Binary options expiration time…

The binary option’s expiration time is the time at which the system determines whether a prediction was correct or not. At this stage the two asset prices (the ‘bid’ price, i.e. the price at the time of a prediction and the expiry price) of the selected stock, commodity or index are compared. The trader then either earns or loses money, depending on whether his prediction regarding the price change was correct.
Binary options expiration times are much shorter than those of other trading instruments. The outcome of your prediction is known within a short period of time, from 30 minutes to several hours.

The trader can extend the expiration by 10, 20 or 30 minutes at a cost of 15.5% from the investment amount for each additional 10 minutes.

What is a limit order?

A limit order, also known as ‘pending order’, is an excellent way for a trader to ‘order’ a trade when the asset’s price reaches the desired level.

If a trader wishes to enter a position but for whatever reason don’t ‘like’ the current market level, simply set the desired level and wait for the system to automatically execute it when the price reaches the desired price.

What makes Binary Options trading less risky than Forex?

When you invest in the Forex market, all your money in the trading investment account may be lost. With binary options, your loss will be limited to a specific trade that you decide to invest in. Also with binary option trading, there is also a possibility of higher returns. Unlike the Forex market, you do not need to rely upon tools to hedge your investment. ‘Stop loss’ conditions and additional leverages are kept at bay. The primary reason for this is that you cannot lose more money than what you initially invest – so no protection is required.
