  1. Beware of Binary options scam (PAYPEREX)

    I invested 90% of my retirement payment on binary options with the mindset of getting it multiplied and enjoying a better retirement life. It was sweet and smooth from the start, withdrawals were easy and consistent until it gets to a point I started to be denied withdrawals and that was how I lost all money, I couldn't get my investment amount back not talk of the bonuses. I contacted several lawyers but it was all waste of time and money, they couldn't render an inch of help. God so good to my old self and family, I later met with a certified binary options recovery expert that helped me recover my money within 5days from the brokers(paperex.com), it was worth it, he was able to retrieve my funds. If you have found yourself in same situation as me you can contact the expert on '' Hacknet1seven1 ( A T ) protonmail ( d o t c o m )" also he can render any other desired hacking services, I can assure he would be able to help you just as he helped me, you can give him a try if you don't mind. Binary options brokers shouldn't get away with this.
  2. Options trading are one of many methods investors are using to earn money in both forex and stock trading. Binary options trading are also known as digital options trading and give buyers the right to buy underlying assets at a fixed price, also referred to as the strike price. Underlying assets can be in form of products, commodities, stocks, indices like the NASDAQ and currencies. They allows buyers to manage the assets, expiry time, and asset prediction time. The only problem is that no one knows if the price of assets will either be high or low by the end of the expiry time. This simply means anything can happen during trading. Binary options trading need investors to have good judgment and knowledge. A buyer has the availability of digital options to decide whether the asset he or she intends to buy will actually target the strike price at a selected expiry time. This could be the end of the day or week or even at the end of the nearest hour. Assuming a trader wants to invest $200 on a digital option on BP oil, with a 70% return rate and with the expiry time at the end of the day with the rate of oil being 70.8894, the investor will earn $270 if the price of oil closes at 70.8894 or above and will also get a $15 payback if the price of oil is 70.8894 or below. That is one way traders earn from binary options trading in commodities, though most people prefer stocks because there are various stock options to choose from. There are also those people who work in their respective jobs and are not able to keep up with forex and stock. Binary options also requires investors to follow it closely so as to earn profits, and thanks to technology, mobile and online trading makes it easier and flexible for them and may advance even more in futures. The forex is also available to those who own iPhones. For those who may not understand how it work, then there are various business schools or training institutions offering education on that particular method of trading. Binary options are a good way of investing and every individual is encouraged by practitioners in the stock market to take advantage. On the other hand there are people who are cautious with their money and hesitant to invest simply because prices of commodities, stocks and even currencies are unpredictable resulting in losses. Lots of money has been lost but that is normal; you may gain one day, the next you lose. Countries like the U.K, USA, Germany, Italy and most developed countries have investors benefiting from binary options trading as word spreads of its success all over the world.
  3. Hi there I think I have typical situation like many other regular traders, but I just want to ask if there are any control - management for unexpected spy, when you see no fundamental news in that trading period, I trade period from 9pm to 10pm my time GMT + 2. what a hell going sometimes in market and mostly in last 5 minutes when I do trade from 9pm to 9:30pm or from 9:30pm to 10pm, in last few minutes sometimes happens huge spy against my signals and I lose the money. For example I do call EUR/USD from 9:00 to 9:30 and from 9:26 minute market change a lot and everything starts going against my trade. All 26 minutes was everything fine, just after 26th minute it goes against and I lose, it is so hilarious to watch sometimes No Fundamental events in that hour, market trending is good enough and easy for me to read and make profitable decision, bust just some mystical things happens in even last minute or in last 30 seconds. How to predict it, how to control it and how to manage trade (double trade or not?) Thanks For Answers Tadas
  4. Binary options are also called fixed return options because the payout is fixed, and also called "all or none" options because the trader either receives all the money being paid out for a correct trade, or none of the money paid out if the chosen result is wrong.
