BO101 Lesson – Introduction to Binary Options Transcript

Welcome to binary options 100 training course. This is binary options 101; an introduction to binary options. My name is Sam in this course is brought to you by binary options education.

What are binary options?

Binary options are type of option in which the payoff is a fixed amount of cash or nothing at all.

So unlike other financial derivatives or securities where payoff is determined by the difference of opening and closing price.

When we profit from a binary option, a profit is a pre-agreed amount between individual and the broker or it’s a loss.

Sometimes binary options are referred to as all-or-nothing options or digital options.

How are binary options traded? Binary options are traded through an online binary options broker and in the next video I’ll give some details of popular binary option brokers available online.

Binary options brokers offer a variety of binary options such as Forex or the foreign exchange markets. These are binary options of underlying assets which are currencies such as the pound against the dollar, the Australian dollar against the US dollar and % US dollar against the Japanese Yen.

You can also trade binary options in stock or shares such as BMW, Barclays, Accenture.

Indices which are stock indexes or baskets of stocks like the Dow Jones all the DAX and also commodities which are precious metals and salts such as Gold, Oil, Wheat.

If you notice I’ve made the Forex or currencies the detailed in bold; the reason for this there’s a lot more hype with forex binary options than these other binary options offered by brokers and these generally are the most popular binary options be traded.

So what does the word binary mean? on the definition of binary is related to composed of or involving two things these two things being call options and put options if we believe a binary option or the underline assets is going to appreciate or increase in price we would place call option and if we believe that particular binary option or underline asset was going to decrease or depreciate in price we would take a put option.

Now binary options are offered against the fixed expiry time such as sixty seconds plus meaning if you thought the Australian dollar against the US dollar was going to increase in price in the next 60 seconds we would place a call option an after 60 seconds if price is higher than the start of the 60 seconds we would profit a pre-agreed amount with our broker.

Well if we though gold was going to depreciate in price and the next 15 minutes we would place a put option and after 15 minutes has expired if gold has declined in price from the start of that 15 minutes to the end once again me with profit a pre-agreed amount to our broker.

So when to trade binary options? because so many binary options are offered by such a wide range global markets different binary options can be traded at different times in the day as different financial markets have different trading hours.

Forex market hours:

  • Sydney: 8:00am to 4:00pm AEST
  • Tokyo: 10:00am to 6:00pm AEST
  • London: 7:00pm to 3:00am AEST

Whereas stocks on the New York Stock Exchange clearly be traded 9:30 24 Monday to Friday local time and another example would be the Tokyo Stock Exchange traded 9 to 3 local time.

So who can can trade binary options well the answer is pretty much anyone you do have to be 18 or over and there are a few things that you need in order to trade binary options such as computer with an Internet connection available time to commit to learning and trading binary options.
