Nadex uses a very robust and professional trading platform for binary options. They are a binary options exchange and not a broker, so they work with market makers and operate according to US Government regulations.

What confuses many investors traders when they first start trading at Nadex is the amount of options available.

For example; As you can see in the screenshot below.
The EUR/USD Forex pair is trading at $1.09051. The price for the $1.0905 call is $52.75, with a maximum profit of $47.25.
If you want to buy a PUT option on the Euro because you believe it will close lower than $1.0905 at expiration, then you would select SELL, and pay $45.50 with a potential profit of $54.50.
