Trader Choice

Top Option provide over 180 assets for trading. These include currencies, stocks, commodities and indices. The range of options is extensive when compared to rival brokers, so traders with specific requirements for less frequently traded assets may find Top Option are a good fit.

In addition to a full asset list, Top Option also provide a choice of differing option types,

  • Classic Option – This is the traditional binary option, will an asset rise in value, or fall?
  • One Touch – Will the asset price ‘touch’ a preset value? (Either high or low). These options offer higher payouts when the preset values are set a significant distance from the strike price. They differ from the Touch-no-touch option because the option of ‘no touch’ is not available to trade. If the ‘touch’ is not made, the trade will lose.
  • Pro Option – Configure an option as required. Pair assets against each other, our use advanced features, such as doubling up, delaying exits or closing early.
  • Speed Master – Just like a ‘classic’ option, but with very short expiry times (60, 90 or 120 seconds).
  • Touch-no-touch – Will an asset price touch a preset price? his option can be traded in both directions, for example – ‘Yes’, the price will touch the target price, or ‘No’ the price will not touch the asset price. Useful in flat markets.

Payout

The trading payouts at Top Option are among the best. The highest payout is 85% which is good relative to other binary options brokers. One Touch binary options can also provide payouts at an even higher rate, so they are another avenue for quick, significant returns.
