How to trade

Trading on the HighLow Binary site is similar to most other standard sites.

  • Choose the asset you wish to trade upon and the available expiry time
  • Enter the amount of money you wish to invest on the trade, and choose the direction, High or Low, that you believe the rate will move
  • Click on "Invest" and watch your profits grow

Trade types

HighLow Binary offers two basic trade types, each with two "sub-types."

  1. HighLow - The standard binary options trade type, in which traders must determine if the asset price will close higher or lower than the “strike rate” - the asset price when the transaction is placed. Payouts run from 180-190%, and expiry times range from 15 minutes to the end of the day.
  2. Turbo - Similar to High/Low, with expiry times ranging from 30 seconds to 5 minutes.
  3. HighLow / Turbo Spread - In place of a current strike rate, traders have a Bid/Ask spread - an upper and lower range for the asset price to reach by expiry time. Traders determine if the asset will either close above the Ask price (the upper level) or below the Bid price (lower level). Payouts are as high as 200%.

Pros and Cons of HighLow Binary


  • The absolute highest ROI that we have seen
  • Same day withdrawals that are much easier than most other brokers offer
  • Fantastic educational videos


  • Not nearly as many tradable assets as most brokers
  • Customer service phone number only available in Australia


The experience of HighLow Binary is clear, and the site is one of the most user-friendly ones that we have seen. We would like to see more assets, more languages on the site and more countries with quick access to the customer service team, but the excellent training videos, the complete trustworthiness and exceptionally high ROIs make the site a wonderful broker.
