IQ Option Review

Visit Broker

IQOption (or also iq option) is one of the newer binary options brokers. You can find their review on this page. IQOption may be interesting especially to more experienced traders who want to try their newly built strategy. That’s because IQOption offers, apart from a completely free binary options demo trading mode, also different types of graphs, i.e. candlestick charts and lots of useful indicators. You don’t see that often with other brokers.

It’s the fastest growing broker that, as of today (July 2016),  accounts for 11 million active traders. Another interesting fact is that the broker will start sending you emails after completing the registration. You’ll receive approx. 10, in the first month. These are emails that should teach binary options trading. You’ll find out what’s hedging,  rollover, and so on. Interesting, but some of you might find it a bit spammy.

IQ Option binary options demo

IQOption is very famous for their demo account, that can be opened in a few seconds. Simply click on the green button Visit broker below and then just press “Login With Facebook“. The trading account will be set up immediately and you are ready to trade.

IQ Option demo account is, however, slightly limited! Profit in the demo account is reduced to 50-60% and the number of trading assets is not the usual 77, but 15. Still, it’s good enough just to test the platform. And you won’t ever want to try another broker. 🙂

IQ Option Platform

IQ Option has a very interesting custom made platform, which you’ll love right from the first use. They have developed it specifically for themselves, not like most of other brokers. Meaning that no other broker can use this platform. For example broker BDSwiss or broker Banc de Binary use the identical SpotOption platform, with just a slightly different look.

IQ Option Platform description

IQ Option has a swift platform with nicely customizable charts.

The picture above gives you a look at their platform. Using the mouse scroll wheel zooms the graph in and out, you can also move the graph by dragging the mouse. Buttons on the bottom left are used for adding indicators, trend lines and similar things that have, so far, been possible only in  Meta Trader. Personally I have never seen a binary options platform that customizable.

  • A: Trader’s insight
  • B: Expiration time choices
  • C: Selecting the trade size (trades from only 1 USD!)
  • D: Open a PUT option or a CALL option

A very interesting feature that not only IQ Option, but lately also other brokers have started implementing is favorite assets section. You can choose your favorite assets and have them displayed at all times so you don’t have to look for them for minutes before opening a trade. Have a look at the favorite assets window below.

IQ Option Mobile App

Ever since its launch in 2013, the broker IQ Option has been undoubtedly one of the most innovative binary options brokers. With every new technology launched, IQ Option pushes binary options trading to the next level. And IQ Option’s mobile apps are not an exception. You haven’t tried any mobile application for binary options trading yet? I can assure you that this one you are going to love. Why?

  • It is the best mobile application for binary options trading you can find on the market (IQ Option broker was awarded a price for its application).
  • It’s platform is extremely user-friendly and has great graphics.
  • The IQ Option mobile platform is extremely fast and it is not surprising that most traders use the mobile platform more that the desktop one.
  • The application is very well secured so your money and personal data are safe + you can set up to log in with your fingerprint. I am sure that a lot of traders will appreciate it.
  • It also offers notifications, so you are not going to miss any tournament, nor any other IQ Option event.

IQ Option’s VIP account

In IQ option, all smaller traders have the so-called standard account. This means that they are active traders, but all their deposits combined don’t give a total of $3,000. However, if one’s deposits, in single or multiple payments, exceeds $ 3,000, they’ll be assigned a VIP account. What does that mean?

What is a VIP account

Having a VIP account brings many advantages. Some of the benefits are:

  • High-yield assets that can make their profit reach up to 89%!
  • Special deposit bonuses that can increase our deposits by  50%
  • Access to the Educational Section prepared by experts from IQ Option (Lessons on money management, using indicators, a list of 21 mistakes that inexperienced traders do and so on)

Binary Options Tournaments of IQ Option Broker

Other innovative features, which IQ Option Broker brought to the world of binary options trading, are Binary Options Tournaments. There are not a lot of brokers who offer to enter tournaments and the truth is that IQ Option Broker tournaments are the most sophisticated ones. It is pity, that binary options brokers do not develop the tournaments a little bit more. I think that it is a perfect way to bring a lot of entertainment into trading and at the same time it is also possible to a lot of money.

How Do Binary Options Tournaments work?

  • The participation in the IQ Option tournaments is not free. To enter a tournament you have to pay an entry fee which ranges from USD 5 to USD 20.
  • When you pay the entry fee, you get a predetermined amount of virtual money. Most of the times it is 10,000 or 100 USD.
  • Each tournament differs in its duration. It can take a day, a week or a month. It depends on the particular tournament.
  • The aim is to make as much profit with your virtual money as you can. The trader with the biggest profit gets the biggest price.
  • The prices depend on the number of the participants of the particular iq option tournament. The more participants the bigger prices. However it is also possible that the prices are fixed for every position in the ranking in advance.
  • If you lose all your virtual money, it is possible to recharge them for a cost of the entry fee.
  • Some of the prizes are one hundred times the entry fee. In ten minutes and with minimal costs you can earn a lot of money.
  • If you are interested in binary options tournaments and want to know some extra tips about tournaments, read this article: IQ Option’s binary tournaments

Below you can see how such tournament might look. I explained there in details all necessary information, so you can easily enter the tournaments and nothing will surprise you.

