Profiting from Binary Options

How I supplement my income with binary trading

When binary trading first came out, I didn’t really believe it. I mean, ads were pompously promoting insane returns on investment. Who could possibly believe that you could make 70 to 90% of your investment back on a single trade?
However after a few months of getting these ads right in my face, I decided to give it a try. After all, if I risked a small amount I couldn’t lose more than I deposited so I had full control over it. So there I went, I pulled out my credit card and deposited $100.

My first experience trading binary options

At first I didn’t really know what to expect. I had all sorts of bonuses which made it virtually impossible for me to lose the first few trades I placed. It was fun. It felt a lot like playing slots, which is probably a bad thing.
After a week or so I decided to start looking around for strategies and really dig into the math that surrounds binary trading. At this point I had made about $20, which was fun but obviously not enough.
Once I found a working strategy, after a few days of testing it at low risk trades ($1/trade), I realised I could actually make some decent money with this!

How I grew my income with trading

As soon as I realized the potential in binary options, I decided to deposit a bit more (about $500). This was just so I could place trades with half decent size and actually make money.
I grew my account over the first few months and opened a few more accounts with different brokerages to maximize my returns, there were a few hick ups with some untrustworthy brokers but once I found good brokerages that I worked well with my confidence grew and I started to make a comfortable living from trading every month. My schedule consisted of waking up, grabbing a cup of coffee, analyzing the market and placing anywhere between 2 and 6 trades around 9am.
The trades usually expire 4 hours after I place them, so I just sit back and manage the risk.  ( basically just hedging trades that go against my pre-plotted support/ resistant levels) Whats nice is that I can work from my phone if I’m out and about and once my trades expire I just  rinse and repeat.  Having an abundance of time to do what I want when I want is truly the greatest reward from being a successful binary option trader.

The perks of profiting from binary options

Binary option brokers have made a name for themselves by providing the single best return on investments trading has to offer. The attraction is simple yet effective: on a single binary trade you could potentially win between 70 and 90% of your investment back.
To the untrained eye this might not seem like much but it’s actually quite an accomplishment. When you think about it, most traders in big banks and hedge funds aim at making between 10 and 20% per year in the markets.
Binary trading has changed the way the average Joe looks at the markets and how he perceives making money from it.

Tips on profiting from binary options

Now that we’ve got you all excited about making big returns (and big bucks) from the binary market, let’s have a quick look at what you should do to make sure you book these wins.
First, always stick with well-known and regulated binary brokers. Don’t be lured into depositing any amount of money on a shady website just because they promise you very high return rates. While the binary broker world has evolved a lot recently, there are still many crooks out there so beware. ( make sure to do your research)
Second, build a bankroll management strategy. Countless traders have deposited a small sum of money in the hopes of building great wealth, only to lose it all in 2 trades. It’s important to manage your capital so that you have enough trades possible to ride out variance.
A good basic bankroll management strategy is to have at least 20 to 30 trades in your capital. This means if you were to deposit 300€, you would risk 10€ per trade. That way, if your strategy is profitable, you’ll have time to build your capital slowly but surely.

Binary Trading Sounds good doesn’t it?

Hold up! You think profiting from binary options is easy?  Well there’s some truth to that myth. It is easy if you know what you are doing and you have a proven system in place. Think of it like a sport.. a mental sport, the more you practice, the more adversity you face, the more struggles you  conquer the better you become, the stronger you get.
trading success
For some it is easy, probably because they are on the right path and understand that trading binary options is an entrepreneurial discipline.
For others its a struggle- quite often it because they are looking  for a quick path to riches  or a free ride to financial freedom.
Becoming  successful at anything usually requires a lot of work and binary option trading is no different.

