Binaries fee structure
In order to enter into binary option contracts, the client shall pay a premium which corresponds to the contract size. The premium is automatically debited by Dukascopy Europe IBS AS from the client account, prior to opening any option contract for the client. If the funds on the client's account are insufficient to pay the premium, Dukascopy automatically adjusts the contract size and/or rejects the client order(s).
The client understands and accepts that the market spread between the BID and the ASK price which exists for all tradable instruments negatively influences the probability of a gain. It should be noted that, in the case of Up option, the strike price of the option is based on the ASK but the relevant price at the maturity of the option, which determines if the option is In or Out-of-the-money, is the BID price. Inversely, for a Down option, the strike is based on the BID and the determining price at the maturity of the option is the ASK price. This means that, in order to be In-the-money, the price of the underlying shall move in the forecast direction more than the spread size.

On the basis of this agreement, Dukascopy Europe IBS AS receives remuneration from Dukascopy Bank SA in the amount of 2.5% of the aggregated premium amount paid by the clients.
