Since traders are purchasing a contract for a set price, they know exactly how much they will gain or lose should the asset finish in-the-money or out-of-the-money. This built-in risk management gives binary option traders a peace of mind that other more traditional traders do not enjoy, and insures that binary option traders always know how much they can win and how much they can lose at all times.Binary options are relatively unfettered by regulation, making them an easy-to-access, highly-dynamic form of options trading. You can buy a binary option at any time of day or night, seven days a week. You can also purchase them from your own home, so long as you have an internet connection, and can use any number of services to get through them. And because of the low level of regulation, a much larger field of assets are offered through binary options than through traditional options trading. In the future this field is likely to expand even further, so that you can purchase contracts on assets far outside of the traditional trading realm.For many, investing can be an extremely stressful undertaking. The thought of exhausting income for a long-term payout is too difficult to manage. Traditional options can take years to mature while binary options are relatively short-term with extreme flexibility. Trading binary options allow the investor to experience a sense of control. At IvoryOption, the investor has the option to make at trade with expiry rates ranging from fifteen minutes to one month. This litheness permits the investor to yield acute earnings in a matter of minutes.Binary options provide an unequivocal advantage against volatile markets. Because binary options provide fixed rates of return and because trades are not actually capitalized in the underlying asset, volatile markets only provide opportunity rather than detriment.Unlike traditional options and the profit dependence of the difference between strike price and sell price, binary options do not require any more than one pip to be in the money. With all of these advantages, its no wonder that binary trading is such a rapidly expanding type of options trading. From the newcomer to the well-seasoned investor, binary option trading offers something for everyone high profits with minimal risk in a short period of time. To explain it simply the asset simply has to move in the direction you selected.This is the first component to any trade choosing an asset. At IvoryOption, over 100 underlying assets are available to clients. The assets are drawn from stocks, indices, foreign exchange, and commodities. Many traders focus on one asset or one sector or a compilation of many sectors. IvoryOption gives the client flexibility and control with its vast array of options.Once an underlying asset is chosen, the contract for the option must be executed. At IvoryOption, once again, flexibility is offered to its clientele. Contracts are offered with expiry rates ranging from fifteen minutes to thirty minutes to one hour to end of day to one week and to even one month. You, the client, can purchase a contract up to five minutes before expiration, allowing you to grab a hold of any trend.Finally, the prediction of the underlying asset is made. Depending on market data and other information used in guiding your prediction, a call option or a put option is determined. If you think an underlying asset will rise above the strike price, or the price of the asset at which the contract is executed, then a call option is placed. If you think the asset will fall below the strike price, a put option is placed. If the prediction is correct, your earnings will range from 75 to 81, which is approximately double the initial investment.Copyright 2015, IvoryOption, United Kingdom.Risk disclosure: When trading binary options, investors must take into consideration that when placing trades on options there is the risk that partial or full funds may be lost.
