Binary options trading has never been this easy

Is IQ Option a Scam?

IQ Option haven’t raised any Scam suspicions so far. In fact it’s a transparent brokerage, operated by IQ Option Europe Ltd., a company regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), under License number 247/14. The company who operates the website is also easily found in their “Contact Us” section so I guess there’s no reason to be worried. In addition, the broker has maintained a relatively high and stable stream of traffic to their domains: IQoption.com and eu.iqoption.com. This means that the traders are satisfied and the company is healthy with a good reputation.

Complaints

We found a list of complaining clients on pissedconsumer.com and the complaints are increasing gradually. Most users complain regarding return percentage changes during volatile markets, some complaint about platform freeze or expiry strike being different then the market price. We also found many complaints regarding withdrawals and blocked accounts and untrue quotes. Some people compared the IQ Option charts to MetaTrader but if you look carefully, they failed to notice that the IQ Option charts and MetaTrader where not using the same time interval (in some cases). On the other hand, we also found many satisfied people claiming they had no issues with their withdrawals. In regards to price delays and price issues, you may feel relieved to hear that CySec recently withdrew a fine that was issued for “not executing orders the best possible way for their clients”. This means that their platform is working in accordance with CySec rules and not cheating the clients. Finally, there are complaints regarding customer service, however, users must understand that IQ Option has limited live customer service.

RISK WARNING: YOUR CAPITAL MIGHT BE AT RISK

Trading Platform

IQ Option uses its own trading platform, a fresh change from the SpotOption platform which is used by almost all the major broker sites, including Banc de Binary, and GOptions. Unlike some competitor sites, the possibility of inadvertently setting the wrong investment is not possible. The platform has many unique features, which are specially designed to make it simple and easy to use. In order to test the platform with a beginner, we asked our secretary if she could master the platform. Our secretary does not have any previous experience with binary options. We gave her 15 minutes to learn, after which we came back to check the situation. When we came back, she told us that 15 minutes was more than sufficient. She was very familiar with all the main features after a couple of minutes. She also told us that she had never been interested in investing

Trading Amounts

The minimum investment of $1 per trade is the lowest in the industry. This makes it possible to start investing, with real money. As the minimum investment is so low, I recommend opening a real money account from the beginning. The maximum investment of $5,000 per trade is sufficient even for “high-roller” investors who are willing to take big risks in order to obtain high yields. For example, by setting a number of $5,000 trades in a row, you can raise the stakes as high as you want.
