Frequently Asked Questions

During your trading journey, you might have some questions.
Our FAQs will guide you on all you need to know about options trading with Markets Trading.


Binary options are a type of option or financial trade that have only two possible outcomes: you either earn a fixed amount of money or you lose a fixed amount of money.
Winning or losing depends on the price of the selected underlying asset closing in the direction as predicted by a trader, at the expiry time of the option.

An underlying asset is a widely traded financial security that varies in price on a continuous basis.
The main asset classes offered to binary options traders are currency pairs (forex), stocks, indices and commodities.
In binary options trading, a trader is not actually buying or selling these assets but instead, they are simply making a prediction regarding the direction that the price of the asset will move by a predefined expiry time.

An expiry time defines a pre-determined point in time when an options contract is no longer active.
At this point, the investment made is exercised, with a correct prediction resulting in a trader being allocated a profit, or losing their investment if the prediction was wrong.
An expiry time can be as short as 15 seconds, right up to the end of the day.

An option is said to have expired ‘in the money’ if a trader correctly predicts the price direction movement of an asset on expiry, thereby earning the trader a profit.
An ‘out of the money’ option means that the trader forfeits their investment amount because they made an incorrect prediction of the underlying asset’s price direction movement at expiry.
