    Something about Binary Options, and the Broker Binary.com

    Abstract:Binary option is one of the most common forms of option. Compared with forex trading, binary option doesn’t involve trading lots, margin or leverage. Instead of actually trading an asset, binary option investors bet on whether the price of an underlying asset will be above or below the set mark at a certain time. Binary option bears considerable risks, as its mechanism is very similar to gambling.

      What is binary option?

      Binary option is one of the most common forms of option. Compared with forex trading, binary option doesnt involve trading lots, margin or leverage. Instead of actually trading an asset, binary option investors bet on whether the price of an underlying asset will be above or below the set mark at a certain time. Binary option bears considerable risks, as its mechanism is very similar to gambling.

    ESMAs prohibition on binary options

      Booming development followed by crackdown

      The rapid development of the internet has led to a proliferation of web-based binary option platforms, particularly after 2010. Yet among these emerging brokers, many conduct unauthorized business and make huge profits through their illicit practices. Facing with the overgrown binary option platforms, European Securities and Market Authority (ESMA) made an announcement last year, prohibiting the marketing, distribution and sale of binary options within EU boarders. As countries tighten their regulation, many binary option brokers choose to transfer their businesses to offshore companies in order to carry on their business operations.

      Visiting Binary.com

      Binary.com claims itself to be an award-winning front-runner in online binary option with a trade volume of over 2 billion USD, and WikiFX visited the company‘s branch in Malaysia upon investors’ requests. We arrived at the shopping centre where Binary.com is located, and found the company‘s office. However, it’s empty with no one inside, and there were few people inside the building.

      According to the assessment data from WikiFX App, Binary.com is rated at 3.29. The broker uses non-MT4 trading software, which investors should beware of. In addition, the WikiFX App‘s risk warning suggests both the VESC (Vanuatu)’s license and FSC (the Virgin Islands)‘s license held by the broker are in offshore regulation, while its FSA (Japan)’s license is suspected to be cloned, suggesting high risks. Investors need to be careful in choosing this broker.

      Choosing a compliant binary option broker

      Before making an investment, it‘s a good idea to do a thorough research on the broker and check its information from all aspects, like its compliance and regulation, authenticity of its claimed regulatory status, whether it manages clients’ assets in segregated account and customers feedback on the broker.
