Binary options trading is highly risky and banned in certain countries. Because they are all-or-nothing propositions, when a binary option expires an investor may lose his/her entire investment. Trading binary options is made even riskier by fraudulent schemes, many of which originate outside the United States. It is your responsibility to confirm whether or not such trading is right for you and whether it is permitted in your location. We encourage you to consult FINRA, SEC and CFTC alerts on binary options trading.
