Markets World

As you may know, Markets World is a new brokerage firm to hit the binary options market, and so far they are making quite a name for themselves. After testing the platform and the withdrawal process, I can say they are one of the best in the business from my experience.

Markets World or (Markets the World Limited) is pursuant to a current license issued by the GSC, Isle of Man, British Isles. (Click here to view it)

User Friendly: 8/10

Markets World is extremely user friendly, once logged in you’ve got a very nice interface without the clutter you find at some of the other platforms. You are easily able to add new assets to the page so you can see several charts at one time, which keeps you better informed on what is happening in the markets. The deposit and withdrawal process are seamless and it takes no time at all to get started.

Assets & Expiry Times: 6/10

Sadly Markets World lacks a bit in the assets department only having 15 available for trading, however most of you will find that your asset of choice is likely to be on there.

However they do make up for it a little but with 10 minute trading window with 5 minute expiry lockout time which is fantastic. Although they do not offer 60 second trades or longer term trades such as End Of Week/Month.

Customer Service: 10/10

I’ve chatted with customer service over three times since I started using them and I must say they were fantastic. They answered my questions quickly, efficiently and any problems I had were taken care of in minutes. Couldn’t be more happy with them in this regard.

Payout Rates: 10/10

The payout rates at Markets World are PHENOMENAL, 95% is unheard of in the industry and they have done it! Although this is likely only a limited time promotional offer I believe they still plan to keep the rates around 89% which is still amazing, and helps increase our chances of profiting. So again, I couldn’t be more happy with the payouts.

Deposits & Withdrawals: 10/10

Depositing and withdrawing from Markets World were a breeze. You can deposit in about 30 seconds, and place a withdrawal in about 2 seconds. Once you place the withdrawal it took me exactly 3 days from clicking withdraw to have the money in my account. Absolutely amazing, although one of the oddities was that I never even had to send in any paperwork, or ID’s etc. It was just a straight withdrawal. Not sure if this will change in the future, but hey, I like it.

Here is proof of the withdrawal hitting my account. I initiated it in Markets World on July 31st. Approved on August 1st, in my account on August 3rd.

Markets World Withdrawal Proof

Average Withdrawal Time (Credit Card) : 3 Days
Average Withdrawal Time (Wire Transfer): (N/A) They deposited everything back to my card, even profits.

Minimum Deposit: $5 (Also you get an automatic bonus of 100% after 20x volume has been completed.)
Maximum Deposit: No Maximum Deposit

    They have 10 min expiry and 5 min lockout and 30 min expiry, but i am still abit confused with their 30 min expiry, so i recommend to open the practice account and have a play around.

    Hmmm Seems nice to be able to trade/risk so little, however I don’t really like that you are locked down to a trade. I currently use Nadex and they let you close early, so does Banc de Binary. But otherwise my chat with the rep was nice, and informative. If I wasn’t “set in my ways” with being able to close the trade myself I might have chosen MW at one point.

    binaryking - August 8th, 2012 at 12:04 AM

    David, How did you get funds transferred to your checking account. I deposited with my credit card and they are saying my withdrawal will go back to my credit card and not my bank checking/savings account?

    David - August 8th, 2012 at 9:24 AM

    @binaryking – I used a debit card so it just goes straight into my bank account.

    Anyone noticing any kind of spreads with these guys? I’m currently trying out the demo and like what I see so far.

    Royland - August 11th, 2012 at 10:32 AM

    From their website, I have noticed that they are unprofessional from the way they present their website by having girls and car photo, which is not related to professional trading market.

  9. avatar
    Brent - August 11th, 2012 at 12:27 PM

    Hey Royland I can see your point with the girls, not sure how that helps them with traders, but other than that their platform is very user friendly, straight forward, and most importantly they are regulated by their government, which is Great Britain.

    They are not some off shore website that operates under their own rules and where you have to pull your teeth to get your winnings. They seem really legit, they are like Nadex here in the US in the fact that their government regulates them.

    I demoed with them for a few days and just made a 50 dollar deposit to see how it goes. I will keep everyone posted.

    Heinek - August 11th, 2012 at 2:07 PM

    They are located on isle of man wich got nothing to do with great britain, they have their own government. Isle of man is known to have some sketchy buisness over there, not saying that marketsworld is one of them.

