This allows regulator shopping, where a binary option broker can find a friendly regulator country and then operate EU-wide. See Banc de Binary and these articles on binary options scams. This has not yet taken effect. The final rules are supposed to be published on 3 January , to take effect on 3 January The binary options article probably should be updated early in , when the new rules are out.
There have been many edits from addresses from Wind. Someone seems to be trying to get a message across, but failing because of language problems. Can you tell us what you are trying to do? Someone has been removing the equations on grounds of "overkill". It makes absolutely no sense. This is an encyclopedia and we send students and trainees to get formulae from Wiki.
When you google the page that's what you get. The formulas need to be reinstated. I will revert unless there is a specific spot where these formulas are found. Limit-theorem talk , 19 January UTC. Maybe we should take a stronger line in the lede. We should distinguish between real options, where there's someone on the other side of the trade other than the broker, and bucket-shop operations, where the other party is the broker, acting as the "house" in a gambling transaction.
The US doesn't allow those. See Banc de Binary. CFTC complaint. A binary option has a mathematical importance as the density of the risk neutral distribution. So the lede should distinguish between its theoretical and gambling roles. I teach students binary options and link to this page and want to make sure they do not get confused with this gambling and shady aspect of the binaries. Limit-theorem talk , 13 April UTC.
The binary options industry has a trade convention. There was also a note that SpotOption the binary option platform invented binary options, but the cited source was anonymous. Undid a big revision to the math which was cited to a student site at the University of Waterloo. The anon IP resolves to the University of Waterloo.
Possible WP:OR. The Black-Scholes model math needs work. Currently, the article claims that a common binary option which pays out if the underlying asset is higher at the end of the option period should be valued at. But most binary options are valid for less than a day, some only for minutes.
So the formula simplifies to. Unless the option can be exercised at any time as in "American-type options" , it's just a bet against a random walk. For a short period, the Black-Scholes analysis isn't useful. All that math kind of hides that basic fact. Someone proposed a merge, but didn't start the discussion.
Does anyone want to make a case for a merge with index trading? Merging index trading into Stock market index option might be more useful. I'm doing some editing to try to make the article less jargon-y and more understandable to a broader audience. However, my technical knowledge in this field is not great and I encourage subject matter experts to determine if I've made anything wrong by accident. Coretheapple talk , 17 December UTC.
Again, would appreciate it if subject-matter experts would review my edits. I had several objectives: first to simplify and remove jargon, secondly to make the organization of the article more logical. We talk about the regulatory action against binary options before describing, clearly, just what they are and where they are traded.
The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, as part of their belated crackdown on the binary option industry, has issued a list of domains they know about which are doing binary options business but are not regulated by them. Banc De Binary is on the Quebec list, and that's already covered. We have joined together, all the enforcement agencies, to combat this ugly phenomenon.
We have declared an all-out war against binary options. We hear dreadful testimonies and stories about people being persuaded to enter this arena. Not Israelis. I make it clear all the time that see these operations as forbidden and akin to extortion and exploitation of the public by greedy charlatans, that phone them up and take their money.
We are doing everything that we can today to stop this. New blacklists of binary options brokers from France's financial regulator  , Swiss financial regulator  , and Italy's financial regulator . New statement from Singapore police. See also . Coretheapple talk , 15 February UTC. One binary option operator has renamed binary options " Digital s ". Another name is " Binarex ".
Hativa1 talk , 30 January UTC. A little off topic on this page, please forgive me, but a new article at IQ Option could use a once over by people familiar with this topic area. Wikipedia already has a bit of a history with IQ Option - their website is on our spam blacklist. For example, for some reason I am hesitant to name the FBI agent who was quoted, even though it's right there in the Times of Israel.
It just seems that the important thing is his position within the FBI, not his name. But whatever people think best. If the stock price at expiration is lower than the exercise price, the holder of the options at that time will let the call contract expire and only lose the premium or the price paid on transfer. A trader who expects a stock's price to decrease can buy a put option to sell the stock at a fixed price "strike price" at a later date.
The trader is under no obligation to sell the stock, but has the right to do so at or before the expiration date. If the stock price at expiration is below the exercise price by more than the premium paid, the trader makes a profit. If the stock price at expiration is above the exercise price, the trader lets the put contract expire, and only loses the premium paid. In the transaction, the premium also plays a role as it enhances the break-even point.
For example, if the exercise price is , the premium paid is 10, then a spot price of to 90 is not profitable. The trader makes a profit only if the spot price is below The trader exercising a put option on a stock, does not need to own the underlying asset, because most stocks can be shorted.
