3.   Financial betting

Strategy has nothing to do with technical or fundamental analysis and it involves a mathematical calculation, what is the probability that a bet on the growth would have been profitable under certain conditions.

  • “Pinocchio.” Reversal model of technical analysis based on the fact that high peak means a drop in the short term, and Vice versa. If you see an unreasonable quick surge in trend (rising prices), then buy a 5 minute call option on the price drop;


  • “Triangle”. Figure of technical analysis, which determines the level of price resistance. As soon as this level breaks, it makes sense to buy an option to increase;


  • “Against the trend”. The strategy is based on the fact that the trend may not be permanent. And if now it is going to rise up, it will also go down in waves. Analysis of past fluctuations allows to determine the amplitude and frequency of vibrations and open trend opposite to the price of the option, knowing where the quotes will be via a fixed time. Apply on calm markets when there is no effect of news factor.

There are only few dozens of short-term binary options strategies. The difference between them is that they are applicable for certain types of assets with different levels of liquidity for the individual markets. Often a trader develops his personal strategy that is convenient to him personally