    Just letting you know, i don’t know how much that regulation is worth

  11. avatar
    Brent - August 11th, 2012 at 7:05 PM

    I here you heinek but some regulation is better than nothing. Can’t be worse than any of the other off shore brokerage websites that do what they want..including not paying you what you are owed.

    I guess the only way is to try them out. I will post my experience with them.

    bennyt6 - August 14th, 2012 at 12:14 PM

    Must say, I am quite impressed with this website so far. Their customer service is great and the small bet and deposit sizes they allow make a great way to slowly build an account without risking too much of your own capital. From my experience with 24option, marketsworld leaves them in the dust. But I have only been using them for a week so I’ll have to see how it goes. The one main downside I have noticed with them is that their quoted price does not track with charting software as close as some other brokers. There are also odd jumps in price that come out of nowhere and arent reflected in my charts. However, I have managed to avoid losing any bets to this

    Brites - August 14th, 2012 at 12:57 PM

    MarketsWorld, hands down my new favorite bin broker, a close second TradeRush(although bring back the dot touches). Why do I like so much? THEY PAY in a timely manner(3 days guys, set your clocks by it). Also, seeing minimal slippage & love how I see the ex price highlighted on expiration. My friends over at 24O need to get their accounting acts together(withdrawals), I wait, and wait….

    NOTE to all bin brokers, we like getting paid shortly after requesting OUR CASH!

    Brent - August 14th, 2012 at 6:35 PM

    Hey guys have you experienced any spreads with MW so far? I’m noticing they are about 5 or 6 pips above what freestockcharts is showing. They updated their website last night while I was on so I’m wondering if they messed with that at all because before that I didn’t see much of a difference between them and freestockcharts.

    I lost a couple trades today because it was taking 4 seconds to process my trade after I hit the call or push bottom which resulted in a 5 pip difference from what I wanted..the result was a losing trade but would have been ITM if they gave me the price I wanted in at.

    I’m still new to all this but by a few of the comments on this board that seems to be common practice among most of these brokers. Am I wrong?

    kofary - August 16th, 2012 at 5:33 AM

    I think this is a phonie. You can’t avoid the bonus so they obligate you to trade 20XBonus before withdraw any money. The platform is very poor and no professinal at all.

    mralum - August 17th, 2012 at 7:36 PM

    Currently their quoting system is not fair, eg, when you click buy on a asset, you are actually seeing the last price, and once you have clicked BUY, you will get the next price, so basically you dont actually know what price your going to get when you click BUY.

    No one can dispute this, as i have spoken to the live chat and i have also tested this on their platform.

    The PLATFORM needs to improve by a million miles, quoting system unfair, they said to me in most cases you get the same price as you see, but this is not true because i checked this on eur chf, and then the chat person said, it is volatile, at 6pm on friday eur chf hardly going to be volatile.

    I admire their honesty, they need to improve if they are to compete.

  23. avatar
    mralum - August 20th, 2012 at 1:40 PM

    Just to add, i asked them how do they make their money? buying options from the banks, or traders loosing. Brain said he is not allowed to share this information to me. Why is this? most broker firms give some sort of reply.

    Can anyone find this out?

  24. avatar
    mralum - August 20th, 2012 at 1:59 PM

    They have assured me of the following things, when i was concerned about them closing down if too many traders win.

    “The company is very well capitalized and financed. Markets World is capitalized in such a way that we are always able to pay out all winners. Our Isle of Man, British Isles, license requires that we keep daily cash reserves equivalent to the total amounts held in customer accounts. Customer accounts and equivalent amount in cash reserves gets reconciled daily. So if the customers win that day the company has to add money to the cash reserve to match customer holdings the same day. These are segregated accounts and banked in the Isle of Man, not off shore. So the company will always be able to settle all customer debts guaranteed”.

  25. avatar
    binaryking - August 20th, 2012 at 8:38 PM

    @mralum. They make money when we lose. If you read their terms and conditions they clearly state we are competing with them and that no one is taking opposite trades from us.