A trader who expects a stock's price to decrease can sell the stock short or instead sell, or "write", a call. The trader selling a call has an obligation to sell the stock to the call buyer at a fixed price "strike price". If the seller does not own the stock when the option is exercised, they are obligated to purchase the stock in the market at the prevailing market price.
If the stock price decreases, the seller of the call call writer makes a profit in the amount of the premium. If the stock price increases over the strike price by more than the amount of the premium, the seller loses money, with the potential loss being unlimited. A trader who expects a stock's price to increase can buy the stock or instead sell, or "write", a put. The trader selling a put has an obligation to buy the stock from the put buyer at a fixed price "strike price".
If the stock price at expiration is above the strike price, the seller of the put put writer makes a profit in the amount of the premium. If the stock price at expiration is below the strike price by more than the amount of the premium, the trader loses money, with the potential loss being up to the strike price minus the premium.
Combining any of the four basic kinds of option trades possibly with different exercise prices and maturities and the two basic kinds of stock trades long and short allows a variety of options strategies. Simple strategies usually combine only a few trades, while more complicated strategies can combine several. Strategies are often used to engineer a particular risk profile to movements in the underlying security.
For example, buying a butterfly spread long one X1 call, short two X2 calls, and long one X3 call allows a trader to profit if the stock price on the expiration date is near the middle exercise price, X2, and does not expose the trader to a large loss. Selling a straddle selling both a put and a call at the same exercise price would give a trader a greater profit than a butterfly if the final stock price is near the exercise price, but might result in a large loss.
Similar to the straddle is the strangle which is also constructed by a call and a put, but whose strikes are different, reducing the net debit of the trade, but also reducing the risk of loss in the trade. One well-known strategy is the covered call , in which a trader buys a stock or holds a previously-purchased long stock position , and sells a call.
If the stock price rises above the exercise price, the call will be exercised and the trader will get a fixed profit. If the stock price falls, the call will not be exercised, and any loss incurred to the trader will be partially offset by the premium received from selling the call. Overall, the payoffs match the payoffs from selling a put. This relationship is known as put—call parity and offers insights for financial theory.
Another very common strategy is the protective put , in which a trader buys a stock or holds a previously-purchased long stock position , and buys a put. This strategy acts as an insurance when investing on the underlying stock, hedging the investor's potential losses, but also shrinking an otherwise larger profit, if just purchasing the stock without the put.
The maximum profit of a protective put is theoretically unlimited as the strategy involves being long on the underlying stock. The maximum loss is limited to the purchase price of the underlying stock less the strike price of the put option and the premium paid. A protective put is also known as a married put. Another important class of options, particularly in the U.
Other types of options exist in many financial contracts, for example real estate options are often used to assemble large parcels of land, and prepayment options are usually included in mortgage loans. However, many of the valuation and risk management principles apply across all financial options. There are two more types of options; covered and naked.
Because the values of option contracts depend on a number of different variables in addition to the value of the underlying asset, they are complex to value. There are many pricing models in use, although all essentially incorporate the concepts of rational pricing i. The valuation itself combines a model of the behavior "process" of the underlying price with a mathematical method which returns the premium as a function of the assumed behavior.
The models range from the prototypical Black—Scholes model for equities,   to the Heath—Jarrow—Morton framework for interest rates, to the Heston model where volatility itself is considered stochastic. See Asset pricing for a listing of the various models here. As above, the value of the option is estimated using a variety of quantitative techniques, all based on the principle of risk-neutral pricing, and using stochastic calculus in their solution. The most basic model is the Black—Scholes model.
More sophisticated models are used to model the volatility smile. These models are implemented using a variety of numerical techniques. More advanced models can require additional factors, such as an estimate of how volatility changes over time and for various underlying price levels, or the dynamics of stochastic interest rates.
The following are some of the principal valuation techniques used in practice to evaluate option contracts. Following early work by Louis Bachelier and later work by Robert C. Merton , Fischer Black and Myron Scholes made a major breakthrough by deriving a differential equation that must be satisfied by the price of any derivative dependent on a non-dividend-paying stock.
By employing the technique of constructing a risk neutral portfolio that replicates the returns of holding an option, Black and Scholes produced a closed-form solution for a European option's theoretical price. While the ideas behind the Black—Scholes model were ground-breaking and eventually led to Scholes and Merton receiving the Swedish Central Bank 's associated Prize for Achievement in Economics a.
Nevertheless, the Black—Scholes model is still one of the most important methods and foundations for the existing financial market in which the result is within the reasonable range. Since the market crash of , it has been observed that market implied volatility for options of lower strike prices are typically higher than for higher strike prices, suggesting that volatility varies both for time and for the price level of the underlying security - a so-called volatility smile ; and with a time dimension, a volatility surface.
