What are Advanced binary options?

Advanced binary options are a variation of the standard Up/down binary options. The difference between both is the way the trader selects the expiration date of the option. With the Advanced binary option the trader has now the possibility to determine the end date of the option. This in contrast to the normal Up/Down binary option, where the trader can only choose out of predetermined expiry dates. The Advanced option gives the trader total flexibility on choosing the duration of a binary option. The trader can choose from a duration of 5 minutes to 1 month.

The Advanced binary options are therefore ideal for traders that want to trade with fixed duration periods and also for those who prefer more long term expiration dates, like an end date in the middle of the week.

How to select the Advanced binary options?

When you go to the Traderoom of abcOptions, then you will have to select the Advanced tab in order to start trading with the Advanced binary options.

The uniqueness of the Advanced binary option is the free choice of the term of the binary option. The choice of the term is divided into three different periods: Short term, Mid term, and Long term.

The Short term duration gives you the possibility to choose an option duration of 5 minutes up to 60 minutes, at intervals of 5 minutes. The desired duration is set by moving the button on the bar, so that the expiration time, which is visible under the bar, is adjusted.

The Mid term duration gives you the possibility to choose an option duration of 1 hour up to 24 hours, at intervals of 1 hour. The desired duration is set by moving the button on the bar, so that the expiration time, which is visible under the bar, is adjusted.


4.3 Long term duration

The Long term gives you the possibility to choose an option duration of 1 day up to 1 month in the future, at intervals of 1 day. The desired duration is set by clicking on the date, then a calendar will appear. In this calendar, you can choose the day when you want the option to expire. After you made your choice, the expiration date of the option is visible.


5. When your trade is executed a Green box is displayed in the top right of the traderoom, showing TRADE SUCCESSFUL.
