A Binary option is an option that has two types of outcome: win or lose. When a user wins a trade in binary options with our binary robot, they will received a predetermined and fixed payout, given to them by their broker.
For example, if the payout is 90% and the user bets $100 that the price of an asset to increase in a given time period, they will win $90 is the asset increases in price, or lose the initial $100 if the price goes in the oppostie direction.
What is a binary options robot?
A binary options robot is trading software or an algorithm developed using modern technical indicators specifically for the purpose of automating binary trading. For those who are familiar with Expert Advisers in Forex, a binary options robot is in a way, similar to EAs.
Binary robots are developed to assist novice traders trying to learn the ropes in binary options to make profits as they gain experience. However, this does not mean that experienced traders are forbidden to capitalize on the software-in fact-binary options robots are used widely by those who consider themselves to be experts in the market.
While EAs have been around for decades, binary options robots only began to crop up in the early 2010s. Since then, they have continued to attract many players in the binary options market as their popularity continues to soar. Most binary options robots are not regulated, but most partner brokers that they work with have various regulations.
How does a Binary Options Robot work?
Binary options robots have nothing mechanical about them. They are not some sort of machines like many would imagine when the first hear about them. However, they are designed to execute certain instructions on their own and that’s how they get the name robot.
There are two main types of binary robots. There are those are downloadable and those that are entirely web-based.
Downloadable binary Options robots
These binary options robots are designed in such a way that traders can easily download and save them on their desktops. They are the least popular when you compare them with their web-based counterparts but have more or less the same operating capabilities.
Most of these downloadable binary options use three distinct trading systems to provide traders with a variety of options depending on their risk appetites, experience and trading capital. These are the Classic system, the Martingale, and Fibonacci trading system. Ideally the robot usually has a list of partner brokers from which the traders can apply automated trading. Traders must choose their preferred broker from the list and then download the robot to their computers.
The funds deposited with their broker can then be accessed via the robot’s trading dashboard from which they can choose which assets, what amount, and the timeframes to apply automated trading. They can also adjust which indicators that the robot can use when picking and executing trades on their behalf.
Some of the indicators to choose from include the MACD, the Parabolic SAR, and Relative Strength Index, among others. Traders can always adjust their preferred indicators to use on different assets and can always deactivate automated trading by unchecking the option on the robots trading dashboard.
Web-based binary options robots
With the web-based versions of binary option robots, traders basically do not need to download any software. Everything is done on the web, which is much easier given the fact that binary options brokerage platforms are web-based. As such, most of these robots are offered by binary options brokers and are varied in nature.
There are those that when it comes to trading, have similar capabilities to the downloadable type of binary options robots, which means that the process is pretty much similar bar the download part. The other common type in the web-based version of binary options robots is more about social/copy trading thereby enabling traders to copy trades of their colleagues for various time frames. This type requires traders to select which experts to follow carefully because their gains are dependent on the success of the trades they follow/copy.
Can I make money with Binary Options Robots?
Binary options robots have proven time and again that they can provide a better avenue for novice traders looking to make money in the market. However, just as most providers will tend to point out in the disclaimer; past results cannot be used as a basis to guarantee future returns.
Nonetheless, there are specific performance thresholds that traders use against any provider’s past performance results before signing up for a premium service.
For instance, in order to make money in binary options using a binary options robot, the robot must attain at least 60% average win-rate. This is because most option types listed on various brokerage platforms offer traders a payout of about 85%.
This means that if your trade expires in the money, you do not double your investment in that particular asset, but rather, you are credited with 85%. If the return was 100%, then a win-rate of just 55% would be enough to make you money in binary options.
As such, it is always recommended that even if you choose to use a binary options robot, you try to us a binary options broker that offers the best payout. The higher the average payout per trade, the lower the win-rate will be required for you to make money.
Additionally, in order to make money with a binary options robot, it is important that you make sure that the provider you choose can be trusted. Most binary robots providers promise high win-rates to their traders, only for the traders to end being duped.
In order to avoid falling in such traps, it’s paramount that you do due diligence analysis on the provider. Check whether there are any scam reports about the provider, otherwise your attempt to make money using a binary option robot could turn out to be the worst trading decision you ever made.
Most binary options robots rely on technical indicators to pick out traders, but there are others that incorporate custom algorithms which help them to filter certain market moving events that can result in catastrophic losses. Therefore, when choosing your binary options robot service provider, be on the watch out to check whether the robot is designed to filter such events.
Since robots are technically developed, their ability to accurately predict price or exchange rate movements depends on empirical events. As such, market events that cannot be accurately quantified and factored into the trading robot cannot be included. This is why a binary options robot that’s likely to make you money in the binary options market will always list the ability to halt trading during such market events as one of its main features.
As for robots that do not have this functionality, traders can always halt trading manually by deactivating the autotrading feature on the binary options robot’s trading dashboard. After the event and its predicted impact have passed, the trader can then resume automated trading and watch the system make money depending on the average win-rate.
Again, it’s important to note that some robots help traders to make money on a regular basis while others can go on a draught. So patience may be required at times.
Are Binary Options Robots Legal?
There is no specific regulation set for binary options robots, but depending on the provider of the given service, there are those that are actually regulated.
For instance, most binary options brokers are run by holding companies that have obtained financial derivatives trading licenses from various regulatory bodies. The most common regulators of binary options trading companies are the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission “CySEC”, and UK’s Financial Conduct Authority “FCA”.
In Australia, binary options brokers are regulated by ASIC whereas FSB is the body that oversees the market in South Africa. FSA does the same job in Japan whereas NFA and CFTC regulate exchange-traded binary options in the US.
So the list is long, but if you check closely, there is no specific mention of binary options robots. However, some of the robots such are run by financial trading companies that are regulated by one or more of the various regulatory bodies. This ties them to a fully licensed and regulated company unlike in most cases where the providers of the binary options robot barely have a place to call office.
So when a binary options robot is offered as one of the products of a fully licensed company, it is right to say that the robot has legal status. Nonetheless, it’s important to make sure that it’s clearly stated in the copyright section that the particular binary options robot is a product of the licensed company in question.
Most binary options robots provided by binary options brokers land under this category. However, they are not robots in a nutshell. They are more of social trading platforms rather than robots, but since the trading is automated, they are often put in the same category.
Therefore, when it comes to social trading platforms that are akin to binary options robots, regulation matters less because in any case, trader follow the trades of fellow traders thereby removing any liability from the broker or the binary options robot service provider.
For instance, if you choose to automate your trades by following the trades of another trader whom you believe will deliver substantial wins and things do not turn out as expected, you cannot fault the robot service provider. Also, you cannot claim the robot to be a scam after losing money because, you are the one who selected which and whose trades to copy.
Therefore the question about whether or not binary options robots are legal can be interpreted in several ways. Traders would have to consider the parties involved in providing the service, as well as, whether or not they have a direct relationship with the service itself. You can have a provider who has nothing to do with the trading activity itself.
Binary options robots have no legal status under any regulatory body, but in most cases, the people behind them do. If that does offer any solace for those that really prefer using products that have legal status, then it will have to suffice for now. However, a few years ago binary options trading was not regulated, but now several brokers have EU regulation. Who knows what could happen in the next few years for binary options robots?
Does the Robot Work on Mobile?
Yes. The binary option robot is 100% mobile responsive and can be traded on your mobile.
How do the settings work?