  26. avatar
    kofary - August 22nd, 2012 at 8:51 AM

    I have accounts at,,, and as you start to win money the make it more and more difficult to you to win. Fore exemple optionbit if you are good and win they put spread and if you still win they raise your spread and so on. I think this guys wich are regulated in Isle of man or in Cyprus are a phonie. In order for them to win you have to lose. And I am not the only one. Check this one

    Sooo what your saying is MW regulation dont mean anything? you might be right, but have you tried MW?

    you get your money fast , nice website , regulated , live chat is awesome, dont get me wrong i love them BUT…. man by the time you click on a put or call and the time their system process it you have the time to read a book ! its that bad , i talked about it twice with them and basically your striking price will be the next price youll see after you clicked and sometimes you are far far away from what u picked and it can takes up to 15seconds , so you pay for a something you like now but you will end out with something you didnt wanted in the first place ! good thing its not like that anywhere else … imagine yourself ordering a filet mignon and a glass of wine in a restaurant but when the food arrives you get the kid meal the little girl behind you in the line up ordered for herself and on top of that you still have to pay the price of the steak lolll sorry but its exactly like that if you think about it.

    sagetrader - September 10th, 2012 at 3:38 AM

    Regarding Kofary’s post on Aug.16th. I emailed MW and this is their response “Many thanks for your recent email regarding opting out of the first deposit cash match bonus. Unlike with other binary options websites, the Markets World bonuses are kept separate from your cash trading account. So unlike with other brokers who provide a bonus but then do not let you withdraw until the rollover for the bonus is met, ours operate differently in that the bonuses are held in a separate bonus funds account and until the rollover requirement is achieved they do not appear in your cash balance. So you are always free to withdraw your cash and winnings at any time. If you meet the rollover requirements for bonuses then the bonus funds transfer from you bonus account to your cash account and you are then free to trade or withdraw the bonus funds at that time. Therefore, unlike with other websites, you will never be negatively affected by the bonus funds provided by Markets World.
    If you want the bonus removed you can let us know after you deposit and we will certainly remove it but this really serves no benefit to you. Again, if you meet the rollover you get the cash bonus, if you do not you can always withdraw your funds and all winnings. You may view the status of all bonuses and the remaining trade volume/rollover requirements in the “Your Account” page after log in.” I think this makes it clear that MW is not out to trick you or is a “phonie” as Kofary suggests. I don’t like the delay in getting my strike price or the change in spreads after I’ve placed my trade but I like the high rate of returns so I’ll put up with it’s negatives as I’m still getting 70-80% ITM trades.

    Acuter - October 1st, 2012 at 3:17 PM

    Marketsworld is “regulated, ” HAH , by a Gambling regulator. That should tell you something . I have been to the Channel Islands twice , and the Isle of Man is NOT a part of the UK ! The only thing ” English ” about them is that they are part of the Channel Islands , located in the ENGLISH channel .

  37. avatar
    ricardo - October 2nd, 2012 at 5:53 PM

    I don`t care if it is a gambling regulator,for me the important thing it`s not to have a gambler mindset. at the end, if i get my money fast for me is ok.

  38. avatar
    Alex2 - October 3rd, 2012 at 10:55 AM

    @Acuter these are fixed odds bets on future outcomes so a gambling regulator can also be in charge of it. The point is they are licensed meaning the segregation of customer funds so the company cant take them, and a fair system that has been tested and approved independently by a trustworthy government regulator. The Isle of Man like all ENGLISH channel islands is a part of Britain, subject to UK courts of law, and is therefore very trustworthy. No difference to me if they got regulated by FSA or GSC, they’re REGULATED in Great Britain

    236dave - October 8th, 2012 at 5:42 AM

    Just a samll correction, the IOM isn’t located in the Channel Islands, it is located in the Irish Sea, roughly mid way between England, Ireland and Scotland. It has its own local ‘Manx’ government, but is part of the UK. I live in NW England and have travelled there 100’s of times. As for the regulation, I can’t say how safe it is.

    patrick3002 - October 10th, 2012 at 10:28 PM

    I have had a great experience at markets world thus far. Been trading on demo and no complaints. Yeah the processing can be a bit delayed but that is the same for all binary options bet sites. Their governing body gsc can be found here: and if you scroll to the bottom you can check the watch list for any websites claiming to be governed by gsc that truely aren’t. I have really enjoyed trading with markets world and will be making a deposit in several days.

    Whoever wrote this review must be an affiliate. Markets World has major issues so far – most important of which are that they lag the market making strike prices very difficult to hit and their charting is basic and of no help to the trader.

