Software & User Friendliness

Ikko Trader uses the SpotOption white-label trading platform. This software is entirely web-based, and is the most widely used trading platform. The following binary options can be traded on Ikko Trader:

a) Up/Down: Payouts for this trade type approach 180%, and are determined by whether the trader’s bet on the asset ending the trade higher or lower than market price is correct. Expiry times are preset and are as low as 15 minutes up to one day.

b) OptionBuilder: This is the Up/Down trade type where the trader can set the expiry time according to the hours and minutes on a clock.

c) Touch Option: this option type is only open at certain hours of the day and is used mostly as a high yield contract with large payouts as much as 500%.

Security & Reliability

Ikko Trader’s headquarters is located in London, and so the company is subject to regulation from the Financial Services Authority (FSA). Regulation by the FSA requires all brokerages operating in the United Kingdom are required to keep all traders’ funds sequestered, i.e. traders’ funds are lodged in an account separate from that of the brokerage’s funds to keep them immune from any financial issues affecting the brokerage in the event that this occurs.

Special Features

The Ikko Trader platform has some special features such as:

1) The “Roll Over” function which allows traders to extend the expiry time on active traders.

2) Double Up function, which allows traders who want to increase the payout on a trade that they are sure by doubling their stake while the trade is still active.

3) Ability to receive very high payouts through the high yield trade types.

Our Opinion

Ikko Trader is one of the few brokers that took their time to increase the linguistic reach and appeal of their trading services. Many brokers claim to have customer support available in many languages, but lack a translator for their websites and platform. This issue was taken care of by Ikko Trader. In addition, Ikko Trader has a user-friendly website and a trading platform that is easy to use. The customer service department is also responsive and prompt when attending to issues raised by clients.

Ikko Trader has one of the most generous bonus/promotions program in the binary options industry and they deserve commendation for it. However, Ikko Trader needs to improve on its education services. There are hardly any learning resources for traders. It is logical that if you want clients to use your services, you need to show them how to do it. It is hoped that Ikko Trader can correct this anomaly in future.
