Protection Without Getting Stopped Out

Using a traditional stop-loss to limit risk still involves the risk of slippage. The forex markets are fast-moving, so you may get filled far from the price you wanted, with an unplanned, even devastating loss.

With forex binary options and spreads, your maximum possible loss is set before you enter the trade. You can't lose more if a trade goes against you. In fact, Nadex doesn’t issue margin calls. All trades are fully collateralized.

Most traders know the frustration of getting stopped out, only to watch the market move back into profit territory. With Nadex, you don't get stopped out, ever. Nadex gives you staying power. 

Trade the World’s Largest Market with a Small Opening Balance

Most successful traders start small, so they can learn. While the Internet is full of stories of people quitting their jobs to day trade forex after buying some course or system, they usually come with a disclaimer: “Performance not typical.” Success takes patience and practice.

That’s why we require a low initial deposit to fund your account. And why we don’t make promises like “unlimited profit potential." You know your maximum profit and loss before you place your order. This allows you to trade with precision and planning.


The Power of Forex Trading, Without the Potential Pain

For traders who use technical analysis, the Nadex platform offers a full, robust charting application. Use all your favorite drawing tools and technical indicators. You can use the price ladder on the right side to place orders right from the chart.

As you can see, Nadex offers a different and perhaps better way to trade your way. You get all the excitement of the vast, fast-paced global currency markets, with the confidence that comes from trading on a fair, transparent, regulated exchange. You get to limit your risk and stay in trades without getting stopped out when the market spikes.
