Types of Custom Bets
All Custom Bets we offer are limited risk and provide a choice of expiry ranges to suit the short or longer-term trader.
Fast Bets enable you to take a position on the future direction of a market over a very short period of time.
Decide if you think a market will be higher or lower than it currently is within your chosen timeframe – from two minutes to two hours.
Binary Bets are an exciting way to deal in both fast- and slow-moving markets.
Decide whether a market will be higher or lower than its current level when the bet expires. Your timeframe ranges from one hour to five days.
With OneTouch bets you choose a level you think your chosen market will touch before a specified expiry time.
If the market reaches this level before the bet expires, you make a profit. If it doesn't, you will lose your premium.
With our NoTouch bets you select the level you think a market will not touch before a specified time.
If the market touches this level during the specified timeframe, the bet closes and you lose your premium. If it doesn't, you profit.
