What are Binary Options Brokers?

Although binary options have been available 'over-the-counter' for many years, since 2008 they have been available through online binary options platforms. This has led to a huge surge in the popularity in trading binary options in recent years. EZTrader was a pioneer in online Binary Option Platforms and one of the first to be fully regulated.

Thanks to technological developments and the ability to now place trades online, binary option trading has become accessible to everyone. Traders can now easily trade on binary option websites, referred to as binary options platforms, without the need for previous experience, knowledge of the financial markets, or an excessive investment of time or money. Therefore, as well as being popular amongst experienced traders because of its simplicity, online binary option platforms are also popular among advanced and experienced traders who are seeking a simple and easy way to trade from the comfort of their home.

Some of the first online binary brokers include EZTrader, Global Option, 24Option and Banc de Binary. Such binary trading websites offer standardized binary options with a pre-determined payout.

Most binary options brokers in existence today purchase standardized software for their trading platform. EZTrader created, develops and maintains their own software, thus offering a unique and superior trading platform. It means that we are able to constantly improve our trading platform and respond quickly to the needs and wishes of our customers. Furthermore, it provides many advantages with regards to regulation. is fully owned and operated by WGM Services Ltd and is an authorized and regulated Binary Options company operating under the Authorization of the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC).

Being regulated is an extremely important factor that differentiates between binary options brokers. Using an online binary broker that is not regulated can expose a trader to many risks. Using a regulated broker is essential to ensure a safe trading experience. It means that funds are stored in safe accounts and transactions are overseen by 3rd parties to ensure fair and legitimate activity.

However, there are two types of regulatory categories for binary option platforms: Companies that own and develop their own software, and companies that do not own their own trading software.

When a company that owns its own trading software is fully regulated, like EZTrader, it means that the entire product – the website, trading software and everything is therefore regulated. Therefore any money that you have placed in binary options through the site will be under the jurisdiction of the broker, and regulated at all times. In contrast, when a company does not develop and own its trading software, it means that once the money is traded on an option, it is no longer under the jurisdiction of the broker, but of the platform provider. Therefore regardless of whether the broker is regulated, unless the platform provider is also regulated -which is often very difficult for a user to verify - your money may not always be in a regulated sphere and its safety cannot be guaranteed.
