Binary Option Brokers Are Making the Move to Online Trading

Although many brokers have benefitted from the binary boom, increasing regulatory pressures mean the good days may be numbered.

The Binary Options industry has seen a lot of success over the past few years. An innovative product with aggressive marketing saw the industry expand at an incredible rate. Many brokers have done very well out of the binary boom, but these good times aren’t going to last much longer.

Regulatory Pressures

The industry has recently come under a lot of pressure. Both the regulatory status of binary options and the business practices of some members of the industry have drawn negative attention as of late. This will make both doing business and acquiring customers more difficult in the near future.

Astute brokers are looking for opportunities to expand into other industries. Many of them are choosing Online Trading. Contract for Difference (CFD) trading has a very similar target audience to binary options, but is more regulated, which means acquiring Banks often do not have the same objections to CFDs as they do to binary options.

Payment processing fees for online traders are usually less than half than a standard binary options related transfer. CFD traders also tend to have twice as long a lifetime value than binary options traders. This combination makes the Online Trading industry a very rewarding one.
