How We Rank

We don’t want binary traders to feel misled by information that binary brokers deliver, and that means being upfront, honest, and providing them with the information that they need to make informed decisions. For this reason, we have developed a unified approach to rank brokers, including 3 stages:

1. Data Collection

2. Ranking methodology

3. Fighting Scam

How we collect data?

Our team of expert traders have developed a database of binary option brokers websites using manual and automated web-crawling tools. We also collect data by user generated requests for Scam investigations.

Ranking Methodology

In order to avoid manipulation of our results by dishonest brokers, we do not fully disclose the ranking factors we use. The main ranking factors we use include, but are not limited to:

– Withdrawals: should be up to 5 days for EXCELLENT grade;

– Low number of complaints (we receive 100+ complaints per day in our site);

– Accuracy of Promotions advertised: should be accurate, ethical and non-disruptive (see how we rank broker ads);

– Complaint handling (we act as a mystery shopper and submit complaints): Broker should respond to complaints & resolve issue in maximum 1-2 days;

– Deposit options: the broker should have at least 3 e-wallet providers for EXCELLENT grade;

Payouts: the lowest payout should be minimum of 80%;

– Financial Regulation: should have CySEC License with verification link;

– Broker Minimum Deposit – should be $200 or $250 for EXCELLENT grade;

Broker Popularity metrics – should have a stable growth, preferably with no spikes in search volume according to Google Trends. Spikes are interpreted as a bad ranking factor, since it may be caused by search terms related to scam cases. We thoroughly check spikes and why they occur to verify the broker is 100% safe and update the information on our site accordingly.

Fighting Scam

Every month, 10-25 of useless scam brokers are created. We fight scam through a combination of automated tools and manual review. The automated tools include, but are not limited to, web crawlers, automated trading software, etc. For manual reviews, we open a real account with the broker in question and act as a mystery shopper client. We record the data and publish it on the relevant sections of our website. Tracking of actual stock and currency exchange data feeds vs what the broker uses is key to finding out scam brokers.

How We Rank Promotions:

The most common method of scamming traders is through promotions. That is why we personally check and verify all promotions before including them on our site. We strictly prohibit:

– Promotions that prompt users to initiate a purchase, download, or other commitment without first providing all relevant information and obtaining the user’s explicit consent;

– Promotions that represent the broker,  its products, or its services in a way that is not accurate, realistic, and truthful;

Our Message to Binary Brokers

Ethics matter! In every business it is crucial for both the buyer and the seller to feel satisfied with what they receive. We highly encourage binary options brokers to provide ethical services to clients in order to maintain a fair and scam free industry.

Our Message to Traders

There is no free lunch. If something is too good to be true, it probably is. We remind you to always stay realistic and make your research before investing in binary options. Choosing the right binary option broker imposes a high level of risk and you should carefully consider how you choose your broker. If necessary, submit a scam investigation request or seek independent help.

  5. Is Quantum Code a scam or is it real?

  6. Ben, Thank you for your reply to my previous question about bandb markets. You recommended 24Option as a reliable Broker.
    I would like to trade with a robot, as I do not have the skills nor time to trade manually.
    Could you recommend a suitable robot and broker for a beginner? – say BinaDroid and 24Option?

  7. I just wanted to thank you very very much ….you have just saved me from making a huge mistake!! I just started to open an account with Brit Method and got a phone call within 5 mins of entering my name, email and telephone number. After the phone call I was uneasy and typed in Brit Method Reviews ….OMG!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
    I told the caller that I was in a meeting until late afternoon and could not deposit fundstoday as I was busy.She was quite pushy which is what made me uneasy and was not answering questions properly. She kept insisiting that I deposited funds this afternoon and send her a screen shot to show her that I had done this. your wesite is fabulous x