Binary Options Trading Advice

The best binary options trading advice you’ll ever get

The recent enormous growth of the binary options market has attracted many new customers from all walks of life. The idea behind the heavy marketing displayed by binary brokers is that everyone can get rich from trading fast paced options.
Obviously this is the message almost each and every broker wants you to hear, but in the binary business it has been ever more hammered in the mind of potential customers since you get to start with so little money (from $10 sometimes) and don’t need any specific program or set of skills.
Since it’s so easy to access, many have been lured into thinking that binary options trading is extremely easy and a great way to make some extra bucks with little to no risk. Of course, risk is inherant with everyform of trading and binary options is no different. Trading on the financial markets is one of the most lucrative oportunities available today and binary options makes it accesable to the masses but before you go out and deposit with a broker, make sure you go in with a plan before you become another statistic.

The best advice you’ll ever get

Here is the advice, write it down, hang it on a wall, tattoo it on your arm (no, please don’t do that): You should treat binary option trading like a business. Every trade should be analyzed and managed as if your life were depending on it.
Binary trading is not super easy. You won’t get rich over night. You won’t make thousands of dollars from a $10 account in 2 weeks. You won’t win every single trade.
Trading, whatever the form (binary, forex, stocks, etc.) is a business. You need to go in with a plan and follow it to a T.
Before jumping head first into the binary trading world, sit down and write a decent plan. In this plan should be the following:
– How much money can I safely invest?
– How much money do I want to earn per month (be reasonable)?
– How much money can I risk per trade?
– Which strategy will I use, and why?
– How will I test the validity and profitability of that strategy before investing any money?
Once you have answers to these questions, you’ll be ready and far ahead of anyone who jumps into binary trading with big dreams but no plan at all.

A simple binary options strategy that works

Binary trading, in principle, is a pretty simple way of trading. It’s easily understandable, doesn’t require much knowledge to place a few trades and is extremely easy to access. Anyone can make an account within a few minutes, deposit a few bucks and start trading.
Obviously the trouble comes when it’s time to actually make some money! That’s where real traders will have an edge versus the recreational “let’s deposit and see what happens” types of traders.
Building a working and profitable binary options strategy can be a drag. The way most traders do it is by opening an MT4 charts or Freestockcharts.com (any broker) and fashion a strategy that relies on a few indicators plotted on these charts.
In this article, we’re going to save you the trouble of finding out what works and lay a sample out for you.

Strategies that work in binary trading

The best binary trading strategies are momentum based. This simply means that you should be looking for strong short momentum outbursts in the market and trade these off the binary market.
The way to spot a momentum trade is to have simple indicators and/or lines plotted on your charts. The purists will tell you to only rely on support or resistance breaks (and they are right), but that might be too difficult for you if you’re a beginner.
What you could do instead is plot an 18 EMA (exponential moving average) for instance. Each time a candle breaks the EMA and closes on the other side, you place a momentum (ie: short term) trade on your binary platform.
What were aiming to do is take advantage of the people doing the exact same thing in the “real” market, and basically take advantage of all the big positions the big players place when this happens, which pushes the market further. You capitalize on that strong market move, manage your risk and then move on to the next trade.

Trend Trading Binary Options

Going with the Trend

Trend trading– As far as “tricks” in trading go, trading by following trends has to be the oldest one in the book. Following the trend is THE go-to advice experienced traders will give to anyone wanting to start trading.
Although it is good sense to do so, some traders still get confused about the way it should actually be applied. In this article we’ll go over what trading with the trend is, and how to spot trends easily.

What does Trading with the Trend mean?

Trading with the trend means exactly what you think it means: it’s spotting a trend (a long term direction in the market) and following it.
Basically you want to spot whether the market is going up or down, and place your entries according to that direction.
The general idea is that usually long term trends tend to last… well, a long time. Therefore if you were to jump into long trends at the start, you could potentially ride them until the end and make a boatload of money.
It also means you can add to your position gradually every step of the way. This obviously depends on the type of strategy you’re using, but it should be your goal to always place your trades in favor of the dominant trend in order to put the probability of winning the trade in your favour.

How to Spot the Trend?

how to spot a trend in binary options

Obviously the first issue for new traders is to actually spot the current trend. Markets can go 3 different ways: up, down or sideways. Even though there are only 3 solutions, things can get confusing so let’s define how we look for trends once and for all.
First step is to open your charts, and zoom out. You don’t want to be seeing big candles or bars. Zoom out until you can see quite a bit of data on your charts.
Now sit back, and look: where is the market heading? Think like a 5 year old. If you were to ask to a 5 year old, “Where is the market going?”, what would he say? If you have a 5 year old, ask them! Its quite easy to spot when you don’t over think it.

