After a successful probation on Demo environment the new functionality of binary platform - Chained option contracts - has been released for Live trading.
Binary traders of Dukascopy Bank and Dukascopy Europe can now use two types of automated trading strategies: Winning and Martingale. In case of Winning chain with 3 contracts the trader risks only the amount of the initial contract, while getting the opportunity to earn up to 12 times more if all contracts expire in-the-money, according to the recognized trend. Conversely, Martingale chain aims at covering losses from previous unsuccessful contracts by automatically placing a new order with a doubled amount.

As can be read in online media*, "dukascopi" or "Mercure Services Ltd" currently pretends to offer brokerage services from Switzerland, at same place as Dukascopy Bank, which is untrue.
Be warned that this deceiving scheme has no relation whatsoever with Dukascopy Group. In our opinion this is a scam.
