Binary Capital Markets Review

Earn while you learn: Binary options trading can be fun

It stands to reason that when binary options traders look for an online broker, one of the things they look for is years of experience. While the logic of this is undeniable, it is not foolproof. Occasionally there are brokers that are relative newcomers to the field, yet conduct themselves like seasoned veterans. Binary Capital Markets (better known as BinaryCM) is such a broker. Established last year and based in Cyprus, the site is closely regulated by several international bodies, and has built an extensive and excellent video library of training videos, so that traders can "learn while they earn."

What is BinaryCM?

BinaryCM is a relatively young, Cypriot-based online options broker that is closely regulated not only by CySEC, but also by the EU, by Italian regulator CONSOB, the German BaFIN, and the British FCA. The platform provides an impressive array of trade types, including standard High/Low, 60-second, Long-term, One Touch, Ladder and Pairs. Experienced users can also trade Forex/CFDs. The training videos provided on the site are outstanding, and users can benefit from the trading signals provided by BinaryCM. The platform also has the SpotFollow feature, in which traders can replicate the trades of the site’s most successful traders.

BinaryCM Trading Platform

Available assets

The BinaryCM platform offers nearly 75 assets for trading, primarily stocks (31), but also a fair number of currencies, indices and commodities.

How to trade

Trading on the BinaryCM platform is a very straightforward process.

  1. Using the drop-down menus, choose an available asset and expiry time
  2. Choose your option - High, if you believe the asset price will be higher at the expiry time than when you place the trade, or Low if you believe it will be lower.
  3. Enter the amount of money you wish to invest on the option, and confirm the transaction

Trade types

Trade type: Description:
High/Low The standard binary options trade type. Traders determine if an asset price will rise or fall before the trade expires. Standard expiry times are 10-30 minutes from when the trade is executed
60-Second Similar to High/Low, but with much shorter expiry times (60 seconds, 2 minutes, 5 minutes)
One Touch Traders determine if an asset price will touch - even one time - a provided upper or lower limit before the trade’s expiry time.
Ladder Traders are provided with 5 potential strike rates for an asset, and determine which of them the asset price will close above or below. Traders can place several transactions within one ladder
Long-term Similar to High/Low, but with much longer expiry times (days, weeks months)
Pairs Rather than determining if an asset price will rise or fall, traders are presented with two similar assets (Gold vs. Silver, Amazon vs. eBay, etc.),and they determine which one will perform better than the other before the expiry time.

Pros and Cons of BinaryCM

  • SpotFollow copy trading feature
  • Several trade types with excellent ROI
