Binary Option – what is it?
A binary option is a financial opportunity that offers investors a fixed price and a fixed return. Binary options are also known as Fixed or Digital options and are traded only on the internet.
Earning from Binary Options – How does it Work?
If the option expires “in the money”, the option you invested in will always earn a fixed amount of money for you. At Optionsroom you can earn up to 89% of your total investment amount when options expire “in the money”. For example, on a $500 investment you will receive a $945 return.

A Purchase Price of an Option – What does it Mean?
Every option has its target price. A target price is decided by the broker according to certain pricing updates and market movements. Optionsroom presents its target prices at which it is willing to sell the option. Investors can buy an option on both sides of the purchase price (high or low) according to what they believe the future price will be.
What is an Option Expiry Time?
An expiry time is the exact date and time where an option expires and is no longer tradable. The expiry time for each option is visualized on the trading platform and is adjusted to the investor’s time zone.
How Can I Close an Option Before it Expires?
At Optionsroom you can close an option before it reaches its expiry time, whether it is high or low. Closing purchased options prior to their announced expiry time is available only on some options. For more details on how to close options and understanding the benefits of this method, please see our binary trading sector.
What is the Expiry Level of an Option?
Every option has its own expiry level which marks the level of the underlying asset once the option is expired. An expiry level can be “in the money” (profitable) or “out of the money” (not profitable). Each traded asset has its own expiry levels.
What is the Difference Between ‘ In The Money ‘ and ‘ Out of The Money ‘ Expiry?
When expiring “in the money” your option has acted as you predicted and has gained the return on your initial investment. An option expiring “out of the money” is an option that hasn’t reached its target price and as a result you lose your investment. For example, an option expiring “in the money” would be a high option expiring above the target price, or a low option closing below its target price.
An option closing “out of the money” is an option that hasn’t fulfilled your expectations of the market.
An Option Expiring at the Target Price – Do I Make Profit, or Lose my Money?
If an option you invested in is closing at its exact target price, it is considered to be a “in the money” expiry. Moreover, in this case you will gain 100% of the initial investment you made.
