trade if you did not receive the exact rate you wished to trade on.

For your convenience, FMTrader makes rate analysis as easy as possible, by showing a blinking movement every time the price fluctuates. Moreover, the price turns green upon upward movement, or red upon downward movement.

Why am I unable to make a trade?

Unsuccessful trades are usually a result of insufficient funds, or if you are attempting a trade on an asset outside of the market trading hours.  If neither of these reasons are the case, please contact us by mail to, or by phone.
