Editor’s Note – Why does OptionBit Suck in 50 Words

My main problem with OptionBit is that unfortunately, for several weeks, all my attempts of reading their “Terms & Conditions” has been in vain. No matter which browser I chose, I could not open the T & C. Their support said they were working on the problem and that it would be solved within 24 hours. Still, weeks later, I cannot access the T & C. A silly attempt of avoiding to show them to new customers or just an issue with the website, who knows? Whatever it is, it’s no first time it happened to me with OptionBit.

Why OptionBit doesn’t Suck

OptionBit trading platform, based on the modern technology of TradoLogic, is the best part about OptionBit. I like the simplicity of that platform, and that they are regulated. They recently added the Trader Insight tool to the platform and they improved the overall design of the website. They also have an Advanced Chart feature, powered by Netdania. From the looks of it, they are still trying to improve by offering VIP accounts and the Algobit but unfortunately it seems as if they’ve forgotten the “smaller things” such as being able to open a simple Terms and Conditions document on the website… Therefore there is not much more to say than that they are an average broker.

 

 

OptionBit Full Review – Beginner’s Luck?

Launched on May 2010, OptionBit “Premier Binary Options Trading Platform” offers user-friendly and mildly organized platform. Like most new Binary Options Brokers platforms, OptionBit platform is 100% web based (available on 10 different languages) and do not require any software to be downloaded. OptionBit trades on TradoLogic, and is protected by Godaddy SSL. OptionBit trading platform is based on the most advanced Binary Options trading systems in the industry, equipped with many efficient tools such as Range, Touch and Digital trade or other In-Trade tools like Close Now and Extend options. You can see multiple charts by clicking on the “Multi” button in the upper right corner of the chart.

 

OptionBit offers a variety of VIP accounts each with different services and perks. The best perk here is the 2 free withdrawals per month but the deposit amount of 10 000$ is way too high. There are other brokers that offer completely free withdrawals with much smaller deposits and even higher returns!

 

Not long ago, OptionBit introduced Algobit which is a software that enables you to trade manually or you can let the Algobit follow the signals it produces. I am not a big fan of robots and softwares as they usually just blow the account. Whether Algobit is any good remains to be seen.

 

You can trade Binary Options, Short Term, One Touch and Range on the platform and the asset’s index is pretty good, offering 69 assets. Instead of offering a refund on expired options you get to prolong your expiry by using the ‘Extend’ tool or close your position before it expires by using the ‘Close’ tool. The AutoTrade is a new feature that makes it easier for you to execute continuous trades in a trending market. This feature uses the winning Martingale system which is actually a good thing since it will only invest the winning sum each time it reopens a new trade. The trades will stop if a trade results in a loss.

 

Choosing a Binary Options Broker is not easy at all. Much research has to be done and every potential trader has to do his own Cons and Pros list to draw a certain conclusion. OptionBit still has its disadvantages. My final conclusion is that OptionBit should really decide to what direction are they going, and work hard to get there.

 

 

Is OptionBit Scam?

OptionBit is probably not a scam but if you ask me I would look elsewhere. I wouldn’t like depositing with a broker that after almost a month still has not managed to put a simple file containing their Terms & Conditions on their website. Of course this could be an issue with their website that they are indeed trying to fix and their support was kind enough to e-mail me their T & C. Still, I think such a major issue should be taken care of immediately. Luckily, OptionBit is regulated so if there is anything fishy about them you can always complain to CySEC.

OptionBit Complaints

One way of finding more information about a specific binary options broker is searching the broker’s name plus complaint, scam, fraud, etc. Lots of comments are untrue or maybe biased, some might be true. We at Binaryoptionsthatsuck do the research for you. Try it yourself.

 

I’ve scanned the web looking for complaints and scam accusations towards OptionBit. There are actually quite a lot of complaints against the company. Many of them concerning withdrawals. However, most of these claims are from people that were not aware of the Terms & Conditions that came with the bonus they accepted. But then again, it is the same Terms & Conditions that I couldn’t even view! Some traders complained in a few different forums about a problem with expiry value. Most of them later commented that OptionBit did fix the problem and gave their money back. There were only minor comments regarding withdrawal issues such as delays, yet, nothing special.

 

OptionBit Bonus

In the Promotions section, OptionBit informs us that the bonus is 30% for a $250 investment, 50% for an investment of $1000 and 75% if you deposit $10 000, while the wager is 20 times the deposit. In the FAQ section they inform the trader that the minimum deposit is of $200, a fact which clearly contradicts the “Promotions” section which clearly says it is $250. Too lazy to update their facts or are they unable to view their own terms and conditions themselves?

 

OptionBit Withdrawal

Here at Bots.com we care about withdrawal, even more then we care about depositing. At OptionBit, the maximum withdrawal for C.C cannot exceed the initial deposit amount (there’s a limit), same as many other brokers. OptionBit claims that a withdrawal should only take 7 business days if all of the required documents are sent and verified. Every account gets one free withdrawal per month. VIP (10K+) gets two free withdrawals per month. Any other withdrawals cost $30.

