## Intraday

This type of option allows profit earnings by making predictions about increases in currency exchange rates between two time periods during a single day. The profit margin for this option is fixed at 1.80, thus if successful, the net profit will amount to 80% of the amount initially invested.

Example:

You expect that between 15:30 and 17:00 the EUR/USD exchange rate will increase and you take out an intraday up option with the conditions stated for 100 USD. If the exchange rate at 17:00 exceeds the one at 15:30, your profit will amount to 100 x 1.80 = 180 USD and your net profit consists of the difference, 180-100 = 80 USD.

This type of option allows profit earnings by making predictions about a decreases in currency exchange rates between two time periods during a single day. The profit margin for this option is fixed at 1.80, thus if successful, the net profit will amount to 80% of the amount initially invested.

Example:

This time you expect that between 12:30 and 12:40 USD/CHF exchange rate will decrease. and you take out an intraday down option with the conditions stated for 300 USD. If the exchange rate at 12:40 is lower than the one at 12:30, your profit will amount to 300 x 1.80 = 540 USD and your net profit consists of the difference 540 - 300 = 240 USD.

Options that allow profit earnings from predicting the closing point at the end of the trading day, either above or below the selected level.

Example:

You make a prediction that the EUR/USD market will close at point X at the end of the trading day. You buy an option with the conditions stated for 100 USD. The profit margin P of the option will depend on the difference between X and the current price. If the EUR/USD exchange rate at 23:59:59 is greater than X, your profit will be 100 x P USD. The profit margin P of the option is always displayed on the page for profit calculations after you enter option parameters.

This type of option allows profit earnings by predicting that the currency exchange rate will reach both of two levels on opposite sides of the current exchange rate. The profit margin for this option is calculated according to the parameters established by a trader.

Example:

You make a prediction that before the closing of the current day, the EUR/USD exchange rate will reach both the level 1.4479 and 1.4570 and buy intraday “double touch” options for 350 USD. If at any moment during the stated period the EUR/USD exchange rate reaches both the levels 1.4470 and 1.4570, your profit will amount to 350 x P USD. In this case, P is the profit margin of the option which usually varies in degrees of ten, i.e., the net profit from this type of option may vary from 10 to 100 or even 1000% of the option price.

## Expiries

This type of option allows profit earnings from making a prediction that the currency exchange rate will increase during the time period between the current moment and close of trading on one of the following days. The profit margin for this option is fixed at 1.85, thus if successful, the net profit will amount to 85% of the amount initially invested.

Example:

You predict that in the following 4-day period the EUR/USD exchange rate will increase and buy a futures option for expiry up with the corresponding conditions for 40 USD. If the EUR/USD exchange rate at closing of the chosen day exceeds the amount at the time of option purchase, your profit will be 40* 1.85= 74 USD, the net profit will amount to 74 - 40 = 34 USD.

This type of option allows profit earnings from making a prediction that the currency exchange rate will decrease for the time period between the current moment and close of trading on one of the following days. The profit margin for this option is fixed at 1.85, thus if successful, the net profit will amount to 85% of the amount initially invested.

Example:

You predict that within the upcoming 19 days the EUR/CHF exchange rate will decrease and buy a futures option for expiry down with the corresponding conditions for 50 USD. If EUR/CHF exchange rate at the end of the chosen day is less than the amount at the time of option purchase, your profit will be 50 x 1.85= 92.5 USD, and the net profit will be 92.5 - 50 = 42.5 USD.

This type of option allows profits earning by making a prediction for the currency exchange rate to reach a certain level at any moment before the expiration of the option term. The profit margin for this option is calculated according to the parameters set by the trader.

Example:

You predict that within the upcoming 10 days the USD/CAD exchange rate will reach the level of 1.1235 and buy futures options for expiry ”one touch” with the corresponding conditions for 1000 USD. If at any moment of the stated period the USD/CAD exchange rate reaches the level 1.1235, your profit will amount to 1000 x P USD. In this case, P is the profit margin of the option which usually varies in degrees of ten, i.e., the net profit from this type of option may vary from 10 to 100 or even 1000% of the option price.

This type of option allows profits earning from predicting the closing of one of the following trading days at above or below the selected level. The profit margin for this option is calculated according to the parameters set by the trader.

Example:

You predict that in 5 days the EUR/GBP exchange rate will exceed the level of 0.6815 and buy futures options for closing with the corresponding conditions for 640 USD. If in 5 days when the market closes (23:59:59) the EUR/GBP exchange rate is greater than 0.6815, your profit will amount to 640 x P USD. In this case, P is the profit margin of the option which usually varies in degrees of ten, i.e., the net profit from this type of option may vary from 10 to 100 or even 1000% of the option price.

This type of option allows profit earnings by predicting that the currency exchange rate will not reach a certain level by the expiration of the option term. The profit margin for this option is calculated according to parameters set by the trader.

Example:

You predict that within the upcoming 2 days the AUD/USD exchange rate will not reach the level 0.8215. Thus you buy expiry “no-touch” options with the corresponding conditions for 350 USD. If at no time during the period stated the AUD/USD exchange rate reaches the level of 0.8215, your profit will amount to 350 x P USD. In this case, P is the profit margin of the option which usually varies in degrees of ten, i.e., the net profit from this type of option may vary from 10 to 100 or even 1000% of the option price.

This type of options allows earning profit by predicting that the currency exchange rate for a certain period will reach both of two levels on opposite sides of the current exchange rate. The profit margin for this option is calculated according to the parameters set by the trader.

Example:

You predict that within the upcoming 20 days the EUR/USD exchange rate will reach both the level of 1.4325 and 1.4589. Thus you buy futures options “double touch” for 350 USD. If at any moment during the period stated the EUR/USD exchange rate reaches both the selected levels, your profit will amount to 350 x P USD. In this case, P is the profit margin of the option which usually varies in degrees of ten, i.e., the net profit from this type of option may vary from 10 to 100 or even 1000% of the option price.

## Tick binary options

Tick binary options are a variation of classic binary options, but a bet on a currency pair rise or fall is made not in a given period of time as it happens in regular binary options trading, but for a definite number of ticks.

For instance, a tick options trader suggests that the EUR/USD quotes would be 40 ticks higher or lower than the opening price. If the projection is right, the trader gets profit; if it is wrong, the options value will be withdrawn from the trader's deposit.
