KeyStone Binary Options Platform and B2B by Markets Review
Keystone is the first binary options platform created by forex broker, Markets.com. The Keystone platform is easy to use, highly intuitive and used by CySEC regulated brokers such as TopOption and Winner-Option. As a stand alone platform Keystone is OK but when compared to top platforms like AnyOption, StockPair and SpotOption falls short. This platform is geared for short term day trading and not for longer term speculation. Visit KeyStone Home for more details.
Why Keystone Platform Doesn’t Suck
First off this platform doesn’t suck because it comes from a forex broker and not a casino. This may sound like a small distinction but it can mean volumes in terms of services and operation. The platform is quick and has very little lag time and there is a full complement of available options. High/Low trading is dominant with expiry ranging from 60 second speed trading to end of the day. Other available options include one touch and ProOption. ProOption features the most heavily traded assets and allows traders advanced features like Rollover, Double Up and Early Out.
Why KeyStone Platform Might Suck
This platform might suck because they only have short term expiry. This is OK for the day trader, the high risk trader and the gambler but not for anyone with an outlook longer than 8 hours. This is one of the reasons why so many brokers get pegged as scams.

Prices & Rates: Accurate
The platforms technology is pretty advanced. Aside from the limited number of expiry there are quite a few features. Standard binary trading is available with Classic Trading. One Touch and No Touch options are available but no range or boundary. 60 Second options are called Speed Trading but the Pro Options are the most advanced. These are standard high/low options but with the added features of rollover, double up and early out. The platform is completely web based and requires no down loads. It was developed by the team behind Markets.com, a leading international forex broker.
My Trading Experience
My over all trading experience was good except for one thing. I was forced to trade end of day, not my usual end of week/one week expiry that I prefer. Other than that the platform works well. Assets pop up on the screen quickly with very little lag when changing assets. Orders execute quickly as well and are tracked in a menu at the bottom of the screen. Because it is web based you may experience faster or slower load and execution times depending on your machine and internet connection. The ProOptions are the best feature of this platform but assets are very limited. Only a handful of the assets available for standard trading are available on the ProOption trader but the ones that are can be sold at will, have their expiry extended or their trade size increased.
