Binary Betting


Binary betting is a way to trade the markets by making yes/no decisions about whether a particular event will occur or not.

Every binary trade has a maximum profit and loss so traders know their upside and downside before placing a trade. The new GFT binary betting platform was designed specifically for binary traders.


Every aspect of the new binary betting platform, including the revolutionary DealWheel trading tool, has been developed in order to let investors react quickly to fast moving binary markets.

“As with all GFT platforms, the binary betting platforms is user friendly, well presented and backed up by excellent customer service,” stated a GFT customer during the beta launch of the binary platform.
