What is a “Pairs Option”?
With “Pairs Options” you do not invest on whether the price of a single underlying asset will rise or fall, but rather you invest on which of the two underlying assets in a pair will perform better than the other. The relationship between the assets is the most important factor.
How to trade a “Pairs Option”?
First select one of the underlying assets. The actual price relationship between the two assets can be seen on our platform.
1. Expiration time
You decide when the option should expire. This means you decide when your prediction should be evaluated.
2. Amount of Investment
Enter the amount you are willing to invest.
3. Call or Put
If you think that the first underlying asset will achieve a better performance than the second underlying asset until the option expires, then you should open a call option. If you think that the second underlying asset will achieve a better performance than the first underlying asset until the option expires, then you should open a put option.
You have determined all of the factors and your Pairs Option is now complete.
How is the outcome determined?
At your selected expiration time, it will be automatically checked if your prediction was correct. The actual price at the time of expiry will be taken and compared with the price of the asset when the option was opened.
A correct prediction leads to the reimbursement of your initial investment plus the agreed upon payout. An incorrect prediction leads to the loss of the initial investment. In the event that the opening and expiry prices are the same, your initial investment will be refunded.
