HY Options Review


As of September 28, 2016, HYoptions is no longer accepting any new clients. Any traders interested in this company are encouraged to read the HYCM review to learn about the company's other trading opportunities.

HY Options, headquartered in Limassol, Cyprus, is a market leader in providing retail and institutional investors with direct access to binary options. HY Options is regulated by CySEC and is a trading name of FTSL Financial Trading Solutions Ltd. HY Options offers binary options on all products including FX, metals, commodities, stocks, indices and more.


There are three accounts to choose from at HY Options. The Silver account requires a minimum deposit of $100, the Gold account must be funded with $2,500 and a VIP account can be opened with $10,000.

All three accounts receive an account manager, some personal instruction and can be opened either on the web or mobile platforms.

Holders of the Gold Account benefit from trading reports and signals , advanced training and a professional account manager .

Traders in the VIP account can access and trade through the VIP team. They receive leading market and account updates through a range of different options, access to leading market analysis tools through Trading Central, a 1-on-1 educational program on fundamental and technical strategies, 1-on-1 training with an account manager on market analysis, and live market information, access to HY Options financial analysts and access to their innovative Pro-Daily website.

For Day Up/Down, Long Term and Pairs, the minimum investment amount is $10. For 60 seconds it is $5.

I was surprised that a demo account is not offered.

HY Options offers many intriguing bonuses for its account holders:

  • 250 USD to 999 USD – 35% bonus
  • 1000 USD to 2499 USD – 50% bonus

In addition, HY Options offers binary options on numerous blue chip and tech stocks including Google, Apple, Facebook, Goldman Sachs and IBM.

Since the trading hours for each asset type differs from the other, HY Options gives traders the heads up on when they can place trades by providing a PDF file which lists the exact times for each asset class in different parts of the world.

HY Options offers the standard binary options such as Ladder Options, where clients can select a product to trade and are given a range of price levels which are arranged at equal intervals like a ladder, hence the name. These levels have different expiry times and payout levels. In short, a ladder binary option specifies that the market has to rise beyond, or fall below, several price levels, after certain periods of time while the trade is active.

The long term binary option gives clients the ability to take positions on options that will expire in a predetermined time in the future. And the Pairs option allows clients to choose between two products and pick which product will perform better relative to the other.

An interesting option is the Day Up/Down Binary Option whereby traders speculate on the price of the underlying asset being either higher or lower than the entry rate at expiry. The expiry time specified is within the same day as when the option is placed.

Day Up/Down Option Explained
Day Up/Down Option Explained

This is very similar to a Day Up/Down Binary Options. The main difference is that expiry is 60 seconds after placing a trade. The trader predicts whether the price of the product will be lower or higher than the entry rate at the end of 60 seconds.


HY Options accepts only two payment methods: Credit/Debit cards or Bank Wires.

When a withdrawal amount is requested via the online funds withdrawal form, HY Options processes the sum of the original deposit back to a credit card. All other transactions are returned to a bank account.


The FAQ section is nicely divided up into separate areas -- Account FAQ’s, Platform FAQ’s, Trading FAQ’s and Payment FAQ’s—so the answers to trader questions can be easily found.

Double up enables traders to increase their initial investment at any time during the option term. The trader can “double up” his investment amount.

The Roll over features gives clients the opportunity to postpone the expiration time of a position to one of the next options. Clients would use this feature if they don't feel that their original prediction was correct, or if a trade approaching expiry is closed and a trade of the same size and direction is opened for the next period.

The Settle Now function allows traders to sell their binary option up to 1 hour before the option expires. If the trader wants to exit his option before it expires, he can click on the ”Sell” button in the Settle Now zone and the system will offer a price to close the trade at that time.

The prices shown in green on the platform indicate a higher rate than the previous trading day's closing level. Red indicates a lower rate than the previous trading day's closing level.
