Comprehensive review

Established all the way back in 1999, has become a well-known name in the online trading space by now. Owned by the company Regents Market Group, the brand was originally launched in 2000 as, before changing its name to in 2013.

As the name implies, the broker was originally focused on financial betting in binary options, but has also expanded its selection of trading instruments to include a wide range of forex pairs, CFDs on indices, stocks, and commodities, as well as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin.

In 2017, the company took a bold move by becoming one of the first brokers in traditional finance to introduce bitcoin-denominated trading accounts for non-EU clients, in addition to accepting deposits and withdrawals in cryptocurrency. today has offices in Malta and Malaysia, while also holding regulatory permits in British Virgin Islands and Vanuatu. The broker claims to have over 1 million accounts worldwide, although the number of active clients is only about 100,000 according figures published on its website.

Over the years, has won many awards for its services and innovation in the binary options trading space, which it pioneered when it launched in the early 2000s by offering retail traders an opportunity to place small bets on binary options. Before brought its innovation to the market, binary options trading was largely reserved only for very big traders and professional players who could afford to place large bets on the direction of the market.

The range of trading platforms offered by is unusually large, with three different trading platforms offered for binary options trading, and the classic MetaTrader 5 (MT5) offered for trading in all other assets.

Among the three binary options platforms, SmartTrader and Ladders are both relatively simple options for people who just want a basic web-based trading interface, while’s Webtrader platform offers a wider selection of trading instruments, as well as more choices when it comes to charting and technical analysis.

In addition to this, the broker also offers a very handy “drag-and-drop” tool that lets systematic traders create trading algorithms for binary options on their own without any coding. Algorithms can then be set to automatically execute trades, or be sold to other users on the broker’s own marketplace.

Another nice thing to take note of with this broker is the large library of educational resources available on its website, which may be particularly useful for new binary options traders. The free content available to their traders also includes regular webinars and video updates on a range of interesting topics related to trading in all markets.

New binary options traders have the choice to sign up with either a “Virtual account,” which is a demo account with $10,000 to practice with, or a “Standard account” with real money to trade with. Traders who wish to trade other assets have similar choices on the MT5 platform, with a separate account type for traders interested in trading volatility indices only.

The minimum initial deposit to start trading with real money varies with the payment method used, but starts as low as $5 with several online money transfer services such as Skrill and Neteller. For regular bank transfers, however, the minimum transfer amount is $500.
