Fixed Odds differ from trade on Forex. First, on Bet On Markets you may carry out rates not only on Forex, but also on shares and indexes. Second, you do not buy currency or shares, and do rates on change of their values during certain time. Thus, trade on a site is similar to rates on horse jumps, only here you do rates on jumps of the markets.
The Bet On Markets site features fixed odds financial bets; i.e. financial bets that pay a fixed amount (or nothing) on expiry. In other words, when you buy a fixed-odds bet from Bet On Markets, you are entitled to receive a payout, which is a fixed multiple of the amount you have staked. With the betonmarkets dealing system a trader expresses a view and makes a prediction. If the prediction comes true, the trader will profit by a predetermined amount. Before any bet is placed, the trader knows the entire possible downside as well as the exact possible profit.
However you are also given the possibility to sell your bet before the final settlement date to mitigate your losses or take your profits out early. This means that your risk level is clearly defined at all times.