One principal advantage of the Heston model, however, is that it can be solved in closed-form, while other stochastic volatility models require complex numerical methods. As such, a local volatility model is a generalisation of the Black—Scholes model , where the volatility is a constant. The concept was developed when Bruno Dupire  and Emanuel Derman and Iraj Kani  noted that there is a unique diffusion process consistent with the risk neutral densities derived from the market prices of European options.
See Development for discussion. For the valuation of bond options , swaptions i. The distinction is that HJM gives an analytical description of the entire yield curve , rather than just the short rate. And some of the short rate models can be straightforwardly expressed in the HJM framework.
For some purposes, e. Note that for the simpler options here, i. Once a valuation model has been chosen, there are a number of different techniques used to take the mathematical models to implement the models. In some cases, one can take the mathematical model and using analytical methods, develop closed form solutions such as the Black—Scholes model and the Black model.
The resulting solutions are readily computable, as are their "Greeks". Although the Roll—Geske—Whaley model applies to an American call with one dividend, for other cases of American options , closed form solutions are not available; approximations here include Barone-Adesi and Whaley , Bjerksund and Stensland and others. Closely following the derivation of Black and Scholes, John Cox , Stephen Ross and Mark Rubinstein developed the original version of the binomial options pricing model.
The model starts with a binomial tree of discrete future possible underlying stock prices. By constructing a riskless portfolio of an option and stock as in the Black—Scholes model a simple formula can be used to find the option price at each node in the tree.
This value can approximate the theoretical value produced by Black—Scholes, to the desired degree of precision. However, the binomial model is considered more accurate than Black—Scholes because it is more flexible; e. Binomial models are widely used by professional option traders.
The Trinomial tree is a similar model, allowing for an up, down or stable path; although considered more accurate, particularly when fewer time-steps are modelled, it is less commonly used as its implementation is more complex. For a more general discussion, as well as for application to commodities, interest rates and hybrid instruments, see Lattice model finance. For many classes of options, traditional valuation techniques are intractable because of the complexity of the instrument.
In these cases, a Monte Carlo approach may often be useful. Rather than attempt to solve the differential equations of motion that describe the option's value in relation to the underlying security's price, a Monte Carlo model uses simulation to generate random price paths of the underlying asset, each of which results in a payoff for the option. The average of these payoffs can be discounted to yield an expectation value for the option. The equations used to model the option are often expressed as partial differential equations see for example Black—Scholes equation.
Once expressed in this form, a finite difference model can be derived, and the valuation obtained. A number of implementations of finite difference methods exist for option valuation, including: explicit finite difference , implicit finite difference and the Crank—Nicolson method.
A trinomial tree option pricing model can be shown to be a simplified application of the explicit finite difference method. Other numerical implementations which have been used to value options include finite element methods. We can calculate the estimated value of the call option by applying the hedge parameters to the new model inputs as:. As with all securities, trading options entails the risk of the option's value changing over time.
However, unlike traditional securities, the return from holding an option varies non-linearly with the value of the underlying and other factors. Therefore, the risks associated with holding options are more complicated to understand and predict. This technique can be used effectively to understand and manage the risks associated with standard options. A special situation called pin risk can arise when the underlying closes at or very close to the option's strike value on the last day the option is traded prior to expiration.
The option writer seller may not know with certainty whether or not the option will actually be exercised or be allowed to expire. Therefore, the option writer may end up with a large, unwanted residual position in the underlying when the markets open on the next trading day after expiration, regardless of his or her best efforts to avoid such a residual. A further, often ignored, risk in derivatives such as options is counterparty risk. In an option contract this risk is that the seller won't sell or buy the underlying asset as agreed.
The risk can be minimized by using a financially strong intermediary able to make good on the trade, but in a major panic or crash the number of defaults can overwhelm even the strongest intermediaries.

The Hijra of India are probably the most well known and populous third sex type in the modern world — Mumbai -based community health organization The Humsafar Trust estimates there are between 5 and 6 million hijras in India.
Often somewhat misleadingly called eunuchs in English, they may be born intersex or apparently male , dress in feminine clothes and generally see themselves as neither men nor women. Only eight percent of hijras visiting Humsafar clinics are nirwaan castrated. Indian photographer Dayanita Singh writes about her friendship with a Hijra, Mona Ahmed, and their two different societies' beliefs about gender: "When I once asked her if she would like to go to Singapore for a sex change operation , she told me, 'You really do not understand.
