ARE BINARY OPTIONS LEGAL IN THE US?
There seems to be a great deal of confusion these days regarding the legality of binary options trading in the US. Much of this confusion can be attributed to the rise of off-shore binary options platforms and the off-exchange or OTC contracts they offer.
With regard to the legality of “binary options”, the question is not so much are they legal, but are they listed on a proper United States exchange and are the firms offering them properly registered and regulated to offer these types of contracts to residents of the United States.
Nadex is a regulated US exchange, designated by the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission), and is permitted to accept US residents as members.
