In trading, or in the financial industry altogether, we have noticed a slight shift in the terminology which is used for binary options. Brokers have increasingly started to refer to this financial instrument as “digital options”. The term “digital options” isn’t very new at all and was used in the past for binary options by big forex companies, alongside the terms “all-or-nothing options” and “fixed return options” which are used on the American Stock Exchange for the same financial instrument as binary options. Overall, it could be said that digital options are a type of binary options, where you choose between two options: Call or Put, and predict whether the price of an asset will go up or down. These trades are usually made on trading platforms of American brokers, who are regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Why has the term “digital options” now gained popularity outside of the USA as well?
