Trade your prediction

Trade your prediction on whether a market will close above a certain price. Each product has a variety of prices from which you can choose, depending on how bullish or bearish you are on that market.

Choose a side

Choosing a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ position on a predicted closing price will cost $0.25 - $19.75 to trade. This value will vary throughout the trading day as the likelihood of the product closing above the predicted price changes with market movements. Once you choose a side, you can rest easy knowing what you paid is the most you can lose.

Know what you will earn or lose

You will be credited $20 if your prediction is correct, and $0 if your prediction is incorrect. So, if you paid $13 for a ‘Yes’ position that closed in your favor, your profit would be $7*.

*Less applicable fees and commissions

Understand the probabilities

To determine the probability of a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ position occurring, just multiply the cost of the position by 5. For example, if you pay $15 to take a ‘Yes’ position on a price prediction, the market is suggesting that there is a 75% chance (5x15) of the product closing above the listed price. 

Event contracts are daily expiring products that allow market participants to trade their views on daily up or down price moves in some of the world’s most trusted benchmark Equity Index, Energy, Metals, and Foreign Currency futures markets with risk limited to the amount of the trade.
