Binary options trading, while extremely popular, is still relatively new and undiscovered territory when compared to daily trading volume in stocks, currencies, and conventional options. Plus, it is risky. This is one of the reasons it’s difficult to find dependable, high-quality US binary options brokers. If you are looking for binary options platforms in US borders then you are going to be sorely out of luck with the exception of Nadex. The purpose of this page is to maintain an updated list of the most reputable brokers catering to U.S. traders. If you’re new to binary options, we strongly recommend setting up an account at one or more of the sites listed below.

Marketsworld – 3/6/2017 – MW remains one of our favorite long time binary option brokers and moved top the top of our lists.

BinaryMate added 11/16/16 – Risky – But entertaining. I wouldn’t call this a broker you’ll ‘invest’ in so much as one you will gamble at and have some fun. Why? Because they have hot ‘account managers’ that trade via live webcam. Seriously. Here is Binarymate feedback and reviews for this broker now.

BOL Financial added 8/15/16 – The team at BetOnline financial comes from the background of sportsbetting and online casino action. They are the polar opposite of Nadex in terms of the binary options trading. However, they have a positive reputation as a fair, honest and legit online casino (source). When you win, you will get paid. I am not going to beat around the bush here, if you are just wanting to gamble a little bit and see if you can get lucky on a few trades then I really like BOL financial. If you are doing this as a part time job then you better get exceptional at Nadex trading and be very good.

NADEX – the CFTC regulates this binary option exchange. You also only pay a fee per trade to the exchange. Unlike other brokers where they take the opposite end of the trade. Update on 8/26/2016 – the minimum investment is now $250 instead of $100. Check them out and leave your thoughts in our listing!
New TechFinancials platform broker that serves US clients – Tradorax – Reviews / ratings wanted.

Finpari added December 2015 – *Removed 11/28/2016. Finpari has pulled out of the USA and CA due to tightening regulations. Quality USA friendly broker based in Scotland with the ever popular SpotOption trading platform.

Not all brokers are created equal. Among those that cater to U.S. binary options traders, you’ll find a variety of features, promotions, payouts, and “small” amenities like rebates on losing trades. We’ve tested several brokers, and have found the following to offer the level of service, features (including top payouts), and ease-of-use we enjoy.

Learn more about US Friendly Brokers

  • MarketsWorld -MarketsWorld is quietly becoming one of the best all around binary options brokers. Real regulation by a legit governing body, fair binary options and smooth deposits and payouts.
  • Nadex – The one USA regulated binary option broker that is based in the USA. NADEX only accepts traders from the US. They are regulated by the CFTC. They have quickly became one of our favorite brokers as they are working to turn the industry around. They do not take the other side of your trade. Instead, they make their money on a fee for each trade whether you buy or sell.
  • BOL Financial – My one choice for true ‘gamblers’. Have fun, win a trade and get paid. This isn’t where you invest your savings. But this is where you try to turn a hundred bucks into $500 real quick. And the cool thing is… if you do you’ll get paid (don’t take a bonus). They are legit. They are one of the highest rated sportsbooks and online casinos for US gamblers for going on a decade.

Binary Option Brokers Headquartered In The US – 2017

Earlier, we mentioned that nearly all US-friendly binary options brokers are headquartered outside the U.S. To that end, many of the brokers mentioned in the above list operate from Cyprus or the UK.

We’ve only found one that actually maintain their headquarters within U.S. borders: Nadex.com. Nadex.com is based in Chicago. They offer a web-based trading platform through which you can trade numerous indices (U.S., Korea, Germany, etc.), several currency contracts, and a wide range of commodities. The average return on in-the-money trades is currently 75%. You can request access to a $25,000 demo account to practice before placing your own capital at risk.

Don’t underestimate the importance of choosing the right binary broker. The payouts, promotions, and other features will play an important role in your long-term profitability. We recommend that you get started by creating an account at three or four of US binary options brokers we’ve profiled above.

