1. Account currency

Currency of the funds accepted in your trading account.

2. Leverage

Leverage gives you the ability to trade a larger position using your existing capital.

3. Order execution

Order execution typically comes in two varieties: market execution and instant execution. With market execution, you will place an order at the broker’s price. You agree on the price in advance. There are no requotes with market execution.

What about instant execution? In this case, your order is placed at the price that’s available at that time. Requotes are possible if the price fluctuates a great deal before the order execution is complete.

4. Spread

The spread is the difference between the buy price and sell price. A fixed spread means that the spread will remain as it is no matter the market condition except in rare cases of extreme market volatility. A variable spread means that the spread is constantly changing, depending on the market condition.

5. Commission

Most brokers typically charge a commission for each trade that you place. Binary.com currently charges no commission across all account types, except for cryptocurrencies.

6. Minimum deposit

Most brokers require a minimum deposit. Binary.com doesn't require any minimum deposit.

7. Margin call

When the remaining funds in your account is unable to cover the leverage or margin requirement, your account will be placed under margin call. To prevent a margin call escalating into a stop out level, you can deposit additional funds into your account or close any open positions.

8. Stop out level

If your account is placed under margin call for an extended period of time, it will reach the stop out level where it is unable to sustain an open position. This will lead to your pending orders being cancelled and your open positions being forcibly closed (also known as “forced liquidation”).

9. Number of assets

Refers to the total number of available symbols for your account.

10. Maximum ticket size

Refers to the maximum volume or lots per order.

11. Minimum ticket size

The minimum ticket size refers to the minimum volume or number of lots.

12. Step size

Step size is the minimum allowable increment applied to all order types. It is the volume from which the increase of the position is based. You can only trade in the minimum ticket size or its multiples.

13. Cryptocurrency trading

Indicates the availability of cryptocurrency trading on a particular account.
