Since the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approved listing cash-or-nothing binary options in 2008, the popularity of binary options has soared, with the phrase “binary options” receiving more than 110,000 monthly searches in Google, as reported by GTNews.
As a method of trading, binary options is not without controversy; Gordon Pape wrote in Forbes in 2010 that “this sort of thing can quickly become addictive, especially to market junkies”.
