Binary options trading are financial transactions in which the trader speculates on rising and/or falling of values. “A binary option is a fixed payout in which you predict the outcome from two possible results. If your prediction is correct, you receive the agreed payout. If not, you lose your initial stake, and nothing more. It’s called ‘binary’ because there can be only two outcomes – win or lose.” However, even though this form of trading can make you a millionaire overnight, you can lose a lot of money in seconds. The difference between being successful and losing your money lies in the strategies that you use.

     If you’re planning to venture into binary options trading, this article provides you with the top 5 binary options tips that you should know before you start trading.

Acquire knowledge on prediction and price movement

Before trading binary options, the most important thing is to acquire as much knowledge there is; especially how to predict and dynamism of price movement. If you predict correctly upon expiry of your option, then you will be paid the amount that was previously determined. On the other hand, if your prediction is incorrect, then you get to lose the money. If you are a newbie, then you need to know that there is no single point to assume that you have actually mastered all the tricks used in binary options trading.

If you want to pursue binary options professionally, you need to know that learning binary options is a lifelong process. Learning the tricks requires dedication. You also need to update your strategies from time to time because the binary options market keeps evolving.

Also, you can acquire knowledge by always checking the economic calendar on what news/earnings are scheduled to be released. It is advisable to trade only after the data is released and the potential effects have occurred. It takes lots of knowledge and experience to predict what the market will do before it does it. Try to recognize market trends and ranging conditions and select strategy appropriate to each of them.

Start small

It is advisable to start small i.e do not trade with huge amounts of money at first. Start small then grow big. There are unavoided mistakes and losses to be encountered before you master the art of trading. And that’s why it is more profitable to start trading with small money. As you get better in your prediction, increase your capital gradually, till you can confidently invest huge amounts, which would mean, huge gains.

Have a strategic plan

Based on the experiences of expert traders, it’s a common knowledge that you won’t go far if you don’t have a solid trading strategy. Creating a plan can be difficult but it is important to develop a trading strategy. This can be done with the help of professionals, successful traders, consistent trading, and reading. If you realize that your current strategies are not working, don’t shy away from making necessary changes to the plan.

Do not over trade

Trade only according to the strategic plan already outlined. Only follow your rules and never place aggressive trades based on emotion. It can be very tempting and frustrating to trade more in order to make up for lost monies. Hey! take a break, step back, clear your mind. Then start trading again if you experience a series of 3 or 4 consecutive losses.

Don’t stick to binary trading as the only source of income

As a novice, don’t quit your job when you decide to become a part time or full time trader. You’ll need lots of experience and capital to rely solely on trading . Also, this takes time. It is always best to have a second source of income. Besides, making trading your main business will put undue pressure on you especially when things aren’t going as planned. And you have so much needs to attend to. This will make you stressed, afraid and fatigued.
