DMM Option, a unit DMM FX Australia and part of the Japan-based DMM Group, today announced that it will stop providing binary options trading to its clients. The halt is scheduled for this Saturday – November 21, 2015.
The company says its focus will be on Forex products, which will still be delivered by DMM FX Australia.
Client funds will be returned by Monday, December 14, 2015.
DMM had made some changes to its binary options offering in the past year, including a switch to the MarketsPulse platform. But apparently binary trading just didn’t take off at DMM, leading to the current decision.
Below is the official announcement from the company:
