On the financial markets, there are always two prices for each product and thus for each underlying asset. Firstly the price someone is willing to pay (commonly known as the Bid Price) and secondly, the price at which someone is willing to sell (commonly known as the Ask Price).
On our trading platform, both of these prices are displayed below the chart of the current price of the underlying asset.
The applicable open and close prices for currency pairs, commodities, and stocks are calculated using the following formula and the data as provided by Leverate.
open or close price=(Ask Price + Bid Price) / 2
Bid Price: The last known price for opening or closing an option, at which, according to Leverate, the underlying asset may be sold.
Ask Price: The last known price for opening or closing an option, at which, according to Leverate, the underlying asset can be bought.
An index can not be traded directly by a market player, as it is composed of several underlying assets. The entry and exit price here, when opening or closing an option, is calculated based on the prices of the individual underlying assets included in the index.
BDSwiss has simplified how the difference between the Bid and Ask price is displayed, so that the mid price is displayed on our platform. This is calculated using the following formula:
Mid Price = (Bid Price + Ask Price) / 2
Special Case: One Touch Options
The One-Touch-Options with weekly maturity can only be opened outside of the normal trading hours as well as on weekends starting on Saturday at 13:00 (GMT+1) until Sunday at 21:00 (GMT+1).
With One-Touch-Options, prices of the underlying assets are measured daily at 17:00 (GMT+1) and compared with the target price of the corresponding One-Touch-Option. If this target price is reached, the option expires at the end of the week, and the trader receives the agreed upon payout. If the target price is not met, the option expires with a loss of the invested capital.
The One-Touch terms and conditions are a supplementary addendum to BDSwiss existing terms and conditions as written on our website and by no means impair or replace them in any manner whatsoever.
The formula for calculating the actual price of the One-Touch-Option is as follows:
Actual Price = (Ask Price + Bid Price) / 2
