External video Simona Weinglass on prosecuting binary options firms , Times of Israel , 3: Retrieved January 26, I was thinking of using them as I love their interface. Sadly, not enough user reviews online to confirm whether they're legit or not. Well if he has negative comments they must be good! Already tested it with a few people live for fun with my new micro ALGOs If I made a video of the live trades and results I would be the most popular person on the internet roflmao I will say that IQoption has done such a great job that all other binary option platforms look like a complete joke I have not seen anything better in bins..
Man that would make a good video Too bad, it's still another trader off limits to US traders. I thought they accept U. What gets me is the language used on the site compared to where it's registered to operate. Here's a problem I found. The times of MT4 and IQ don't match. When a 1 minute candle closes on MT4, IQ option is already 30 seconds into the next minute.
Not good for short term traders. Time does not change for anybody, are you sure? The only thing I have seen is they have that 30 sec window which can throw you off but what you can do is rewire your brain and focus on the time in MT4 which time is time and a constant at least from our point of view in this universe. I could tell you about displacement and how the universe really works mathematically but I don't want to hurt your brain.
Anyway point is you just have to watch the 30 second window before it switches to the next minute out.. Then match it up to MT4 and you will see what I am talking about, don't just use their platform to view the time.. It was a bit confusing at first. I got the hang of it now. Don't know what I was thinking when I typed that.
It's ok, even I get retarded from time to time too LoL.. Unfortunately my GF points this out way way too often February edited February Did they hire you to talk them up? Odds are you know 0 or have 0 interest in binary options.. There is a review on the site time will tell one thing to note is they don't accept U.
Hi guys, have been trying out this IQ option demo account for past month, seems that their forex assets for trading are changing everyday. Meaning some assets are open for trade on one day but then are closed on the very next day.

I kinda want to invest real money in it but I did some quick search for reviews, IQ Option's app on the Google Android App Store is getting overwhelming amount of 1 star feedback saying it's almost impossible to withdraw the money you make.
Has anyone had good experience using IQ Option or should I stick to a well established platform? Just as a follow up since I could not confirm my self I have been asking anyone i see using IQ about withdrawls, as of yet no negative responses. May edited May I received my payment on my account Skrill I do not understand why taking so long..
I have experienced myself sometimes the purchasing error.
