    Stockpair Kiko options !!!

    What do you think of Stockpair KIKO options?

    "KIKO options are a new and simple trading instrument in which the trader predicts which of the upper or lower price targets (barriers) the asset price will hit first. If it first hits the price target that the trader has chosen (Knock-In), the option will expire "In the Money" (ITM) and they will receive a payout. If the asset price first hits the opposite price target, the option will expire "Out of the Money" (OTM) and there will be no payout.

    There is NO set expiry time. This means that the trade will continue until the asset hits one of the barriers."


    has anyone tried it? It looks really interesting to me. In a trending market it must work quite well.

    Wow I just saw this after you mentioned it.
    First I thought it was the same old as everywhere else but
    the no expiry thing is nothing I've ever seen.
    I like it, I think I can do some
    decent trades with KIKO. Suits my strategy very well.
    Oftentimes you know a support/resistance will hold
    but you don't know the expiry so it is much better
    to just choose the direction and don't miss the trade.

    Took this trade while replying to this thread:

    Looking more into it and doing some maths, if you want to do KIKO or barrier option you might just as well do traditionnal forex trading with stop lost and take profit lines. At Stockpair, the low span target on EUR/USD is set to 8.2 pip and if you win you get 82% of your investment so you give up 18 %. with traditinnal forex you would give up around 1 pip to the broker from the middle price 1 pip/8.2 pip = 12,2 %. The high span is set up to 28 pip so 1 pip/28 pip = 3,6 %. And with forex you can get out when you want. I guess the only advantage with KIKO is that everything is set up for you, automatic stop lost and take profit lines and you don't have to calculate the lot size, you know right away what you can win and loose.
    Anyway if anyone has experience with KIKO or barrier option it would be nice to read about it.

    Nah, FOREX is a whole other sets of rules.
    Payouts are lower, unless you are investing
    hundreds of thousands and that also means
    you can lose way more than your house is worth :P.
    Of course, there are rules in the FOREX trading business
    too and there are successful people doing it so if you want
    to learn then sure, go ahead.

    Just spoke with Stockpair about the Kiko yesterday! Yeah it's a cool new feature. Basically you choose between 2 spreads, and 2 directions. You can go "Call/Above/High", and choose your spread (higher the spread, higher the return). When the price hits your target - time doesn't matter - you win. If it doesn't - well, you'll have to keep waiting lol, or get knocked out in losing spread. That's a cool feature, and the best part for it is not having to set expiry! i've heard Stockpair were working on this tool for 2 years now. It's similar to Forex in the concept, but totally different because you don't make money for each pip or lose money for each pip. So nothing like Forex basically. Haven't tested it yet, but I'll very soon and report to you all!

    Impatient Gamblers....Stay Away. Patient S&R traders with a keen eye on fundamentals, you just received a Cake with ALL the cherries on top of it. In my honest opinion, trading anything that does not involve expiry is the way to go, and better than forex...resounding yes.

    NOW....NOT SHOUTING...MR KAY...CAN YOU PLEASE GET STOCKPAIR to CONSIDER NETELLER as a PAYMENT OPTION?? I mean you must have SOME clout over there, Not?
