How to trade:
1. Choose your asset
2. Make a prediction
3. Select investment amount
4. Trade (by clicking CALL or PUT)


  •  If EUR/USD is trading at 1.12052 and you predict the currency pair will be lower in the next 5 minutes and you want to invest $25?
  • Find EUR/USD in the broker’s asset list, select the time period of 5 minutes, enter $25 as your investment amount, click on the PUT (SELL) button and the trade is executed. The return on this trade is 85%.
    You’ve now predicted that the currency pair EUR/USD will be lower than the current level of 1.12052 in 5 minutes time.
  • After 5 minutes EUR/USD is trading at 1.12012, lower than the price 5 minutes earlier, when you entered the trade. Your trade gets closed automatically by the broker after the expiry of 5 minutes.
  • Since EUR/USD was trading lower as you predicted your trade is closed for a profit (known as in the money). The profit for a $25 investment with a return of 85% is $21.25 ($25 x 87% = $21.25) which is credited to your broker account almost instantly.
  • If your investment amount had have been $100 you would have made a profit of $85 on just this single trade.
  • There are different expiry times starting from 30 seconds to up to 5 minutes in Turbo Trading option.
