Binary Options Brokers Reviews – How Ours Are Different

This page lists links to trader based reviews and ratings of binary options brokers. At the bottom of this page you can find on-going discussion about all sorts of brokers.

These reviews and ratings should serve as a guide to the reputation and character of the brokers you are considering trading binaries with. Once you find a broker or two you are comfortable with their reputation, you can compare them to find out which one meets your needs the best.

“Trading Binary Options involves substantial risk and may lead to loss of all invested capital”

Real Trader Comments and Ratings

Keep in mind people are much more likely to leave a negative review than a positive one.

Also keep in mind that any of the overly positive or overly negative reviews could be competitors or the brokers marketing team themselves. We try and stay on top of comments but the spammers are relentless. Please do your own due diligence before investing any money. Read the comments with a critical eye and decide for yourself.

We want to help you find the best place to trade binary options. We have spent hundreds of hours researching trading binary options and the different brokers. We are compiling this information to build out this directory of top binary options brokers of 2012. Find the best place to trade binary options online right now.

Where To Trade Binary Options – Best Rated 2017

Help build out our trader reviews. Our site is growing nicely now and many traders are beginning to add their reviews every day. They are also posting it to their facebook wall and telling others about it too.

Binary options trading is the current ‘wild west’ of the financial world. Binary options trading sites offer huge returns fast in exchange for a substantial risk. You can make more money in 60 seconds than many people make all day if you are willing to take a risk. Select a legit binary broker from our top list above and create your account. Deposit what you are willing to risk and start trading binary options for money.

Take the negative reviews and ratings with a grain of salt. People will leave negative reviews all day long. Positive reviews are much rarer to come by. Remember the ratings and comments are left by traders and do not reflect our opinions, beliefs or endorsements.

Negative Ratings Are Common – people in general are way more likely to leave a negative review than a positive one. My wife is prime example of this as after a horrible crab legs dinner the last night of our beach vacation, all she could wait to do was to get online and leave a negative review about how bad the crab legs were and how the experience totally sucked. Earlier in the week when we had an amazing dinner, there was no mention of getting on tripadvisor.com and telling everyone how good the foot was. It is the same mindset with binary options brokers.

What To Look For – What Is Important?

Here are the things that most traders find important when looking for the right place to trade binary options. Your needs may vary and you can take a closer look in our binary options broker comparison chart.

  • Reputation is Everything – Reputation is more important than any sort of regulatory seal of approval. There are un-reputable sites that claim regulation and very reputable brokers who are un-regulated
  • Payouts are Fast and Consistent – Timely withdrawals with history is important in determining the legitimacy of site. Never deposit at a site that has a history of bad payouts.
  • Returns are Competitive – Why risk the same amount of money with a smaller return? Find two brokers you like and compare their returns for the same trade. Go with the one with the highest return.
  • Type(s) Of Binary Options Available That You Want To Trade – If you want to trade sixty second options then AnyOption will not work for you (try TradeRush or Banc De Binary). Or maybe you want other common types of binary options like the range options, one touch or other more exotic style of binary option then you will need to find a broker that offers that type of trade. The common ‘up-down’ binary option choice is available at all brokers.
  • Types of Assets – Some binary trading sites offer more assets to trade than others. If there is a particular stock you want to trade or if you want to trade commodities like gold, silver and oil then you need to find a broker with the asset you want.
  • Personal Account Manager Or Not – Do you want someone to walk you through your trades? Do you just want someone to discuss your trades with? Some binary trading sites, ex 24option, have very active personal account managers. You get an account manager who will trade with you every step of the way. Newbie or not. Other sites are less focused on building an account manager relationship with you.

To learn more about the recommended brokers, read the binary options broker reviews or compare binary options brokers with our broker comparison table.

Trading Platforms

There are only four binary trading platforms available today. Virtually all of the brokers white list from the same small group of platform providers. There are well over 100 different brokers white-listing the trading platforms. You can learn more about the binary option trading platforms available and find our recommended brokers for each platform.

Avoid Binary Option Scam Sites

Scams happen in all business and binary options are no different. Actually, they are different in that there are way more scams in the financial world than there are many other industries.

You have to trade at a trustworthy, legit and safe binary options broker. Most importantly is that they are reputable and that they pay out consistently!

We keep up to date with the binary options brokers and the different binary options trading communities. When we come across news or information of note about a particular binary broker, we will update our review timeline with a link so you can go learn more yourself. If things turn too bad, the broker is added to our binary options blacklist.