  5. Article By Thebinaryoptionsbroker.com Binary Options Vs. Forex Trade For any trading investment, investors must compare binary options vs Forex trading factors appropriately. In the past few years, binary options are becoming most common. The main reason being the options offers high profit returns and are easily traded. The binary option involves the betting over a currency pair that it will expire in-the-money. If positive, it returns a fixed amount, not withstanding how far the option goes. At times the option only pays off only if the option goes in-the-money, regardless of price at expiry. For example if a binary had a strike price of 1.3, the long position would return $100 per contract regarding the higher price than strike price at expiry. The options are standardized and traded on exchanges. On the other hand, in Forex trading, there are many shared features. They also provide the opportunity, but not the need to buy (call) or sell (put) a certain underlying asset at a particular price (strike price) by or on a particular date (expiry date).Forex trading does not involve currency pairing, but rather the future trading on the currency pair. It is the exchange-traded agreement to buy or sell at some point for a price that relies on initial factors. When trading options, one has to predict if the price of an asset will go up or down from its current value over a given period of time. For instance, the current price of USD IS 1.31 and one thinks its might increase in the next hour. The individual can place the bet and wait for the one hour. Any correct predictions result to up to 80% profit on one's investment. While, Forex trading one speculates that the value of a particular currency will increase or decrease in comparison to another, with a target of making profit. For instance, when the current price of a currency is 1.4 and one thinks the price will shoot in the near future. One buys 1 lot of the currency pair and wait for the price to increase until the desired point before closing the trade at profit. In options, margin is not used when trading. People can still make great percentage profits on their investments, so traders find binary options very attractive. The advantage is that an investor can never get a margin call. While in Forex trading, people use margin to trade. Each broker determines the maximum margin and sometime it can be up to 1:500. Margin allows investors to increase their investment capitals so that they can make an increased trade and make more profit for the winning trades. In binary options, before making a trade, the investors will know the exact payout and loss return percentages to be made for the particular option at expiry. Brokers can offer payouts up to 80% or even more depending on the option traded. Other brokers never offer loss backs, this means that if an investor's option trade is a losing one, the investor will definitely loose the invested amount and not more. In Forex trading, the investors never know the maximum profit to be made on a particular trade. The investor can always regulate an order and be guaranteed some percentage profit if a stop regulation is initiated. Any losses and profits in Forex trading can be managed with the regulations to limit or stop orders. Actually, the maximum loss in this trading is an investor loosing all the money in the trading account. In binary options, there are no spreads, swap or commissions when trading. While in Forex trading, an investor has to consider the spreads and swap, and any commissions. Each broker in binary options determines the maximum and minimum trading size for their clients. Sometimes the maximum amount can be up to $5000 and the minimum up to $5 per trade. While in Forex trading, brokers allow their clients to trade smaller lots such as 1000 units of the base currency in the trade. They also determine the maximum trading amount. Binary options are available in five types which an investor can choose to trade. They include; 60 seconds option, high/low, touch/No touch option, option builder and boundary option. In Forex trading, there are a variety of order types. The most essential ones are the market orders of buying/selling. Other advanced orders include stop, OCO, trailing stop, limit, hedge orders among others. Therefore, investors must be able to lay out the factors of binary options vs Forex trading in order to choose an effective investment.
  6. Binary Options

    i've come across this way of trading it seems alot simpler any thoughts would be appreciated thanks kent..
