Nadex Looks To Expand Forex Binary Expirations After Volume Doubles Year-Over-Year

The Nadex average daily volume on contracts increased 106 percent in 2013 compared to 2012. See release HERE. Traders are realizing the benefits of trading binaries on a regulated exchange and the benefits Nadex price ladder binaries offer.
Nadex already expanded its forex offerings so far in 2014 by adding around the clock expirations almost every hour of the day on EUR/USD and USD/JPY.
This past week, they added intraday two-hour binary contracts on Nikkei 225. 
Now as binary traders continues to grow, they are adding AUD/USD and GBP/USD to their around the clock binary schedule. The additional binary contracts for GBP/USD and AUD/USD are scheduled to be released for trading effective March 3, 2014. 
The intraday AUD/USD and GBP/USD binary contracts that are being added have narrow strike widths of 10 ticks than the 20 tick wide dailies. This offers greater precision and more opportunities for traders to take advantage of trading during the Asian and London trading sessions. They have also added post-market hours of 4 P.M. and 5 P.M. ET.
