Binary Options Broker Review Summary Chart

Here at forex trading we do our best to offer REAL, hands-on, honest reviews on those who offer services related to binary options, including binary options brokers.

While some other sites may provide bland and generic reviews which clearly show that they haven’t ever even looked at the broker, we only review brokers where we have actually opened accounts and traded. Trading and getting a feel of the broker is the only way to truly understand if the broker is any good. We test out all their features, including the payment processing and of course (the most important) withdrawal features.

Most brokers offer trading platforms upon subscribing. Unlike most Deriv sites, we do not think that this bonus should be of any relevance to the broker score, as the bonuses usually do more damage than good, as they tie your deposited money to the broker, inserting severe limits to how and when fund withdrawal is possible.

STOCKPAIR GET OFFICIAL CYSEC LICENSE

Better late than never. On March 21 StockPair officially receive a CIF (Cypriot Investment Firm) license from CySEC (Cyprus securities exchange commission) and became a fully regulated broker. The license was granted to Nextrade Worldwide Ltd, which is Stockpair’s parent company Nextrade Worldwide under license number 229/14 and registration number 291905. The official CySEC listing can be found here.

This achievement was actually not a surprise, and many speculated that this was the reason that Aussie Forex brokers stopped accepting US customers late last month as a prerequisites for the regulation.

StockPair already has a very good reputation as one of the best binary options brokers around, and this just adds another layer of security to an already well established reputable broker.

 

Stockpair, one of today’s most popular binary options brokers for US citizens, has, as of today February 23rd, 2014 stopped accepting trading clients from the United States. This may seem to be a big surprise considering their popularity. However, with increasing popularity comes increased attention from other sources within the USA, meaning it very well may be that increased pressure from US financial legal entities such as the SEC or CFTC may have finally taken its toll and caused Stockpair to reconsider if the reward was worth the headache.

Also, being on the verge of receiving licensing from the various regulatory bodies such as CySEC may have also played a part in this decision.

In a shocking move forex brokers, one of the oldest binary options brokers, have announced that they are closing their doors. On Friday, November 8th, iOption notified its employees of their decision to close shop, effective immediately.

Rumors have it that iOption has accumulated a significant debt lately, in the few million USD range, making their decision to shut down seem a bit more logical. I have also started to receive a number of complaints from traders lately that iOption has been delaying withdrawal requests. Thankfully most of these issues were handled and traders did receive their funds.

It is still not clear what will happen to trader funds, but my advice to all iOption traders is to try and make a withdrawal sooner rather than later. I hope but doubt that they will be processed.

The iOption website is still up and running. Rumor has it that they are in the midst of being purchased by a larger broker, but it is still not clear whether they will continue operation using the iOption brand or will be devoured by the larger broker.
