WHY TRADE BINARY OPTIONS

A guide to understanding these easy to trade and functional options.

What are Binary options?

Binary options are different from traditional options, having different payouts, fees and risks, not to mention an entirely different investment process. Where a traditional option might conclude in a month, Binary options offer expiries within as little as 30 seconds, and unlike traditional options you can invest as much or little as you like to, so barriers-to-trade are reduced.

Traders in general also enjoy Binary options for the fixed risk it offers, plus small movements for bigger payouts, broad range of markets and small cost of entry as well.

Binary options are a very straight-forward way to trade price fluctuations in multiple global markets. Traders simply need to understand two potential outcomes of an option: will it go up or down in value?

Assume your analysis indicates that USD/JPY is going to rally for the rest of the afternoon, although you're not sure by how much. You decide to buy a (High) Call Option on the USD/JPY. Suppose the strike price is currently at 120.50, so by buying a Call Option you're expecting the closing price at expiry will be above 120.50.

HighLow Binary options are available on all sorts of time frames – from seconds to one day – you choose an expiry time that aligns with your analysis. So using the USD/JPY example above, you’ve chosen a Call Option with a strike price of 120.50, and (for the sake of this example) an expiry of 1 hour from now should you enter the trade at the beginning of the option. With HighLow, this option pays you 185% if USD/JPY closes above 120.50 at expiry (1 hour from now); if USD/JPY closes below 120.50 at expiry (1 hour from now), you'll lose your investment.

NB. HighLow offers the best returns in the industry, providing up to 200% with some Option types.
