Types of Trades
As mentioned earlier, XP Markets.com provides their clients with three unique types of binary options to trade in, Digital, Touch and Range binary options.
The aim here is to decide whether the price of the asset will be above or below the strike price on expiration.
With this type of binary options, the trader has to decide if the selected asset will touch a predetermined price level before the expiration period.
For range binary options, all the trader has to do is to decide is the selected asset will expire within a preset range upon its expiration.

One good thing about XP Markets.com trading platform is the ability for a trader to “Extend” the expiration period of his trade if he feels it will be conducive to do so. He also has the ability to close his trade before the expiration of asset with the “Close” feature of the trading platform.
With XP Markets.com, the maximum return on investment is 81% for those trades which are in the money. Traders can make a trade with as little as $5 thus minimizing their trading risk.

- Fast execution of trades
- Simple trading platform
- High Returns on Investment
- Good Trading Simulator
- Limited Banking Options
- Lack of educational materials
In conclusion, XP Markets.com trading platform can still benefit with some minor adjustments to their trading platform. Although their strong point is the simplicity of their trading platform, the educational section can still do with some more materials to educate beginners on the risks that they can face trading binary options. Apart from the Spartan educational section, there are no major deficiencies in XP Markets.com trading platform.
