You’ll be glad to know that trading Forex Strike Option closely resembles crypto Strike Options. Strike Options is a CFTC-regulated derivatives product which allows you to potentially profit in just five minutes by predicting whether the price of an underlying asset will be higher than a specified price after that amount of time. Forex Strike Options is offered by Crypto.com | Derivatives North America.*
For example, if you believe the price of EUR/USD will exceed US$1.10 in five minutes, you can purchase a “Yes” option, with clearly defined risk and potential profit levels.
Conversely, select “No” to open a short position if you believe EUR/USD’s price will not exceed US$1.10 in five minutes. You can even exit your position early to secure your profit or limit risk.
Forex contracts in Strike Options are priced at US$100 per contract, and are open for trading 23 hours a day, five days a week**. Five minute and 2 hour contract turnaround times are available.