How to Trade the Trends in Binary Options

Trading and following the trends is probably the single best way to make money in the markets. It has always been the strategy that big investors use, and this since the very early days of market trading.
Trend trading in the traditional markets (forex, stocks, etc.) is fairly straight forward. All you need to do is spot the current trend, build a strategy that allows you to jump in it at profitable points, and apply your rules the best way you can.
In binary trading though, it can become a bit more difficult. In this article we’ll see why it’s more difficult to trade the trends in binary options.

Trend Trading in Binary Options

binary-options-trend trading

The difficult part of trading the trends with binary options is that you’re locked into a trade for a certain amount of time, with what seems to be no power.
Let’s say you were to place a long term trade in the regular forex market, following the current up trend. It would be easy for you to regularly check up on your trade and adjust your risk. You could for instance move your stop loss up, close some part of your trade to limit your risk, or even just close the trade if you feel like you’ve taken all you could get.
In binary trading, you simply can’t do that, hedging your trade if the trend goes against you is the a good way to minimize risk, You can also manage your trade for a double profit setup, but that is more suited to a non trending market situation. Once your trade has been placed, you have to wait for the expiry to kick in, however, with some platforms you have the ability to sell off your position before your expiry, at a small loss if the trade goes against you or for a profit if the trade is going your way, which is essentially  the same stop loss system regular forex traders use without all the complications.
You definitely can make money following the trend in binary, you just have to adapt to the market conditions and manage your trades accordingly.

Trend trading clock

Finding the current trend is one thing, figuring out which expiry you should take is another. Try to think in absolutes: where is the market likely to reverse or slow down, and how fast is the market moving? (volatility) If the market is moving in quick successions of high numbers of pips, you might be better off placing a short term expiry on your binary trade, If the market is moving very little and is not showing many signs of being volatile then its wiser to extent your expiry times.
There are a plethora of ways to use the trend in order to trade binary options profitably. It is one of the simplest and most reliable chart patterns and can and should be integrated in all strategies while trading. If you have any questions about using the trend to trade binary options or would like to share your story of trend trading please do so in the comments section.

Day Trading Binary Options

Day trading – A Love Hate Relationship

Ha, day trading! Who hasn’t heard about day trading? It’s pretty much one of the first things a new trader reads about after the first boring articles about support, resistance and EMAs.
Day trading is the dream for many traders. It’s the skill of being able to make money in short term trades, sometimes tons of money within a few minutes.
Day trading is also the pitfall of many cowboy traders who think they are fit to risk enormous amounts in high variance trades. Most of the times these traders do it for the show, for the adrenaline pumping through their veins, more than for the money they could potentially earn.
Should you, or should you not, day trade? That’s the question we’re going to ask ourselves now.

Why you shouldn’t be day trading

day trading-why you shouldnt be

Day trading is extremely risky. Like we mentioned earlier, day trading consists of taking high risk positions for a short amount of time hoping to cash in on very quick movements in the market. Most day traders don’t hold their trades for more than an hour. It’s extremely fast.
If you’re new to trading, resist. Do not day trade within the first year of investing in the markets. It’s tempting, but it’s going to cost you. A good alternative would be to day trade with a demo account. See how it feels, have fun, but don’t invest any real money in it.

Why you should be day trading

Day-trading- why you should be

If you have the experience (and have developed a skill for it by, for instance, practicing on a demo account for a few months), day trading can be very profitable. It should be encouraged to have both a day trading and a long term trading strategy in your arsenal.
Once you spot a long term trend, you could place a long term position which will give you profits over time, and at the same time take small day trading stabs at the market for more rewards.

