FSMA in Belgium unveils its Forex and Binary Options blacklist

To evolve serenely and safely in the world of binary options, investors must be very careful in choosing the online broker with whom they will conduct their transactions, whether they are forex or binary options. For those who do, traders should be vigilant before registering and speculating on a platform. It is in their best interest to select the most reliable sites. In this context, they can rely on the black lists revealed by the competent bodies.

On the Belgian side, the FSMA or Autorité des services et marchés financiers is responsible for publishing the names of brokers whose names it is better to be wary of. In particular, the list was updated at the beginning of October 2015.

The black list of online brokers

In Belgium, the Autorité des services et marchés financiers is in charge of disclosing the black list of online brokers to be wary of. This document reveals the names of financial intermediaries who do not justify the authorisation to operate in Belgian territory. It can be compared to the black list of the AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers in France) which also regularly reveals sites not recommended to French traders.

belgian regulator fsma blacklist

However, the list shared by the FSMA shows a small difference: it does not only include Forex traders and binary options, but also investment firms, financial firms and banks. It should also be noted that the majority of these entities are simply scammersas is too often found in the world of financial investments.

A brief reminder about the FSMA

The Autorité des services et marchés financiers is responsible for monitoring financial markets, ensuring that operators have integrity and that consumers are not harmed. It should be recalled that a permanent control is being set up in Belgium in order to maintain market stability, but also to preserve investor confidence. Transparency, fairness, honesty, security and professionalism are the key words.

In practice, supervision is carried out by two entities: the FSMA on the one hand and the National Bank of Belgium on the other. For its part, the FSMA closely monitors the financial markets and listed companies. In addition, its role is to supervise certain financial institutions and grant authorisations. This institution ensures that financial intermediaries comply with the guidelines. At the same time, it contributes to the sound financial education of individuals operating in financial markets.

A historic sponsorship contract between broker number 1 and OGC Nice

This sponsorship contract was welcomed by the two managers of these entities, so Mr Michel Teman, CEO of Interactive Option, described this event as historic in the following terms: “For the first time we are investing in a Ligue 1 football club. These beginnings mark an important step in our communication strategy on the French market. While Mr Jean-Pierre Rivière, head of the OGC Nice football club (Olympique Gymnaste Club Nice Côte d’Azur), declared his satisfaction with the following statement: “We are delighted to have obtained the confidence of a new partner, who has seen OGC Nice as an attractive and ambitious club”.

An exceptional competition accessible to all

The official partnership signed between Interactive Option and OGC Nice will allow the broker to display his logo on the football jerseys of the Aiglons niçois, it will also allow him to decorate the Allianz Riviera, the football stadium of the Nice team with his colours. Last but not least, the organisation of a competition in the form of a draw. A competition in which new members and former users of the Interactive Option trading platform can participate. Indeed, every 15th and 10th of the month at 7pm, a draw will give the winner a VIP weekend in Nice in a 5-star hotel, transport included as well as 2 VIP box seats in the Allianz Riviera. Each 500 € deposit will entitle you to one entry in the draw for this contest open to all.

Forex and binary options: What are the differences?

Forex and binary options trading is a growing sector, especially with the emergence of Internet platforms that allow you to take positions easily and at a reduced cost. But what are the differences between these two products and which one to choose for your investment strategy?

Which underlying assets?

In forex, the underlying asset is, as its name suggests, generally a currency pair such as EUR/GBP or USD/JPY, so the price depends on the relative strength of the two currencies. Forex is a decentralized market in the main financial markets (London, New York, Tokyo), market participants (mainly banks) offer a purchase and sale price that they publish with financial information sources such as Reuters or Bloomberg for their clients, investment funds and large companies. These are the prices that are then reused by your forex broker to offer you a price to buy or sell. So there is no exchange where forex is centralized, which is why we call it the OTC (Over The Counter) market.

By extension, many forex brokers also offer you the opportunity to take a position on commodities (gold, oil, silver, etc.), equities (Total, Apple, Facebook, etc.) or indices (CAC 40, S&P500, Nasdaq, etc.). This is more generally referred to as Contract For Difference, often referred to as CFD. But if forex is so appreciated, it is thanks to the liquidity it offers and its quotation 24 hours a day, five days a week with the possibility of significant movements and therefore profits throughout the day and night.

