Choose a side

Choosing a “Yes” or “No” position on a predicted closing price will cost $1 – $99 to trade. This value will vary throughout the trading period as the likelihood of the product closing above the predicted price changes with market movements.

Know what you will earn or lose

Once you choose a side, you can rest easy knowing what you paid is the most you can lose.

You will be credited $100 if your prediction is correct, and $0 if your prediction is incorrect. So, if you paid $75 for a “Yes” position that closed in your favor, your profit would be $25.*

*Less applicable fees and commissions

Understand the probabilities

The price of the position is closely tied with the trade’s percent probability of success.

For example, if you pay $75 to take a “Yes” position on a price prediction, the market is suggesting that there is a 75% chance of the product closing above the listed price.