IQ Option trading strategies

Broker IQOption offers various tools and functions in their trading platform. Among these, there are also IQOption strategies. You can find them directly on their web page and they are developed by this broker. Everybody knows that for successful trading you need a strategy. Whether we like it or not, not having one is going to make an impact on our trading results. Even the developers of IQOption trading platform know that and that is why they add this section to their web.

All the strategies which you can find on the web have its own video tutorial. You can learn how to use the binary option strategies and you can save a lot of time of studying them. All the video tutorials, which IQ Option Broker offers, you can find directly in your trading platform on the right side.

I strongly recommend trying these IQ Option strategies:

  • The Three Black Crows Strategy
  • The Rebound Line Strategy
  • The Rainbow Strategy

These strategies are not the simplest ones, but I think that an advanced trader should handle using them. Anyway, in the video tutorials, you can find also some basic strategies for trading binary options. For example, there is trend line strategy, Bollinger bands strategy, etc.

More info + video tutorials about these unique strategies: IQ Option’s successful Binary Options Strategies

IQOption and their bonus

Asking for a bonus with this broker is somewhat easier and more transparent than with other brokers. Everyone who ticks the box bonus when making a deposit will receive it . You can choose from  25% to 50% bonus depending on your deposit size. Nothing more, nothing less. This bonus must be wagered 35 times. (What is bonus wagering?)

Since December 2016, IQ Option no longer offers a trading bonus. Here’s why: Big changes for the start of 2017

IQOption experience

IQOption and their advanced platform (definitely the fastest and the most advanced and reliable platform on the market) make binary options trading a game. Their platform beautifly highlights all winning trades, sends you a notification even when you’re not directly on the page of the broker, all accompanied by sound alerts and the graphs can even be edited like in Meta Trader 4 …

The minimum investment $10 and $1 minimum trade also makes a difference. Sometimes, when I’m bored, I log into the iqoption platform just to do a couple of 1 dollar trades. Because with their platform, it’s fun.

Yet, all this wonderful trading could be bad. Don’t forget that trading is a real business and apart from earning the money, you can also lose it. Good luck

  1. Hi, which one would you recommend, IQ Option or Stockpair? I am between those two and I would like to start as soon as possible. Thanks.

    1. Hi Erik, depends on your trading strategy.. For some people who are just starting out, IQ Option might be a better choice, because you can start with as low as 10 USD. With Stockpair, you have to invest 250 minimum.. I like both of them, but IQ Option’s platform is quicker 😉

  2. Hi traders! I’m thinking about registering with IQ Option and I would like to know the withdrawal fees. Thanks a lot.

    1. It is written in the IQ Option review. You don’t have to pay anything; there are no fees and no limits. Isn’t it great? You don’t have to pay for your withdrawals.

    2. I saw that on another websites about binary options. It was mentioned quite often, but those posts are about a year old. So that’s the problem I guess.

    1. Even that can happen, but as you say, you have to try it again. IQ Options is really great broker and trading with this broker is so easy. Surely it helps you to get your money back. Anyway, the most important factors are your trading abilities. Let us know how you are doing.

  3. As I said before – IQ Option’s a great way to trade binary signals from the real signals provider (their demo accont reflects the current market situation so you can use it to test signals and not lose money)

  4. Hi everyone. I would like to ask, has anybody VIP account from IQ Option? I am about to deposit 3000 USD so I should be eligible for VIP account. In the review you mentioned that then you have more profit % and another benefits. Is that true? I just want to check, if it’s not a scam or something like that just to make people deposit more money. Thanks in advance.

    1. Hey Bic in the past months Ive deposited way over 3k and Ive received everything and anything that was promised. GL and HF with that

  5. IQ Option broker is absolutely fantastic. The best is that they are not calling you all the time unlike all the other brokers. Once there was one guy from another unnamed broker calling me 15x a day. You can imagine how ‘happy’ I was.

    1. Hi. You are absolutely right. Mostly unregulated brokers are calling to their client a lot. IQ Option should be proud because they are not calling to anybody. On the other hand they send e-mails. Anyway e-mails are not so bad and some times you can use them. You can get tips for technical analysis and so on. You can also unsubscribe any time you want.

      1. Exactly as you say Jpro. Their emails are quite helpful. I wanted to unsubscribe, but then I get some emails with some interesting tips, so I said to myself ‘Why?’ Also the IQ Option support is great. I always get my answer when I need it.

