Option trading

Examples of binary option types available at AnyOption are the classic binary option, the option plus, and the binary 0-100.

Regrettably, AnyOption doesn’t have any binary options that expires within a minute after purchase. The only thing resembling this are the binary options that expire at the end of the hour, end of the day, end or the week, or end of the month. Depending on when you purchase them, they may have a very short time left to maturity.

The AnyOption Option Plus (Option+) is a binary option that you can close prematurely, if you want to. How much you get for the option when you sell it prematurely depends on the situation for the underlying instrument.

The AnyOption Binary 0-100 is a binary option that can yield a 100% profit.

In addition to the standard selection of binary options, AnyOption sometimes sell novelty binary options where your task is to correctly predict the valuation of a specific company that is going public.

Underlying financial instruments

At the time of writing, binary options are available with approximately 140 different underlying instruments at AnyOption. Worthy of mentioning is that AnyOption sell binary options based on the currency pair Bitcoin/USD. This is pretty unusual. The bitcoin/USD binary options at AnyOption are normally options that expire at the end of the month and pay 50% – 70% if they pay out.

Only four commodities are available as underliers for binary options at AnyOption, which is a bit on the lean side in our opinion. It would be nice to have more choices available in the commodity section.

Customer support

English speaking customer support is available through phone and email. Regrettably, there is no live chat support. Customer support is only available during weekdays, not on weekends. On weekdays, the support is open around the clock (from 7 am on Monday to 11 pm on Friday).

Instead of calling the customer support directly, you send your phone number to the support and they will call you back. This way, you don’t have to pay for the call and you never end up in a queue.

Reputation

AnyOption has a good reputation online. An often quoted downside however is the limited support time (closed on weekends) and the absence of live chat support. Ones you do manage to reach the support, the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, but increased opening hours would really be a big plus for AnyOptions reputation online.

Another aspect that is often brought up when AnyOption is discussed by traders is the comparatively low payout on AnyOption binary options (70% is common). This low payout is in part an effect of AnyOption’s 15% cash back system. You simply have to decide if this trade-off is worth it for you, based on your particular trading habits.