How to day trade in the binary options market

Day trading, the art of opening and closing profitable trades within the scope of one day maximum, is all most binary traders can talk about these days. The fact is that binary trading and day trading are extremely well correlated.
Binary trades can, by definition, be opened and closed within very short amounts of time. Some experienced traders can place numerous trades per day using expiries as low as 30 seconds. This means that each time they open a trade, 30 seconds later it closes at a loss or a profit. It’s an extremely fast form of trading and is becoming very popular.
Coupling day trading and binary trading can be very profitable, but you have to know what you’re doing. In this article we’ll go over a short plan (the basics) that should allow you to be prepared to dive into this exciting world.

A plan to day trade in the binary options world

Binary-Options-Day-Trading
The first thing you need to settle on while day trading binary options is a strategy. Most binary traders use momentum based strategies, which means they enter the market when there’s a strong push on either side of the market, hoping to capitalize on that quick movement.
Once you have found a strategy that works for you, you need to decide which expiry you want to trade on. It’s important not to take the lowest possible expiry just because you feel like you’ll be able to place more trades. More isn’t always  better. Find an expiry that works in your brain (you can handle its pace mentally) and that fits the strategy you’ve built.
Anywhere between 5 minutes to a couple hours are good day trading expiries, especially for momentum based trades.
The last thing you need to do is plan your money management. Give yourself a stop loss for the day, (ie stop after 2 losing trades) and try to trade on risk free capital as soon as you get the chance.

Price Action Trading

The art of price action trading

Price action trading is an art, they say. The mystery that surrounds price action trading is appealing to young traders. There is something about the fact that some people can make money off the markets simply by looking at candles going up and down that attracts the attention.
While price action trading is indeed very profitable for a select few who have learned to trade it perfectly, it’s also a very dangerous path to go down to for complete beginners. Let’s see why that is.

funny binary option humour

What is price action trading?

It’s all in the name. Trading price action is to base trading decisions solely on price movements. A price action trader doesn’t have any indicators on his charts. The only indicator he looks at is price going up or down.
The idea behind it is that price action should actually be the only information you need to make good trading decisions. Everything can be seen in the way the price of an asset moves. Indicators are just pretty representations of things you can actually see in the movements, and often times they are lagging (ie: they give you information about the market when it’s too late, when the information isn’t relevant anymore) or simply cloud your charts and prevent you from seeing anything.

Why is price action trading an art form?

price action trading discipline

Price action trading can be compared to an art form for many reasons. First of all, it takes a long time to master. Remember, you have nothing on your charts. You need to learn to spot things happening in the market just by looking at the price movements.
Second of all, price action trading relies a lot on interpretation and experience. One experienced price action trader might spot a perfect momentum trade opportunity while another experienced price action trader might decide to sit back and wait for a rejection.
All in all, while price action trading is very attractive and intriguing, remember that it will take many hours of practicing and dedication to master.

Is price action trading in binary options possible?

Price action trading is a fairly common practice amongst experienced traders. Some of the most old school forex or stocks traders only trade price action based strategies and have been doing so for many years.
With the recent appearing of binary trading though, these traders have found a new way to profit from their wealth of experience. Is price action trading in binary options possible? The answer is a definite yes!

How to trade a price action based binary options strategy

The first thing you have to keep in mind is that binary options have many, many options available. You can trade as low as 30 second expiries and as far as one month expiries, and there are a plethora of different ways to trade (one touch, high/low, Ladder and so on).
You will have to pick one and stick with it. Build your price action strategy around the way you wish to trade and the one that makes the most sense to you.
The most common way to trade binary options is the high/low option. Basically you’re predicting that the price will go either higher or lower than the price at which you placed the option.
Given that, as we said earlier, you can place short term trades (5min/15min), price action traders will thoroughly enjoy momentum trading on these expiries.

The strategy, in a nutshell

 

This is a solid strategy, but one which requires experience and discipline. The idea is to use price action based levels (support, resistance, trend lines) and trade momentum breaks off them using short term expires on your binary trading account.
Let’s say for instance that AUD/USD is approaching a strong support area. The price finally pushes through and breaks down below the support area. This would be a perfect time to place a short term put option trade (for instance 15min expiry ). This will take advantage of the strong downwards momentum offered by the break of the support area, which should net you money as you manage your trade accordingly!
Whats your experience with price action? Do you trade price action? We would love to know;) Please leave your thoughts and comments below!