I am the third sex, not a man trying to be a woman. It is your society's problem that you only recognize two sexes. In November , India agreed to list eunuchs and transgender people as "others", distinct from males and females, in voting rolls and voter identity cards. In addition to the feminine role of hijras, which is widespread across the subcontinent, a few occurrences of institutionalized "female masculinity" have been noted in modern India.
Among the Gaddhi in the foothills of the Himalayas, some girls adopt a role as a sadhin , renouncing marriage, and dressing and working as men, but retaining female names and pronouns. Seldom, our society realizes or cares to realize the trauma, agony and pain which the members of Transgender community undergo, nor appreciates the innate feelings of the members of the Transgender community, especially of those whose mind and body disown their biological sex. Our society often ridicules and abuses the Transgender community and in public places like railway stations, bus stands, schools, workplaces, malls, theatres, hospitals, they are sidelined and treated as untouchables, forgetting the fact that the moral failure lies in the society's unwillingness to contain or embrace different gender identities and expressions, a mindset which we have to change.
Justice Radhakrishnan said that transgender people should be treated consistently with other minorities under the law, enabling them to access jobs, healthcare and education. Leonne, then 57, was born intersex and raised male, before having gender reassignment surgery and become female, but still identifies as an intersex person. Leonne won a court case which meant that preventing someone from registering officially as gender neutral is a "violation of private life, self-determination and personal autonomy".
The ruling opened doors for Dutch LGBT groups to ask the government for anyone to be able to identify as gender neutral in the future. More recent material indicates that this third option is not available to intersex persons. Birth certificates are available at birth showing "indeterminate" sex if it is not possible to assign a sex.
On 17 July , Statistics New Zealand introduced a new gender identity classification standard for statistical purposes. The classification has three categories: male, female, and gender diverse. Gender diverse can be further divided into four subcategories: gender diverse not further defined, transgender male to female, transgender female to male, and gender diverse not elsewhere classified.
In June , the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered a census of khawaja sara , who number between 80,  and , in Pakistan. We are slowly getting respect in society. Now people recognize that we are also human beings. In January , it was announced that plans to introduce a third gender option on identification documents, such as passports and the National Identification cards , would be implemented in the near future.
In November , Chen Mei-ling , the Minister of the National Development Council , announced that these plans come into effect in Also commonly referred to as a third sex are the kathoeys or "ladyboys" of Thailand. A significant number of Thais perceive kathoeys as belonging to a third gender, including many kathoeys themselves; others see them as second category women. Despite this, Thai society remains one of the world's most tolerant towards kathoeys or the third gender. We asked our [kathoeys] to say whether they thought of themselves as men, women, sao praphet song ["a second kind of woman"] or kathoey.
None thought of themselves as male, and only 11 percent saw themselves as kathoey i. By contrast 45 percent thought of themselves as women, with another 36 percent as sao praphet song In , the Chiang Mai Technology School allocated a separate restroom for kathoeys , with an intertwined male and female symbol on the door. The 15 kathoey students are required to wear male clothing at school but are allowed to sport feminine hairdos.
The restroom features four stalls, but no urinals. Although Kathoeys are still not fully respected, they are gradually gaining acceptance and have made themselves a very distinct part of the Thai society. This is especially true in the entertainment, business, and fashion industries in Thailand, where the Kathoeys play significant roles in leadership and management positions. In addition, Kathoeys or second-category-women are very sought after when businesses are hiring salespeople.
In many job posts, it is common to see companies state that second-category-women are preferred as their sales force because they are generally seen as more charismatic and expressive individuals. The title " Mx. In September the Ministry of Justice responded to a petition calling for self-determination of legal gender, saying that they were not aware of "any specific detriment" experienced by nonbinary people unable to have their genders legally recognised.
However, in their factsheet, the Scottish Government say they will not be extending legal gender-recognition to non-binary people. Instead they are intending to set up working group to consider what more could be done to further the inclusion of non-binary people in society.
On 14 September an employment tribunal ruled that a non-binary employee was protected under the transition characteristic of the Equality Act , the first legal confirmation that non-binary people are protected by the Act.

Since at least October , Arkansas has been issuing driver's licenses with an "X" gender marker upon request. Arkansas has historically operated without a clear public policy for changing gender markers on IDs.
However, in December former Assistant Commissioner of Operations and Administration Mike Munns announced that Arkansas's official policy would be to "allow a licensee to change their gender as requested, no questions asked, no documentation required. On September 26, , intersex California resident Sara Kelly Keenan became the second person in the United States to legally change her gender to non-binary.
