You Just Need to Start...Making Money Online

One of the biggest problems that I see people struggle with when trying to build income sources from the internet is starting. People may think they need to get the perfect idea or have an entire team of people under them to get things going. The fact of the matter is, when you start it doesn't take perfection to actually make money online. All you have to do is build things for people to see and monetize it.

The reason why this is perfect for individuals to do is because other people around the world want to read genuine and honest material. Everyone in the world is different, has their own experiences, and can develop a unique perspective toward a topic. That is all users and browsers like. It doesn't matter what topic it is because there are enough people around the world that you can build sustainable readers.

Think about what you like to read about online. The more trustworthy an honesty you feel you are being exposed to when researching something or looking up information, the better. That is why the online money making game is so unique to the business world. The main thing it takes is your simple action.

Playing Binary Options Given Uncertainty about Taxes in 2013

You can still use the previous stock and currency pairing analysis from last week to make decisions on, but fresh insight is always helpful to traders no matter if they are doing binary options, regular options, or buying/selling an underlying asset outright. Today is Saturday December 29, 2012. One thing to watch for is the tax loss selling. Many people think that in 2013 the taxes for capital gains could go up and there is about a 0% chance that it goes down so people have been dumping their assets that would result in a capital gain. This could cause drops in the stock market on Monday as it is the last day of the year. After that, the market will be in a limbo period, waiting to see exactly what is going to happen with the capital gains tax and all other tax related matters.

Given the market condition of uncertainty in taxes, stocks and other assets or currency pairs may trade sideways. That is a sign of no direction, which is what is the current state. You can make money on this because it is just another signal telling you what has a good chance of happening. Going up and down is great for making money with binary options. You can play trades on the hour/day knowing that an up and down trend is likely to occur in the next few weeks. Having said that, here is what I have found as technical events that triggered at the close of markets on Friday December 28, 2012.

Stock Chart Patterns for Week Dec. 23rd - 29th

I am switching around how I do these chart pattern and technical analysis posts. Instead of doing them each day or multiple times per week, it would provide more value to traders and investors if I look for the most influential chart patterns and technical events that are in play starting each week. These posts will always be on Sunday so you can get ready for the week. It is based on U.S. eastern standard time and I will be mainly focusing on U.S. markets. However, sometimes you will see information on foreign markets and different currency pairs. Also, each stock, currency pair, and index I analyze will be available to trade binary options based on with ZoneOptions.

With That Said, Here is What To Look for this Week

Technical Event

  • USD/JPY - As of the close on Friday, this currency pair had an intermediate term bullish event happen. It had a double moving average crossover (21 and 50 week). That simply means there could be more upside to come in the intermediate term. For this time frame, support is found at 79.48 and resistance is at 84.36. You can trade binary options with the usd/jpy currency pair using the binary options broker I suggest using. Doing so would allow you to get extreme leverage in price movement and offers profits around 60% to 85%. Use my analysis to see where the pressure is (upward or downward) and make trades using all the information you can and you will make good money every day.

Chart Patterns that are In Play

  • TEF - Bottom Triangle: This chart pattern came into play on Dec 20, 2012 which was last Thursday. That day it closed at 13.46. The target is 19.00 over the next few months. In order for that to happen, the pressure has to be upwards over time. Trade accordingly. The bottom triangle is a sign of a down trend reversal. This specific stock pattern that just happened is over the course of 1 year. From January - August 2012 this stock was in a clear downtrend. Starting in August it traded up to 15.00 and entered a consolidation period of lower highs and higher lows (forming a triangle). The series of lower highs was broken last Thursday causing the chart pattern breakout and that is why I am telling you about this now. It could be reversing into a new up trend.

(Chart from Yahoo Finance)

  • COKE - Flag (bullish): This is a little more short-term because it is based on the past month and a half of trading. The stock had a sharp increase in market value (forming the pole). Then it moved into a sideways period over the past 3 weeks (forming the flag part). This means the market rallied, briefly paused, and now shows signs of another rally in this specific underlying asset. It has already gone up a little since the breakout, which occurred last Thursday. That means it is still in play looking forward.

(Chart from my own creation)

Well, that is what you should be looking at in the next week. Have fun trading and make some money. There will be a new and different analysis next Sunday for that week.

UPDATE: Thursday December 27, 2012

Looks like the USD/YEN technical signal is yielding some good results. The COKE signal has not produced much of a good prediction and the TEF is about flat so far this week.