Swing Trading

The Perks of Swing Trading

Before we delve into the advantages swing trading can offer to a good trader, we must define exactly what swing trading is. Swing trading, in its purest form, is all about taking long term positions in a market. It’s basically the exact opposite of day trading, which is opening and closing trades within one day (or even within an hour).
Swing trading, or long term trading, offers many advantages to new and experienced traders. More often than not, new traders get bored really quickly and decide to jump into day trading because it’s obviously more exciting to be opening tons of trades every day. However, this often turns out to be a bad decision, as new traders don’t have the experience to handle such volatility and variance in the market.
This is the reason for this article! Let’s see exactly why you should be swing trading first, then maybe day trade here and there on the side.

The Advantages of Swing Trading

swingtrading2
As we said, swing trading is all about taking long term positions in the market. One of the big advantages of swing trading is that it’s actually long term, which means you don’t have to make quick decisions all the time like you would on a day trade.
You can start trading H4 charts and only have to update your trades every 4 hours. That gives you a ton of time to study, work, have family time and so on.
Swing trading also relies on long term trends, which tend to be more reliable than short term time frames. You can get into a long trend and ride it for many months without ever looking back.
Finally, swing trading is extremely easy to back test. You can take pretty much any strategy, plot it on a H4-D1 chart, go a few years back in time and start testing. You can rely on the results you’ll get because the charts are clear and the trends are reliable. It makes it very easy for any trader to decide if a strategy is profitable or not.

Does Swing Trading apply to Binary Options?

Swing trading has been around for many years. Some might even argue that it was the first real form of trading, as back in the days where internet didn’t exist yet (I know, scary right?) the data gathering process took much longer than now, therefore it took a while to find trades and people tended to hold positions longer.
With the age of the internet came faster access to more data, and faster execution of trades. Spreads reduced as well, which drove a ton of traders to try and beat the market for a little bit of money many times per day – hence day trading.

Swing Trading and Binary Trading

swing-trading-strategy
With the recent apparition of binary trading, traders have been placing trades faster than ever. Some binary brokers offer expiries as low as 30 seconds, which literally means you could be placing trades every 30 seconds and make money.
The clash of the titans comes when you start to think about compiling swing trading with binary trading. Could it be possible to make profitable long term trades using binary options?
The answer is a quite resounding yes!
Swing trading is all about trends. Whether it is in the stock market, forex or in binaries, if you’re looking to place long term positions you have to look for the trend and adapt your position to it. Therefore it’s not unconceivable to build a strategy that revolves around finding a long term trend in H4/D1 charts and placing One Day expiries or longer on your binary trading platform.

Risks and Reward

Risk and reward swing trading
The biggest risk you’ll encounter while swing trading in the options market is boredom. Be very sure to build a strategy that you know works (hint: backtesting!) and that you trust, or you’ll quickly go back to those potentially deadly 30 second trades.
The reward however is huge. If you play the trends well, you could pile trades up and make a ton of money following the herd of traders.

High Frequency Trading

High frequency trading on the financial markets can be an exhilarating ride but it can also be a rather expensive ride if you either do not have a plan or if your plan is very poor. When it comes to high frequency trading you need to have the right mindset because it can be one of the most profitable yet stressful forms of trading on the markets. You are likely going to have fair amount of losses but it is made up for by an even greater amount of wins.

What is High Frequency Trading?

Typically, high frequency trading is done by very powerful high speed computers that execute trades by transmitting millions of orders at lightning speed with the ability of making millions of dollars in just a few milliseconds. In fact, some of the high frequency trading algorithms used by the top high frequency traders enable them to literally look into a crystal ball just before making a trade to find out where a stock is going before they place their order and crazy thing is that it’s totally legal.

History of High Frequency Trading

high frequency trading computers

  • In 1998, USA Securities and Exchange Commission authorized electronic exchanges to integrate High Frequency Trading that could execute trades 1000 times faster than humans.

