Binary Options

As the name suggests, there are only two possible outcomes in binary options trading, i.e., all or nothing. You just have to choose an asset to trade in and speculate whether its price will go up or down in the near future. That’s what makes it quite simple.

In binary options, you can open positions is Forex, stocks, commodities or indexes. After choosing the asset (e.g Google Inc. stock or US dollar), you have to look at the performance of this asset in the past few days, weeks or months. You can predict the future performance of your chosen asset by evaluating available information. On the basis of the information, you can make out if the price of this asset will follow an inclining or declining trend in near future.

In binary options trading, you are also free to choose a time period for your position. For instance, you can go for hourly, weekly or monthly options. This way you can generate quick income within a matter of a few minutes. You don’t have to deal with numbers or any complex calculations. For example if you choose up or call option and the asset price goes up by 1% before the expiration time, you are entitled to a certain amount of profit. This scenario is referred to as “in the money”.

If the price of your chosen asset goes down (even by 1%) before expiration time, then you will lose your original investment. This scenario is called “out of the money”. How much you lose or make also depends on your broker. Some brokers offer a 15% refund in case the deal ends in “out of the money” state.

Trading in binary options is as simple as discussed above and you don’t have to download any software or specialized tool for this. You just need to register online with a good broker and participate in this trade through the broker’s interface. Having some knowledge of the latest news, current financial, economic and political situation of countries can give you a good chance in making quick money through binary options. A little homework is always good to increase your odds when trading in binary options.