No Traffic Yet For New Niche Website

I figured it was time for another update. It will help me keep thinking of new things to do in order to build this new income stream and give people some insights on what kind of work I do online in order to start making money at some point down the road. Here is the run down so far. I made a new niche website. This was on December 8, 2012. It is just about a topic and has to do with my daily activities. It is more of a growth thing.

So far it has 12 posts and 2 pages. I keep the home page as whatever the most recent post is and then have an about page and a product page. The product page is very important. Right now there are no affiliate links on the site. As I said in the original post and update #2 post, it will not have a monetizing plan until it has reached 100 pages. This is because I only want 1% of the pages to contain an affiliate link. This will be viewed as insignificant to Google and the blog won't be penalized by stupid updates.

Each post that I write is getting indexed within a few days and Google enjoys crawling around and indexing whatever I write. I expected this. The next step is to gain actual free traffic from search engines. It will take a few more weeks to get going on this, but it is the first step in gaining traction. In order to maximize my free marketing tools, I will try and gain as many Twitter, G+, and Facebook followers as possible. These would be people who just want updates from the blog.

So far there has been no organic search traffic. It will start to trickle in after a few more weeks of posts. Once people see that it is highly niche specific and helpful to anyone who enjoys the particular topic, the visitors will come.

This is one of the hardest moments when you are trying to build a website. It becomes frustrating when new guys just make something and don't see results right away. I have been online for about 4 years now and know it just takes time and continued work. For me, it is easy to keep going because it involves something I am doing in person and all that is required to take that activity and turn it into money is write about how it went. Eventually, it will be a place for highly targeted visitors to enjoy fresh content and my recommendation for one type of product that helps people lift weight better.

The intriguing thing will be to see where my new branded website will be in 8 months. That is normally my benchmark for results. After that, it will be clear if things will work out and have a chance to grow into sustainable monthly income or die out. In half that time, this site will have reached 100 pages if I stay on the current page output.

The Reason Why I Built a New Niche Website

It is pretty much because I messed up on my first niche site and invested so much time into it that in the process I figured out all the things that were done wrong. With the new blog I learned to make a brand name, make that brand name the domain name, and don't build links manually accept when sharing posts through social media sites (only a few and not every post on every social network). Beyond that it is a simple matter of time and effort. I know exactly how to work in order to get results. It is done by writing content that is connected to what you do in real life and making it useful by being very detail oriented in how you write. It can be simple as long as it accurately explains what you want your blog to be about. My new site is very congruent and simple, yet it can help just about anyone in the world who reads it.

The earnings of it will be shown when they come in so you can see how much work it takes to build an online income stream. If you keep up with this blog, you will see similar posts like this one updating how things are going and what I do as far as the amount of posts so far and how long it has taken. I only spent a total of $40 bucks for a year's worth of hosting and the rest is up to me. Anyone who has an extra $40 can do the same thing if they use the same hosting provider that I use. Making money with your blog that you build is very easy once you find something sustainable to write about that is completely unique to your life and comes from your own head. That is the magical key to make money online if I had to name anything at all.

Making Money with Momentum Stock Movements Using Binary Options

Momentum in the stock market is a tricky thing. This is a result of fear and greed. The two basic fundamental factors that drive decision making. When people are afraid of losing their money that they invested, the price of an asset goes down and will probably go down below what it should really be priced at. When people chase gains and buy in the hopes of a stock going higher, this behavior tends to push a stock price much higher than the company it represents is actually worth.

In the ebbs and flows of this, there is money to be made. You have to think in terms of price fluctuation and how to leverage that in your favor no matter what direction the price goes. One tool a lot of guys use is binary options. You can use this derivative type option to get 60% to 80% gains on each trade you do if you correctly predict the price movement. It is easier than actually buying option contracts through the exchange because there is 1 of 2 outcomes that happen. You either hit or miss.

There is only one broker that I trust to do these trades. It is this binary options broker. They have actual offices over in Europe, but offer there trading platform to individuals in just about any country around the world including the United States. With them, you have the ability to participate in high/low, one touch/no touch, and boundary (in/out) options. All you do is pick a stock, index, commodity, or forex pair, the direction you think the underlying asset is going/in a given time frame, and enter how much you want to risk on your direction pick being correct.

The maximum exposure you can do per trade is $2,000 with them. My recommendation is to make 2-3 trades per day at $700 - $1,000 at a time. You can pick however much you want to risk per trade. The minimum is around $50 per trade and there are no fees whatsoever. You are either right and win your profit percentage or are wrong and lose whatever you risked.