  • In 2000 High Frequency Trading accounted for fewer than 10% of equity orders.

  • In 2002, HFT( High Frequency Trading) made up 56% of the equity trades in the US market.

  • In 2011, ‘Fitnetix’ developed a microchip called “Nano trading technology” that revolutionized high speed trading and boosted HFT to a level where trades could be executed in nanoseconds.

  • In 2012, HFT made up the largest amount of equity trades. Estimated at 70% of all equity trades were high frequency trades.

  •  In 2013, It is estimated that $600 million worth of assets were traded in just a few milliseconds through the use of HFT, a record which has since been passed with the rapid development of many different high frequency trading systems.

The Different Types of High Frequency Trading Strategies

high frequency trading rigs

High speed trading has been taking investment houses by storm, capable of turning over large amounts of capital because of the computerized advantages involved. When High Frequency Trading is done with large investments, the profits can be substantial. There are many variations of high frequency trading strategies that exist and executed by programmed computers using pre-written algorithms. These algorithms are able to factor in may variable market conditions such as trend direction, pair movement and correlation, breakouts and rebounds of support and resistant levels, approach angles as many more. These same algorithms can also incorporate technical indicators such as the MACD, Stochastics and moving averages. Just about any technical indicator can be incorporated into a HFT algorithm and the most advanced traders develop, adapt and use these High Frequency Trading setups to scalp the market taking fast profits.

How People are using High Frequency Trading

high frequency trader

HFT has been around for many years now and people are jumping the queue to grab a bite from some of the best high frequency trade orders. In fact, there are so many High Frequency Trading Systems out there that it has created a lot of mixed views about HFT and the debate about the legality of it is likely to continue in the absence of concrete steps taken by the market regulators. With the right regulations in place, there would be much more transparency and less volatility. Ever seen the market behave radically without explanation? Some Big Shot Banker probably just fired up his HFTS ( high frequency trading system) and it can affect a lot of short-term investors as well are professional traders who are participating in the same market. As an individual investor or trader, rather than waiting for the regulators to bring about radical changes with regards to high-frequency trading, learn proper risk management techniques that will protect you when the market goes against you, limiting your exposure and ultimately saving your capital.

While it’s impossible to say how each and every trade placed affects the financial market or whether or not the trading world has been helped or harmed by high frequency trading, the biggest winners when it comes to trading appear to be institutional investors who are patient traders and the knowledgeable investors who trade individually, both types of investors benefit from the much higher payouts and narrower spreads that exist today. The Biggest losers are the institutional investors who have not adapted their investment and trading strategies to the modern paradigm. The most frequent losers are the gamblers, the risk takers and traders who trade without proper knowledge of the market or without a trading strategy.

Technology Used In High Frequency Trading

High frequency trading is a primary form of algorithmic trading in finance. Specifically, it is the use of sophisticated technological tools (highly configured computers) and computer algorithms to rapidly trade securities. Individual Traders can also be considered high frequency traders if they execute a large volume of trades in a short period of time.

Relation to Binary Options

binary options +high frequency trading

One of the more advanced strategies you can use while trading binary options is called the high frequency strategy. However, it is not a strategy that I would recommended you focus on if you are a new trader. Once you have more experience, the strategy can work very well and can generate a large amount of profits in a short time. In most cases this strategy is only used by professional traders who use have access to automated trading algorithms and they use these algorithms to execute multiple trades in milliseconds which is just not humanly possible.
To effectively use a high frequency trading strategy you will need to make several quick trades. In binary options, the shortest trade you can make is 30 or 60 seconds trades which are both suitable for the strategy. The strategy is fairly simple – All you will need to do is place a series of trades based on in-depth market analysis and signal identification. Access to the latest information and tools will certainty give you a profitable edge but ultimately your profitability depends on your ability to read the market.

Conclusion- Should Traders be worried?

High frequency Trading is evolving at a rapid rate with the technological advancements of the modern world reaching new levels of growth. In the coming years we can expect high frequency trading to become more and more common and more advanced. Personally, I don’t have any beef with high frequency trading, I do have a few High Frequency Systems in my trading tool box but I prefer to have the final say in all my trades. I use them as more signal/forecast service to identify possible reversals, rebounds and breakouts and for that reason I believe high frequency trading definitely has its benefits.

