Trading in the binary options market is one of the ways you can trade and investment different assets. Binary options provide traders and investors a variety of benefits that can help them earn a hefty return.
How do binary options work?
Binary options provide traders with a fixed return when a payout occurs, but it can also yield nothing once the trading day comes to a close. There are two distinct types of binary options, the asset or nothing option or the cash or nothing option. The asset or nothing binary option yields a return that is equivalent to the value of the security or asset purchased, while a cash or nothing binary option yields a fixed amount of money once the option or asset purchased expires. Trading in the binary options market will lead to only two possible results, a payout (in cash or assets) or nothing. A binary option is also known as digital option, fixed return option, or all or nothing option.
Trading in binary options is quite simple. The potential return that a binary option yields is already determined before the trading begins or before a purchase is done. Binary options can be purchased in either direction of a trade by purchasing a put/down or call/up option. Binary options have a definite expiry time that can be as short as 60 seconds or at the end of a trading day. In a binary option trade market, if a trader thinks that the market will rise, the trader can make a ‘call’.
On the other hand, if the trader thinks that the market will sink, the trader can purchase a ‘put’. Traders in the binary options market rely on the proper prognosis of the market. If a trader makes the proper prognosis he or she will get a fixed return, and if the prognosis is incorrect, he or she will also lose a fixed amount or everything. For example, if you invest $90 on Microsoft stocks’ growth, if the stock gains one point, you will be guaranteed a payout of more than 85%. On the other hand, you will also lose more than 85% of your investment if the stock you purchased loses a point or more.