  7. Hedging in Binary

    Note:- I will try to use simple forex vocab so that everyone can understand it. I hate using complex trading vocab because I remember when I was a novice, I didn't understand a single word written in "guru articles". There was a time, when I used to call Elliott waves idiot waves. For me, I have learnt a few powerful (at least for me) hedging techniques. These aren't developed or made by me but by learning and practicing, I came to know that these techniques can increase ur potential gains as well reduce ur losses (this is actually an objective of hedging technique). Lets start with simpler one. 1- Breakout failure. This hedging strategy is not specifically for binary but can be used in almost all forms of trading. I will discuss it in binary option scenario. Many traders wait for the breakout and as soon as it happens, they purchase an option. Now there is a probability of breakout failure. What if this happens? I am not here to explain breakout strategies so it doesn't really matter which strategy is being used to identify a breakout. Probability of successful breakout can be high or it can be low. Lets take a look at the "breakout" image. (made by an expert painter). You were expecting bullish trend with a conqueror look on ur face. You might succeed but what if the breakout fails? Do u accept that u lost the trade and the entire option money? Incase of forex or any other market where u have control to limit losses by closing trade early, u can close it. But incase of binary option, u define ur risk before u enter a trade. The reality is u do have control over ur binary options even after u purchase them in the form of hedging. You can limit losses by hedging techniques. Simply buy another option in favor of "breakout failure" (in my example it will be put"). Now u will have two options:- one in favor of call (which is most probably loosing) and another option (after breakout failure) in favor of put (which will most probably win). Maximum loss will be the difference between what u gain and what u loose which is much less than what u were loosing before hedging. If u want numbers to be involved in this hedging game then best way is to try it out. As an example if both options r of $100 and payout is $75 then loss would be $25 (considering u get nothing when u loose) instead of $100 which u were loosing without hedging. You can use this technique in many other scenarios where u analysis about trend fails. But be cautious and do not fall into "Greed Trap". For example u hedge ur loss with bigger amount considering that breakout failure will continue and "why not gain instead of loosing" So u buy another option with bigger amount (say $200). There can be another breakout failure waiting for this opportunity (breakout really enjoys failing especially when u r novice). Worst Case scenario is both options fail to end in the money. You loose all invested money (if broker offers no payment incase of loss. Some offer 10% to 15% of invested amount incase of loss). 2- Hedging with alternative binary options This technique is also used to increase ur gains. Example: You purchase a standard binary option in favor of call because u r expecting the market to move upwards. Assuming ur analysis is correct, u will win and thats all. Hey!!!!.. it was just an assumption which can be wrong. If it goes wrong, then u need to think of some strategy which can protect ur money and why not pocket a little gains. Experienced traders here will be thinking of 100s of strategies but I am with YOU (poor novice). You might have heard about one touch options. These options pay u upto 500% of ur investment (take a break folks, I can see mouth-watering). Conditions r really strict in case of these options and if u r not good analyst, u will loose most of the time. Think with ur brain that if they r paying upto 500%, it will not be an easy analysis. There r lower payouts too on one touch options with lesser strict conditions and where ur analysis has higher probability of success. I know at this time most of u have forgotten about "we have bought a standard binary option and we r finding something to hedge it". Now ur analysis leads u to assume that next week, market will move like ......... (whatever is the most speedy thing in the universe). This analysis further leads u to assume that market will touch a certain level at least once in a week. You have already purchased a standard binary option which will only be profitable if the expiry price is above (incase of call) the purchase price. To hedge it and to gain more profit, u buy another one-touch option (coz ur analysis led u to do so). Worst case scenario is, again, if both options loose. (Scenario 1 in "one touch hedge" image) In "one touch hedge" image, best case scenario would be scenario 2 which will result in high profits which can offset looses caused by more than 1 trade. A mixed scenario of one loss and one win can either result in lower loss or a little gain. Any thoughts and comments r welcome. Critics... dun stay away.
  8. The latest trend in the extremely exciting field of binary options is the 60 second binary options. Binary options are already preferred by a lot of traders and if statistics are to be believed, the 60 second binary options have improved its popularity by many times. Because it is a relatively new option, there are many questions regarding risk, suitability, profitability and nature of 60 second binary options that investors are having. The following pointers will help in solving all those queries – 1. Comparison With 15 – 60 Minute Binary Options – An unofficial rule for any kind of trading is that the sooner you get out of the market, the lower the chances are of you losing any money. Although this isn’t true for all situations, a volatile market like that of binary options shows patterns of adhering to this rule. However, that has gone for a toss because of the 60 second binary options. You can go anywhere in 60 seconds because the time is even lesser than 15 minute and 60 minute options. There is no scope for making any error because the risk is a lot more than 15 – 60 minute options but as you know, higher the risk, higher the reward. Another thing is that with the standard trades, not only do you need to find out the right time to enter the market but also the right time to exit it. Binary Options free traders from that decision and its hassles. You just need to find your execution time and nothing else. The 60 second option further reinforces this principle. 