Trade all the markets you love

Stock Indices

You can trade US and global stock market indices without using ETFs or index futures and with lower fees than most stock or futures brokers charge.

With limited risk binary options and spreads, you know your maximum possible profit and loss up front. Instead of just watching your portfolio rise and fall with the market's fluctuations, you can turn those moves into opportunities to profit.


The largest market in the world by volume is currency exchange, with a daily turnover of four trillion dollars. Open 24/5.5, and decentralized across the global banking system, the forex markets offer unmatched liquidity and opportunity.

Nadex offers 10 of the most popular spot forex pairs as limited-risk binary options and spreads. You can trade them 23 hours a day, 5 days a week.


Oil, grains, and metals are basic to our lives, making the commodity futures markets among the largest. From a gallon of gas to a loaf of bread, commodity prices affect us daily. 

However, they can be risky for many traders. A $1 move in crude oil futures equals $1000 per contract. Binary options and spreads let you trade commodity futures prices with much lower costs and limited risk.


Economic Events

When economic reports come out, like the monthly nonfarm payroll number or the weekly jobless claims number, traders try to forecast the market's reaction. Nadex economic event binary options let you trade the number itself. If you think unemployment is going up, you can buy a binary option that can profit if the jobless claims number is above a strike price you choose.
