The anyoption™ site was launched in February 2009. Being 100% web based means it does not require any software download and adhering to their strapline of ‘anyone can trade’ they have created a site geared at beginners wanting a user friendly, uncomplicated experience of binary option trading.
anyoption™ offers binary options on 110 underlying assets covering the USA, European, Asian and Middle Eastern markets, making it an extremely diverse and internationally attractive site. For the non English speaker, the fact that the site is also displayed in 9 languages, from French and German to Chinese, makes it a highly beneficial and appealing platform for trading.
anyoption™’s unique feature is that 15% of the option’s investment is paid back even if it expires out of the money. Refunds are normally not given in binary option trading so this increases the site’s desirability. The technology they use ensures that transactions are speedy and most importantly, totally secure. Their returns on in-the-money options are high at 71% (or even 400% for the unique one-touch options ), ensuring they stay at the top of their game and remain competitive.
