Then you click on a strike price, this bar is located on the right side of the screen. Right next to the strike price bar is also situated a bar indicating how much profit you can make from the investment. After choosing your strike price you basically only decide whether the price of the asset will be higher or lower at the time of expiration.

FX Options – features
IQ Option now offers 18 forex options that include forex pairs, indices and commodities (gold, silver, crude oil). If a trader chooses to get out of the position before the expiration date, he can prematurely close the trade to fix his profit or loss. FX Options do not fall under ESMA restrictions so they are unlike binary options available to EU traders. A great thing about this type of financial product is that the risk and potential profit of your investment is entirely in your hands and depends on the strike price and direction you chose.
