SpotOption Launches New CFDs Platform, and MT4 Plug-In

Leading trading technology provider, SpotOption, continues to innovate for online brokerages.

November, 2016 –  SpotOption announces the successful launch of the latest trading product, CFDs.  Contract for Differences have become one of the most popular forms of derivative trading online, and SpotOption’s CFD platform has captured the same user-friendly and simplified approach that has made SpotOption a world-renowned software provider focused on the trader experience.  The CFD platform allows for trading on stocks, commodities, currencies, and indices, in major markets around the world, with flexible leverages, no shorting rules or borrowing stocks, and professional executions with guaranteed stop-loss and take-profit. The platform’s transparency and risk control functions facilitate exposure management and responsible trading. SpotOption disclosed that certain specifications have been implemented into the platform, in order to comply with European regulatory standards.

Along with the new CFDs product, SpotOption also launched their MT4 Plug-In, which allows MT4 operators to automatically offer SpotOption’s prominent binary options solution to their traders directly within their MT4 platform.  The integration process is fast and simple, and it allows for account and wallet sharing.  The instruments and price feeds are through MT4, as are the deposits and withdrawals.  Traders can also use MT4’s Expert Advisor for binary options, as well as dozens of indicators and oscillators for binary trading.  This allows brokerages to attract a whole new database of binary traders, as well as diversify their portfolio for existing traders, without any additional steps, redirections, or set-ups.

“Our ongoing mission is to position our labels as industry trend-setters and leaders,” says David Ripstein, CEO of SpotOption.  “We have great expectations from the expansion of our technological offerings, and have already witnessed the demand for implementation by existing and new clients.  SpotOption will continue to strive to remain at the forefront of the FinTech revolution. ”

Binary Option Derivative Trading and the Fintech Innovation 

There is no arguing that there has been a major financial technology revolution over the past few years.  Only a decade ago, we were completely oblivious of crowd funding, peer to peer landing, Bitcoin, block chain protocols, and many more financial innovations.  One of the most innovative, and fascinating instrument that has been coined “the rising star” is the Binary Option.  Binary Options have played one of the most intricate roles in revolutionizing the derivative trading industry, by bringing it to the layman, to the masses.  No longer is derivative trading restricted to professional brokers or investors; the Binary Option has made it so that anyone can be a trader.

The Binary Option is actually a derivative product that has been used by professional investors for decades.  Comprise the bulk of the global OTC derivatives market with a national value of $500 Trillion.[1]  Just for comparison, the size of the global stock market is only $62 Trillion.[2]  The Warren Buffett company, Berkshire Hathaway posted $633m in gains from derivatives contracts last year, up from $329m in 2014.[3]  However, rising FinTech has created user-friendly binary option platforms, so that not only big investors can use derive instruments, but basically anyone with the slightest interest in the market who has a 3G signal.

Henceforth, the uprising of the retail derivative trader in the last few years is due to the progress in the technology infrastructure and cost reductions.  The average U.S. Internet speed has more than tripled since 2011 from 10 Mbps to 31 Mbps.[4]

The cost of cloud infrastructure has dropped more than 90% over the last decade.[5]

All of these changes and more have made trading derivatives available not only to fortune 500 companies and billionaires, but also for the regular internet surfer with a credit card.   Today there are millions of retail binary option traders who trade with online brokerages like Bbinary, 24option and IG (IG: market cap of 3 Billion GBP).

As the technology continues to develop, and to support the continuous and expanding innovate demands of retail derivatives, there is a movement of major companies joining the industry, such as the NYSE Amex Options platform. [6]

“The introduction of Binary Return Derivatives, or ByRDs, on NYSE Amex Options gives investors access to a new, simple income-generation tool with the same level of flexibility as standard listed options, plus a straightforward, fixed return,” said NYSE Head of Options Ivan Brown. “We’re excited to offer investors these innovative and solutions-driven investing tools.”

“We are living in an exciting time that the rapid growth of technology innovation keeps us alert every day.” says Ran Amiran, President of SpotOption.

Methodologies for Pricing Binary Options  Deriving the Binary option from a “call” or “put” spread strategy

Have you ever wondered how the pricing of derivatives works behind the scenes?  Pricing derivatives, and specifically binary options, is quite a challenge from the market making perspective.  With years of experience as a broker and market maker in the OTC derivatives market, and currently as the head of market making and risk analysis at SpotOption, I would like to provide some insight on how pricing works for binary options.   In this document, I will describe two main methodologies that we actively practice, each one with its own advantages and disadvantage.

Methodology 1:  Deriving the binary option price from market quotes of vanilla “call” or “put” spread

There are many variations of this well-known formula, the most popular is the classic B&S, for a “call” option:



In general, once you have the standard deviation, the spot rate and interest rate of any long term Vanilla option can be priced for a specific expiry and strike rate. A vanilla option is a simple option that allows the buyer of the option the opportunity (not the obligation) to buy an underlying asset at a predetermined price/strike price for a price or premium. This opportunity will have an expiry at a future and predetermined date. The following chart shows a call option that started with a negative value to the cost of the option, and increases as the underlying asset increases above the strike price:





The Seller of the option is on the other side of this zero sum game, and he receives a premium for the risk that is taken.
  If the price goes higher than the strike price, he will start to lose money as can be seen on the chart below:







A combination of buying a call option, and selling another call option with a higher strike price is often referred to as a call or bull spread strategy. A combination of buying a put option and selling another put option with a lower strike is often refereed to as a put or bear spread strategy.   An example of a call spread strategy looks like the chart below.





