YesOption, established in 2012, was the first online broker to offer both Forex and Binary Options from the same single platform. Using advanced pricing algorithms they are able to offer high returns in Binary Options and competitive spreads in Forex.
There’s nothing easier than opening an account at YesOption. You just click on ‘open account’ and fill in the information and voila, you are ready to trade.
The trading page is very straight forward and even a novice trader can decide which currency pair to trade, how much to trade and whether it will go up or down. There is even a simple graph on the page so traders can see the currency’s daily performance.
There are three different accounts to select from at YesOption: Standard, Gold and Platinum. I saw no mention anywhere of a demo account. The standard account holder receives unrestricted access to all the trading facilities; all the assets, instruments, trading tools and unrestricted access to our customer service. He also receives one free withdrawal and one free personal coaching session with a YesOption analyst.
The Gold account offers the unrestricted access to all the trading facilities and tools, but traders also receive an extra 2% return on all winning trades. Gold account holders also receive 1 free withdrawal a month and 2 free personal coaching sessions with a YesOption analyst every month.
The platinum account offers unrestricted access to all the trading facilities and tools, and traders are entitled to an extra 4% return on all winning trades. Platinum account holders receive unlimited free withdrawals and unlimited personal coaching sessions with a YesOption analyst every month.
All three accounts are commission free and all YesOption account holders receive two weeks free high quality signals from a top signal provider.
The minimum amount a trader can invest in an option is $25 and the maximum amount is $2500. The maximum amount for a single short term option (60 seconds, 2 minutes and 5 minutes) is $1000.
I was surprised to see there was no demo account available.
On the landing page of the YesOption site, there is a silent video that visually presents the trading process. I found the lack of sound a bit disconcerting and had to check if it was my laptop that was at fault. Still, I was able to follow the explanation quite well.
When it comes to education, YesOption seems to be on top of things. The Education Academy houses a choice of videos for both the beginner and advanced trader.

At the time of this review, YesOption was offering a deposit bonus. However, no specifics were given and traders were asked to contact their account manager for details. In fact, other promotions were mentioned on the site such as the opportunity to win a free iPhone, but details were only available after registering and logging in.
As mentioned above, 2 weeks of free signals are given as soon as a deposit is made, with all signals being sent by SMS/email and viewable on the YesOption website when logged in.

YesOption Trading Platform
Traders can choose to trade high/low, one touch, boundary or short term options. The standard payouts for high/low options are 85% which is pretty well-placed in the market. Of course if you trade one-touch you’re looking at a much higher level of reward but then again your risk levels are higher too.
YesOption offers short-term expiries too, including 60 seconds, 2 minutes and 5 minutes. An excellent option for fundamental traders or traders that want to enter and exit trades quickly for purposes of hedging or pure enjoyment. You’re looking at 70% return on investment for the short term option.
With YesOption’s mobile app, traders can trade from anywhere at any time. The mobile app is fully functional and has all the features of the desktop version so you can trade the financial markets from the palm of your hand.
No download is required, and the browser can be accessed on your iPhone, android or tablet device. Traders can check their YesOption account, open a new account, view charts, news, check the markets, make deposits, open new trades, and access all the financial tools with the YesOption mobile site.
