Binary Options Regulation in Different Countries

Trading binary options in the U.S. and in offshore markets is quite different. Whereas binary options in the U.S. are strictly regulated and mostly offered on option exchanges such as the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) or NADEX, binary options trading in many other countries is mostly offered over-the-counter (OTC) and is sometimes not properly defined by law. Further, many regulated brokers operating outside the country do not accept U.S. traders.

If you are looking to trade binary options in offshore markets, here are some guidelines to help you learn more about regulations in different markets.
