There is no liquidity with binary options. There is no marketplace to sell these unexpired contracts. Once you purchase the contract you are in for the duration. Some brokerage firms are starting to experiment with liquidity, offering to either buy back certain of the contracts under certain conditions or find buyers willing to take over unexpired contracts. It will be interesting to see how the industry evolves in terms of such an after-market. Another downside for binary options has to do with the losses. To truly make money in the long run you have to be a skilled investor with high win to loss ratio. Because when you lose with these options, you lose really big, upwards of 90%. Some brokers are now returning 5% to 15% on the losses. This is probably just a marketing ploy to get you to stick with them. But depending upon the size of your account and the size of your trades it could help with another trade.
