HighLow Binary Options Returns to Malaysia

UPDATE 2019: HighLow is unfortunately no longer offering services to clients outside of Australia. For the very best trading experience available to Malaysian traders, we are currently recommending Zentrader. Zentrader offers some of the highest payouts of up to 195%, MYR deposits and withdrawals.

Malaysian traders have very few genuine options when it comes to trading binary options. The product is not offered locally and many of the overseas brokers who accept Malaysian traders are unregulated and untrustworthy.

This week, the world’s largest binary options broker HighLow Markets quietly returned to Malaysia after pulling out mid-2017. One Kuala Lumpur based Introducing Broker we spoke to said she was not aware why the company decided to leave in 2017 as they seemingly had 1000s of local clients.

Web and Mobile Trading Platforms

HighLow Malaysian Platform Features

We note no real changes to the platform for the Malaysian market aside from the addition of crypto assets. The account base currency also remains in US Dollars (USD) and as at June 2018 no Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) accounts remain available.

Payouts on winning trades are up-to 200% and a free demo account is available with live data.

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods

Slightly disappointing is the lack of local bank transfer as a deposit method. We hope HighLow will allow direct local deposits and withdrawals for major Malaysian banks (Maybank, RHB and Public Bank etc.) in the future.

Malaysians can currently only deposit and withdraw via Credit Cards (Visa and Mastercard), Neteller, Bitcoin and International Bank Transfer to Australia.

Regulation and Funds Protection

HighLow is fully licensed and regulated by ASIC in Australia (License Number 364264). This is the primary reason why they attract serious traders from around the world. Traders who have large balances in their account feel comfortable knowing HighLow is required by law to follow strict client money procedures, including complete segregation of client funds.