In December , Keenan became the first American recipient of a birth certificate with " intersex " listed under the category of "sex. In September , California passed legislation implementing a third, non-binary gender marker on California birth certificates, drivers' licenses, and identity cards. The bill, SB , also removes the requirements for a physician's statement and mandatory court hearing for gender change petitions.
On November 30, , Colorado began allowing people who do not identify as male or female to mark X as the gender identifier on their driver's license. Effective July 1, In December , Illinois passed legislation to allow gender-neutral markers on driver's licenses and ID cards.
On June 11, , Maine began allowing "X" gender markers on state IDs, using a temporary sticker until a system update. A law offering an "X" gender marker on driver's licenses and state identification cards has also been passed in Maryland effective October 1, Effective November 12, Minnesota began allowing "X" gender markers on state IDs on October 1, The designation is considered self reported information and does not require documentation.
A nonbinary person named Minnesota J. Zappa became the first person to obtain the marker after a struggle with the state Department of Vehicle Services for over a year. Effective now. The passage of Senate Bill 20 into law in the session of the New Mexico Legislature amended the Vital Records Act to allow for a third designator on the state's identification documents in both Real ID Act compliant and non-compliant forms , 'X', to be selected instead of 'F' or 'M' and required only a doctor's signature on the designator change request form instead of a court order as prior.
The Motor Vehicle Division of the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department began issuing such licenses later that year, although by Q1 the forms for license renewal had not yet been reprinted with the third option shown, instead allowing manual amendment.
On June 10, , a state judge in a Multnomah County, Oregon circuit court ruled that a resident, James Shupe , could obtain a non-binary gender designation. On June 15, , Oregon became the first state in the U. As of , in the state of Oregon any person may choose a gender marking of their choosing "F", "X," or "M" being the options, the field being listed as "sex" on their driver's license or identification card without any requirements of proof of gender.
Oregon also allows a person to amend their birth certificate to include non-binary "X" gender marker as of January 1, However, in December of , Shupe successfully petitioned the court which granted the "non-binary" gender designation to revert the sex listed on his birth certificate to "male.
On July 30, , the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced that they would introduce an official process to request an X gender designation on state driver's licenses in In December , Washington state filed an adopted rule to allow a third, non-binary "X" gender marker on amended birth certificates, although certificates will still be initially issued with male or female designations; the rule went into effect on January 27, The law also provides a basis for social protection, anti-discrimination efforts, quotas and reparations.

Binary options are often considered a form of gambling rather than investment because of their negative cumulative payout the brokers have an edge over the investor and because they are advertised as requiring little or no knowledge of the markets. Gordon Pape , writing in Forbes. Pape observed that binary options are poor from a gambling standpoint as well because of the excessive "house edge". Let's say you make 1, "trades" and win of them.
In other words, you must win The U. Commodity Futures Trading Commission warns that "some binary options Internet-based trading platforms may overstate the average return on investment by advertising a higher average return on investment than a customer should expect given the payout structure. In the Black—Scholes model , the price of the option can be found by the formulas below. This pays out one unit of cash if the spot is above the strike at maturity. Its value now is given by.
This pays out one unit of cash if the spot is below the strike at maturity. This pays out one unit of asset if the spot is above the strike at maturity. This pays out one unit of asset if the spot is below the strike at maturity. The price of a cash-or-nothing American binary put resp. The above follows immediately from expressions for the Laplace transform of the distribution of the conditional first passage time of Brownian motion to a particular level.
Similarly, paying out 1 unit of the foreign currency if the spot at maturity is above or below the strike is exactly like an asset-or nothing call and put respectively. The Black—Scholes model relies on symmetry of distribution and ignores the skewness of the distribution of the asset. The skew matters because it affects the binary considerably more than the regular options. A binary call option is, at long expirations, similar to a tight call spread using two vanilla options.
Thus, the value of a binary call is the negative of the derivative of the price of a vanilla call with respect to strike price:. Skew is typically negative, so the value of a binary call is higher when taking skew into account. Since a binary call is a mathematical derivative of a vanilla call with respect to strike, the price of a binary call has the same shape as the delta of a vanilla call, and the delta of a binary call has the same shape as the gamma of a vanilla call.
Many binary option "brokers" have been exposed as fraudulent operations. Manipulation of price data to cause customers to lose is common. Withdrawals are regularly stalled or refused by such operations; if a client has good reason to expect a payment, the operator will simply stop taking their phone calls.
On 23 March , The European Securities and Markets Authority , a European Union financial regulatory institution and European Supervisory Authority located in Paris, agreed to new temporary rules prohibiting the marketing, distribution or sale of binary options to retail clients.
