How to trade binary options

Before starting to describe the rocess of binary options trading, let’s define, at first, a term “binary options”. It is a kind of financial contract having fixed profit and giving an opportunity to profit thanks to price movement of basic assets.

Main peculiarity of the instrument is concluded in the fact that trader knows how much he can lose or earn with any option before transaction conclusion.


Traders buy contract, but not an asset itself, that let more number of traders who otherwise would not be able to overcome high prices obstacle get profit from predicted price movement. For example, instead of purchasing of twenty 1000 dollars' stocks, alternatively a person can spend twenty dollars on two binary call- options purchasing.


This index can multiply exceed earning power of comparable fundsallocation in direct assets purchasing because profitability does not depend on final price difference, and is more likely connected with price movement changes towards the asset.


Since the amount of binary options payments mainly depends on asset price change direction and has little connection with price difference, that’s why it is not necessary to have much detailed information about the asset to get profit. It makes the process accessible for less experienced traders.

What means trading with this instrument? To trade with this instrument is to have an ability to predict the asset price's changes. A person usually make suggestion about probability of the price in(de)crease in comparison with the opening price. If the opening price is lower than the closing price, a buy position will provide him profit. If the opening price is higher than the closing price, a sell position will grant him profit. Otherwise, his transaction will bring him a loss.

The time of purchase performance is indicated on the chart by the white dashed line. Until this time, a person has an opportunity to purchase a great deal of same asset options in the direction chosen before.

Next it is necessary to make choice of the direction of price changes. If one think price will skyrocket, it is necessary to choose the green button “Higher”. Otherwise – it is necessary to choose the button “Lower”.
