IQ Option — All Trading Instruments

Options

Options are the most basic and at the same time the most popular instrument currently available on the IQ Option platform. Trading options is easier (at least, from the technical point of view) than the rest of the instruments. Still, the art and science of options trading will require time and effort to master. In order to trade options, do the following:

  • Go to the trade room,
  • Click the “Open New Asset” button in the upper side of the screen,
  • Choose an asset you want to trade from the “Options” category,
  • Specify the amount of money to invest and the expiration time,
  • Push CALL if you believe the underlying asset is about to go up in price and PUT if, according to you, it will depreciate.

The same mechanic is used for a wide range of assets. Currency pairs, shares of successful companies, indices and gold — all can be traded as options. Options trading does not involve the purchase of the underlying asset. Instead, the trader predicts the price of the asset at the time of expiration and, if correct, receives fixed remuneration. Options can have an expiration time of up to one month. Still, this instrument is better suited for short-term operations.

When trading options, the trader has an opportunity to close deals prematurely. This can come in handy when the trend is in your favor or when your forecast turns out to be incorrect. Don’t let the seeming simplicity of this tool fool you, irresponsible attitude and emotionality can turn even potentially profitable deals into a financial nightmare.

 

Digital Options

Digital options utilize the same mechanic as regular options do, but with an interesting twist. Instead of comparing the asset price at the time of expiration to the price at the opening, the platform will offer you to choose the so-called strike price. It will then be used to determine whether your prediction holds true or not. The potential profit in this case is not fixed and can be as high as 900%. The profit will also be adjusted to the strike price, as it is relatively easier for an asset to reach the strike price that is closer to the current price. In order to trade digital options, do the following:

  • Go to the trade room,
  • Click the “Open New Asset” button in the upper side of the screen,
  • Choose an asset you want to trade from the “Digital” category,
  • Specify the amount of money to invest, the strike price and the expiration time,
  • Push CALL if you believe the underlying asset is about to go up in price and PUT if, according to you, it will depreciate.

Strike prices represent the well-known risk-return ratio. In trading, nothing comes for free. Higher potential profit will mean that the chance of losing your initial investment is also higher. Choose the risk level you are ready to take.

 

Forex

Forex has become the preferred choice of many professional daily traders. Foreign exchange is also the biggest and most crowded market on the planet. Cryptocurrencies, though popular, can boast only $3.8 billion in daily trading volume. NASDAQ has $100 billion but it is still dwarfed by $5 trillion that Forex has. What makes millions of people from all over the world trade currency pairs? Forex trading is engaging, requires a lot of skill to master and has decent profit potential.

Here is what you want to do in order to trade Forex:

  • Go to the trade room,
  • Click the “Open New Asset” button in the upper side of the screen,
  • Choose the currency pair you want to trade from the “Forex” category,
  • Specify the amount of money to invest, choose the multiplier and adjust the auto closing,
  • Push BUY if you believe the currency pair will appreciate and SELL if, according to you, it will go down in price.

When trading Forex with IQ Option, users can get an edge with the help of two distinctive features: the multiplier and the auto closing. By using a multiplier, the trader can control a position that is greater than the amount of funds at his disposal. For example, when opening a $100 deal and using an x5 multiplier your potential profit (and loss) will be calculated as if you were investing $500. The auto closing will let your deals close automatically once a certain level of profit (or loss) is reached. Fundamental factors (interest rates, inflation, overall economic performance) play an important role in Forex trading.

 

CFD

A contract for difference or a CFD is an instrument used to trade equity without buying the shares of the underlying companies. The former mirrors the performance of the stock and provides the trader with an opportunity to capitalize on price movements. But why trade CFDs when you can simply buy stocks? CFDs are easier to buy, sell and manage. Moreover, they can be traded with a multiplier, proportionally increasing your profit (and potential loss). Negative trends can destroy a shareholder, but for CFD traders it is just an opportunity to consider. A long list of popular and successful companies is available for trading.

In order to trade CFDs, abide by the following steps:

  • Go to the trade room,
  • Click the “Open New Asset” button in the upper side of the screen,
  • Choose the company you want to trade from the “CFD” category,
  • Specify the amount of money to invest, choose the multiplier and adjust the auto closing,
  • Push BUY if you believe the asset will appreciate and SELL if, according to you, it will go down in price.

In CFD trading, fundamental factors are different than in case of Forex but they also play an important role. How well the company performs, what are its strengths and weaknesses, how much money it makes — these are the questions you want to ask yourself before making a serious commitment.

 

Crypto

After its deafening success back in 2017, the cryptocurrency market has lost a portion of its former glory. Still, cryptocurrencies play a certain role in the global financial system and offer tremendous trading opportunities. With IQ Option you can trade 13 different cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, EOS, Litecoin and many other.

Here is how you can trade cryptocurrencies with IQ Option:

  • Go to the trade room,
  • Click the “Open New Asset” button in the upper side of the screen,
  • Choose the cryptocurrency you want to trade from the “Crypto” category,
  • Specify the amount of money to invest and adjust the Auto Closing,
  • Push BUY if you believe the crypto will appreciate and SELL if, according to you, it will go down in price.

Crypto Trading Iq Options

When working with cryptocurrencies, a number of different strategies can be used. For short-term-oriented investors day trading and news trading seem like a viable option. From time to time crypto-related companies and organization make announcements that move the market. They constitute perfect trading opportunities. Holders, on the contrary, invest in long-term deals, waiting for months and even years for a crypto asset to grow in price.

 

Exchange

Exchange is a relatively new addition to the list of IQ Option products. It was designed with the purpose of providing traders with a safe and convenient way of buying, keeping and selling cryptocurrency. A list of 13 different cryptocurrencies is currently available to the traders. What’s the purpose of exchange if you can already buy cryptocurrencies in the ‘Crypto’ section of the platform? ‘Crypto’ is a contract for difference and does not involve the transfer of cryptocurrency to your account. When opening a suchlike order, you are not buying the crypto itself. Rather, you are trying to predict its future price. When using the exchange, you are trading with other traders, buying and selling cryptocurrency directly from and to the market.

The exchange works differently than the rest of the products:

  • Go to the trade room,
  • Click the “Open New Asset” button in the upper side of the screen,
  • Choose the cryptocurrency you want to trade from the “Exchange” category,
  • Choose between ‘Purchase now’ and ‘Limit order’,
  • Enter the amount you want to purchase/sell,
  • Click BUY or SELL depending on your forecast. Note that you can sell cryptocurrency only if you have previously bought it.

By choosing the ‘Purchase now’ option you will buy or sell the specified amount of crypto at the current price. Note that depending on your order size the market price can fluctuate significantly. This option is not recommended for big deals. By choosing the ‘Limit order’ option you will get an opportunity to specify the price you want to buy or sell the asset at.
