So, for example, if you put £10 into a binary trade which is offering a 70% return, if you win you would receive £17 (£10 initial stake + £7 profit). If you had put £100 into the same trade then your payout would have been £170. However, it’s worth remembering that if the trade didn’t go as you’d hoped, then the more you’d put into the trade, the more you’d lose. So, carrying on our previous example, if you had put in £10 you would lose just the £10, but if you’d put in £100 you would lose the whole £100.
Alternatively, up until a certain point within the trade you’d be able to end it early. So if you’d put that £10 into the trade as described above, and you were currently in a winning position, then you could decide to close the trade at this point instead of risking it turning against you. If you’d stayed in the trade and it had closed in your favour at the pre-set expiry time, then at that 70% level of return you would have received £17. By closing the trade early, you would only receive let’s say £13.50, but that £13.50 would be guaranteed were you to close the trade right now, whereas the £17 at the end of the trade carries a risk, since if the trade actually ends up going against you then you’d receive £0.
The opposite also holds true; if you were in the middle of your £10 trade and it wasn’t going in your favour, then you’d be on track to receive nothing back, losing your £10 in the process. However, if you instead decided to close the trade at this point instead of waiting it out and hoping for a turn in your favour, you could receive some of that (let’s say £5) back. You’d still make a loss of £5, but it’s better than staying in the trade, see it go against you, and losing £10. However, you should bear in mind that had you won you would have received £17, your original £10 plus a further £7. You would have to decide whether carrying on with the trade is a worthwhile risk at this point or not.
