How It Works

60 Seconds is the absolute fastest tool you can use to access the financial markets and generate returns. The tool lets you benefit from small price movements, which you would not have been able to capitalize on if you were trading using an hourly or daily time frame.

This tool is also perfect for beginners because it only requires a basic knowledge of the financial market. The concept behind 60 Seconds is simple: Will the price of an asset move higher or lower than Strike Price by the chosen Expiry Time?

For example, let’s say USD/JPY is trading at 113.882 at 10:00 GMT. If a trader uses 60 Seconds, he or she will have to predict the performance of the currency pair in the next 60 seconds or so depending on the chosen expiry time. The longest expiry time is 5 minutes.

The trader speculates that the price of the underlying asset will rise by Expiry Time so he or she places a CALL option. The payout percentage is 70% and the trader invests $15 on this trade. One minute later, if the price of the currency pair is 113.885 at Expiry Time, the trader wins the trade and $25.50 is credited to his or her account.
