ICoption Trading Platform
Traders can choose to trade Long-Term options that rely heavily on a trader’s ability to analyze a specific market, stock or commodity’s outcome over an extended period of times and can last at least 3 days and sometimes days, weeks and months. The 60 Seconds option, on the other hand, has extremely short expiration dates.
Trading currency Pairs is quite simple. ICoption provides the various pairings that can be invested in, and all the trader has to do is predict which one will outperform the other and arrive at the expiration date at the better level than the other.
With a One Touch option a trade need only select an asset and the set amount he/she wishes to invest, which is in currency units. Then he waits to see if at any point during the contract the asset reached the level you had predicted. If it does, a trader can get a substantial payout reaching 500% at the moment it reaches the set level.
Payouts with the Ladder option can sometimes exceed up to 1500% under certain conditions. With this feature, traders select the levels or rates on the Ladder and the expiry time. The levels are spaced automatically and the chosen asset needs to end up at a specific rate prior to expiry for the option to be considered a winning one.
A Down option allows the trader to make a profit when the price of the asset at the time of expiry is lower than the price it was purchased at.
High options can earn the trader a profit if the conditions are opposite of the Down (low) option.
Social trading with iFollow allows traders to track and copy other traders’ positions, so when they place a winning trade, the new trader is guaranteed to profit as well. Following a leader is essentially copying all of his moves. Hence, for every new position the leader opens, a trader can open a similar position. This platform supports all standard binary options positions.
At the Trading Academy, traders can view videos on a host of interesting topics in several different areas such as binary strategies, platform tutorials and in-depth course on how to achieve successful binary option trading.

The financial glossary at the Trading Academy offers clear definitions of most all the terms utilized when trading binaries.
