Nadex is different from any binary options broker you have seen before. The binary options available for trading on Nadex are priced differently than the European brokers you may have reviewed before.
The returns on a binary option at Nadex ranges from 1% to 9,970%. Each binary option has a purchase price of $1 – $100. Look at the screenshot below, and you will see how the bid/ask prices are displayed.
In the picture above the Euro is trading at 1.1272.
I can buy the 1.1280 option (out of the money) for $49.25, and it will go up to $100 if the Euro moves about 1.1280, giving me a profit of 101%.
I can buy the 1.1260 option (in the money) for $75, at it will go up to $100 if the Euro stays about 1.1260 at expiration, giving me a 33% profit.
Additionally, the bid/ask price is constantly changing, so I can place a limit order to try and get a better price. Also, I do not need to wait for the option to expire. I can sell the option right away at the current market price. Assets Available Include: Forex Pairs, Market Indexes, Metals, Energy, Agriculture & Special Events (Jobless Claims)
The minimum trade size is one contract, which it technically as low as $1.
The minimum initial deposit to fund you account is $250. Nadex charges $1 commissions per contract, with a limit of $50 per trade. You can fund your account with a Debit Card, ACH Transfer, or Bank Wire. Withdrawals are either ACH or Wire. We actually tested out their ACH withdrawal process, and received our money then next day. This is the major benefit in dealing with a legal binary options exchange.
Nadex is currently offering new traders a “Fee Holiday” bonus. Depending on your initial deposit you will have no commissions for 3 – 15 days.
We chose to start trading with $500, so we got 6 days of no fees, see details.
American CFTC Regulated
When reviewing the various binary options brokers, you will not find any broker today that is regulated by the CFTC except Nadex.
Almost all the brokers that you heard about are located offshore, and are not legally accepting American traders. We have received many complaints from people that use offshore brokers, because there is no regulatory authority overseeing them. This is the main reason why Nadex is the fastest growing binary options exchange in America.
Nadex is regulated by the CFTC. They are a subsidiary of the IG Group, a global brokerage firm.
