What are IQ Option Classic Options?

When trading with classic options, traders also need to determine will an asset price go up or down, just as in regular binary options trading.

The main difference between classic and binary options is that in classic options, traders can close the trade whenever they want, without waiting for trade to expire.

Afterwards, traders need to select an asset to trade with (it can be from the regular asset list or from trending options list).

Once asset is chosen, traders only have to determine a number of assets they want to buy. The more options are added, more money have to be paid.

However, there are bigger chances to boost income.

With classic options, South Africans are able to buy a single option. Price of particular asset is based on several elements, such as market volatility and strike price. So the lower strike price is, less risky investment traders have.