 

OptionBit Extras

One thing we liked about OptionBit is the one day 500$ virtual cash account. Unfortunately, one day is just not enough…An extra feature is the recently added Advanced Chart which we find very useful.

 

 

OptionBit Ratings

User Friendly 15/20

OptionBit website offers 100% based Tradologic trading platform. The platform isn’t the most user friendly trading experience but nevertheless, the site is nicely organized, clean and switching between asset categories is easy, especially since the recent improvements they did. Another downside is the OptionBit trading tutorial which is unattractive and not easy at all to read. Site is available in 10 languages.

 

No. of Assets and Expiry time 16/20

Total of 69 assets: 13 currency pairs, 4 commodities, 13 Indices and 39 Stocks available to trade is an average-to-high basket of assets in the Binary Options industry. Overall 69 assets, short term and half hour to a few hours’ expiry times is just enough to be considered a variety broker. OptionBit currently offers weekend trading, which makes the overall expiry time a little longer.

 

Commissions, Support and Effective return 12/20

The OptionBit Effective return adds up to 80%, which is between average to high compared to other Binary Options Brokers, but they do not offer any refund in case of Out-Of-Money. The OptionBit support is available via 4 international numbers in the US, UK, France and Spain, by email, call back request (international and multi-lingual) and the live chat which is extremely effective and answered within very few minutes.

Although they are quick to answer, the live chat is only available from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday to Friday. Also, at the moment of writing this review, they still haven’t solved the T & C issue as they promised. I never got to read it and if you can’t read it either, you should find another broker because knowing what you are signing up on is very important!!

 

Deposit, Payment and Bonus 14/20

Depositing is only available via credit cars or wire transfer or skrill. The minimum deposit is average compared to Binary Options Brokers- 200$ and the minimum trade amount is 10-20$$. OptionBit Bonus adds up to 500$ from the very first deposit, and the investor can purchase options for as much as 5000$ per option which is very competitive in the industry. Payment is available by credit cards. The bonus is up to 75%.

 

Website Extra’s 15/20

A good extra feature is the Extend and Close now options, which allows investors to extend or close a trade before the expiry time. OptionBit demo is available and enables amateurs to trade with virtual cash before they make real trades, however, it’s only available after the initial deposit. The best extra feature, added after the website update is the Advanced Chart feature which allows you to actually conduct technical analysis. Their newest feature is the AutoTrader and the Algobit software. With Algobit you can trade either manually by following signals that it generates or simply letting the software itself trade for you.

 

 

OptionBit Overall Score  72 + Regualted (+3) = 75/100

      I have had an account for a year or more, didn’t make any money, some bad weeks in the stock market I had just thought making a deposit. Well it’s not possible they are always increasing deposit and no having making a deposit once doen’t make a difference. It has gone from $100 to $200 to $500 to now $1000. Get real don’t waste your time with this one.

  2. Scammed By OptionBit says:

    Please be careful about Optionbit. Everything else seems rosy and well done on their platform as you get started not until they start manipulating your strike values. After trading for two weeks and increasing my balance from $800 invested to over $2000.00 suddenly I started loosing trades. Altogether I lost over $800.00 in a few hours. A closer investigation as to why my strategies were failing, I discovered that OptionBit had targeted my account and started manupulating my strke values. For example, their strike price for a CALL option was way above the current graph level making it extremely difficult to win any trade using any reasonable strategy. This was really heart breaking for me after having worked so hard and for many hours to build my balance with hopes of a cool wothdrawal. Bewarned, repeated follow-ups with support were met with slothful responses. I believe everyone in that outfit knows what is going on. They want you to loose and keep loosing. Yet they want you to keep funding your account. They are no different from pirates…reaping other peoples sweat. It’s a shame. This is broad daylight robbery. I would really stay away from Optionbit. Am loosing heart about binary trading. TOO many scams its hard to know who is real. Thanks Frank for this website it makes a difference. Wish i had found it sooner.

    Think they are scam, read the story above. He is right, they manupulate the entry course for a trade. Made a fake account to check those entries and then you got a complete other entryprice, that’s suspicious, so absolute a scam.

    Initially, I was happy with them except for the noted items in the review I completely agree with. I myself have not paid that much attention to the strike and closing prices that much but started to feel something may be a bit crooked feeling today actually.

    Thanks for the HEADS UP guys! I appreciate it. Now I will see if I can get my money out! This is very disheartening because I felt like they could have gone places.

    Successful Trading To You All!

    Another rip-off to avoid is VIP BINARY. Same format and they call you all the time trying to get you to invest 1000. I lost 1500 dollars from these places. I dont think I will seek this way of making money again!!

    Hi.I have questions regarding OptionBit. As a (total) beginner, it seems simpler. But what are the implications of it not being regulated? And did I understand your description of withdrawing money to mean that with a $100 deposit, I could only withdraw any profits in $100 increments, with a $30 fee for each withdrawal after the first one per month? Thanks!

