Fair Binary Options takes great effort in reviewing brokers by taking a detailed and expert approach towards testing brokers. Strict criteria are applied, and only the best brokers with impeccable reputation can get FBO tested brokers certificate or maybe even an award.
Each year we announce brokers who, not only did well financially but who provided the best service to their customers as well. High ethical standards are always rewarded, as they are proof of a good broker, and with so many scam brokers on the market it is always good to know where to take your money. Top Brokers are always a great choice, as they offer superb service to their customers. Among our Top Brokers, it is impossible to find a foul broker, as they are all carefully tested and reviewed and proved themselves to be trustworthy and serious. At first sign of fbinary options fraud we will mark them as blacklisted or bad broker.
In 2015, Fair Binary Options added ‘Secure Binary Broker Certificate’ to our award portfolio. This certificate is available only to the brokers who achieved our high standards we set through the years in order to make the trading environment safer. The certificate is awarded for a certain time period and reevaluated every season so that brokers who want to keep it must put continuous effort into providing good service.
When choosing the right broker, one must first take his own preferences into consideration as there is not a single broker that suits everyone. One of the main criteria while choosing a broker should be a modern and technically advanced trading platform that is user-friendly at the same time. An effectively designed interface that gives a clear overview over the trades placed, as well as modern tools and most popular assets and expiry times, can only be a positive side of the broker. If you are looking for broker with overall great features, we recommend Banc De Binary that won FBO Best Broker award 2015.
Binary options trading is fast and dynamic so a good platform can be of crucial importance and all our top brokers are proud of their platforms. Most of them use reliable SpotOption or TechFinancials platforms that are safe and additionally encrypted for safety reasons, but there are many brokers who have developed amazing proprietary platforms. Find list of SpotOption brokers.
It is also advised to choose a broker that offers a variety of banking methods, as this enables easier transactions while making deposits or withdrawing money. Choosing a broker that offers a method the potential trader prefers, makes trading much more pleasant, easy and less concerning as the user is already familiar with the process. Some of the most common banking methods are Skrill, Neteller, credit cards, debit cards, bank wire… Brokers featured on our Top Brokers list provide a great selection of banking services for depositing and withdrawing money.

Most of customer complaints we receive are connected to withdrawing process, as many foul brokers ignore their customers’ requests, retract them and usually create a whole set of complications connected to their unethical behaviour. We never received such complaints about brokers on out Top Brokers list, as they always do their best in order to provide excellent customer service and resolve problems in a way that will make their customers happy.
Many traders encounter various problems, but the inquiries with our Top Brokers are never serious accusations or complaints, but some every-day problems traders can face during trading. With our brokers withdrawals are executed the proper way, safe, easy, and as fast as possible.
For traders who prefer extremely fast withdrawals, we recommend GOptions, a broker who won FBO Fastest Withdrawal Award 2015. To find out more about withdrawal issues, read our article on popular binary options scams. To see brokers that caused withdrawal issues in the past, visit the blacklist.
As it can bee seen in the table above, all Top Brokers provide generous bonuses that can be used for trading and generating bigger profit. The amount of bonus may vary from broker to broker and depend on the deposit made, but remember that our top brokers will never add a bonus to your account without your authorization. As bonuses are sometimes used as a means of blackmail, CySEC created a set of rules about adding bonuses and brokers on our Top List are following them without exception. More about CySEC rules on bonuses is available in our post.
Additional education materials are a good way for brokers to improve, whether in the shape of reading materials, webinars or videos. These are often used by beginners and experienced traders who want to improve their trading strategies and make more profit or simply learn more about binary options trading. There is no better guarantee for a successful trade than a good education, and there is no better prove for serious broker than great learning materials provided to the customers as it shows honest dedication to customer’s success. It is also important that a broker has good customer service like HighLow has, as this broker won FBO Best Support Award 2015.
