Pairs allow investors to predict which of two assets will outperform or surpass the other by expiry. With regular Binary Options, the price of a commodity is predicted. Pairs Options focus on the relationship between two instruments (commodities, stocks or indices). With Pairs, a trader predicts how strong or weak one asset will be compared to another.
For example, investors can trade on the performance of Gold compared to Silver, Google compared to Apple, Dow Jones compared to FTSE.
