Binary Options Brokers Reviews – How Ours Are Different

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 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. 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 – 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.

  • Mark Webber

    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 & does not have investors interests at heart.

  • Jules

    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 to also join and trade. None of them interested. All of a sudden my broker could only call twice a week and had other commitments on the other 3 days. Several times he was sick and out of contact for a week or so. Training has trickled away to nothing and now I am having trouble with them processing my first withdrawal. Has anyone made successful withdrawals from their account with AlldayOption?

    • Bennett parker

      I started working with 24Option in 2016. The first deposit of 1,250 dollars and in two weeks made some profits. Then there was a lost on the gold and shares of Boeing. Manager John said that it is necessary to top up to restore the deposit. I invested another 15,000 and then another 17,500. I should have already understood that everything was already suspicious, but I believed it. After that, for three days my balance was drained and the manager and even support stopped responding and I could not login to the account. After two month i logged to the account and there was a balance of $ 78,I posted on few sites about a month ago asking about whether people had any success in getting their money back through a company. I was really anxious about it and did a lot of research. I found that there are a few companies / law firms that offer the service of claiming back from binary. I came across this company that give some interesting guidelines and assistance in recovering my lost profit and investment capital from my broker,their service was simpler than i thought,I was warned that some of these companies / firms are not legitimate. you can contact them via email at, They will be of great assistance in helping you recover your investment and profit from your brokers

    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 on phone. We exchanged emails and phone calls just a few minutes before I made the deposit of $2,000.00, but the very moment I made the deposit, Sebastian ignored all my calls and emails for 2 weeks. I was only able to get him on the phone when I chose an option from their prompt that I needed help making a deposit. At this time, he claimed he was Juan Cortez and Sebastian was not in office. He hung up on my face while yelling that "Sebastian is a busy man and doesn’t have time for your bullshit". It was at this moment I realized all the tricks he has been playing all along. He hardly responded to my email and preferred to talk over the phone. One time I called him and had him on speaker phone because I was multitasking, he claimed he couldn’t hear me but kept saying "no" when I asked if he could hear. My guess is he thought I was recording the conversation. When you call, you can hear the same recorded background noise giving you an illusion that he is in a financial services environment. Do not fall for this.

    It should also be noted that they tell you that you can withdraw your money anytime you want, but this is very false. Any attempt to do this will always give you an error in Spanish. It has been almost a year and I still cannot get a refund of my money. I can’t even get them on the phone. you get put on hold for 3 minutes and the call hangs up.

    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 go further. This promise lead me to join. However after a few days of researching I decided not to proceed and I informed the account manager by over the weekend by email that I wanted to leave. He called early this morning ie Monday 7th Nov16 at around 8am
    a bit annoyed sounding that I had considered leaving. But his attitude and tone of voice left me more sure that I needed to leave. By 11am I wrote another email informing him (Adam Malina) that I decided to leave. By 1pm it occurred to me that I would need to go into their website to make the withdrawal request. But when I entered ie logged in I saw that my balance had changed from $255 to $249.75, I immediately made the request but at the same time wanted to know why it had changed. I contacted their ‘livechat’. A Peter Haris responded. He said that there was trading activity. I was shocked as I had not entered their website since the day I had uploaded my documents. I also knew that their sales agent was made fully aware that I had not instructed her about any intention to start any auto-trading, besides as I was completely new to the industry they were well aware that I needed training first, and as such there was no instruction from me that I had wanted to use the auto-trading function without my knowledge or permission. I spoke to their general Manager called ‘Dan’ but he was not wanting to listen either. They were trying to suggest that I must have instructed the Gemini software company , that through Gemini software my auto-trading had been instructed. This is a complete lie as the advert which originally arrived into my email showed only a video claiming that Gemini was the magic software however once I sent my registration details, it was not Gemini staff who called nor did the form lead me to Gemini’s web page, nor did they they send me any registration details eg Login ID nor password or request docs. It was Binary Online who did all this so the legal contract is wirth Binary Online for which I had very little choice because the money went to their website. Gemini also had nothing to do with providing me with a trading platform, so the website and software responsible for starting and running ‘auto-trades’ would have been from BinaryOnline. Yet their staff tried to argue that it must have been Gemini. They also tried pulling off the excuse that there was a ‘default setting’ and that was under my control. Rubbish !, I did not get shown how to do ‘auto-trades’ let alone how to set up a ‘default’ auto-trading. When I pointed out that the trades appeared only appeared after I wanted a withdrawal the guy Peter Haris started claiming that it can be preset to start on a certain day. But this is inconsistent with my intentions of pulling out all the way from the day I spoke to their sales agent called ‘Jade Winters’, who knew that I wasn’t expected to make any decision before speaking to the senior expert ie Adam Malina. So basically they are fraudulently levying me costs of auto-trading which I never instructed let alone action myself in their website esp on the day I wanted to pullout my money.

