Trading Platform

IQ Option uses its own trading platform, a fresh change from the SpotOption platform which is used by almost all the major broker sites, including Banc de Binary, and GOptions. Unlike some competitor sites, the possibility of inadvertently setting the wrong investment is not possible. The platform has many unique features, which are specially designed to make it simple and easy to use. In order to test the platform with a beginner, we asked our secretary if she could master the platform. Our secretary does not have any previous experience with binary options. We gave her 15 minutes to learn, after which we came back to check the situation. When we came back, she told us that 15 minutes was more than sufficient. She was very familiar with all the main features after a couple of minutes. She also told us that she had never been interested in investing

RISK WARNING: YOUR CAPITAL MIGHT BE AT RISK

Should I Open an Account with IQ Option?

Right from the start I can see I am not dealing with the usual Binary Options website that shows me a glamorous girl, a limousine or stacks of money. The first thing you will notice is that the home page is free of cheap marketing tactics and to be honest that makes me feel like I’ve accessed a trading venue, not an online casino like a lot of the other brokers on the market. IQ Option entered the marketplace in 2013 and since then they’ve done a great job at differentiating themselves from other brokers. First of all, their platform is proprietary, you won’t find it anywhere else. The biggest advantage is the charts, where Japanese candlestick charts and a a list of many technical indicators like Moving Averages, Bollinger Bands, MACD, RSI, Stochastic an 7 others can be used. This is a big thumbs up because as we know, usually binary options brokers severely suck when it comes to charting and additional technical tools. Something that many traders will be happy about is IQ Option’s low minimum deposit of just 10 US Dollars, and of course the free Demo account that is really free. Registration is easy and you can start trading immediately on Demo – for a real account, your IDs need to be verified as is the case with all CySEC brokers. Traders who want to feel “special” have the option to open a VIP account for as little as $3,000 and they actually get VIP treatment: up to 92% return in the case of correct prediction.

RISK WARNING: YOUR CAPITAL MIGHT BE AT RISK

Option Types

The investor can have the option expire in 60 seconds, or more cautiously select an expiration time, such as 30 minutes or even 24 hours. However, they are also much risky than longer maturity options. Profits can be huge, but losses are also frequent.

Tournaments

IQ option offers binary options tournaments*. I have never seen these on any other broker site, so I tried them with great interest. At the beginning, all traders get a tournament balance of $10,000 for their use during the tournament. Winners are determined by their tournament balances at the end, participants with the highest balance win the first place prize etc. Some tournaments have a guaranteed prize fund, which means that, if participation fees do not cover the whole prize pool, the broker will pay the rest. Some tournaments also have rebuy possibilities, meaning that, if you lose your whole tournament balance, you can rebuy yourself back into the tournament, for the same entry fee and you get a tournament balance of $10,000 again. Tournaments usually last for 30 minutes. By participating in a tournament, you can profit 100 times (sometimes even more) the entry fee.
