You pay a trading fee on each side of your trade: once to open and once to close.

To enter a trade, you will be charged $1 per contract, up to $50. If your order is for more than 50 contracts, you won't be charged more than $50. 

You exit the trade in one of two ways: by placing a second, opposite trade or by letting the binary option or call spread contract expire.

If you exit the position before expiration, you’ll be charged a $1 trading fee. As with the entry fee, you will only be charged up to $50, even if your order is for more than 50 contracts.

If you hold a binary option position until expiration and it is profitable ($100 per contract) then you’ll be charged a settlement fee of $1 per contract to close. This fee is not capped at $50.

If you hold the position until expiration and it closes out of the money (zero), you won't be charged a settlement fee.