Binary options do not have this original restriction in terms of available underlyings, you will be able to choose currency pairs, commodities, stocks and indices on almost all platforms such as TopOption. They are also products exchanged by mutual agreement between you and your broker.

forex difference and binary options

What financial principles?

The principle of forex is the easiest to explain, let’s take a concrete case where you want to buy the EUR/USD pair, more precisely take a position of 1000 EUR while the rate is 1.33. You place an order with your broker who will sell for you 1330 USD and give you 1000 EUR. If the rate goes up to 1.34, you can then give the order to close your position and the broker will buy back 133 USD, which will only cost you 1330/1.34 = 992.5 EUR, so you keep 7.5 Euros which are your profit on this transaction.

But what makes forex so attractive is the leverage effect. Your broker can lend you money so that you can take more important positions than your capital would allow and thus multiply your gains (and possibly your losses). Let’s take the example of the above transaction with a leverage of 100:

  • Your broker lends you 133,300 USD.
  • Your broker sells 133,000 USD by buying 100,000 EUR for you.
  • The EUR/USD rate rises to 1.34, you give the order to close the position.
  • Your broker buys back 133,000 USD against 99,250 EUR and you keep the rest.
  • Your profit is therefore 750 EUR.

Your broker will block part of your funds during the transaction in case you lose money, this is called the initial margin. We took a leverage of 100 so the initial margin was EUR 1000 which became EUR 1750, i.e. a gain of 75% while the “Spot”, i.e. the gross price of the EUR/USD only moved by 0.75%, which is the full power of the leverage effect.

Be careful, the leverage is not without risks, if we had been in the wrong direction, the margin of 1000 EUR would have decreased to 250 EUR and you would have lost 75% of your initial investment. If your margin reaches 0 EUR, your broker will then close the position or ask you to add money to your margin, this is called a “margin call”, the fear of all traders. Finally, since you borrow Dollars from your broker, you will have to pay interest if you want to hold the position overnight, while you will receive interest on the Euros you lend to your broker.

euro usd

The principle of binary options is very different, a simple binary option has three key factors, its direction (call or put), its maturity (or expiration) and its strike (or opening price). When you buy a binary option, the strike is the spot, i.e. the current price of the underlying asset. So you still have the choice of maturity and direction.

When you buy a binary option, you invest a premium of your choice, unlike a share where you have to pay the share price for example. The payment you will receive at maturity is as follows:

  • For a call, if the price of the underlying asset is above the strike, the option expires in the currency, you earn the proposed profit (you recover your premium a profit)
  • For a call, if the price of the underlying asset is below the strike, the option expires out of the money, you lose your premium
  • For a put, if the price of the underlying asset is below the strike, the option expires out of the money, you earn the proposed profit (you recover your premium a profit)
  • For a put, if the price of the underlying asset is above the strike, the option expires in the currency, you lose your premium

If the binary option expires at exactly the same price as the strike, the option is said to expire in the currency and your payment will depend on the broker, some refund your premium, others consider the option a winner or loser.

There are other types of binary options with an on/off barrier (you are paid if the price reaches a threshold, or if it does not reach the limits). Some brokers also offer to resell your binary options before they mature, so you will usually earn a little less of the premium if you were in the currency at the time of sale and recover some money if you were out of the money.

binary option difference

What uses?

It is in the context of use that forex and binary options vary most, as you may have seen above, the profit system is completely different. Binary options give you the same gain if you end up in the currency of 0.5% or 10% while in forex your gains are proportional to the amplitude of the movement you predicted.

The path the underlying asset follows is very important in forex, if you think a pair will rise by the end of the month but it starts to fall sharply and abruptly, you could have a margin call from your broker. You don’t have this problem with binary options because only the final price will count, no matter how far out of the money your option was as long as it ends in the currency at expiration.

In the range of choices and variations available to you, it is mainly the types of orders that will allow you to develop your Forex strategy (limit, stop, follower stop, etc.) while it is the product itself that will be differentiated with binary options (call, put, 60 seconds, one touch, no touch, etc.)

What are the risks?

With binary options, the risk is limited to the invested premium, you can not lose more than what you initially put. The same applies to earnings, which are limited to the profit offered by your broker. With forex, gains and losses are unlimited, if your margin reaches zero during the day, your position will be cut off. The most dangerous phenomenon is the so-called gap, when a market opens on Monday much lower or much higher than it closed on Friday. Your margin can then become negative and your broker will claim the difference, which is why it is strongly discouraged to hold a position on weekends as it is impossible to leave it. To ensure your positions you can also copy the practices of the best traders on social trading platforms like eToro.

