    • Hello Sara, Please read article CFD trading to understand how this type of trading works. At IQ Option the only difference between tab cryptocurrencies and CFD is that with CFDs you can you use leverage while you trade. Apart from that, everything is the same.

  • Hello Michael…I’ve been trading binary & digital option and noticed that trading time is one minute..I have not seen the time limit for CFDs and Forex.Please enlighten me

    • Hello Clifford,
      Binary and digital options always have an expiry time. When it is reached, the trade closes and evaluates. On the other hand, forex and other CFD trading instruments do not have an expiry time and you decide when you want the trade to close. I hope this is clear now. If not, don’t hesitate to ask anything.