Momentum helps you with binary options because you can use technical analysis to see if there is a good chance of a stock to run up or down. You just have to place your binary trade before a movement happens. If it does in fact result in a positive result, you get your profit and move on to the next trade. Professionals do about 8 trades per day.

Technical Stock Market Analysis - AAPL and More

It's a beautiful morning here in the United States. I am going to share with you some technical event triggers that occurred yesterday. This should help you trade binary options because you will have a sense of the market pressure on a daily scope. It doesn't mean you have to think one way or the other about buying call or put options. Just see how the market is feeling. You can always make money on either side if you get into binaries. is how the market looks today.

AAPL: Outside bar and engulfing line (both short-term bullish) - This stock had a nice pop over the past few trading days, bouncing off of 500. Now, you need to decide where it is going. Support is found at 518.13 and resistance is at 537.64 in the short outlook. I would predict it is going to go up and approach 550 unless some crazy global news events hit the entire market.

MSFT: Price crosses above 21-day moving average - Here is another close-term bull move. Support is found at 26.80 and resistance is at 30.63. If you do binary trades on a daily level, keep those numbers in mind and look for breakouts or trading range patterns. Make your decisions after something has happened and not before.

JPM: Double moving average cross above (21 and 50 day) - Let me just say this. It is one of the banks that has been declared too integral to the United States to fail. It only fails of the U.S. government does. Many investors are buying it for that reason so look for positive pressure over the next few weeks. For binary option trading, you would want to buy high/low call options on an hourly or daily level depending on how you prefer to trade.

Update on Brand New Niche Site

Things are going about as good as they can go with the new site. As you may have known, I decided to build a new niche website. The plan is to turn it into an income stream as well as having the existence of it get me into much better health and fitness shape. I did use the web host the I recommend on my own page and they are working great. The type of niche site I made was is in blog form using Wordpress CMS and hosting from that provider SiteGround. It didn't cost me anything extra to setup up Wordpress. I just had to press one button.

One of the biggest reasons why I wanted to use the proprietary version of wordpress and get hosting through a third party was because it allows me to use extensive plugins for just about anything. They have easy social sync options. So far I just set up Twitter, Facebook, and G-Plus. I know I said there would be no manual link building and when I said that  what was meant included writing articles myself just for the purpose of linking to the blog. That is not happening. All I am doing with the social sites is sharing every few posts so that I can build a community around those social media outlets.

Affiliate income will not happen until the blog, JayTraining, reaches 100 pages of pure unique content. At that point, the plan is to implement affiliate tracking links so that sales can be tracked. Only one page will have these type of links on it. 1 out of 100 is not a flag for the big Google. Another reason why this new web project feels like a really good idea is because it won't rely on search traffic as much in order to keep lots of visitors coming in. Since it is like a diary, people will want to come back and read more each time they are online. That is the gold standard of making money online in a passive way for a very long time.

I will be dependent on search engines for awhile because that will get word out about the brand of the blog and let brand new people see what I am doing. Eventually, the goal is to have 3% of all traffic be from Google.

So far on this new website I have 7 new posts, 2 pages at top, and social media setup. One thing I don't have on the site is the ability for people to +1 my actual URL through Google. That is what I am figuring out today because it is highly important to get going. The other thing that could be helpful is adding StumbleUpon.

Is It Easy to Make Money with Binary Options

This is a fundamental question many traders might have that are on the fence about doing binary option trades. The fact is that it is only as easy as you are good. Some people have a real talent for predicting short-term stock market moves. Others just like the adrenaline rush of the whole thing and enjoy simply throwing their money around at these kinds of exotic options.

I would say that doing these trades is much easier and more simplistic than trying to trade regular option contracts that fluctuate in price. Here is why. With those kinds of options, you get sucked in to hoping it turns out a good profit. Usually, this kind of waiting makes the value of your investment go to 0 over time.

With binary options, it is either a hit or miss and then you can go again. This is good because you can do it multiple times per day, by the hour, and even by the minute. Risking $50 and up to $2,000 can be a little risky when you first do it, but when you do 4 or 5 of these trades a day and hit on 3 of them, you will make money and it is fun.

Here is the strategy most professionals use. They like to hit one big win and then use the profits from their big gain to trade smaller trades of around $100. You can actually survive on that income and it is not risky when you are using profits from a previous trade. The key is making your first good binary option decision.

