How to make your first option trade on Deriv Trader

Hello Deriv Community,

Here is how you can make your first options trade on Deriv Trader.

First, you need to choose the following:

1. Market

Pick the market you want to trade. It can be forex, stocks & indices, commodities, derived, cryptocurrencies, or commodities.

2. Trade type

Select your trade type-- Up and Down, High and Lows, Digits, etc.

3. Trade duration

Set the duration of your trade. Depending on whether you have a short-term or long-term view of the markets, you can set your preferred duration, starting from 1 to 10 ticks or 15 seconds to 365 days.

4. Stake/Payout

Stake is the money that you stand to lose if the market moves against your prediction. Payout is the money that you stand to win if the market moves as you predicted. You need to enter an amount either for Stake or for Payout.

5. Get quote

If you’ve set your stake, you’ll immediately receive a payout quote. That is, you’ll see how much you stand to win if the market moves in your favour. If you’ve entered the payout, you’ll instantly get a quote of the stake required to open a position.
