    When people ask me about binary option I always recommend that stay away from them.

    The process of trading them resembles gambling more than it does trading and the binary options broker industry has long become notorious for being full of dishonest companies at best and scammers at worst.

    The situation has gotten so bad that even the FBI is issuing warnings against the whole industry and describing the kind of scams don’t trust binary option trading at all.

    Actually Binary Option trading could be the latest thing in the market, but it’s not appropriate for everybody. According to me, if you are individual who likes instantaneous gratification and comparatively smaller profits, then it could be a filed worth checking out.

    but If you have in interest in Forex as long term career, then standard currency trading may be a better choice for you.

    To be honest, Binary Options trading is not for the general traders! It looks like gambling, that’s way novice traders should stay away from Options trading! I started my trading career from stock trading but right now I use only Forex market! I must say, Forex trading business is most flexible one! Here I can moderate my risk percentage with enough defensive rules; that’s way I recommend Forex not Options trading!

    Because of unfair ratio of winning/fail, i.e. odds are heavily stacked against you. If you succeed your payout is only 75% but if you are wrong you lose your bet entirely. In the long run, because of that misbalance it will present substantial difficulty for you to maintain profitable position.

    I wouldn’t exactly use the term “bad” to refer to them, perhaps, but I would definitely say they have a poor reputation for various and, more importantly justified reasons. In on itself binary options are more gambling than trading, and I think we can all agree that it’s very difficult, maybe even impossible, to make a regular profit off gambling. The other reason is that binary options brokers have become all but synonymous with scammers. That is not to say that they are all scammers, I am sure that there are honest ones among them, but the scams have happened so often and have been so egregious that countries like Israel and Belgium, have banned them altogether, France has banned their advertising, and Canada, which initially left those decisions to its regional regulators, is also preparing to ban them altogether.

    I think that if binary options trading was that good there wouldn't have been so many complaints that would lead to such bans.

    Last year July I started a binary trading account. A very warm and friendly young woman used to make regular contact with me to update me on the market status and advise me on attractive trades. During our short relationship, I made a total of 76,250 USD in credit card deposits to this company. In the early months, my trades were going well. I felt looked after and professionally advised. Late last year, my "broker" convinced me that there was very little risk and a very appealing reward to trade in oil. In one single trade session, I lost the sum total of my trading balance. This came as a massive shock after things seemed to be going so favorably for me and I was promised good results. After my account balance reflected 0, I was unable to get hold of my broker. She did not answer my calls or emails and this was very suspicious after she had been the one who made such efforts to keep in touch with me before and then after losing all of my money she was all of a sudden gone! I believe that my money was stolen from me as this company manipulated me into opening a trading account and making larger deposits because of the promises they made. In my experience - I would say that Binary is bad and advise anyone to stay away!

    GuyRomeo, unfortunately your money was definitely stolen and I am not sure if you will be able to get them back. This is what such brokers do, at first they contact you all the time convincing you to make larger and larger deposits and once you lose everything, they are unreachable.
    Just take a look at these threads: I'm going to steal everything you have The terrible cost of binary trading fraud: father of four commits suicide after losing £183,000 - Andrew Penman - Mirror Online
    My advice for everyone is just to stay away.

    Thanks for your reply Sebastiano, and for the links to those articles. Looking back now, I can't believe how naive I was. I can't believe how many people buy into this scam - it's crazy. How are these companies still operating when it is clear that this is daylight robbery?! I've definitely learned my lesson. Thanks for the advice. I hope others take note.