When you do this, stay calm and do things that make sense. This is how the market reacts. They go up and down and if they break trend lines (upper or lower) that could mean they will run in that direction even further. That little piece of information is all you need to know to start doing binary trades for yourself and be good at it.

I only suggest one broker for people to use on these kinds of derivatives. Click Here to See More Information On That Binary Options Broker.

Good Day To Make a Few Grand on Binaries

What a great day to make a few thousand bucks on binary options. The only way to do that is by checking out the price movements of the following stocks and trading based on technical moves. Here are the latest moves as of the close on Dec 12, 2012. I warn you to use your best decision making skills, but people usually are able to make the most money at trading when they don't feel much pressure.

COKE: Williams %R - This means downward pressure and a recovery of overbought. This stock has very little volume compared to the bigger names, but there are still buyers and sellers. As a result you get technical moves and you can make money on the price movement no matter what way it goes.

AMZN: Price made a double moving average crossover above (21-day and 50-day) on Dec 11, 2012. This is a short-term movement that is recognized as a bull signal. All you need to take this information as is the stock could have upward pressure today. Look for the valleys to enter call binary options to make money. Don't get into puts at peaks.

Don't think about only doing 1 trade per day. The pros do 5 to 9 every single day and they are good at it. Not everyone can do this because it takes skill and a lot of people who trade binary options just want to gamble at the casino. There is opportunity here for you to cash out if you do a little bit of due diligence.

Dec 11, 2012

A Few Technical Indicators for Short-Term

MSFT: Price crossed above 21 day moving average. This is a bullish event for short-term speculation. It could see a pop so if you want to do a binary trade on it, look for pull-backs on a daily level to enter into call options.

COKE: Bearish momentum. All that means is the stock price is moving downward faster right now than it was 10 bars ago.

That is the only analysis I can give for today. The markets open in 10 minutes. Good luck and keep in mind professional traders who make a lot of profit daily execute binary option trades 4-7 times per day. You have to plan out your risk and make decisions at the right time. Also, the broker that allows you to do these exotic option trades, recommended here on this blog, has a lot of holiday special things going on to give you better pricing.

Results for Today:

The market went on a mini rally today. MSFT finished up 1.41% and is up another 0.4% in after hours. The prediction was positive on the day. If you traded based on this and tried to find entry points at noon and quarter past 3:00 P.M. today, for call binary options that had hourly expirations, you would have made your profits. Since these types of financial derivatives payout between 60% and 80%, that would have left you with a good amount of money if you risk $1,000 on both trades. The beginning of the day was a big rally so you should have watched for a minor pull back to enter into. You could have also bought a high/low option with an hourly expiration right at the start of the day and had another gain. This is how you read a market based on the morning analysis.

For COKE it was a different story. This stock started off in a slump, but then traded up higher to end the day. If you were going to make profits on a put option of the binary form, you would have had to do an hourly expiration trade right at the open.

All I am trying to do is allow myself and others make money online. I believe the key to that is a good broker for binary options and sound research that drives your decisions each day. Make your live instead of letting others decide your life.

Where to Position Your Money in this Market: End of 2012

The market looks wild. Some companies seem strong while others are falling from their 52-week peaks. What the following analysis is based on is technical events that happened on the close as of the last trading day before now. That would have been on Dec. 7, 2012. Tomorrow the markets are open and you can go and make your trades. For the day traders, you may be interested in doing binary options with this information. I am only here to help and give you facts about underlying assets.

AAPL: MACD, crossed below 50 week moving average, and outside bar (all bearish for short and long-term) - The technical side of Apple is not looking to good. Be careful about shorting it though. The stock has broken down past resistances and could fall below what it started at in the beginning of 2012. It could also bounce back if investors think it is undervalued and has a good 10% upside looking out a year. This is kind of a stock that moves the entire market because it has a very high market cap. They make money and are rewarded for making products that people want to buy. If they can't think of something good to come out with in the next year besides refreshes of other products, it could be bad for the stock price.

IBM: Price crossed above 21 day moving average and hammer - These are both short term bull signals for this stock. I think it is a good time to buy this name going into next year. It has a good chance to get up past 215 or higher going forward. They aren't going anywhere looking into the future. They have too much of a grip on the market. Right now the bottom is forming. You can get more leverage by doing call options or high/low call options if you want to enter the binary market. Look out about a week.