Recognized by the CBOE as a legitimate way to trade options, binary option trading has become one of the fastest-growing ways to participate in the exchange markets. No longer are you forced to buy and hold shares of a particular stock. No longer are you obligated to devote large sums of capital to purchasing an asset you hope will rise in value. Trading binary options gives you an opportunity to make an “all or nothing” wager on whether a broad market moves up or down. Even better, you can do so without placing significant capital at risk.

Binary Options Regulation: What Rules Govern Them?

To understand the regulatory environment in which binary options trading exists, it’s important to be familiar with how they differ from traditional options. A conventional futures contract is an agreement to buy or sell an underlying asset at a specific price. The trader essentially forecasts the price the asset will reach. As its spot price moves up or down, additional contracts can be bought or sold.

Online binary options trading works differently. It’s much simpler. You pick an asset, strike price, expiration date and time, and decide whether you think the spot price will end up above or below the strike. If you choose correctly, you win the trade. Choose incorrectly, and you lose. You don’t own the asset. Instead, you are merely betting on the movement of the asset’s price, or the broader market represented by it.

With this in mind, binary options can be regulated in one of two ways. First, they can be regulated as financial instruments, which allows them to be bought and sold in countries where online gambling may be prohibited. Alternatively, they can be regulated as fixed-odds betting. Think of the US regulated sites like Nadex where they are officially the North American Derivatives Exchange which is fully regulated but offers a completely different type of trading experience than the fun, fast binary option trades we are all doing right now. This is because the binary option contract offers the trader an “either or” (up or down, win or lose) outcome. The risk and potential return are known upfront.

The U.S. regulatory environment has been unfriendly to online gambling over the past decade, and particularly so during the last few years. There are signs that this may change in the near future. However, most US-friendly binary trading sites have chosen to headquarter their operations outside the U.S. in countries such as Cyprus. Today, in 2016 from the traders seat there is nothing illegal about trading binary options from the USA as long as the state and local governments do not prohibit it.

  • Bridgette cOOKE

    Finally I have been able to retrieve all my lost funds of about 50k, which I never believed I would get again from an unregulated broker who stocked my trading capital for over 3 months now, and denied me access to my trading account. I’m so glad that I have gotten back all my funds back without stress, All thanks to my neighbor who introduced me to a certified binary option recovery expert. Do you have funds that you wish to withdraw from your account, is your Broker manager asking you to make more deposit before you can place a withdrawal, are you confused and you don’t know how to go about it, kindly contact me at bridgette001cooke@gmail.com and I will guide you on steps to take and get all your lost funds back in just few days.

      I had one experience with them, I opened an account with’em and I had a rude account manager, telling me that my account is too small to be taken care off, 250$ deposit is not enough for him to help me bcz he makes thousands on bigger accounts. He said word by word: do you want me to help you for free?
      He said : you can go ahead and withdraw you money, it’s true that it was refunded quickly to my debit card, but that’s the kind of experience you would go through if you have a small account.

    • Pagani

      I have they pretty cool, I signed up for that broker with my signal company and they pretty good. I managed to get my first withdrawal and it’s solid! Also if you participate in the training session, they trained me very well! I don’t see nothing wrong with the broker.

  • Martin

    Has anyone had any experience with Bank of Options (bankofoptions.com)? I’ve recently been trading with this broker and they’ve actually made me money. However, I’m having challenges with them not honoring my withdrawal requests. I accepted no "bonus" or leverage money. All the funds in my account are mine. Please advise anyone. Thanks.

  • GeorgeOrwell

    I am reluctant to try Binary Options as number one: I do not think I will get a 1099 as a US trader, number two, it seems too much like gambling, and number three, I am not sure I would get the hang of it very well.

    • James McGinnis

      They, Ivory options are scam.. and they manipulate your trades.Binary trading is not easy and very risky and takes alot of knowledge and disipline when trading. Not a get rich thing, or you will lose all. Just do a trade or so a day that is a known winner, but with a reputable binary options broker. Follow the 10% trade rule.

  • alison paddon-hicks

    Hi,

    Has anyone heard of Bank of Options or Ivory Options who are advertising to manage Binary Options Accounts. Is this a scam? Ive never invested in Stocks & Shares and stumbled across and adult promising risk free insured investing and I’m sceptical. Any advice very welcome – urgently! Many Thanks in Advance.