    To further comment on MW, yesterday they close the EURUSD 10 min early, just when a clear channel developed for swing trades. Very questionable…..

    linda - January 9th, 2013 at 10:02 AM

    Get your facts right people. The Isle of Man is a very strictly regulated offshore centre. It is nothing to do with the Channel Islands. It is part of the UK and is a crown dependency with its own local government. People who don’t know what they are talking about give offshore jurisdictions who have good governance a bad name! Can’t comment on this particular company as to whether they are good, bad or indifferent. There is good and bad everywhere you just need to work out which are which and not tar an entire jurisdiction when you know nothing!

    Fino - February 5th, 2013 at 11:15 AM

    At this point, MW is using several tactics that go against us. Way too obvious. Their site, coincidentally is always on maintenance or improving, or simply not available in swing periods. The profit % is now a variable, meaning if we have a good chance to be ITM, this number can go as low as 65% and the low probabilities are now 80% profit…very questionable indeed!!!

  51. avatar
    melcole7 - February 6th, 2013 at 2:04 PM

    Hello everyone. I’ve been trading on MW, and so far, I like them. No broker is pefect, but on the major things which are important to me, like expirey times,I like them alot. What I don’t quite, like, but can live with, is their variable %payouts. The payout amouts osccillates up and down very quickly, sometimes from second to second. Also, I keep seeing how they pay 95%; they only pay that on Indecies. I have not seen 95% payout on curency pairs, and I have been on the platform in the day and in the night. What is ecellent obout them is their night trading. Their expirey times go well into the night. Their deposit process is easy. It seems very secure with the credit/debit card credential ID process.I have to see how withdrawl goes, but Brites says thumbs up, so I don’t anticipate any issues. Heyyy Brites!

  52. avatar
    salut - April 14th, 2013 at 7:48 PM

    i used the practice mode for markets world
    undoubtedly it is very good with the payouts
    but after continuous success the graphs will start to show you losses you can make money if you can withdraw before the system makes you lose. the graphs will eventually just lose out seconds before expiry to show a loss
    so be careful!

    Confidenttrader2013 - May 6th, 2013 at 9:15 AM

    Hi everybody,
    Usually I say that MW is hunting positions traders immediately they take positions. From my experience with other brokers I notice they are not the only one who did that in the binary options market. MW is not so worst as they appear. We can deal with it. However, I recommand they change something in their platform: The possibility to go back after taking a position in order to not choose the wrong way. For example if you choose to go “put” in a position you should get the possibility to go back with the same stake and place “call” if you want to. We did it before. Unfortunately you can not do that anymore. in other platform you dont need to go back or forward, its automatic. In order to avoid making mistakes its better to give the chance to the traders to change the directions themselves after taking a position. Hope MW understand what I am saying and brings an answer so far. Thanks all the same.

    Confidenttrader2013 - May 17th, 2013 at 3:51 PM

    Hi everybody,
    I think the problem I had is not marketsworld itself, the problem is with all the brokers. Dear traders don’t ever trust a broker who tells you they will help you win. It’s stupid. They made their money if you loose money. So never they will protect your money. The first time you make a deposit they are your enemy. If you can realize that, you have two choices: definitely leave this market or stay in it carefully. When marketsworld opens the first time I usually made money with them and withdraw every day. But now I only loose money and they are not playing at all with us like in the beginning. It’s the law of this game. Dear traders let me leave you with this thought: trading is like hunting sharks. Any mistake you make it’s done. Think about this and very best regards.


  56. avatar
    oakman - June 8th, 2013 at 11:02 PM

    This review needs to be updated. Their payouts are not what they once were. Floating from 60% to 95% but you will probably never ever see it hit 95% while trading but I see it under 69% alot. This broker has went in the wrong direction in payout rates.

  57. avatar
    Jeremiah - June 11th, 2013 at 5:59 AM

    As far as I can tell their payouts remain the highest when you take the average. I think there was a week or two when their payouts were lower but it does seem that has been corrected (maybe even from comments on here). This is the most reliable broker there is and in my opinion they are the leaders of the industry they just need to add more assets. Free demo account, regulated, trustworthy feed with no funny business, withdrawals and customer service are without fault. For payouts you can compare for yourself, seem the highest to me though

  58. avatar
    BoStarMan - June 11th, 2013 at 7:27 AM

    I tend to agree none are perfect, MW are the best all rounder and one to trust in my opinion…the withdrawal process is great and the payouts do seem much better of late