- Assets Traded
- No. of Simultaneous Trades
- Money Management Strategy (including Martingale, Classic and Fibonacci Trading System).

How do I withdraw money?

What are the differences between Signals and Autotrading?
From one point of view, the difference between signals and autotrading is a thin line but from another, you could write down a long list of what separates the two.
So first up, lets draw the thin line between binary options signals and autotrading.
The only thing that separates the two is that in binary options signals, traders execute the trades by acting on the trades picked by the system. On the other hand, when it comes to autotrading, the robot, or the system in this case, executes the trades on the trader’s behalf.
Now the long list;
With trading signals, traders must be logged in the brokerage platform to execute the trade picks generated by the signal service provider, whereas with autotrading, once they have activated the autotrading option the binary options robot does the rest regardless of whether or not the trader is online.
With signals, traders can choose whether or not to act on the trade picks received, whereas with autotrading, unless they deactivate the autotrading option the robot will continue to trade the signals picks generated.
Traders can easily miss out on a trading opportunity when relying on binary options signals if they are not close to one of the provider’s selected forms of delivery. Some binary options robots service providers deliver their signals through multiple platforms including SMS, web, and Email, but others only deliver via web, or email. This means that you can easily miss out on a signal if you are not in a position to receive the alert. On the contrary, in autotrading the trader’s input is not required. Once a trader has applied the various filters on the binary options robot as per his/her preferred trading style, the robot takes care of the rest. So no binary options trading opportunities are missed.
With binary options signals, the level of win-rate can be affected by time lapse between when a trader receives a signal and when he/she actually acts on it. While the providers always indicate a certain trading window within which the trader must act, it always better to act instantaneously. It’s not possible to do that manually. However, with autotrading, the binary options robot applies the trade instantaneously thereby eliminating any potential time lapses.
With binary options signals, it is more difficult to apply certain trading strategies that make use of popular binary options trading systems such as the Martingale and the Fibonacci systems. However, with autotrading, using such a strategy is pretty easy especially if the binary option robot is equipped with the three main trading systems.
With binary options signals, the trader’s average win-rate can greatly be affected depending ln the signals he chooses to act on. It’s possible that one trader could end up being more than another despite using the same service over the same period due to the differences in signals executed. On the other hand, if you follow/copy a certain trader’s trades, then you can be sure to expect the same results at the end of the given trading session.
How are the Signals generated?
The signals are generated by the technical indicators that you choose in your trading rules. For beginners, we recommend using the Trend following strategy.