    • Jaja

      Ivory options is a complete scam they didthe same thing to me wanting me to deposit more and they did not give me my profits when i tried to withdraw they are thieves

  • randy

    Anyone have any experience with Stewart Green and Smartprofits ?? thx

  • Johnathan P.

    Marketsworld has developed an iOS application. It really is a great broker, however they just don’t offer as many types of trades. The only ones they have are High/Low.

    I trade with them all of the time though and they are very professional and payout in decent time.

  • Cherie

    For newcomers from the US who wants to trade with Boss Capital,
    Unfortunately, they aren’t accepting any new traders from the U.S because of current regulations or they are getting regulated. So this leaves a dilemma for me and others who are from the U.S and are looking to start off building some trading experience. However, it seem like there is a huge crackdown on these websites from the CTFC or some other U.S federal trade gov agency. Anyhow, is there any other binary option trading website that U.S newbie traders can go too?

    • Caffeine

      Goptions and PorterFinance and CherryTrade are the leading brokers that accept US traders today. Also NADEX if you want a USA regulated site. MarketsWorld is good as well and uses a seperate platform.

      • Caffeine

        Updating this for our 2016 visitors. Stick with Marketsworld for sure and currently consider new broker called Finpari. Will update as the year progresses.

        • Ken

          Please let me know how Finpari is going for you.

          • Donna

            I’d like to know how Finpari is going for everyone too.

            • Ron

              Finpari is scam the timer moves in there favor slippage when you place put or call constant haste to put more money in account they say they will match etc.

              • oasislv

                everybody has trades move against them, lol

        • Still looking

          I attempted to open an account with Finpari, but my bank declined the deposit charge. Good thing too because 2 minutes later, two other charges were attempted on my card….one from Arizona in the US and another from China. Not sure if their site is unsecure or what, but was a red flag for me.

      That is too bad, because they were the only ones that I found to be trust worthy and did not manipulate my trades.
      The have some honest people and brokers working for them that were helpful. I just found them to lat and didn;t have the funds to trade after loosing on the other UK option houses.

  • Wayne

    !!! FRAUD ALERT!!!!!!<<>>

    Citrades is a scam! Straight Fraudulent shady outfit! They have a couple of US rejects over there to handle their US customers..one
    from Brooklyn NY and another one from California…allegedly. I started my account with $2500 they gave
    me a $4000 bonus. So I had $6500 to trade. It took me 2 weeks to get the account to $33k.
    Thew pressed me to send them more money for their “VIP” account by adding another $50k to the account. I played along telling them I would only do $30k contingent upon them allowing me to withdraw $5k now, even tho I hadn’t fulfilled the trading requirement from the bonus I took to allow me to make withdrawals. They agreed and they actually sent me $5300 back. After that they froze my account so I couldn’t trade and
    kept pressing me about the $30k I was supposed to send them. I told them I’m not sending that until I feel more comfortable with them..they said OK and took the freeze off and I hung up with them. Right after I hung up…they began to churn and burn the account up!! The account balance went from $25k to $400 in a few days..and there was nothing I could do to stop it. Couldn’t get anyone on the phone during this time..no one answered my emails..or returned my phone calls. The only thing good is I did get my money back plus $2800….the bad news is they burned up all my other profits!!! If you see or are referred to CiTrades….RUN!!!!!!

    • Landon

      Wayne, thanks for the info. Sorry to hear they scammed you. What I’m more interested in is how you were able to grow your account to $33k! That’s quite a success rate! Please tell us your “system” you used! Thanks!

    • Adnane

      That’s true. I had the same experience with Citrades around the same timing. They froze my account, the blocked me from chatting or calling, they took my money and never replied to my requests.

      Hi Ian..

      I had a big problem withdrawing all my money (400.00) after 3 months of aggravation and frustration. I had my attorney friend write a nasty gram and mysteriously my funds suddenly showed up in my bank account 3 days later. Do not trust banc de binary at all. You need to be diligent & threaten them with legal action or nothing will happen.
