Frequently Asked Questions
A Binary Option is a type of option where the trader takes a yes or no position on the price of a financial asset, and the resulting payoff is all or nothing. Because of this characteristic, Binary Options can be easier to understand and trade than traditional options.
Binary Options are cash-settled as European-style options, meaning they can only be exercised on the expiration date. If, at expiration, the options settle in-the-money, the buyer or seller of the options receives a pre-specified dollar amount. Similarly, if the options settle out-of-the-money, the buyer or seller receives nothing. This provides a known upside (gain) or downside (loss) risk assessment. Unlike traditional options, Binary Options provide full payout no matter how far above (or below) the option settles from the strike price.
Despite the term "all or nothing", depending on the actual trading platform, "nothing" can actually mean "something". This means that at expiration time the owner of the option may actually get a certain payout amount, even if the option expired "out of the money".
Despite the term "all or nothing", depending on the actual trading platform, "nothing" can actually mean "something". Sometimes the owner of an option that settles out-of-the-money may receive a certain payout amount, even if the option expired "out of the money".
Very often, you may encounter binary options under another name. In the foreign exchange market, Binary Options are known under the name of digital options.
1. Learn the two outcome options. A trader of Binary Options needs to anticipate the expected direction of the price movement of the underlying asset. Within most platforms, the two choices are referred to as Put and Call. Put is the prediction of a price decline, while Call is the prediction of a price increase. Unlike traditional options, knowing the magnitude of the movement is not required. Instead, one must only be able to correctly predict whether the price of the chosen asset will be higher or lower than the strike price. If the investor has an opinion about an underlying asset and wants to places a trade, s/he can trade Binary Options.
2. Decide your position. Evaluate the current market conditions surrounding your chosen asset and determine whether the price is more likely to rise or fall. If your insight is correct, on the expiration date, your payoff is the settlement value of your contract. The return rate on each winning trade is decided upon by BinaryUNO and this amount is always made known upfront.
3. Learn the advantages of trading Binary Options over Traditional Options.
• Binary Options are generally simpler to trade because they require only a sense of direction of the price movement of the underlying asset, whereas traditional options require a sense of direction as well as the magnitude of the price movement. No actual assets are ever bought or sold, so the selling or shares and stop losses are not part of the process.
• Binary Options always have a controlled risk to reward ratio, meaning the risk and reward are pre-determined at the time the contract is acquired. Traditional options have no defined boundaries of risk and reward and, therefore, the gains and losses can be limitless.
• Binary Options provide nearly all the trading and hedging strategies that are possible while trading traditional options. Both fundamental and technical analysis strategies can be used to increase the accuracy of price movement prediction.
• Unlike a traditional option, the payout amount is not proportional to the amount by which the option ends up in-the-money. As long as a Binary Option settles in-the-money by even one tick, the winner receives the entire fixed payoff amount.
• Binary Options offer contracts with short-term durations. In some markets, Binary Options contracts close multiple times throughout the trading day while others may last as long as a year. Some brokers provide contract times of as short as thirty seconds. This provides the trader with several investment opportunities and flexibility as markets change over time.
A binary option is a type of option in which the payoff can take only two possible outcomes,
either some fixed monetary amount of some asset or nothing at all.
A binary option will always offer a fixed return. BinaryUno typically returns 70-85% when an option expires “in the money” and on certain options (subjected to terms & conditions), refunds 0-10% when an option expires “out of the money”.
For example: On an invested sum of 100$ an expiry “in the money” will return 170$-185$ to the client. Should the option expire “out of the money” then BinaryUno will reimburse 0$-10$ to the client’s balance (subjected to terms & conditions).
The strike price of an option is determined by BinaryUno based on live pricing feeds supplied on the market.
The expiry time is the time and date that an option expires. The expiry time displayed to clients automatically adjusts according to the GMT clock.
Purchased options may be closed prior to the normal expiry time of the option up to the “no more trades” time. Closing an option is available within several minutes from the purchase time. (Note: Close functionality may not be active at all times and for all options).
An option which expires “in the money” is one which at expiry the condition on the option is fulfilled. The following are examples of options expiring “in the money”.
• A High/Low instrument where a high option expired above the strike price or a low option that expired below the strike price.
• A One Touch instrument where a touch option expired due to the strike price being reached or a no-touch option where the expiry time was reached without the strike price being reached.
• A Boundary instrument where an inbound option expired between the strike prices or an outbound option which expired below the lower strike price or above the upper strike price.
An option which expires “out the money” is one which at expiry the condition on the option is not fulfilled.
This scenario is referred to as “at the money” expiry. In such a case 100% of the initial investment will be returned to the client’s balance.
