Binary Option Trading?

Recommended Posts

hey buddy, im new here as well. i primarily swing trade - but i also trade binaries thru Nadex. they have some good "getting started" type videos, but ur better off on YouTube.

 

*steer clear of anything that seems even slightly shady*

 

if ur in it to get rich quick, like most of the videos on YouTube show, (and is possible surprisingly) ur gonna hurt ur feelings and ur wallet... fast. it is speculative gambling, not to be confused with the losses u can take as a normal options or futures trader.

 

u really have to stay up on ur news, esp depending on the underlying asset. i usually stick to FX binaries, but im thinking abt playing the e-mini futures this wk. shit, Nadex even lets the bet on upcoming events lol

 

with all that being said, dont let anyone stop u from ur goals. lots of money can be lost on binaries, and lots of money can be made. just become a good speculator. and if u dont mind my asking - what data service do u use? because u need a good one.

Trading binary option is just like trading forex but on a different platform and includes stock trading; an adequate knowledge of forex market, trends and charts is needed by a binary option trader. You can visit the 24opitons.Com website and go through the materials they have in the educational section.

DEFINITION OF 'BINARY OPTION'

A type of option in which the payoff is structured to be either a fixed amount of compensation if the option expires in the money, or nothing at all if the option expires out of the money. The success of a binary option is thus based on a yes/no proposition, hence “binary”. A binary option automatically exercises, meaning the option holder does not have the choice to buy or sell the underlying asset.

 

Investors may find binary options attractive because of their apparent simplicity, especially since the investor must essentially only guess whether something specific will or will not happen. For example, a binary option may be as simple as whether the share price of ABC Company will be above $25 on February 7th at 10:45 am. If ABC’s share price is $27 at the appointed time, the option automatically exercises and the option holder gets a preset amount of cash.

 

Binary options are significantly different from vanilla options. They are occasionally traded on platforms regulated by the SEC and other regulatory agencies, but are most likely traded over the Internet on platforms existing outside of regulations. Because these platforms operate outside of regulations, investors are at greater risk of fraud. For example, a binary options trading platform may require the investor to deposit a sum of money to purchase the option. If the option expires out-of-the-money, meaning the investor chose the wrong proposition, the trading platform may take the entire sum of deposited money with no refund provided.

I have tried some binary options but I considered Forex trading as the best as it gives me the best results.

 

Yes, I also consider Forex trading as the best. I have traded with various binary options but never earned much, but as and when I started dealing in currencies and found my current broker I have earned a lot in Forex Trading.

Binary options are the equivalent of straight up gambling. There is no real way to make consistent money with binary options. It's very simple: binary option brokers act as banks - i.e. you make deposits with them - and then you literally bet on the market.

 

Let's say that you have 50:50 chances of winning any trade (best case scenerio...this isn't talking about all the other scammy stuff they do in risk analysis)

 

You're returns are "up to 70%!!!!" (they advertise it as if it some big achievement)

 

But basically on these odds of 1:1 winning the trade, you're going to lose on average 30% of your money ever other trade until you have no money left.

 

You are much better off learning how to trade stocks or futures.

 

 

Binary options are all market makers and so many scammers among them -- I'd stay away....Forex is more profitable.

Binary options are not gambling simply because there are regularities one can exploit in order to make money. These are called chart patterns and are used all around the globe, not only by binary options traders and forex traders but also by investment banks' employees who run the trading desks.

Binary options are deceptively simple to understand, making them a popular choice for low-skilled traders. The most commonly traded instrument is a high-low or fixed-return option that provides access to stocks, indices, commodities and foreign exchange.

    • Bitcoin (BTC) Consolidates As Bears And Bulls Tussle Above $9,400 Support Key Resistance Zones: $10,000, $11,000, $12,000 Key Support Zones: $7, 000, $6, 000, $5,000 BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging Bitcoin has failed to break above $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls made two unsuccessful attempts at the resistance. In the recent one, the bears took the price to a low of $9,290 and then pulled back above $9,400. In the interim, the price is fluctuating above $9,400 and approaching the high of $9,800. As the bulls have failed to push above the overhead resistance, the pair may commence a range movement. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that if the bears break below the $9,400 support, selling pressure may resume. Meanwhile, BTC may continue the range-bound movement. BTC/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: After the downward move of Bitcoin, the Relative Strength Index has also fallen to level 52. This simply means the coin is above the centerline 50. In other words, BTC is in an uptrend and it is likely to rise. Price broke the support line of the ascending channel. The uptrend will be in proper perspective only when the bulls break into the ascending channel. BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bearish On the 4- hour chart, Bitcoin now trades between $9,400 and $10,200 after the first breakdown at the $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls tested the resistance at $10,200 twice , before the downward move. The large bearish candlesticks tested a low of $9,290. However, the small body candlesticks that follow are called indecisive candlesticks. BTC/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Presently, BTC is trading above a 25% range of the daily stochastic. That is the coin is in the bullish trend zone. The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are sloping horizontally indicating a sideways trend. General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC) From every indication, if the bulls fail to push above the overhead resistance, the price action in October and November will repeat itself. For the past three days, BTC is still fluctuating above $9,400. Instrument: BTC/USD Order: Sell Entry price: $9,700 Stop: $9,900 Target: $8,400 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.

    • The Sharp Recovery In EURJPY Lose Momentum, Falters Beneath The Level At 121.00 EURJPY Price Analysis – February  21 The single European currency rose 88 basis points or 0.73% against the Japanese yen in the previous session. After two consecutive sessions showing strong growth, EURJPY is now losing some momentum amid JPY bulls. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 122.37, 122.87, 121.00 Support Levels: 119.99, 117.08, 115.83 EURJPY Long term Trend: Ranging The EURJPY rebound from the level of 118.46 continues to advance from the previous session, but today it has stalled. Super-speed acceleration claims that a decline from 122.87 level could have ended in three waves to 118.46 level. However, the support level formed by the intersection of the moving average of 5 and 13 at 119.90 level can support the exchange rate during the trading session on Friday, while greater advance can continue from the level of 115.83. EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging From an analysis of the 4-hour time frame, the intraday bias is now on the rise for a resistance level of 121.15 at first. The breakthrough will be aimed at 122.87 high levels. On the other hand, a breakdown of the secondary support levels of 119.99 could change the bias towards lower testing to retest the low level of 118.46 instead. Instrument: EURJPY Order: Sell Entry price: 121.00 Stop: 119.66 Target: 121.47 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.