C: Price crossed above 200 week moving average and Gap Up - The gap up is self-explanatory. The moving average cross shows strong signs for the stock if you are looking out a year. It just past the 200 week, which means it could make a run in the next year back up to 50/share. Not a bad gain from the 30's right now if you want to buy the stock out right.

Building New Niche Blog

What is up fellow marketers and money making people. I am starting a new website. This is going to be focused just on one thing. Bodybuilding and sports training. It is something I put a lot of my real life time into so it is congruent with my life. I will still be doing my weekly stock analysis here on Smart Helping and all the other kinds of things I post. My health supplement niche site is also going to be a work in progress. That is the main reason why I am starting a new blog. I am sand boxed and know so much more now than I used to about building online income with a website.

I am going to use hosting by SiteGround (just as I recommend them on my make money tools page) and utilize their wordpress CMS. This will make it easy to make my new blog. The way my content will be developed is simple. It will go along with my life and how I work out daily. Somehow I am going to track results and all that kind of thing. It will be about working out in different ways, me trying to get in shape, and news that is relevant to bodybuilding.

To make money from it, I am going to recommend a specific brand of sports supplements to use. It will only be on one page, just like I preach to do on all my posts about making good websites on this blog. You can go along with me as I do this and maybe get some new ideas for yourself about making a new site and building income.

One of the biggest things that I am going to focus on is not trying to make the site have 1 bazillion pages all at once. I will take my time and slowly build a unique, helpful resource for others to use. This is want ranks in the long run as I have figured out with this blog I am writing on now. Links don't matter until you are very popular so I will not link build. The main focus is just going to be on making something people want to read.

So...without further said, I am about to sign up with SiteGround and think of a domain name for the site. It will be a brand name that is short and not considered an exact match domain. I need something catchy that is easy to spread.

Also...the reason why I am paying for hosting rather than getting it free through is because I want more functionality, content management features, and flexibility. It is worth the $45/year in my opinion. I signed up for their holiday special and unchecked some of the features that I don't feel are necessary. Went with their basic hosting.

Well that was pretty easy. I thought of my new domain and got everything set up and it took me 20 minutes. So far SiteGround is doing a really good job at meeting my expectations. I am about to make my first post on the blog in the next hour. The blog is called JayTraining.

My strategy going forward now, looking at all my sites, is to let my health site get out of the sand box. Who knows how long that could take. Maybe 8 months. While that is happening, I am going to build this new blog up and see how fast it can start making me money. You will know as soon as I do when my first sale is made.

I am doing some experimenting with this new website. My plan is to never actively make any links toward it and I am only going to add new pages whenever I feel it is necessary to share with my audience. No promotions, no link exchanges, no nothing. It is plain and simple. I am strictly adding my own unique content and seeing what will happen. I am not even going to submit it, link it from a twitter, profile page, or anything.

So far I am very pleased with this hosting service. I have already got the theme I want, the layout, and my first post done as well as the future affiliate monetizing page done.

It is now December 13, 2012 and I have just thought of a new strategy to go with. It will give me enough time to work on the blog I am trying to build up and let my health site still grow. The amount of pages being added to my original niche site that is a few years old now will go from 1 per day to 2 per month. This keeps Google feeling like I am relevant and they will rank. It will also boost the quality and content of the new pages that I create. This is good for multiple reasons as far as SEO goes. I am happy about this.

Why I Need Binary Option Traders to Actually Trade

Over the past few months, I have been giving stock and index analysis posts about 3-4 times per week. The whole reason why I do this is so that people who want to or are already trading binary options can have a good idea of where the prices are moving at the beginning of each day. My posts for this are always in the morning and published live on this blog an hour or so before the U.S. markets open.

I only look at the underlying assets that can be traded with the binary options broker that is being recommended here on this blog. You may be asking why I spend so much time doing this every week. The reason why is money and helping others make money.

I want to make money by referring traders to the broker (I make 20% - 35% of your losses on every binary option trade. Don't stop reading right there though. It is very bad for me if a trader does one trade, loses all their money, and never trades again. My goal is to help people become successful more than not. I want people to trade and make profits for themselves. The only way both of those things happen is as a result of my actions on this blog. If I do something to make it easier for traders to trade, they can make good profits. They may lose every so often, but they will also win because of the help I give.

