About the company:
OptionWeb is a binary options broker that describes itself as the first company in the industry to receive a license from a supervisory authority.
One of the main features of OptionWeb is the fact that the company is regulated. The broker is owned by Lionsman Capital Ltd (Ex Arturiana Holdings Ltd) and registered with CySEC under No. 175/12.
A license does not give 100% guarantee that the broker is a responsible financial services provider, but CySEC control minimizes the risk of fraud. All clients’ funds are stored on segregated accounts.

The broker also offers another account DIAMONDS with a minimum deposit of €250,000. The account has personalized services. All information on trading conditions can be obtained from a personal manager.
Demo account is also available.
The broker developed its own platform for binary options trading - OptionWeb. It does not take much space and can be easily downloaded to any PC. OptionWeb recommends using Chrome or Firefox. There is also a mobile application, which allows the broker’s clients to trade anywhere anytime.
The OptionWeb trading platform supports the following contracts: High/Low, Long Term, 60 Seconds and Touch. All prices are shown in real time.
The portfolio of assets listed on the website includes 62 shares, 30 currency pairs, 9 commodities, and 27 indices. Since the broker claims that some of the accounts have more than 180 assets, it is puzzling where such figures come from. Other assets are available at trader’s request.
The website also has graphical tools for technical analysis.
OptionWeb provides its clients with an e-book on technical analysis and binary options. Also, the main financial events of the day are analyzed in the daily review. Traders can read the news feed and use analytical materials like an economic calendar and charts.
The OptionWeb support service is available 24/5. There is a list of phone numbers for Italy, France, the UK, and Cyprus on the OptionWeb website. Users can also contact OptionWeb via email or a live chat. Client support specialists can help traders when a personal account manager is not available.
Segregated accounts and SSL encryption ensures security of funds. Depositing and withdrawal of funds do not cause any difficulties.
Traders can make a deposit using bank cards, online wallets (Skrill/Moneybookers), and bank transfer. Deposits are immediately displayed in the trading account if a trader used online wallets or bank cards. These payments does not require any commissions. Bank transfers may include additional fees.
Processing of a bank transfer can take up to 5 days.
Users with basic accounts have to wait 3-5 days to deposit money to their accounts. Applications from account holders with a higher minimum deposit are processed for 48 or even 24 hours. If this procedure takes longer, it may be not the broker’s fault; the delay could be caused by a third party. The funds can be withdrawn only in the same way used for the deposit. Bonuses and profits are credited via bank transfer.
The minimum withdrawal amount is $100, but the broker allows the withdrawal of smaller amounts for an additional fee of $25. OptionWeb clients can also make a deposit in EUR. All funds are converted into the trading currency (EUR or USD).