    Have been trading with Optionbit for 4 weeks now, I am a total newbie. I consider myself to be a patient person, I was doing well made a profit of 500 pounds so decided to request a withdraw,thats when things changed, it became difficult for me to trade without making every trade a loss. Thought I would chat to someone about this asking about why there was such a big difference with rates/prices, operator answered my questions with questions i.e well what to you think is the problem or why don’t you tell me whats wrong. I feel this person either did not understand me or was being just down right horrible. I explained in detail what was happening but operator was not very nice, I logged off and am hoping I get my money back, as a newbie it was not a nice experience I will be looking elsewhere for another broker. PS Did not lose any money just found it impossible to trade anymore without every trade being a loss.

    Was anyone able to withdraw their profits from Optionbit? They definitely are a big scam. When I started making a decent profit, they started altering my strike values. I created a different account just to check and it was fine. Strike values were normal. I talked with support and they said that they have informed the Technical Services Team and asked me to wait, but I know this wont be solved. I made a withdrawal of all my profits. I hope it comes soon. So was anyone able to withdraw their profits successfully? I’m a little worried that they will never give me the money.

    I started with Optiobit with 100 euros, after reached 200 I started to loose. I spoke to my account manager and he told me to invest 400 euros more and he would teach me then. When I got 220 euros in my account I started to loose, several times for these spreads that most brokers do. I couldnt explain how I was loosing my trades with the price of the currencies being as I predicted before. Please beginner do not start with OptionBit. Do not make the same mistake as me.

    I made two successful trades on optionbit, but I only received $7.50 return on my $10 investment, and on my $25 investment I only made $18.75 on this investment.
    I’m going to cash out of this scam program, and look for an ethical business site. Thanks binaryoptionsthatsuck.com for the review on this company. I wish I had seen this earlier before I deposited my money, and they wouldn’t take a $100 deposit, even though they said they would.

    XPMarkets is another scam. They wait until your account balance approaches 200% of your initial deposit and start adding 20pip spreads to your entry strike prices, putting you initially 0.0002 out-of-the-money on all your trades.

    Their Terms and Conditions also make it so that you cannot recover your initial deposit without reaching 10x that amount in your account.

    I filed a credit card dispute to recover my deposit, but I will never be able to recover my profits, and neither will you.

    Stay away from XPMarkets, and beware of brokers on the Tradologic platform – that seems to be what all these brokers have in common.

    Spread the word!

    I have an account with OptionBit and on two separate occassions witnessed that I was in the money at the expiration and even indicated by their system the profit, but the profit was never credited to my account. When I checked the my trades column it indicated the trade as a lost. I emailed OptionBit Support and requested and explanation and credit of the profit but never received a reply from them. I am very disappointed in OptionBit and will find another broker.

    Lots of grief but after I eventually traded the limit required by the bonus that I didn’t get (very long story but don’t go for the bonus) I was able to withdraw the 200% profit (on my deposit) that I’d made – not without jumping lots of hurdles though. Platform is good and when the assets are available, I have no problems with execution. What really gets me is assets not being available to trade when I want to. I have a very high probability way of making good profit, a few days of the month, only to find I can’t trade what I want to when I log in. Support tell me the market is too volatile when the market is really going sideways in a tight range. I’ve also seen spreads on range-trades vary between one account and another – why should that be???? I don’t trust them at all but, at least for the time-being (and after about 14 months of having an account with them), will continue trading with reservations, when they allow me to … I’m only trading their money now, so have nothing to lose but my time. I’ve certainly had no problems with winning trades not being paid out, if when the win was only by a pip, so all credit to them for that.

    Thanks guys. Your reviews helped me a lot. I nearly stepped into the black hole. However, never open an account with topoption either. Even though they say that they are regulated, they are nothing but bunch of scams. My first 10 trades were successful with them making over hundred in 60sec trades. I’m an experience broker therefore I’ve got many spread betting accounts.so while I was trading with topoption, at the same time logged into my etx capital account to check if they provide me with real time price. For first 10 trades it was all fine.no hide n seek. So I have won 10 out of 10. Then suddenly I see two different pricing. My etx capital account shows one price and their platform shows another.which was frustrating so I stopped trading and withdrawn all my money back. After that incident I was looking for a different broker so landed here. After many researches on YouTube and Google. Thanks to you guys. You guys have saved me. Really appreciate that

    That totally happened to me a number of times, too! I didn’t realize why it was happening, but now I’m starting to think what some of the others here have been saying…that they are scam artists, even if most of their business is legit. Also, MANY times when attempting a trade I’ll receive the following message: “Your trade cannot be executed at this time. Please try again later.” What! But I want to trade…NOW! I talked to a rep about this and they explained that, due to market volatility some trades wouldn’t go through. They said they would ask one of the technicians to look into it, but I’ve yet to hear anything back from anyone. All I know is that trading on OptionBit can be very frustrating! You LOSE trades you saw yourself win (I’ve witnessed at least 4 trades I finished Green and In The Money on, only to see the balance in my account go DOWN and the closing history on my account show losses instead of wins), and you often can’t place a trade exactly WHEN you want to.
