Alpari Launch Binary Options Trading
Alpari, the popular Forex broker, has just launched a new binary options service portfolio whose aim is to provide binary options trading services for the company customers. This new service portfolio consists of two binary options platforms, which will be offered to traders differently according to their geographical area.
The fact that Alpari added binary options into its service portfolio clearly shows us that binary options trading is getting more and more important. Several years ago, only stand alone and relatively small companies who offered binary options as their main product provided option trading. Everything has changed: even major Forex brokers have stepped into the emerging binary options market nowadays.
Alpari Implements Binary Options
As mentioned above, the popular Forex broker Alpari has finally included binary options into the list of services provided by the company. It also issued a press release stating the implementation of two different binary options platforms for its traders. Customers from Russia will be able to trade on the famous OptionTrader binary options platform, which was developed and licensed by Binary Products Limited. This platform enables its traders to deposit either USD or EUR, as well as to invest in diverse assets available like stocks, indices, commodities and Forex currency pairs. This OptionTrader platform also allows its Russian customers to purchase binary options contracts whose expiration times range from 3 minutes to an hour. Options with shorter expiration times such as 60 seconds are, unfortunately, not provided at the moment. Customers from the UK, on the other hand, will be trading on the binary options platform developed by SpotOption. This platform lets traders connect into their trading accounts from their web browsers directly: they do not have to download and install any application onto their PCs.
Traders can open accounts in many currencies like EUR, USD, JPY, AUD, GBP and CHF. No fees are required for opening contracts. Deposits are not charged regardless of size, either. The expiration times of binary options contracts are various: 60 minutes, 2 minutes, 15 minutes, 1 week or up to one year.
Traders are also allowed to choose weekly or yearly expiration times. This allows them to invest more seriously, rather than just betting randomly and depending on luck or chance. This fact shows that Alpari is doing the role of a real financial service provider, not just a simple financial betting provider.
Alpari is among the biggest forex and CFD brokers on the market today. It is currently the owner of many online trading brands, which are specialized on each different market like the UK, Europe, Russia, Asia, etc. Until now, Alpari is only offering traditional FX and CFD trading services. The company, however, has already shown hints that it would implement binary options in early 2013.
Alpari and all of its services in the UK are official licensed and authorized by the Financial Conduct Authoridy (FCA). This makes Alpari one of the very few forex and binary options who really own a real UK financial trading license.