The premium for the call spread strategy is lower than a simple call option, however, the profit has maxed at the strike of the call option that has been sold. This strategy can be easily priced for options with maturity date longer than a week as the market volatility is well known.  A binary option (unlike the vanilla call option) gives a fixed payout for the call option. In many ways it looks like the call spread strategy where the strike of the call option sold is higher than the strike of the call option bought by a number so small that is close to zero.





So, when pricing a long call binary option, one of the possible methodologies is to buy call option at a strike of X and sell call option of a price of X plus 0.00000001. This methodology is robust where markets are liquid and quotes of options and standard deviations are available. This high liquidity can be found in assets with high volumes and expires longer than a week.

When pricing options for shorter period of times, such as “end of day”,  a different methodology can be used.

Methodology 2: Deriving the binary option price from a call or put spread when there are no market quotes  

  Unlike long term binary options (day, weeks or month), when trying to price  an option for a few minutes or hours, there is no well known and agreed standard deviation quoted in the markets. Therefore one should individually calculate the market deviation using the last known ticks.  For example, if we wish to price a binary option for 10 minutes we can manually calculate the standard deviation using best practice formulas:



The only question is, what time period should be taken when calculating this standard deviation? My experience has taught me that for single-hour options, the standard deviation should be taken based on up to 3 hours back-log, as long as you stay in the same trading session.  That is, if we are trading in the European session, we can create the standard deviation by looking at the last few hours as long as we don’t go before the opening of the main European markets. The advantage of this model is the ability to price the binary option using a standard deviation when there is no quotes in Reuters or Bloomberg terminal for those standard deviations. The disadvantage of this algorithm is that you quote an option based on a theoretical quotes, with no other market quotes to compare to, and if calculated incorrectly, it can lead to losses. 


Pricing short term binary options is quite a challenge, but can be done rationally. When pricing a short term binary option, one must calculate the volatility manually through known formulas and parameters optimization (as described in Methodology 2).  Pricing long term options, such as those that expire in days, weeks, and months is relatively easier.  One simply has to take a well-known formula, such as black and Scholes, and insert the spot market rate, volatility or the volatility surface, as well as the interest rates, and you price the call or put spread. The relevant data can be taken from different data suppliers such as Bloomberg or Reuters, or derived from exchange traded options.

Quotes of binary options, both for long or short term can be seen in exchanges of binary options or through the OTC market, such as the SpotOption Platform.

What Is a whitelabel

A white label is an independent operator that chooses to receive a license to use the SpotOption software. With the purchase of this license, operators receive all of the programs and services that SpotOption offers, fully branded to the look and feel of their choosing. This can either be as an independent operation or part of an already existing brand.

The White Label will then begin collecting revenues, and share a portion of it (commission) with SpotOption for providing them with their ongoing service and technology.

What are Binary Options?

Binary Options, also known as Digital Options, all-or-nothing options or Fixed Return Options (FROs) have been available throughout worldwide markets for many years. In 2008, the United States introduced binary options trading to the traders’ portfolio of financial tools. In 2012, they were officially deemed financial instruments by CySEC, Europe, which would regulate and provide licenses for compliant brokerages.
A Binary Option is in essence nothing more than a prediction of which way the price of a stock, commodity, index or currency will move by a designated expiry time. With Binary Options, a trader never purchases or owns the asset – he is only predicting the direction that the asset will go. There are only two possible outcomes, up or down, and the price of the asset does not matter.
For example, if the price of gold is currently 1500, will it rise or fall by 5:00 PM today? As far as a trader is concerned, all that matters is if his prediction was correct or incorrect. Binary Options are the simplest way to trade on the market.

SpotOption Adds “End of Year Expiries” & “Pairs” to Offering

May 4, 2012 – Leading Binary Options platform provider, SpotOption Ltd. now offers White Labels two new options – “End of Year”and “Pairs”.
SpotOption Ltd. announces the latest addition to their portfolio of offerings – “End of Year” and “Pairs”. SpotOption is known for constantly adding new and exciting features, making it the most advanced and successful binary options platform.
The “End of Year” option allows traders to take an option until the end of each month or until the end of December 2012. Within each calendar month, traders are also able to open positions for two weeks or other specific time periods. This feature opens the market to all types of traders, as SpotOption White Labels now have the longest span of option expiries – from sixty seconds to six months. This new feature allows the White Label to be very flexible to their trader’s needs.
The other new feature is the “Pairs” option, which allows traders to predict the relative ratio between two assets from the same equity type. With regular binary options, a trader would predict, for example, the price of gold. With “Pairs”, they will predict how strong or weak one asset will be as compared to another. For instance, a trader is able to trade relative strength strategies on financials, such as BNP Paribas compared to Barclays or Apple compared to Google. This trading is more exotic, giving traders the ability to trade on relative strengths or weaknesses and not absolute strengths.
“Staying ahead of industry trends is our responsibility to our white labels,” says Pini Peter, CEO of SpotOption Ltd. “Our developers work round the clock to ensure that we live up to our reputation of industry leaders.”