About BinaryOptionsBlacklist.com – Our Top Lists & Broker Trading Guides

The blacklist was launched in April of 2012. I was fed up by seeing all the traders get scammed by fraud brokers that were nothing more than bucket shops. You could deposit your money but making a profit and withdrawing was not really an option. I wanted to expose those brokers and list the ‘good’ ones.

You are smart enough to know a fake review from a real one when you read it. That is why our binary options reviews are different.

Sure, we focus on our choices of the best binary options trading sites online and for full disclosure you should know that it is quite possible that we earn advertising dollars for creating and maintaining this site. We are not a guide on how binary options work, or a resource for binary strategies that win. There are a small but growing list of quality resources like that already available.

However, there are few legitimate binary options broker review and rating sites on the market. We created this site to list the good and the bad about the binary options brokers out there. You can see our lists of best binary options brokers and you can see our binary options blacklist which is made up of brokers that we wouldn’t deposit a dime of our own money.

Let’s be honest, most reviews aren’t worth the page they are written on. Besides, no one reads much of it anyway. Hell I’d be fairly surprised if you are even reading this! People scan web pages, not read them. Our reviews reflect that. Lists, lots and lots of lists. Factual lists, comparison lists, and timeline link lists.

List of Binary Options Brokers & Reviews

Broker Reviews & Time Lines with Links

We provide a few screen shots and the logo so you can get a feel for the site. Then, instead of rambling on about the platform, we simply have a list of links to the most important information we have found in our research sorted by date. We list return rates, ranges, what you can trade, how you can trade, company info, deposit minimums, expiry times available and trading details.

All the important stuff.

Then, we maintain a constantly updated timeline of links specific to that broker with the latest info you want to know. At the bottom of the reviews are where the player driven ratings, comments and reviews take place. We uncensor our player reviews other than the obvious spam, shill or if someone posts something illegal or whatever. Real reviews stay, good or bad.

What you will find for each broker in our reviews:
1. Min Deposit
2. Min Trade
3. Types of Options Available (up/down, range, touch/no-touch/, exotic options)
4. Expiry times available (specifically 60 second, 15 min, 30 min & other popular expiry times at that broker)
5. Payout %’s (the ranges)
6. Underlying assets available to trade
7. An on-going timeline of links to news, info and details for each broker.
8. Real broker ratings for the binary options brokers that are un-biased and from actual traders.

Top Overall Rated Binary Options Brokers

We keep an active top 10 list here.

Note From Editor

If we do not have a broker listed you want to review (complain, warn others) then please leave your negative comments on our SCAMS ALERTS and RESEARCH page. That will get the most eyes on your initial complaint. It will also prod us to create a review page for the broker in question so others can leave their experiences. If we already list the broker, feel free to leave a comment and rating on their existing page already.

WMOptions was the second binary trader i tried. The first, Banc de Binary was useless, no assistance as promised so withdrew my funds. Then tried WMO only to loose the lot on bad advise on trades. Biggest mistake was putting so much on a trade instead of a limited amount. Anyway, lost my money & bonus that i was given. The broker i was allocated, Jacob clearly does not know what he is doing & put me into trades that lost. I am now with a third company & very happy & making money. In short WMO is reckless &… Read more »

I have been reading a lot lately about diffrent brokers online and encountered a platform called Trader VC
Has anyone heard of it?

Looking at their website, and some of their requirements I think this company are a scam. They want colour copies of passport or other id – illegal to send colour copies – from the UK at least. Do you know why? because they will use them for identity theft purposes. So alarm bells should ring. On top they claim to offer CFD trading, but their product is binaries – completely different financial instruments! This is a no go area.

hey ann
actually I am what you can call a starting investor and after a lot of positive feedback I have heard about trader vc I decided to start invest with them and I am really pleased with the broker
I was able to make a withdrawl and the service is great
I highly recommend it
but I suggest you do your research online just like I did

couldnt agree more
my mom has retired and has a lot of spare time on her hands
so she decided to invest her money and after an online research and recommendations we got from friends we decided to go with trader vc especially because of the small deposits and low returns since it gives her more safety when handling her money

Trader vc is a great platform but only as a side platform
its very limited but that makes it a “safe” broker to invest with as a starting investor
to my opinion at least

george but isn’t it better to invest with a broker that gives you low returns and a ense of safety?