  6. I am thinking about starting binary option trading because I kind of like it. For the last weeks I’m reading about trading and I’m learning, how to trade. I would like to know, if IQ Option broker is suitable for beginners? What do you think? George? Stephen? Thanks for your tips guys.

    1. In my opinion, if you have a good computer and not totally old one, you are not going to have any problem trading with IQ Option. Why I am saying that. The IQ Option platform is great, but it requires better equipment than other platforms. Another plus, maybe the most important one, is the free demo version. You can also start trading with just one dollar, and that is great. So the answer is Yes, I definitively recommend you IQ Option from the beginning.

  7. Hi, everyone. I am using IQ Option for two months now, but I am still getting to know the platform and learning how to use it. Unfortunately, I have very often problems with opening my position on options with very probable profit result. The broker is not accepting me because of ‘high volatility’ and offering me to open another option instead (another time and trend). I just get this notification that my option was not accepted. I am trying it again and again, maybe fifty times, and nothing. I always get this notification. Anyways, when I immediately try to trade reverse option with small win probability, my trade is accepted without this notification. Suddenly there is no problem with volatility, time period or deposit amount! And that did not happen just once or two times, but almost every time when I get the notification. It’s a dirty trick, don’t you think? Anybody else has the same problem? Thanks, Biker

    1. Hey biker. It might be caused by their server imbalance – which is caused by their robots. All that system with hundreds of thousands of robots is very slowing down their servers, or at least I think so. That is why they chose to close the robot system in the past few days. BTW are you using the online app, or a downloaded program? Thanks

    2. Hi! I also had the same problems. Anyway, IQ Option offers two platforms (one is web based and one is downloadable app). When I had the problem, I just started the other platform (the web based one for example) and everything was OK. Hope it helps. SP

  8. Hi everyone. I guess all of you have a lot of experience. I am a beginner and I’ve just signed up with IQ Option. I want to ask you, do you have any tips on how to predict the results??? Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi. I am trading for about half year now. At the beginning, it is quite difficult. When you made the minimum deposit of $10, you can’t expect to have $1000 in one week. That’s the mistake I could see my friends are doing a lot. They expect too much. I recommend you to deposit 200 bucks at the beginning or even $500 if you can afford it. Trading is going to be much easier for you then. I hope it is helpful.

      1. I agree. The first time I made a deposit of $20 and lost it the same day. Then I deposited $250 and it was totally different. I trust IQ Option so I am not worried about my money at all.

  9. Hmmm… IQ Option seems really professional and I am probably going to try it. I do like their platform a lot. It is quite easy and well designed. I was trading with Topoption before, but their platform is awful. Nothing like the platform of IQ Option.

    1. I am gonna register there in next days and give it a try, so I am gonna see, how IQ Option really is. Surely will give you some feedback then.

  10. Top broker and the best communication with support ever. My documents were approved within 12 hours, but the best part is, that their withdrawals are free. Other brokers have free withdrawals once a month and then you have to pay €30. Here you can withdraw every day and the amount you want (min. €10) and you don’t have to pay anything.

  11. IQ Option right? I tried with $50 and made some High/Low options. WOW. It’s the best broker out there. I didn’t send them my documents yet, but they already sent me my withdrawal money!! I withdrew 50 bucks to be on zero and now I have there $100 to make more profit. Yes, and THE REAL SIGNALS are absolutely error free.

      1. I’ve already heard a lot about The Real Signals and have read almost everything from Stephen, but I haven’t tried it yet. Anyway I do like that they’re not sending you the signals all the time. That they are waiting to send just the good ones.

  12. I tried IQ Option with $50 deposit and till now its going well. I made about $30 and now I’m gonna wait to have them on my account and will surely continue trading.
    Good luck in the future!

    1. It’s simple; they have a good app, demo version, and low deposit. With such broker, it’s such an easy work. I would say that this it the main reason, but I’m sure that IQ Option have a mass marketing campaign and they are getting more and more traders.

  13. Guys thanks, I think IQ Option is the only broker that can be trusted. And I have also seen some banners for Ayrex, it looks like IQ Option’s clone. Does anyone have any experience with them? Thanks

  14. Broker’s shows you the good way to trade if you meet the right one not the scammers,they are lot of scammers out there my financial life has taken turn in the right direction ever since i started trading in binary can earn money easily in binary if only you have the right strategy to trade

  15. I think there is no better broker than IQ Option… It’s just the best! Just asked for a withdrawal yesterday and it’s already on my Skrill account. I can recommend!

  16. I’ve been trading with BDB for the longest time, but i want to try this platform out.. I’m going on a long vacation to Poland next week, will I be to trade with them even tho I won’t be at home? Thanks
