Porter finance review

Owned and managed by a holding company known as Running Forest Partners Ltd, Porter Finance is the latest binary options broker to start operating in 2015. Based in London, this broker has caused a stir among the binary options trading community for being the binary broker that offers the highest welcome bonus for new account holders. In addition, they are also being the most service oriented broker around as well. In the words of their operations manager, “the company prides itself on excellent service and guarantees the best environment for success to our traders passing on our knowledge to traders in order to maximize their trading potential.”

Trading Platform

Porter Finance uses the ever popular industry proven SpotOption Gen 2 trading platform. One of the main reasons for the popularity of this platform among traders is the fact that this platform is so easy to use. Hardly any training is required for the operation of the trading platform. In addition, the platform is packed with useful trading features such as “Buy Me Out”, “Double Up” and “Roll Over”. However, the most exciting of the platform is the newly introduced “Market Indicator” feature. With this feature, traders can use choose between the RSI, Bollinger Bands or Moving Averages indicators to give them a better idea on the direction of the price movements.

Trade Types

As for the type of trading contracts available at Porter Finance, traders can choose from the six different types that are being offered. These include:

  • Classic Binary Options
  • 60 Seconds Options
  • Ladder Options
  • Long Term Options
  • One Touch Options
  • Pair Options

Of all the options contracts being offered, the most interesting is the “Ladder options”. With ladder options, binary traders can now execute the sophisticated ladder trading strategy with just a single click of the mouse. Previously, the execution of the ladder trading strategy requires the execution of multiple individual trades which is not ideal for a fast moving binary trade.

Payout Ratios