The Binary Option Basics every trader should know

develop a binary option strategy

Binary Option Basics consist of the fundamentals or the essentials things any person needs to know or needs to have in order to participate in binary options trading. The most essential requirements of trading binary options is the need for an internet connection and hardware from which to trade from such as a PC or tablet, so if you are reading this on a website then you already have all the necessary hardware needed to begin trading. Any trader or new investor should make an effort to understand the binary option basics in order have the highest chance of trading success while participating on the financial markets

Basically there are two options: Bull or Bear

Binary-Options-Put-or-Call-400x300

Call and Put, Up Or Down, Bull or Bear– These are your options while trading on the binary market. The reason Binary Options is so simple is because there are essentially only two basic options to choose from while trading. Financial Markets rise and fall- in other words they go up and down. How you make money with binary trading is by correctly predicting the direction your chosen asset will go in- Up or Down, Call or Put. You need to predict whether the value of your chosen asset  will increase or decrease by your chosen expiry time.

 Basic Option #2 : Calculating Expiry time

Expiry time

Once you have predicted either Call or Put (up or down) you will then need to choose the expiry time. The expiry time is the time at which the option contract expires. So in order for a call trade to be successful the price of the asset would have to be higher  than when the option was purchased and visa versa for a put option. Choosing an expiry time is one binary option basics that is easily calculated by looking at how the much the market has moved in its last swing (top to bottom) and how long it took to move from the most recent high to its most recent low.  When it comes to the basics of binary trading, choosing the correct expiry time is often a little tricky for beginners so I suggest a little further study into ADR (average daily range) and ATR( average true range) alternatively you can use a reliable signal service to accurately calculate expiry for your trading

How to Develop a Basic Binary Option Strategy

Okay, we have covered the binary option basics of Call and Put options as well as expiry times. Now we are going to dive into how you can develop a simple Binary option strategy that suits your trading style, time allowance and temperament. First thing you should to understand about trading is that you don’t get paid based on how much you trade. You get paid according to how successful your trading strategy is.

In the world of trading quality beats quantity any day so you really only need to focus on the quality of your trades rather than the quantity of your trades. That way you will only need to trade quality trades for 1-2hours a day to make the same money that trading quantity all day would produce.

Basic analysis of the market should be done in 15minutes

market analysis

Keep it simple stupid- Stick to the binary option basics-  It shouldn’t take hours to analyse the market.

Technical analysis of simple price action will tell you which direction the market is heading.  Fundamental analysis using the economic calendar ( news releases, world events)  will tell you if and when you should be trading on a particular market.

As a general rule I do not participate 30minutes before or 30minutes after any major news releases that could affect the asset I am looking to trade in. It is possible to profit from news releases but that requires a particular strategy optimised for highly volatile conditions and is not a basic necessity for trading binary options.

Binary Broker Basics

Binary Option Brokers are an essential part of trading as they provide the platforms the trades are executed upon. There are many different binary option platforms available on the market today and each one of them offer traders the ability to participate on the financial market. Before you go right ahead and think you are safe with any binary option broker please visit the binary options blacklist and do your research before investing your hard earned capital with an unreliable brokerage.

Choosing a reliable binary broker is one of the basic requirements for new investors looking to participate in binary trading.

Binary Signals Basics

Signals are trade signals indicating the direction of market.  Ideally they are generated by market analysts that factor in both technical and fundamental aspects of the market in order to predict the direction of an underlying asset. In most cases the signal is placed manually by the trader who is receiving the signals from the signal provider.  As technology has evolved new technologies have been developed by the leaders in the industry. Semi Auto Signals trading is now possible and is a much easier and efficient way to trade binary options profitably using signals.