To conclude, these two instruments are used by hedge funds to take offensive or defensive positions depending on the expected scenarios, so it is difficult to say that one is better than the other, why not try both and see which one suits you best?

The 5 Scams of Binary Option Trading

Attention

Binary option trading sites in 2018 are no longer recommended at all, which is why MassLib informs you of this change and strongly advises you to use brokers other than those mentioned in this article, if you wish to trade shares or cryptomones. Below is a comparative table of the best brokers at the beginning of 2021. It’s up to you to play

The Top 5 of the Best Brokers in France

Binary option trading offers a profit potential that is probably unparalleled in the world of finance and stock market investments. But it is necessary to keep your eyes open to protect yourself from scams. Scams are not intrinsically linked to binary options or robots, however powerful they may be, as in all sectors of activity, it is necessary to know how to separate the wheat from the chaff and that is the objective of this guide.

1 – Only communicate with regulated brokers

cysec

To protect yourself from scams, the first step is to trade ONLY on regulated brokers. We recommend the following 3 brokers with excellent customer service and fast withdrawals:

The regulatory authority will frequently monitor your broker’s level of professionalism. This is the assurance that your financial intermediary complies with a code of best practices and that the client’s interest is at the heart of its activity. Regulation also ensures the segregation of the company’s customer and equity funds. If your broker goes bankrupt, your money can then be returned to you in full.

number 00e9ro 3bdswiss broker★★★★★★see the website

2 – Consult the terms and conditions

Cache and scam conditions bonus like a needle in a haystackWhile the terms and conditions are long and daunting, they are worth the cost of reading. First of all, they make it possible to check the seriousness of the broker (spelling, grammar, consistency of the text, etc.). They also identify some abusive conditions such as hidden fees or complicated withdrawal conditions. They also often contain methods for unlocking bonuses or promotions. In any case, we do not recommend accepting bonuses, but we do recommend the training offered by OptionWeb and AnyOption

3 – Learn from the experience of others

You are probably not the only one who wants to use the best binary options broker. What will make the difference is the positions you take at this broker. Check out the sites that specialize in binary option trading and user reviews, look for informed reviews that weigh the pros and cons. Be careful, some promotional sites only contain positive reviews written by the brokers themselves, while other traders are screaming at the scam when they simply have not managed their limits and positions properly. Collect information from several trusted sources to avoid bad moves and find the best broker. We offer you on our website reviews and tests on the best regulated brokers such as Optionweb, the best broker in France.

stop the scams

4 – Check the functioning of the bonus

Customer support version chat versionThe bonus is often an important asset that almost all binary option brokers offer you. You must understand that in order to obtain this attractive condition, there is a counterpart. You will often have to trade 10 to 50 times the amount of your initial deposit and bonus before you can release all or part of the funds invested on the platform. Read in detail the conditions for awarding and withdrawing the bonus to avoid any unpleasant surprises when you want your money back.

We advise you NEVER to accept bonuses

5 – Know who your contact person is

Don’t trust binary option site salespeople blindly from the beginning, you shouldn’t feel rushed to make a decision. If you are asked for your credit card number repeatedly, first ask to test a free account. Try to check that your broker has a physical address and offices (no PO Box) and call their support service to check that they really exist and that they are competent.

If you follow these tips, you should be able to avoid the vast majority of scams that revolve around binary options. This advice is also valid for the vast majority of forex brokers and they should always be followed with a view to not having bad experiences.

BONUS

Meditation trading in binary optionThere is no secret or easy money. Traders who manage to win in the long term have worked very hard and have been trained for years.

If you have a well-made head, read many books, attend training courses, webinars, books, podcasts.

That you actively participate in a trading community, that you are curious and that you have strong loins, then you should be able to be part of the small percentage of traders who earn in the long term.

If you think that trading is not for you then we advise you to play in demo mode and invest your money in a low-risk way, i.e. in your A passbook, in bonds, in company shares that will never go bankrupt (like CocaCola that made Warren Buffet’s fortune) or in real estate.

