Binary options are often considered a form of gambling rather than investment because of their negative cumulative payout (the brokers have an edge over the investor) and because they are advertised as requiring little or no knowledge of the markets. Gordon Pape, writing in Forbes.com in 2010, called binary options websites "gambling sites, pure and simple", and said "this sort of thing can quickly become addictive... no one, no matter how knowledgeable, can consistently predict what a stock or commodity will do within a short time frame".[23]

One of the first things that traders will notice after opening an account with Option Financial Markets is that they offer a uniquely diverse selection of well over 200 global assets. Combined with the three trading methods offered on their SpotOption powered platform, traders can easily make informed and profitable trades on both short term and long term positions. OFM does not charge any fees or commission on these individual trades.
In a portfolio, investors would want to diversify the risk on various asset classes and strategies. The same in binary options trading: the idea is to split the risk to offer multiple entries and therefore reducing the risk of losing all the invested amount. If your analysis shows that the DJIA (Dow Jones Industrial Average) will move to the upside for the period ahead, they you’re interested in buying call options. How about the expiration date?
Each trader must put up the capital for their side of the trade. In the examples above, you purchased an option at $44.50, and someone sold you that option. Your maximum risk is $44.50 if the option settles at $0, therefore the trade costs you $44.50. The person who sold to you has a maximum risk of $55.50 if the option settles at $100 ($100 - $44.50 = $55.50).
Binary Options trading is a quick and much less complicated way of trading than for example traditional forex trading. Therefor it does not come as a surprise that trading in binary options has attracted a lot of traders over the past few years. However, even though a trader can make huge winnings over short time periods, a trader can loose a lot of money over short periods as well. You need to approach this market the same as you would any other. Knowledge, experience, and emotional control are still the factors for success.
As a completely based web-tech platform, there is no need to download any software with 24Option. They have the best looking website we have seen thus far as the gold letters on the black background is both sophisticated and contemporary. Just above each underlying asset, is live information and other chats with just a simple click. Both the Glossary and FAQ sections are current and complete. The website is available in 18 languages including German, Arabic, Spanish, et al.
As your account stabilizes you may trade the same amount on every trade, regardless of the fluctuations in your account. For example, the balance in my trading accounts stays the same. I withdraw profits at the end of each month, and any drops in the balance are usually quickly remedied by a few winning trades. Therefore, there isn't the need to make tiny changes to my position size on every trade. If your account value stays around $5000 (because of profit withdrawals, or profits and losses balance each other out), and you risk 2% per trade, then risk $100 per trade.

The FinPari platform is extremely user friendly. I can honestly say this as SpotOption platform is my personal favourite. It has most of the features offered on standard SpotOption platforms and is very easy to navigate. However, I have to deduct a few points as a result of the false information about their regulations and over-the-top marketing on the main page of the website.
This needs to happen before you start trading, obviously, but even so, you are not opening an account yet just to trade. Depending upon the site, some have locked features that become available once you create and fund an account. One of the big ones is a demo trading account. Demo trading allows you to use the site’s software, making trades in real time, but with zero risk since you’re actually just using a practice account. The vast majority of brokers require you to create and fund an account before you are eligible to do this, and even then, you can usually only use a demo account for a few days at a time before the choice is taken away from you. Still, it is extremely valuable to you and your trading. It gives you experience with the site, eliminating a lot of potential mistakes. It also allows new traders to get a feel for what actual trading is like. You might need to contact customer service to get this feature.
In 2013, CySEC prevailed over the disreputable binary options brokers and communicated intensively with traders in order to prevent the risks of using unregulated financial services. On September 19, 2013, CySEC sent out a press release warning investors against binary options broker TraderXP, who was not and had never been licensed by CySEC.[35] On October 18, 2013, CySEC released an investor warning about binary options broker NRGbinary and its parent company NRG Capital (CY) Ltd., stating that NRGbinary was not and had never been licensed by CySEC.[36]
Fifth, it is essential to keep a clear head while making any decisions about binary options trading. Beginners should avoid trading when they are emotionally disturbed, as emotions can create havoc with your trading. It is very easy to make the wrong decisions in an emotional state, so it is advisable to stay away from any form of trading until you’ve calmed down and cleared your mind.
Is binary options trading safe? As mentioned in the previous sections, it is safe as long as you’re a responsible trader. After all, there’s a difference between taking risks, which is necessary for any venture, and being risky, which is blindly being too ambitious in your trades. One of the most important and fundamental ways to reduce risks is choosing the right binary options brokers. Since it’s the platform where you’ll be doing your trading, you must check the following:

The first category of alleged fraud involves the refusal of certain Internet-based binary options trading platforms to credit customer accounts or reimburse funds after accepting customer money. These complaints typically involve customers who have deposited money into their binary options trading account and who are then encouraged by “brokers” over the telephone to deposit additional funds into the customer account. When customers later attempt to withdraw their original deposit or the return they have been promised, the trading platforms allegedly cancel customers’ withdrawal requests, refuse to credit their accounts, or ignore their telephone calls and emails.
A binary option is a fast and extremely simple financial instrument which allows investors to speculate on whether the price of an asset will go up or down in the future, for example the stock price of Google, the price of Bitcoin, the USD/GBP exchange rate, or the price of gold. The time span can be as little as 60 seconds, making it possible to trade hundreds of times per day across any global market.
Binary options have attracted traders of all experience levels—from beginners to professionals—who are in a quest for diversifying their investments. This type of trading has grown to a respected and credible practice over the years. Despite this, one of the concerns of many, especially when it comes to where they put their money, is the question: is binary options trading safe?

You get scammed (well done) !

In the UK, binary options were regulated by the Gambling Commission rather than the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).[57] This regulation, however, applied only to firms that had has gambling equipment in the UK.[58] The FCA in 2016 did propose bringing binary options under its jurisdiction and restricting them. They stated that binary options “did not appear to meet a genuine investment need”.[59] In March 2017, Action Fraud issued a warning on binary options.[60]