2. Kind Of Traders Who Trade In 60 Second Option – Obviously, the scalpers will benefit greatly from these options because they make profits (or losses) from small fluctuations that occur in a relatively small period of time. The best way in which a scalper can gain is by trading on the bid-ask spread by buying at bid price and selling at the offer. The short time period exactly matches the scalpers trading style of not holding any position for a long period of time. It is also important to note that the profits scalpers will make would be rather low when you compare them to long position holders. Although if you wish to avoid such a situation, seeking assistance from binary brokers can be of great help. 3. Less Uncertainty, More Comfort – For day traders, the longer the time they hold a position, the more uncomfortable it becomes. The idea is simple – when you follow a trend, you will notice that it goes up for a while and then down and then up but less than last time and so on. The main reason for this is the time factor involved. The less the time, the less the chances are of other forces acting up. However, this factor is nullified as the time period increases because then the uncertainty level increases too. Hence, for day traders, binary options of 60 second time period are like a blessing because of the low uncertainty. 4. Marginally Higher Profits – Not only are the profits a little higher than standard trading, because of the lack of uncertainty, your profits are locked at a precise point. This greatly benefits the trader because you know where you stand and that really clears matters. 5. Trading Strategy To Follow – There are some basic strategies you could follow in 60 second binary option trading. One of them is the news based strategy. Since the time period is so short, any small news makes great ripples in your trading. Positive news would push your profits up. Also, over time, the market would realize that the news is rather insignificant, which would again plummet the market downwards. But you would already have gained 65 – 75% till then. Also, if you are trading with a large amount, the fluctuations influence you more so. However, scalpers and other day traders usually do not involve themselves with large amounts, so you don’t need to worry about this if you one of them. Whatever position you hold, in 60 seconds, the position reverses itself eventually but not fast enough for you to not have gained something.

  9. Over the years, more and more people have invested in the stock market, traded in commodities and speculated in foreign exchange. They all have one common aim — to make money. Making Quick Money Trading and investment have become bigger attractions to many people because they do offer the prospect of making a lot of money very quickly. And it is true that some successful investors have made millions through their efforts. It’s also true that the less successful ones have lost out, sometimes by very substantial amounts. Investing in shares, commodities and other assets can require a lot of money because you have to actually buy the assets. You make your money if their value grows but, equally, you risk losing everything. Binary options trading provides an alternative since you don’t actually have to buy anything. You simply predict the way an asset’s price will move and gain a reward if you are correct. The amount of your return depends on the value of your stake but is often up to 75%. If your prediction is wrong, of course, you do lose money. However, this is generally much less than you risk when making speculative investments. Additionally, you can set a limit on how much you stand to lose so you are in control to a large degree. All Trader Types So, is binary options trading suitable for everyone? For the novice investor as well as the experienced trader? Well it is, providing you use a reputable, capable and experienced organization as your binary options broker. A company such as Banc De Binary specializes in binary options trading and has developed a flexible and easy-to-use platform that is suitable for all levels of need. The company also provides help and advice on its website URL Deleted by Moderator, with financial experts available and a personal coach on hand for those who open an account. This level of service does make binary options trading available to all types of investor.
  10. Technical analysis plays a big part in the success of some binary options traders. And the level of success sometimes depends on how accomplished they are at reading and understanding charts. Price charts can be used to track movements on all types of underlying assets, whether market indices, individual stocks, currency pairs or commodities. Different types of chart are available, such as line charts, bar charts and histograms, but will all generally plot the price of an asset by time or volume. However, whatever its type, a chart is considerably more useful if it contains up-to-date data, such as the real-time prices that Banc De Binary posts on its website URL Deleted by Moderator. Time Price Charts The most common type of price chart plots movements over time. Choosing the time intervals for a chart will depend on the type of trader you are. If, for example, you undertake short-term trades, you may plot price changes at 60-minute intervals or less, enabling you to see and predict likely price movements in periods of one hour at most. If you go for longer-term trades, you may mark changes at daily, weekly or other suitable intervals. For the longer time periods, you may wish to see the open price at the start of the period, the high and low prices during it and the close price at the end of the time interval. You can, therefore, choose a chart type that allows you to see all price levels within a period. Volume Price Charts Another type of price chart plots movements by volume. These are particularly useful when trading volumes are not consistent, possibly falling to low levels during the night. For this type of chart, a price level is plotted after a number of contracts have been made or a certain volume of commodity has been traded, rather than plotting at set time intervals. The effect is that the chart has fewer entries during periods of low activity and so focuses more on times when levels are more normal. Either type of chart provides valuable guidance for binary options traders, providing its data is current.