There are no big gains without big risks. Binary options and currency trading are very volatile and risky markets, where you can win or lose big. If you wish to trade the options we recommend the 3 brokers below 100% CySEC regulated and registered at the Regafi of the ACPR Banque de France.

As a result, the broker can still legally operate with traders located in France and guarantee their safety, which you can find at the ACPR Banque de France, which will be your main contact for mediation.

Why choose AnyOption? Answer in our test and review

Our review
4

In a nutshell

AnyOption may not be the best broker in terms of immediate profits but remains a sure bet for anyone who wants to trade binary options. With its announced yield, profit and return on loss you have complete transparency on the result of your trade.

We love all the tools offered but also those that are made available before the deadline. The small minus is its rather classic rate of return that prevents it from getting a better rating. Overall, AnyOption remains a trusted broker and one of the leading in the binary options market! He is to be placed among the challengers for his varied offer and creativity.

AnyOption allows you to have new experiences with binary options. You will also be able to observe the positions of other traders and maybe earn more by copying the best with its social trading system.

In the event that market developments do not work in their favour, investors can change their minds. They can also extend the expiration date of options using the renewal tool provided by AnyOption.

Profits up to 100%

On AnyOption, the minimum deposit is €200, with no welcome bonus offered. Traditional binary option trading can earn up to 80% of your investment, with a 25% return on loss. However, with the features offered on the site, it is possible to make very significant gains. The 0-100 option allows you to make a profit of up to 100% by focusing on a specific event. But as you know, the higher the return, the higher the risk of loss, if you start with the classic binary options first and then move on to 0-100 binary. It is only necessary to follow some assets both on the economic news and on the graphical representations of the prices. Don’t forget to apply analytical techniques to invest in the right assets at the right time.

The classic binary option

We find the classic offer in the binary option with the call/put. If you think the asset will rise within the time limit you put a call, if you think it will fall you put a put. AnyOption gives you the benefit of a return on loss in the event of bad trades. Thus for a profit of 55% you can achieve 25% return on loss while failure on a profit of 75% will only see 5% of the amount refunded.The classic binary option allows you to place a position from 25 euros for an average yield of 75%. Remember that even if the return seems lower on some options such as this one, you can still receive a partial refund.

It is a bit like scalping binary options with the ability to take a position and quickly resell it to AnyOption who will offer a price. The objective is to take a few euros right and left and finally end the day with a full scholarship.You can refuse the price and wait until you are in a better configuration by doing “Get a quote” while you are still in the official deadline. The

0-100 binaries

The 0-100 binaries options allow you to select an event that is in the form of an affirmation of the type :

  • The X option will end above the Y value at time Z.

If you buy and the asset ends up well above value in the right time frame, you can earn a more than attractive profit and up to 1000% (but in this case the risks are high).You can also decide to sell if you do not believe in the event. You earn a profit on the selling price, but in case of loss it is the difference between the price and 100 that is lost.

One touch

The One touch is quite common among brokers. Here the trader will determine whether or not the asset will receive a limit. During the delay, the option is validated if the course touches the level at least once. Here all the elements are known in advance by the trader, delays, profits or losses.This option is available on specific assets and only during weekends.

The long term

The long term option takes up the principle of the classic binary option with the difference that here you will let your assets run for several weeks and even up to a year! This option can reach 380 and more rarely 1000% for profits

Bitcoin, the of the long term:

The long term option gives the opportunity to process the digital currency Bitcoin as a pair with the USD

AnyOption Bubbles

A new way to trade binary options appears at AnyOption. Bubbles is a graphical representation of the price evolution on which you will be able to place a bubble that will define your position. If the price curve touches the bubble you win the position. On the other hand, you lose if you have not reached your goal.By placing the bubble corresponding to your position, you can define its size and thus play on the percentage of risk and therefore see the profit increase or decrease according to your strategy. AnyOption Bubbles is more graphic and more fun. We must not forget that this is about money and that there is no question of betting blindly. Accompany your decisions with good money management because the Bubbles option can quickly become addictive.

A significant return on loss and variable profitsThe

return on loss will not totally replace the amount lost but it is in the interest of existing. Not all of them offer to benefit from a return on loss for trades. It is here that AnyOption offers us a little something extra when things are not going in the right direction. You can also change your profit on a classic binary option by changing the profit percentage. So you can choose to take more or less risk.

