How Trading with More than One Binary Broker Can Protect Your Profits

Trying to choose a binary options broker is one of the first challenges you’ll face on your path to becoming a successful binary options broker. In a more established market, this probably wouldn’t be something you’d need to concern yourself about, but it may actually be to your advantage to pick more than one broker at this stage in the game. It’s extra work, but it can pay off. What are some of the ways that multiple brokers can help you to protect your profits?

  • Protect yourself from dishonesty. Sadly, at this point there are still a lot of dishonest brokers out there who are trying to rob their customers. This is largely because binary options are still so unregulated. There are some brokers who are very well known and have great reputations, but you may still be safer if you put your eggs in more than one basket. Would you rather deposit $250 with two different brokers and have one of them turn sour and the other be fine, or deposit $500 with the bad broker by mistake and lose it all?
  • Insure yourself against a company going out of business. Since so many binary options websites are small startup companies, you can’t necessarily depend on all of them to stay in business. Since these companies are largely unregulated, you can’t count on them to insure your money or keep your accounts separate from theirs, either. If you’re trading with a broker and it goes under, there goes your money — unless you have another account with a different company. Then at least you don’t lose it all.
  • Try out more than one broker at a time. If you try out two brokers at once, you can easily cross compare their features and service. Sometimes recognizing whether you’re working with a good or bad company is simply a question of having a solid basis of comparison. You might be able to make a more informed choice about a long-term company to trade with if you try it this way in the beginning.
  • Benefit from multiple bonus offers. If you are a trader who likes to accept bonuses, you will double your bonus opportunities simply by trading at two brokers instead of one.

Binary options trading can potentially become a lucrative business or hobby, but it is risky, especially in the beginning. Not all of that risk takes the form of uncertainty in the market. A lot of it also takes the form of ambiguity in the industry. Right now not many brokers are regulated, and many don’t even have a license to operate as a private bank or any other financial body, which means they haven’t secured your funds. Trading with a couple different brokers in the beginning can help you evaluate their quality and insure yourself against a total loss should one of the companies go south.
