What Is Binary Options Trading?


A Binary Option is a way of investing on an asset price that has only two closing positions. A good investment can be made if the closing position is forecast accurately.

The most common option is the “High” or “Low” option. To get started an agreement of the time duration is fixed before making the prediction. The asset price will either have finished higher than or lower than the price set when trading began. The trader can expect a fixed return if, at the end, his price lies on the right side of his starting price. If predicted incorrectly the trader will lose the sum that he invested when the trade was opened.

The Appeal of Binary Options

With a detailed investigation into buying and selling stocks the ease at which one can place trades using Binary Options becomes apparent.

An investor commences trading by selecting and purchasing an amount of stock or an asset. By calculating the share price individually we can ascertain what the price of the asset is.

A trader can generate a good return by selling his asset when the price has risen from the price of the asset at the outset. Likewise, the investor will experience a loss if the asset’s selling price is less than the price it was purchased for.

Comprehensive knowledge and experience of multiple eventualities is essential to invest this way. A thorough understanding of how the financial markets function is of the utmost importance. The investor would need to have studied what the asset’s price movements have been in the past, how the asset is influenced by price-changing events in the market, and, how the asset’s price will change looking ahead.

As yet, there is no economic system in place that can prevent a Stock Market crash from occurring and we are constantly updated in the media about how events can impact upon the market. To successfully bring all of these elements together the investor who regularly generates profitable returns knows and understands asset price changes and is backed up by trading methods and techniques that can be implemented when the situation demands it.

Having no strategy or a lack of understanding of assets and the market may leave you in your own private depression. What you have set aside for investing will soon evaporate, you won’t have sufficient funds to buy presents for the kids at Christmas and your partner may run off with someone more adept at investing their money than yourself!

What is appealing in comparison, is that there is no need to buy into anything when investing with Binary Options. I outlined previously in this article that binary investments feature prices of assets and if the price of an asset will rise or fall. In this case you are trading solely on an up or down movement in the price of an asset. For this reason it is a considerably less risky investment opportunity.

In addition, it is worthy of note that Binary Options Trading helps potential investors get up and running without putting down large sums to begin, because the required investment amount can be much smaller.

Imagine, if you will, that if an investor was looking to commence trading on Gold, which based on the current value of Gold would make it very difficult for most people to make it a worthwhile asset to invest in. In Binary Options Trading no one is really buying any Gold, but instead traders are investing in price changes of Gold over a set time period.

Assets Available to Trade with Binary Options

Now we have started speaking about commodities. In the paragraph before we spoke a little about Gold. Now would be a good time to delve into the types of assets most often used for Binary Option Trading.

 Indices – An index is the market itself. Together with the NASDAQ, there is the Dow Jones in Tokyo and the FTSE in London. You may be surprised to learn that it is possible to invest on the markets themselves.

– Forex – Or Foreign in Exchange is concerned with exchange rates between major currency pairs, such as the USD, the GBP or the JP. You can trade on combinations of all these major currencies

– Commodities – A raw material or primary agricultural product that can be bought or sold, such as Gold, Copper or Coffee.

– Stocks – These are shares in a particular business or institution and could range from a Hi Tech company such as Hewlett Packard or IBM to a football team like Manchester United or a brand of shoes, such as Jimmy Choo.

Selecting which asset to trade on is the beginning point for a trader. As I said previously the beauty of Binary Options Trading is how easy it is to get up and running. However it will, nonetheless, be beneficial to research your chosen asset somewhat to look for signals as to how it will be influenced by certain circumstances that can occur in the market. For example, if you have been following the rise of the mobile app Get Taxi, then it may be of interest to you to make predictions on the value Get Taxishares. It can be said, in conclusion, that increased knowledge of asset price values will up the likelihood of making successful trades.
