- What is a binary option?
Binary options are also known as fixed return and digital options. They can be used to trade underlying assets and Binary Option Brokers payout pre-determined profits and losses which are known to the investor even before their options are executed.
In particular, when any of your binary options finishes in-the-money then, as an OptionRally registered member, you will be paid a profit as high as 78% of your original deposit. In addition, successful results are solely dependent on price direction and not the size of magnitude of its movement. This means that if the value of your binary option finishes just one price increment in the correct direction at the expiry time, then you will gain a profit.
In contrast, if any of your binary options terminates out-of-the-money, then OptionRally will pay you a refund which can be between 10% and 15% of your original deposit. Another benefit about trading with binary options is that you will always know your potential profits and losses for every investment you make even before your option is executed. In essence, you also have an inherent risk and money management strategy at your disposal when you trading using binary options.
- What is an underlying asset?
These are the securities upon which binary options are constructed. Underlying assets can be stocks, commodities, Forex currency pairs and trading indexes.
- What is the maximum investment amount?
The maximum amount that can be invested into a single binary option is $5000 or the currency equivalent. However, there is no limit to the number of binary options that you can exercise at any given time.
- What is an expiry time?
This is the time at which the lifetime of a binary option elapses. This is an important event because it is used to determine whether you finish in-the-money if your option successfully achieved its objective or not-in-the-money if it did not.
- Binary Options vs Traditional options
OptionRally offers binary options as defined above which are different from the traditional ones presented by the Stock Exchanges. For example, traditional options usually possess longer expiry times, larger fluctuating yields and can be sold before their expiry times.
In contrast, binary options have pre-determined yield and expiry times ranging from one hour to one month. In addition, they normally cannot be sold before the selected expiry time elapses. OptionRally is planning to introduce binary options which will allow their investors to sell them before their expiry times elapses.
