Remember though, that buying the option means that you dont have to go
through with the purchase of the property, but even if you dont buy it, you
end up losing the $3,000 that you paid for the option.

This story is a perfect example of what an option truly is. When you buy
an option of an asset (which is just a fancy name that includes stocks,
commodities, currencies and indexes) you are not buying the asset itself
(or the home itself, in our example), but you are locking in a price for the
option of whether or not to buy the asset at a later time.

Now all we have to define is the word Binary. This is the easy part. All
Binary means is two-directional, meaning, you can either win or lose,

Binary Advantages
Make Money in Any Market Condition and Direction
You can make money if an asset goes up, down, or sideways. And with
some strategies, you can even be wrong on an asset's direction and still
make money.

Of course, this does not mean you can just close your eyes and make a
random choice. But it does mean that, if you understand the market, you
can make money in virtually any market condition - even when you're
unsure of how the market will perform.

You can get started in Binary Options with only a fraction of the money you
would normally have to invest to own an actual asset. And Binary Options
strategies come with a guaranteed limited risk.

While buying assets usually involves a more risky investment amount,

buying Binary Options requires much smaller amounts, often a fraction of
asset prices, and there are so many different ways for you to make money.

Fast Results
With Binary Options you are able to see the results of your investment in
as little as 60 seconds. They are a fast and simple way to make returns on

Variety of Options
There are so many different assets that you can choose from. You can
select from a number of Currencies, Commodities, Indexes and Stocks so
you are able to make a variety of selections.

If you invested correctly, you are able to profit from yields that are often
around 75% or more of the buy-in amount, and you will see the returns
almost instantly.

go next. You will learn when to take a call position and when to take a put
position on an asset. Traders buy a call position when they expect the
price of an asset to go up and a put position when they expect the price to
go down.

Got it? Call - up, put - down.

The next terms you need to know are strike price and expiry. Strike price
is the exact price that the asset is at the moment that you take the call
position. Expiry is the time at which your position will end and the success
of your trade will be determined. If, for example, you buy a call position that
gold will increase above its current price by one hour from now, the current
price of gold would be the strike price and one hour from now will be the

Now lets say that the hour expiry time for your gold call position is almost

This means you are out of the money. If the price is indeed above your
strike price but it is before the expiry time, you are in the money. Here is what you see in the Platform:

because they believe that the asset will appreciate from this point. The
more low points that comprise a support level, the stronger the support. If
the asset breaks the support level, a downtrend is expected to occur.

Resistance: This is the level at which an asset has historically shown not
to rise above. When an asset reaches its resistance level, investors will
generally sell the asset because they believe it has reached its maximum
price for now and will start to depreciate. The more high points that
comprise a resistance level, the stronger the resistance. If the asset breaks
the resistance level, an uptrend is expected to occur.

how volatile a market is going to be. If the bands are far apart, meaning
increased volatility, this may signal decreased future volatility, but if the
bands are closer together, meaning decreased volatility, this may signal
upcoming increased volatility.

Sometimes an asset is headed in an overall positive direction but there
are a few minor dips along the ascent. These descents are known as
retracements. A downward dip does not always mean that an asset will
be headed downward for an extended period of time, but it just might be a
slight dip for the short-term.

The Fundamentals
Fundamental Analysis means to take a deeper look at how an asset
or industry is performing as a whole. It is looking at an overall financial
state of an economy and focusing on factors such as important
economic date that are released almost daily. Here are some of the data
categories that we like to focus on when performing a fundamental

Taking Advantage of Global Market Cycles

The global economy and market always runs in cycles. bitplutos will help
you to understand at which point the economy is in the cycle and this will
help you make successful trades. The advantage of trading with Binary
Options is that you receive the flexibility of entering and exiting the
market almost immediately. It is as if you see a carousel with a shiny
diamond that is on one of the horses and at just the right moment you
reach out and grab the diamond and immediately exit the carousel. It is
the same with understanding the cycles of the economy. Understand

It is a basic level at which investors generally like to buy an asset because
they believe that the asset will appreciate from this point. It is not a proven
fact, but the support level can help in decision making.

On the opposite side, resistance is the level at which an asset has
historically shown not to rise above. When an asset reaches its resistance
level, investors will generally sell the asset because they believe it has
reached its maximum price for now and will start to depreciate.
Fibonacci Numbers
One popular method that is used to determine support and resistance
levels is Fibonacci numbers. They are calculations based on the premise
that markets will retrace part of its previous movement, after which it
will continue towards its original direction. These calculations help to
determine where an asset might find its support or resistance.

Moving Averages
Asset prices are in a constant state of movement and this can sometimes
make data analysis confusing. Looking at moving averages can help
because they make an average from previous data in order to get a clearer
picture of how an asset is performing. Depending on how many days of
data your moving average is using, you will be able to make a clean chart
in order to assess an asset. If, for example, you are using a 10-day moving
average, each point on the graph is the average of an assets performance
for the previous 10 days.

Bollinger Bands
Utilizing the moving average, Bollinger bands are lines that are two (exclude
outliers) away from the moving average. This makes them a measure of
volatility or movement. Investors often look at the width of Bollinger bands
to predict how volatile a market is going to be. If the bands are far apart,
meaning increased volatility, this may signal decreased future volatility,
but if the bands are close together, meaning decreased volatility, this may
signal upcoming increased volatility.

This gives people less ability to pay off debt to the bank. When people hear
there are others having difficulty repaying their bank, they rush to remove
their money from the bank. The banks get pinched and everyone defaults
on their debt.

This causes a depression. People restructure their debt and agree to pay
back less money.

This is also difficult for the Central Government, because they collect less
taxes while having to spend more for unemployment and also increase
spending to pump more money into businesses.

The Government can collect more money by taxing the wealthy. In order to
give more people money, they Central Bank can finally print more money to
buy financial assets and government bonds, and the Government can buy
goods and services.

The Central Bank needs to make sure it doesnt print too much money

This also became a problem for most EU countries except for Germany,
and that is exactly where the rest of the EU looked to for help.

Germany agreed to help, as long as the debtor countries would accept to

change their laws, known as austerity, and would agree to less benefits and
a higher retirement age for citizens. Most countries were okay with this,
except for Greece. To make matters more difficult, an extremely left wing
government was voted into office which still say that they will not accept
austerity measures. And even if Greece would accept these measures for
the short term, there would be no laws in place to ensure that this problem
would not happen again.

Which brings us to today. In order to receive help from the EU, Greece and
the rest of EU countries must accept fiscal responsibilities, and put a set
of rules in place that will ensure the situation they are currently in, will not
happen again.
