Notice:The European regulator ESMA made a prohibition of binary and digital options to retail EEA traders starting from the 02.07.2018. In case you still want to trade binary options, you need to acquire the status of a professional trader on which this regulation does not apply. I recommend you have a look at the article – How to get the PRO status to continue trading Binary options
Binary options are not promoted or sold to retail EEA traders. If you are not a professional client, please leave this page.

Risk Warning: Your capital might be at risk as all types of trading carries certain risks.
How digital options work and how they differ from binaries
With digital options, you still have to decide whether the price will go up or down. What is different, however, is that you also choose your strike price. That means that you have in your own hands the profit which you can make from an option. If you, for example, choose high strike price and you will go for a call option you can earn up to 900% from your investment. If you decide to choose a strike price only a little bit higher than the current price of the asset is, you will earn for example 100%. But bare in mind that the further away the strike price is from the current price of an asset the more riskier your trade gets. That is also the reason why you are being rewarded with higher payouts in case of a correct prediction. Digital options are also obtained with the „buy out“ tool which allows you to sell your options prematurely.
Where to find strike price
Strike prices can be found on the right parallel line. Once you select your strike price you will instantly see how much you can get from a successful trade. As the price of the asset changes so do the payouts. Once you evaluate risks and profits of your trade you can open a position.
