I used to really like the B.O (IQ Option) but only just for 6 months, and there is no problem with that broker. The problem is I benefit not commensurate with the pressure that is too high. Why should there any expiration time? It's a such silly invesment and who will win against time? we're all will loose. Although we get high gain with B.O, Our health will loose.


I think what you say is right. Maybe the whole story behind having expiration dates is to use urgency that can make you take emotional decisions which leads usually to losses. Stress is a good thing in trading but not if it goes over certain level.

Trade with determination!

The FBI recently issued a warning against ealing with unregulated binary options platforms and brokers. (https://www.forexbrokerz.com/news/FBI-Losses-from-binary-options-fraud-run-into-the-millions)

In a publication entitled “Binary Options Fraud, A Word of Warning to the Investing Public” the FBI notes that the binary options fraud is a growing problem and says that between 2011 and 2016 the number of complaints and sums lost to this type of scam have grown exponentially. “In 2011, our Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received four complaints—with reported losses of just more than $20,000—from binary options fraud victims. Fast forward five years, and the IC3 received hundreds of complaints with millions of dollars in reported losses during 2016”, FBI said, adding that those figures reflect only the filed complaints. The true extent of the fraud, which is international in its nature, is not really known.

In its publication FBI lists the most frequent types of fraud employed by scam binary options platforms.

I was a victim of scam bo broker. That made me do large research and my conclusion is: legit bo brokers dont exist. You are always on lost position. 100% of them are market makers and that means if you win, they lose. It is them who pays profit to clients. Very common is closing accounts of winners, price manipulations, luring newbies with promises, asking for credit card details. What is more almost every single bo broker supports scam robots thanks to which you become millionaire overnight. I heard so many lies from manager who tried to convince me to try again. It is hilarious how far they can go to make you give them money. Just be careful with binary options bucket shop brokers.. They are really numerous. In my opinion bo industry is 100% scam so I advise everyone to stay away. If you make deposit your money is most likely gone.

Absolutely true!
They still call me today, not the broker i have been, but others (they sell the contact details to other scammers). I shouted on the phone to never call me again, but they do. Now my girlfriend answers and tells them I don´t live there anymore. So they try with her!!! 😀

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), a US self-regulatory organization (SRO), joined a long list of authorities that warn about the high risks of binary options. (https://smnweekly.com/2017/03/17/us-finra-alerts-of-binary-options-follow-up-schemes/)

The regulator emphasized on two particular schemes for which investors should be on guard – recovery scams and IRS impersonation scams. Usually, scammers contact investors, telling them they know about their trading accounts and the money they’ve lost to binary options and asking for money to help them recoup the generated losses.

FINRA also lists the tricks scammers often use to pressure investors into paying the requested amount.