  • nayan

    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

    • nayan

      I would like this to go viral on you tube, Facebook, Twitter and also every site of Banc de binary as they are chests and liars who risk people’s lives for their own joy

  • Mike

    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 transaction fees) in my bank account, second one $501(minus transaction fees)
    on my credit card, and third one was $3000 to my bank.

    Everything looked nice. Roger Wilson sugested me to participate in NFP trade. I had to deposit additional
    to get $10000 at my account. I did that.
    Roger made NFP trading on 03/06/16. Here is a screenshot
    As a result of that I’ve lost all my money.
    Does it a professional trade? It seems to me it is not. It looks like a theft.
    Furthermore, at the same time and the same NFP I’ve got money from two other brokers.
    I had canceled to trade with Roger Wilson and BinaryBook.
    That is my sad story with BinaryBook.

    Hi Does anyone have any opinion on Delta Capital Markets?

  • Davena

    All this binaries option are scambrokerz avoid investing with any of them no matter what , I hope everyone will get the highlights

  • Zara

    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 such and lick from us. Frauds. Cheaters and lies are they the brokers in this industry. Mind it please before u Invest.

    • Daniel

      I feel like this is happening to me. Today the price of oil was supposed to have declined. It went up and I lost 2360 dollars. I’m not happy with this group.

      • Daniel

        Just called 365 Binary Options and got hold of James Collins, the broker, he said he knew what happened and was doing “damage control” are they not professionals?

  • Daniel

    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 then 24 hours the money was in my bank account.

  • Michael Titler

    I do not see the broker I currently use, which is MaxOptions ( 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 as if they are regulated. I feel just as safe keeping my money with MaxOptions as I do with 24Option or even GOption that are both regulated and brokers I have used. This is my test if a company is reliable and I have lost a few hundred dollars using other brands, believe me, we have all felt the burn! I typically deposit a base amount of $300-500. Before making any trades, I repeat, before making any trades, I submit all the required documentation per terms and services of the broker, so I can receive my winnings by withdrawal. Only after I submit my documentation, I make two days of trading, but nothing more than $50-75 each day. Regardless if I win or lose, on the third day I make a withdrawal request for $100. Within their given time frame, I dunno, anywhere between 3-7 days, I wait to receive my money. When I receive my money I stick to my guns. This is why I have stayed with 24Option and more importantly why I have stayed with a smaller broker like MaxOptions.

    Mayfair Options is a SCAM

    I cant log on to their website any more, no one answers the phone lines and no emails are going through to them.
    Has anyone had the same experience?

  • Sophie Barnes

    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.

  • Julie

    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?

  • John Warnock

    I think that I have been scammed by a Option trader called Opticrown,I have tried to withdraw my money,but could not get into my account,many calls to their help line gave me no help.When someone called “John” called me back he said that there had been a problem with the Internet,my account had £600 added to it,I had not made a trade and he said that the robot was responsible, what robot, I did not pay for the “fantastic system”, he told me that I had got it for free!However my free system has not made another trade,it is all a scam,I have tried to withdraw my money again,but I am not very hopeful.
    Has anybody else had dealings with this mob?

  • trev

  • martin carlson

    Spotfn are crooks! On 9/10/14, I had $33,285 in my account and the next morning I only had $347 in my account and there is no trading history between. Ever since then, I have been unable to talk to a knowledgeable person about this; I can’t get any help or answers period.

  • michael stokes

    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!!!
