GIBRALTAR- PRNewswire: In March 2023, IQ Option, the leading online trading platform, introduced Islamic accounts to its Android users. Islamic accounts are meant for Muslim traders who were unable to trade due to religious restrictions on overnight commissions or swaps, which are considered usury and prohibited by Sharia law. Thanks to the IQ Option Islamic account, Muslim traders can now operate the market without consequences for their faith and from the device of their choice.
Benefits of the IQ Option Islamic account
• Zero-swap trading. The Islamic account has no swaps — traders can extend their positions to the next trading day for free, without having to pay any overnight commissions. This feature is great news for Muslim traders who were previously unable to trade on this platform.
• Exclusive halal assets. Islamic account users have access to 21 exclusive halal stocks. These are shares of companies that do not sell alcohol and tobacco, as well as companies that are known in the Islamic world and traded on Islamic exchanges.
List of IQ Option Islamic account assets
• One-time fee. IQ Option’s Islamic account is cost-effective, with a one-time commission of just $1. Unlike with other competitors, traders are not required to make huge deposits to open an account. Instead, they just pay a small fixed amount once and use the Islamic account for life.
• Personal account manager. All IQ Option Islamic account holders are assigned a personal account manager, a feature previously reserved only for VIP account holders.
• Easy switch. The registration process is easy, and traders can get an Islamic account on their own without contacting support. Note that for now, registering an Islamic account is only possible on desktop, but after the registration, traders can log in to this account from any Android device.
