Binary options trading strategy - FXStreet

What are good strategies for trading binary options?

The best strategy, in fact the only way you have a chance with binaries, is to do the OPPOSITE of what they tell you to do, the opposite of what nearly everyone does.
Makes sense since binary option traders suck worse as a group than any other traders. They could lose money as an olympic sport. The binary options business is so lucrative that brokers will pay you a 35% commission on deposits for introducing a customer, and still make a lot of profit. In other words, its a scam. Unlike other forms of trading where the broker doesn’t make money if you lose, with binaries your broker makes, instead of a nominal commission, in most cases keeps your whole account.
Now assuming you have a broker that actually pays out if you win (there aren’t many, honestly, > 80% of brokers are just ripping you off and never paying out).
Here’s how to do it.
  1. Everyone wants to have the 10 bagger win, buy the out of the money option for $15 and have it close at $100. DO THE OPPOSITE. Buy the option which is IN THE MONEY, about to close true. Experiment with the time to close, for 2 hour binary options about 30 mins is good.
  2. Do a check of the upcoming announcements at Economic Calendar | FXStreet Don’t trade anything with an announcement before your binary closes.
  3. Try and buy options you think will close true 90% of the time, for $75-$80. No more than $80 - this is your edge.
  4. If your option becomes OUT OF THE MONEY, trades below the strike price, it becomes a coin flip and exit immediately. (note that binary options brokers don’t let you use stop losses since they want you to lose a lot not a little)
  5. Keep accurate records and stop trading and start paper trading if your win rate drops below 80% for 5 consecutive trading days.
This is a strategy with a very small edge. If you take 10 trades a day you should make money most days, with big drawdowns. It is not suitable for big accounts, and not suitable for compounding into a big account. The only possible use is small and consistent income.
On the whole I do NOT recommend the binary options business. It is riddled with scammers, and has terrible hurdles to overcome. If you must play, however, this is the way.
To win at binary options try using professional trading signals. This might give you the necessary edge to win. More info here https://winatbinaryoptions.com/signals/

Brokerages:
There are many factors to consider when choosing a brokerage. Regulations typically force US traders to only trade at US brokerages, while international traders have more choice. After considering location you need to consider how much capital you will start trading with as many have minimum deposit levels. Once you’ve narrowed that down you can compared spreads and execution. ECN brokers execute your orders straight through to their liquidity providers, while market maker brokers may pair up your trades with other clients. Market maker brokers typically will partially hedge your positions on the interbank market. Many consider this to be a conflict of interest and prefer to trade at an ECN broker who would have an active motive to see you succeed. Lastly, brokers run inherently risky business models so it is important to consider the risk of bankruptcy.

FAQ:
I need to exchange money, how do I do it?
This isn’t what this sub is for. Your best bet is using your bank or an online exchange service. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee.
I have money in one currency and need to exchange it into another sometime in the future, should I wait?
Don’t ask us this. We speculate intraday in FX and shouldn’t be relied on to tell you what’s best for you. Exchange the money when you need it.
I have an FX account, should I start trading demo or live?
This is highly debatable. You should definitely demo trade until you have mastered how to use the trading platform on desktop and mobile. After that it’s up to you. Many think that the psychology of trading live vs demo trading is massively different. So it may pay to learn to trade live. Just be warned that most FX traders lose almost their entire first account so start with a low affordable balance.
What’s money management?
Money management is a form of risk management and is arguably the most important aspect of your trading when it comes to long term survival. You should always enter trades with a stop loss - the distance of the stop allows you to calculate how large of a percent of your account balance will be lost if your trade stops out. You can run a monte carlo simulation to figure out the risk of having a number of trades go against you in a row to drain your account. The general rule is that you should only risk losing 1-4% of your account per trade entered.

www.swing-trade-stocks.com/money-management.html[36]
What about automated trading?
Retail FX traders have been known to program “Expert Advisors” (EAs) to automate trading. It’s generally advisable to stay away from that until you’re very experienced. Never buy an EA from a developer because the vast majority of them are scams.
What indicators are best?
That’s up to you to test and find out. Many in this forum dislike oscillating indicators since they fail to capture the essence of what moves price. With experience you will discover what works best for you. In my experience indicators that are most popular with professional traders are those that provide trading “levels” such as pivot points, fibonacci, moving averages, trendlines, etc.
What timeframe should I trade?
Price action can vary in different timeframes. In longer term timeframes the price action and fundamentals are much more clear. Unfortunately it would take a very long time to figure out whether or not what you’re doing is successful on longer timeframes. In shorter timeframes you can often tell very quickly if what you’re doing is profitable. Unfortunately there’s a lot more “noise” on these levels which can prove deceptive for those trying to learn. Therefore the best bet is to use a multi-timeframe analysis, working from top-down to come up with trades.
Should I trade using fundamental analysis (FA) of technical analysis (TA)?
This is a long standing argument in these forums and elsewhere. I’ll settle it here - you should have an understanding of both. Yes there are traders who blindly ignore one of the other but a truly well rounded trader should understand and implement both into the analysis. The market is driven in the longer term through FA. But TA is necessary to give traders a place to enter and exit trades from a psychological risk/reward standpoint.
I’ve heard trading Binary Options is an easy way to make money?
The general advice is to stay away from binaries. The structure of binary options is so that when you lose the broker wins. This incentive has created a very scammy industry where there are few legitimate binary options brokers. In addition in order to be profitable in binaries you have to win 55-65% of the time. That’s a much higher premium over spot FX.
Am I actually exchanging currencies?
Yes and no. Your broker handles spot FX is currency pairs. Although they make an exchange at the settlement date they treat your position in your account as a virtual currency pair. Think of it like a contract where you can only buy or sell it as a pair. In this sense you are always long one currency while short another. You are merely speculating that one currency will appreciate or depreciate vs another.
Why didn't my order fill?
Even if price appears to cross over a line on your chart it does not guarantee a fill. Different charting platforms chart different prices - some chart the bid price, some the ask price and some the midpoint price. To fill a limit order price needs to cross your limit's price plus the spread at the time that it is crossing. If it does not equal or exceed the spread then it will not fill. Be wary that in general spreads are not fixed. So what may fill at one time may not at another.
