You're never far away from the next opportunity to trade with our binary charts:
A binary is generally based on a single question with a yes/no answer. For example:
Will the underlying market do X before the binary expires?
If you're right at the time of expiry, you win. If you're wrong, you lose.
Step 1 - Choose a market and the appropriate binary type, based on what you think will happen.
Step 2 - Select your timeframe
Step 3 - Choose your stake and work out your maximum potential profit and loss

How are IG binaries priced?
Our binary prices are based on the behaviour of an underlying market, but set by our dealing desk. Each binary is priced between 0 and 100, according to three factors:
This means that if you think you’re a better judge of volatility than us, you have the opportunity to back your judgement.
What special binaries can I trade?
We offer IG binaries on a number of major economic indicators, such as US non-farm payrolls and US initial jobless claims. You can also trade politics-based binaries around special events, such as the elections.
The fast-moving nature of IG binaries provides the possibility of short-term gains, alongside any potential losses. Although binaries are limited risk, you should be aware that there is still the potential to make substantial losses as well as gains.
