Anyoption ReviewNovember 20, 2013
Anyoption is one of the first binary options brokers to get on the scene and offer a variety of assets to trade from as well as 60 second options, Bitcoin, and other interesting features such as binary live, dynamic return, and binary 0-100. Furthermore, Anyoption has recently received an official broker license from CySec, which stands for the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission.
They have also obtained EU MiFID licensing which authorizes it to provide investment and trading services in accordance to governing European Union laws and regulations. On the downside, this means they no longer accept traders from the USA like Redwood Options or Goptions do.
Signing up for Anyoption is as easy as 1-2-3. There are a few fields you need to fill out such as your first name and address and then you enter your email and select a password. After that you get an activation email which you MUST approve otherwise you will not be able to trade.
Promotions and Incentives:
Anyption offers a welcome bonus of up to 30% your initial deposit amount, and has a trading criteria of 15 times the bonus received. Compared to other brokers this is surprisingly low, however after 3 months those incentives may be taken away from your account if you don’t trade them. So, in being fair this broker offers little incentive but also there is not much trading needed to qualify for cashing out.
Payouts on standard digital options stand on 81%, and with 0-100 you your ROI can be as much as 1000% on executed trades.
Minimum deposit stands at $/€/£ 200 and the min trade allowed is 25 in the relevant currency.
Banking (Deposit and Withdrawal Options)
Anyoption has the most extensive and diverse banking section available today for any binary options trader wanting to invest online. Starting with simple credit card options such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express (Amex), and continuing with Moneybookers (Skrill), Webmoney, and other local payment methods like Sofort, Ideal, and Poli which is primarily designed for traders in Australia. Unlike Optionweb, Anyoption does not support Neteller or Paypal as Goptions does.
The level of professionalism and speedy support out guns anything that’s available out there today. If you are just starting out and are looking for instructional videos and free educational material, the staff will guide you through it. If you are an experienced trader, you can ask for an account manager and they will advise you according to the amount you want to invest.

Trading Types & Features:
Standard Digital Options: Simply guess the direction of the trend (Up/Down or Above/Below) and if you predict correctly your contract will expire in the money.
Option+: This is basically a “sell back” feature where you can sell the option back to the broker before the contract expires if you believe you will have a losing trade. There are no limits on the sell back feature and you can do this as many times as you wish. However, I don’t recommend you do this unless you absolutely have to as it defeats the purpose.
Binary 0-100: This is really a form of speed trading with dynamic returns. You can achieve ROI of up to 1,000% per trade and even more on this high risk/high reward model. There are no limitations and no commissions, however the risk factor is incredibly high due to the constantly changing parameters.
One Touch: In one touch you must guess if the daily sampling price of a certain underlying asset will touch or go above a given price according to a predefined date and time.
Roll Forward: If you are offered a Roll Forward, you have the opportunity of postponing the expiry time of the purchased option to the nearest available expiry time. There is a fee incurred for this feature and its prominently displayed on the site.
Take Profit: Take Profit means you can receive a guaranteed return rate on the option (Call or Put) which was originally purchased prior to the original expiry time of the option. Naturally there is a fee incurred for this as well.
With everything that’s going on today in the binary options industry, it’s good to know there is one platform that has actually made a decision to pay out its traders and act in accordance to some type of regulatory body. Anyoption is definitely the market leader today when it comes to regulated binary options trading and this broker has proven to everyone it has what it takes to make a winning product. Final score 9.9/10.