AnyOption Live

The Live data of AnyOption provides you with trading information from other traders. This is actually a copy trading solution for binary options. You will also be able to consult information on the trading trends of an asset at AnyOption. Expiry information is also available through Reuters’ service, which provides real-time asset quotes on the markets.

The Take Profit

AnyOption can offer you during a trade the take profit. The broker allows you to lock the result and receive the proposed premium before maturity. The Take Profit can appear 15 minutes before the end of the expiry date and for a period of 5 minutes.

Roll Forward

Like Take Profit, you can change the layout of your position here by postponing the expiry date of your asset to a shorter term. The system is similar to Take Profit, depending on the asset you will be notified within 15 minutes before the expiry of the possibility to use Roll Forward.

Bonus conditions

As you know, the bonus is the promotional point put forward by brokers to seduce but in some cases it is better to refuse it. With AnyOption you must use your bonus within 3 months, after that it is withdrawn from your account. Regarding the withdrawal you will need to have traded at least 15 times the amount of the profit. I’ll let you judge this offer, which is not the worst either. If you are a beginner, refuse the bonus!

Deposits and withdrawals

There are many solutions for deposits and withdrawals. So in both cases you can either use:

  • a credit card
  • a bank transfer
  • Skrill for the deposit

You can of course register for free on AnyOption and deposit your money later. The withdrawal must be at least equal to the minimum amount paid in your country. If this is not the case, AnyOption will apply additional fees

If the first minimum deposit on the site is €250, Interactive Option does not require the same in terms of trading. The minimum position opening on the gate is only €5.

Stock market, Forex and Binary Option: what are the differences and commonalities?

Stock market, Forex and Binary Option, all these terms seem technical but it is necessary to learn to differentiate them since there may be similarities a priori but this has nothing to do with it.

For the 3 markets, these are platforms where asset swaps are carried out to hope for gains.

First of all, let’s define the 3 terms to make sure that everything is well defined.

Definition of the 3 financial markets

The Stock Exchange

It is an institution, private or public, that makes it possible to exchange standardized goods or assets and thus set their price. We will speak here of stock exchanges, these are exchanges where company securities are traded (as opposed to commercial exchanges where it is commodities that are traded).

The primary role of the exchange is to finance companies. It is also an investment place where securities are traded.

The 3 largest (or 3 best-known) stock exchanges in the world are:

  1. Euronext Paris, Europe
  2. London Stock Exchange
  3. New York Stock Exchange

The Forex

The word “Forex” comes from the contraction of the English term Foreign Exchange.

Forex is the foreign exchange market on which so-called convertible currencies (Euro, Dollar, etc.) are traded against each other at exchange rates that change over time. Trading in the Forex market consists of combining two different currencies, the euro and the dollar being the most traded currencies. The purpose of the speculator is therefore to trade his euros for dollars in order to make profits.

Binary Options

As indicated in the article about binary options,

The binary option is a means of trading that is based on the rise (call) or fall (put) of a product’s price such as a stock or currency over a specified period.
It is called binary because only two outcomes are possible:

  • or the option ends favourably “in the money” and you receive the fixed amount that depends on the initial investment,
  • or the option ends unfavourably and you lose your entire investment.

What are the differences or similarities between Forex, Stock Exchange and Binary Options?

The Stock Exchange is a highly regulated market. Forex and Binary Options are 2 very trendy investments that have attracted many neophytes since they are very easy to understand. At the same time, unscrupulous brokers wanting to recover a lot of money from investors.

Binary options offer investors the opportunity to speculate on a wide range of financial assets (including currencies), unlike Forex, which is only interested in currencies.

In the stock market, assets are highly diversified, ranging from commodities to corporate equities. In Forex, we only speculate on international currencies.
When investing in the currency market, the quotation is done in pairs, it is a question of predicting the rise or fall of one currency against another. On the stock exchange, transactions concern unit assets listed according to supply and demand.

Forex and Binary Options are continuously opened via the web allowing the trader to invest in everything. This is different for the Stock Exchange where orders can be placed via the bank or the Internet but at defined time slots depending on the Exchange.
In France, the pre-opening of the market takes place from 7:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. where buy and sell orders accumulate in the central computer managing the orders of the betting exchange. The latter calculates the opening price. The market opens from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm where supply and demand are directly compared on the market to determine the price of the shares. Finally, from 5:30 pm to 5:35 pm, the closing price is calculated.
