10trade deals are dependent on the markets, which are dynamic and change all the time. The
fluctuations in the market, in currency rates, and in other parameters, affect our fully automated pricing
engine. This is why rates and premiums may change all the time.
For your convenience, we developed the currency rates table which displays market data in real time
and can give you an indication as to whether the rates are going up or down. When the rates in the bar
are green it means they went up since the last update, when they are red it means they went down
since the last update.

The rate is a live feed directly from BBC Finance adapted using 10trade algorithms.

The expiration time is the time and date at which an option expires.

The expiry rate is the level of the underlying asset at the time of expiry of the asset according to Reuters.
This is the determining level if the option has expired in-the-money or out-of-the-money. A different
expiry rate is determined for each underlying asset.

Your account will be credited automatically with a proportion of your original investment. The
proportion you will be credited varies depending on the option you have taken from 0-10% of the value
of your original trade. For example, if you traded a Nasdaq Call option with a value of $500, and at the
time of expiry your trade closed "out of the money" - you would receive a credit on your trade between
$0-$50 depending on the option you had bought.

Simply choose between buying a "Call" or a "Put" option on any asset which you want to trade. Clicking
on the Call/Put button will open a short investment sheet in the same box, where you will be requested
to enter the amount of the investment and to approve execution. When you have purchased a trade,
you will have 3 seconds to cancel the trade before it is automatically approved.
Please note that the rates continue updating in the investment sheet.