but high rollers probably won’t
it is a matter of how much you ‘like risk’
most people won’t take big risks with their money especially in this area of investing

or as an insurance for there money
high rollers know how to divide their money

AlldayOption Has anyone had problems making a withdrawal from AlldayOption? When I first joined, the broker would call from London 3 or 4 times a week and speak to me – including training sessions of over 1/2 hour a couple of times a week. Great personal service and it all made sense. Then the Brexit and Donald Trump got elected and the currency pairs were too volatile to trade with a decent chance of success. Had a few trades in stocks – Apple being the most successful trade. However, mid November my broker was wanting me to sign up friends… Read more »

BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE!!!!!!! Empire Option is a SCAM targeting people in North America. Sometime last year, I opened an account and made the minimum deposit. I used their so-called robot and in a 3 minutes, I lost all my money. I got a call from one Sebastian promising that if I made a deposit of $2,000.00 he could trade manually with me over the phone and we could make 70% in profit. I gave it some thought and couldn’t find any negative review about Empire Option online. I gave in to his offer after several weeks of him calling me… Read more »

Beware of BinaryOnline Brokers, here is how they try to cost you: It started when I received one of those unsolicited email adverts which claimed to show how one can make money from home on a PC only. So I read it and got interested however I noticed that it lead me directly to a different company’s website to the one on the advert. After a while we get a call and the sales agent tries to sell us the idea of how good their company is etc but that I can withdraw my funds if I didn’t want to… Read more »

Banc de binary are full of empty promises and no responsibility towards losses incurred by them’ in fact they are so unsure of trade that they can’t guarantee anything and make you sign an indemnity form to cover themselves because they gamble with your money at your expense and if you winning- they want more to make you bankrupt because when you loose – they don’t even try assisting you further

There is my experience with BinaryBook. I have started with BinaryBook more than 6 month ago. I decided to try Tauribot robot which recommended BinaryBook as a broker. I began from $501 and $500 bonus. I didn’t want the bonus, but Roger Wilson (I think it is not a real name) said that it will not a problem to withdraw my deposit. He was my broker. He traded very well and I deposited $10000 additional. And I had $15992.59 after one month. I started a withdrawal and got an approval on third day. I’ve got the first part $10000 (minus… Read more »

Hai every one. I am a victim of the scam of binary options. I swear to all here that this a fraud way of trading and will only cheat the investors. 365 binary option is a fraud platform. They simply lie and cheat all. Mr. James Collins, Jack Stephen and David are the three fraud and cheat brokers who looted my money in 365 binary options. Com. So my personal advice to all is to avoid this trading manner. Binary options is a gambling and will loose all our money. They all are professional cheaters in a sense. They will… Read more »

Being a new user I did not know what to expect when I first signed up. I was reached out to by a account manager who took me step by step to explain how the platform works and how to trade. He then put me on an lesson plan where he informed me how to make educated decisions on the trades that I was making, and even gave me access to the e-book which had a lot of useful information. I waited to write this review until I received my first payout which I received with no problems in less… Read more »

I do not see the broker I currently use, which is MaxOptions (www.maxoptions.com). I have found them to be just as legitimate as the brokers mentioned in your main reviews. Nor have I found a page to offer praise. I am quick to give negative feedback too but want to offer some praise to this smaller group that brokers trades. The reason I have stuck with them is because of the relationship I established with the counseling I am getting on making trades and the trust I feel with my money. They are an agency working toward regulation and behave… Read more »

Me & my partner recently opened up an account with world wide options, i used to trade myself but now i have decided that a managed account works far better. I am seeing great returns on my investment. I feel they are far more helpful & the returns are better than when i had an account with one of these other well known binary option companies.

I’m new to this and wondered if you have any info on Regal Options. They look legit to me…

Also, they only return payouts on your original deposit type, ie- credit card. I don’t understand how that works to get cash. If you deposited $250 from a CC, then requested 10k payout to that card, how do you get the money into your bank account?

You will probably never publish this. Binary options are fatally flawed. Even if you are following a gold seam, the fact that your “trade” closes at a fixed time means that you have NO CONTROL after entering the position. Any trend, up or down, no matter how strong, has correctional counter movements, and binary does not understand this. Your chosen “trade” may have a great day, but minute by minute??? I have been seriously deceived by BdB, and am just praying for an escape with my investment. NOT TOO CONFIDENT!!!
