Basic Strategies

  • Controlled Risk

    Controlled Risk

    The percentage reward is known from the onset, as is what you stand to lose.
  • Simplicity

    Simplicity

    You only need a sense of direction: i.e. ‘Will Google stock price increase/decrease by expiry?’
  • Attraktivität

    Attractiveness

    Für einen profitablen Handel muss nur der Preis „im Geld“ schließen. Der Gewinntrade wird die vollständige Auszahlung erhalten, selbst wenn der Trade nur um einen einzigen Pip „richtig“ war.
  • Hedging opportunities

    Hedging opportunities

    Hedging is a safer option to take if a trader has an open position elsewhere in currency, stocks etc. Utilizing a binary option can eliminate a further loss elsewhere.
  • Punctuality

    Punctuality

    Binary contracts are being issued around the clock, allowing traders to trade on multiple time frames. There is always an expiration time arriving, which constantly yields new opportunities for binary traders.
  • Returns

    Returns

    Clients generate up to 88% return on trades, some of which comes from 60 second options.
  • THE BEAR SPREAD

    The Bear Spread

    bear-put-spreadAn option strategy seeking maximum profit when the price of the underlying security declines. The strategy involves the simultaneous purchase and sale of options; puts or calls can be used. A higher strike price is purchased and a lower strike price is sold. The options should have the same expiration date. This Trading strategy is used by futures traders who intend to profit from the decline in commodity prices while limiting potentially damaging losses. You make money if the underlying goes down and lose if the underlying rises in price. A bear spread is created through the simultaneous purchase and sale of two of the same or closely related futures contracts. This is accomplished in the agricultural commodity markets by selling a future and offsetting it by purchasing a similar contract with an extended delivery date.
  • THE BULL SPREAD

    The Bull Spread

    bull-call-spreadAn option strategy in which maximum profit is attained if the underlying security rises in price. Either calls or puts can be used. The lower strike price is purchased and the higher strike price is sold. The options have the same expiration date. You make a lot of money if the stock rises. You lose it all if it doesn’t. It’s one of those higher risk maneuvers that can cause a lot of anxiety.
  • THE REVERSAL

    The Reversal

    reversalA change in the direction of a price trend. On a price chart, reversals undergo a recognizable change in the price structure. An uptrend, which is a series of higher highs and higher lows, reverses into a downtrend by changing to a series of lower highs and lower lows. A downtrend, which is a series of lower highs and lower lows, reverses into an uptrend by changing to a series of higher highs and higher lows.

    Also referred to as a “trend reversal”, “rally” or “correction”.

    A reversal can be a positive or negative change against the prevailing trend. Technical analysts watch for these patterns because they can indicate the need for a different trading strategy on the same security. For example, if a technical analyst holds stock ABC and notices a reversal pattern, he or she may want to consider closing his or her existing long position and assuming a short position to capitalize on the potential downward movement of the stock’s price.

  • THE STRADDLE

    The Straddle

    dp-straddleAn options strategy with which the investor holds a position in both a call and put with the same strike price and expiration date. Straddles are a good strategy to pursue if an investor believes that a stock’s price will move significantly, but are unsure as to which direction. The stock price must move significantly if the investor is to make a profit. As shown in the diagram above, should only a small movement in price occur in either direction, the investor will experience a loss.
  • THE BUTTERFLY

    The Butterfly

    long-butterflyA neutral option strategy combining bull and bear spreads. Butterfly spreads use four option contracts with the same expiration but three different strike prices to create a range of prices the strategy can profit from. The trader sells two option contracts at the middle strike price and buys one option contract at a lower strike price and one option contract at a higher strike price. Both puts and calls can be used for a butterfly spread. Butterfly spreads have limited risk, meaning you can only lose your initial investment. Your maximum return is when the price of the underlying asset remains around the middle strike price.
  • Domino Effect

    Domino Effect

    The domino or Knock effect in the opinion of top market Analysts’ is that this is the most logical of all strategies. The idea is that the price of a given asset may have an impact on the price of the indices in which it is traded, or a related asset such as a commodity or stock inside the same session. The crucial point here is to firmly comprehend the relationship between them and be able to predict such movements based on this principle.