Basic Scams in Binary Options

scams

The binary options bonus scam- Many legitimate binary option broker will offer traders a trading bonus upon deposit, for example: upon the deposit of $500 a broker may offer a 100% bonus so the trader has more capital to start trading with. The downside to this is what is written in the fine print: A trader must rollover (trade) the amount of the bonus 10x (or whatever the amount is) before a withdrawal can be made. The bonus is not a scam as it is certainly an advantage for high frequency traders that turn over a high volume of trades. The “Bonus” is a tactic brokers use to lock in the funds of inexperienced and new traders should be aware of the Ts and C’s before accepting a bonus.

Basically, Thats It!

thats_all_folks_wallpaper

That just about wraps it up for the basics of binary options folks, There is so much information out there when it comes to binary options as it is a rapidly growing industry but all in all it’s one of the most simplistic forms of investing and it is a very profitable industry with some of the highest payouts of the investing world. Binary Options have been kept in the dark as a lot of misconceptions cloud peoples perceptions of what binary options are due to the number of unscrupulous scams being offered by commission driven vendors but let this not blind you to the financial abundance lifestyle that is achievable through trading.

The Successful Edge

They call us gamblers. They say we depend on luck.

They claim that no one can beat the market, and we’re wasting our time.

This isn’t a real job, we should give up our hobby, they say.

But if they only knew… that we are the masters of risk,

the essence of entrepreneurial spirit, the liquidity of the economy.

We live by our wits, eating what we hunt, adapting to the ever-changing jungle landscape
that is the market.

We trade the currency you circulate when you shop.

We trade the companies you work for each day.

We trade the gold on the watch on your wrist.

While you wilt at the sight of failure and loss.

We relish adversity.

We are not afraid to take losses, to talk about our losses
to rebound from our losses. Those are our defining moments!

Discipline and self-awareness are our companions. We are what you’ve always wanted to be.

And we’re coming out of the shadows.

We are traders.

Oil Millionaire App Review

The Oil Millionaire app Scam Review

oil millionaire app

 

The Oil Millionaire app is automated trading software owned by Donald Olsson. The Oil App was built to trade oil exclusively using binary options on auto pilot for insane profits. Donald Olsson the Oil tycoon behind the creation of the App, claims to have 10 professional traders monitoring the back end of the software to ensure all trades are winners.

I had to chuckle a little when I saw the oil millionaire app because it’s a different approach to a few of the other similar scams out there on the market at the moment but the thing that really pisses me off about this offer is that Donald Olsson or whoever is behind the oil app is presenting it as a RISK FREE investment opportunity which is complete bull crap.oil millionaire app risk free

With every investment there is at least some level of risk, especially while trading on the financial market. Risk Management is an integral part in trading binary options with success.  To call the Oil Millionaire App risk free is purely a marketing tactic employed to disarm any concerns fence sitting depositors would have. The Oil App is in-fact about as risky as they get.

You see the reason why there are so many of these Scam offers is because the Binary Options market is a rapidly growing industry and this is attracting a whole new breed of vendors. The money hungry online marketer is infiltrating the binary options software market with bad products, bogus offers and even worse intentions. The Binary Options market has been no stranger to difficulties. For many years, binary trading has been under a dark shadow due to the deceptive nature of some of the unregulated binary options brokers. This danger is now amplified by vendors who are willing to say and do anything in order to get commissions by referring traders to sign up with these brokers.

Okay, so what if in fact this is legitimate and I’m just being too sceptical?

Yes, the Oil Millionaire App is pretty cool, I like the idea of a Rich Oil Tycoon sharing his wealth amongst a lucky few but that is just not happening people. In my experience as a trader, I can tell you that any “system” that claims it has a 100% hit rate is a scam all packaged up ready to go. Just take a look at some of the trade results offered by the Oil millionaire app below and you will see what I am talking about.

The Binary options traders of today need to understand that there are a multitude of unscrupulous vendors in this market and 90% of them are all using the exact same marketing methods as the Oil App and offering bogus offers. A quick way to recognise a scam like the Oil Millionaire app is if you come across a binary options software or product that’s claiming that you’ll be a millionaire in a month and don’t have to do any work, think twice about it and don’t reward the scam vendors with commissions they don’t deserve.
