    Discuss is for general discussions of a financial company or issues related to companies.

    Info is for things like "Has anyone heard of Company X?" or "Is Company X legit or not?"

    Compare is for things like "Which of these 2 (or more) companies is best?"

    Searching is for things like "Help me pick a broker" or "What's the best VPS out there for trading?"

    Problem is for reporting an issue with a company. Please don't just scream "CompanyX is a scam!" It is much more useful to say "I can't withdraw my money from Company X" or "Company Y is not honoring their refund guarantee" in the subject line.
    Keep Problem discussions civil and lay out the facts of your case. Your goal should be to get your problem resolved or reported to the regulators, not to see how many insults you can put into the thread.

    More info coming soon.

General discussions of a financial company
I have been trading with 2 brokers for a while and I have a smaller account with HighLow. Below I share my experience with them, all the advantages and disadvantages I have seen.

The platform is probably the simplest one I have seen across all competition. The price graph also highlights which direction the markets needs to move in order for a trade to win. This reduces the amount of trader mistakes. The firm use ‘High’ and ‘Low’ on the trading buttons (rather than Up/Down or Call/Put). No surprise here.

A negative of the trading area is the charts. There is little flexibility, features or options for technical analysis. This is a common fault among among binary brokers. Traders keen on technical analysis would be better off using separate charting software such as MT4 (MetaTrader4).


The range at HighLow do offer traders some good options. The list of assets is not as extensive as some rival brokers. These are likely to be added to as the brand grows.

These are the types of assets I traded but mainly stuck to the Turbos.

High/Low – Decide if the asset value will finish higher or lower than the current strike price. Expiry times of these go from 15 minutes up to ‘End of Day’ expiries.

High/Low Spread – Spread options differ in the payout and strike price. The basics remain the same as a standard High/Low trade. Payouts on the ‘spread’ options can reach 200%. You will however, need to make up the spread. So if the current market price on the UK100 is 7384.8 – traders might be presented with 7385.1 to go higher and 7384.5 to go lower. This spread is where the broker makes money – but does mean they can offer higher payouts.

Turbo – The same as a standard High / Low option. Turbos however, use very short time frames for expiry. So times range from 30 seconds to 1,3 or 5 minutes.

Turbo Spread – Short term versions of the High/Low Spread. Again, short term expiry times of 5 minutes and under – but with higher payouts than standard Turbos.

The range of markets to trade include stocks, commodities, indices and forex. The only full category is forex however. Other asset classes lack some depth. The major indices are all there, but commodities in particular are missing one or two popular assets. Anyone only trading major markets will be happy enough, others trading more exotic options might be disappointed. It is however, an area the brand could strengthen. A big minus with this broker is that they have no fancy stuff and by this I mean you can't trade on the weekend. Brokers like Binary, IQ, Spectre do allow that even though their assets may be synthetic?

Deposit And Withdrawal
HighLow offer a great range of deposit and withdrawal payment choices. One important note is that all client funds are held in a separate trust fund – i.e. not in the company accounts. The trust is operated by the National Australian Bank (NAB). This is reassuring for traders. This is a huge positive imho.

My withdrawals took around 1-2 days and sometimes were wired within a few hours.