  • Chinese shares hit one-month high

    chineseOKYO (Reuters) – Most Asian shares rose on Monday and Chinese stocks surged to a one-month high as investors took heart from last week’s upbeat data from the world’s second-biggest economy, but Japan’s Nikkei fell to a six-week low after softer second-quarter GDP.

    European shares were expected to open firmer, with Britain’s FTSE 100 (.FTSE) seen up as much as 0.3 percent and Germany’s DAX (.GDAXI) up as much as 0.1 percent, according to financial spreadbetters. U.S. stock futures were flat.

    China’s CSI300 <.csi300> climbed 2.1 percent, extending last Friday’s rise after factory output grew in July at its fastest pace since the start of the year.

    Data released after the market close on Friday was equally positive, showing Chinese new bank loans and money supply for July came in higher than expected despite a fall in a broad measure of liquidity.

    “Apart from the government announcement supporting the environmental protection sector, the latest batch of economic data is lifting some pressure on traditional cyclical sectors,” said a Shanghai-based dealer with a major Chinese brokerage.

    Worries about slowing growth in China and uncertainty on when the U.S. Federal Reserve would start to trim back its massive stimulus have roiled markets in recent months. Last week’s Chinese data raised hopes that growth in Asia’s economic powerhouse may be stabilizing.

    The strong gains in Chinese stocks buoyed Asian shares, with the MSCI Asia-Pacific ex-Japan index <.miapj0000pus> index up 1 percent to a two-week high.

    JAPAN’S GROWTH SLOWS

    Japan’ Nikkei share average (.N225) shed 0.7 percent to its lowest since June 28 after data showed its economy grew at a slower-than-expected pace in April-June, triggering investors to cut their risk exposure.

    But the yen reversed early gains to trade down 0.2 percent at 96.510 yen to the dollar. Earlier, it had strengthened as much as 0.4 percent to 95.92 yen to the dollar, not far from a seven-week peak of 95.810 yen touched last week, and hit a six-week high at 127.97 yen to the euro.

    Japan, the world’s third-largest economy, grew an annualized 2.6 percent in the second quarter, a third straight quarter of expansion but slower than a downwardly revised 3.8 percent rate in the first quarter.

    The median forecast was for annualized growth of 3.6 percent, and so the data may heighten calls to delay a planned sales tax increase given concerns it could prolong Japan’s escape from deflation.

    Yields on benchmark 10-year Japanese government bonds, which move opposite to prices, edged down 0.5 basis point to a three-month low of 0.745 percent.

    The yen has fallen 11 percent against the dollar this year as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pushed for fiscal and monetary expansionary policies to revive the economy, while the Nikkei is up 30 percent during the same period.

    The dollar (.DXY) added 0.1 percent against a basket of major currencies on Monday.

    STRONG SINGAPORE’S GROWTH

    Singapore’s economy grew at a better-than-expected pace in the second quarter and the government raised the city state’s outlook for the year on expectations for a gradual pick up in global growth in coming months.

    Singapore’s stocks (.FTSTI) were up 0.2 percent, underperforming the regional market, however.

    U.S. stocks fell on Friday, posting their biggest weekly decline since June as investors focused on when the Fed would begin pull back its stimulus.

    In commodities markets, copper prices slipped 0.3 percent to around $7,250 a ton after climbing 1.3 percent to a two-month high on Friday on the back of the upbeat Chinese factory data.

    They rose 3.9 percent last week to log their best weekly gain in almost a year.

    Gold rose 1.3 percent, extending a 0.3 percent rise in the previous session and heading for a fourth straight day of winning streak.

    Brent crude prices dipped 0.1 percent but held above $108 a barrel after they advanced 1.4 percent on Friday to snap a five-day run of loss – the longest since April.