  11. If you’re looking for a different way to trade, which will expand your growth opportunities without increasing the risk to your portfolio, binary options might be just what you need. Predicting Rises and Falls A binary option is so called because it offers only two possible outcomes. You are predicting something will either rise or fall in value over a set period and are staking a certain amount of money on the result. If your prediction is correct, you win a set percentage of your stake, otherwise you lose a predetermined amount. Because there are only two possible outcomes, binary options are sometimes known as digital options or ‘all or nothing’ options. With binary options, you choose the asset to invest in (it could be a stock market, an individual stock, a commodity or a currency), the size of your stake, the length of the period and the way the asset will move. If you expect it to rise, purchase a ‘call’ option; otherwise, choose a ‘put’ option when predicting a fall in value. You will know how much you stand to gain or lose, which will be quoted as a percentage of your investment. Consequently, once your chosen period ends, you will know how much you have won or lost. When you predict correctly, you are referred to as being ‘in the money’ and are paid the set percentage of your stake. Getting it wrong means you are ‘out of the money’ and lose the stated amount. How It Works As an example, the Euro may have reached 1.45907 against the US Dollar but you expect it to rise further during the day. You may purchase, through an organization such as Banc De Binary, a $500 call option that expires at 9am the following day, receiving a payment of 75% if you’re right and losing 90% if you’re wrong. If the price is $1.46 by 9am, you gain $375 in less than one day. If it’s 1.45, you lose $450. Binary options can be of two types — ‘cash or nothing’ where you receive a fixed amount if you end up ‘in the money’ or ‘asset for nothing’ where the payout depends on the asset’s value. With markets becoming increasingly volatile, binary options are a popular investment tool.
  12. Some binary options traders use technical analysis to keep track of price movements. This allows them to establish trends, recognize patterns and identify where momentum is developing. The whole point of this is to be able to predict future movements more accurately. Setting the Time Interval Technical analysis is generally about producing price charts that track price changes at set intervals. The length of the interval often depends on whether the trader makes short-term or long-term trades. A few minutes may be appropriate for the former while intervals of days or weeks may be sufficient for the latter. Traders have to decide which is the best type of chart to use to track prices and a line chart is often chosen because it is the most simple. A typical chart will show the asset price along the y-axis (vertically), plotting this normally by time or sometimes in terms of volume along the x-axis (horizontally). This type of chart is easy to read because the trader only has to find the required time along the x-axis and then look above it to see the price at that time. A line connects the price points on the graph, running left to right to clearly show how the price has moved over a set period. However, the line chart has limitations for binary options traders because the line will show a smooth progression between the price points when in fact there may have been significant fluctuations during the intervening period. Fluctuating Prices When long time intervals are plotted, the price may have gone up and down several times between any two price points but the line will show a smooth progression from one to the next. The ideal situation for many traders is to see the high, low, open and close prices for each period, which can be shown on bar and candlestick charts. Nevertheless, line charts are useful to show general movements, are valued for their simplicity and are usually adequate for long-term traders who do not need to see each movement in detail. Some binary options trading organizations, such as Banc De Binary, show price line charts on their websites. They also provide real-time price data from which charts can be built.
  13. Binary Options are a very good way to make fast money; however, you have to know who you're dealing with, or else you can risk losing a lot of money. Banc De Binary came through for me as the 5th platform i've tried. Supprisingly enough; i found a rich asset list, great payoff's, responsive site with great customer and technical support round the clock. But, let's face it. A fast website and nice people aren't enough to make a successful brokership. Banc De Binary have specialist brokers and analysts that eat, breathe and live Digital Options. This allows the bank to guide you on how to make the best investments with your money. Like i mentioned earlier; i've been around the platform sites, and i've stuck with bbinary.com for almost a year now. I've enjoyed fast withdrawals, and rumor has it that BDB is even coming out with international credit cards! I wonder what they'll think of next :-)