This is a dynamic relationship. It is a trade-off between the value I give to readers and the risk they take with their money. If you do a profitable trade, I make $0.00 and you make between 60% and 80% (roughly) of your initial investment. If you do a non-profitable trade, I make a percentage of your loss and you don't get anything back. The perfect situation is if you win 6 times for every 1 time you lose. This will allow me to keep making money and you to make good gains on your investment. After a few good trades, you will have made way more than your initial investment and then have put yourself into a situation where you get your initial capital risk (money you put into the trade) back in profits and can trade with that.

The binary options brokers never go out of business because so many people use them as a casino rather than a sophisticated money maker based on the stock and index market. The different you would have is my semi-daily posts on what is going on in the market. That will allow you to improve your chances greatly at making money with options. All you have to do is come here and read my posts in the morning and then trade through the day. Lots of people like to do it while they are doing their normal jobs. It is easy if you have a smart phone.

Finally, you can trade binary's around the clock in different markets. It is riskier because I don't give any analysis on foreign markets, but if a market is open around the world, you can trade binary options in it through the broker I recommend. That means potential money making at any time of the day. You can really build up your bank if you do this a few days a week, but it has to be done right. If you just want an adrenaline rush and treat it like a casino, you can do that too.

Planning Your Finances: This Matters

This blog is all about how to help others become financially sound and aware of options available to do this. Given that goal of this blog, Ron Paul has given his final speech in government and it has something to do with making money if you listen closely. He went out with a ball of fire and is calling out everything. The best reason to watch this whole video is because it helps people think about solutions and focus on fixing problems rather than just mindless ranting.

Your money and wealth gaining abilities are directly affected by what he is talking about. You can kiss free market and the ability of any one person to create lots of money for their self in a free way goodbye. Just listen to what he says.

The most important points are the following:

  • Freedom brought forth wealth for the entire country (USA) since its birth.
  • Greed for personal gain and stomping down individual freedom is leading to a fiscal cliff.
  • Printing tons of money in order to boost the economy won't ever work.
  • Obama is an idiot (multiple direct citations will be shown to prove this).
  • There is hope, but people need to start thinking for themselves.
  • The fear that founders of this country's constitution had are coming true.
  • Without individual freedoms being preserved, it becomes difficult for prosperity to exist at any level.

Some Big Technical Signals as 2012 Ends

Happy Thursday to potential and current traders at all levels. It doesn't matter if you are doing binary options, regular option contracts, or buying and selling stocks outright, you can benefit from this insight if you are looking at one of these particular stocks. Some giant firms that put billions of dollars in the market only look at technical analysis like the following:

AAPL: There is a major technical signal flurry of bearish and more bearish events going off for this stock lately. On Dec. 4th the price crossed below the 200 day and 50 day simple moving average. As of yesterday, Dec 5th, there was more chaos as the price dropped down lower and lower. It will test 500 and that could be a decent buying point, but it could slip past that mark and return way down. The stock has missed earnings the last two quarters and it is about to do a technical move called the Death Cross. That means the 50-day sma passes below the 200-day sma. This could take us way down. If you are looking to trade binary options on this, look at near-term high/low put options and long-term call options after the next 2 weeks are over. It's close yesterday was 538.79.

XOM: This stock hit a short-term technical trigger yesterday because the price dropped below the 21-day moving average. The close was 87.73.

MSFT: Here we hit a short-term signal yesterday called a MACD. It is a measure that tells you if the price is strong or weak at this moment. Right now the price is gaining strength according to this. Its close was $26.67.

These insights have to be updated each day because the market is always changing and different things happen. All you can do is make the best possible decision at a given moment to make money. Anything can always happen.

This is a random side note. If you want to feel better, listen to this song. It is a beast and will get your day going in a good way. Always have positive momentum...

Lots of Short Term Technical Events: AAPL, IBM, & More

It's another wonderful morning on planet Earth and a great time to make some profit with binary options. Here is what the market ended up looking like at the close yesterday (Dec. 3, 2012).

AAPL - commodity channel index - short-term bullish - This metric measures the deviation from its 20-day average. Right now the oscillator is at +100, which means a short pop in the stock is likely in the next few days. That means watch for dips that you can make call options on.

IBM - momentum bearish - This measures velocity of price change. Right now the stock price is falling faster in a downward direction than it was moving 10 bars ago.

XOM - price crosses below 21-day moving average and momentum bearish - These two technical signs point at weaker pricing in the short term for this stock.

JPM - outside bar (bearish) - Here is a short term move. This is more of a bar pattern that was created as of the previous trading day prior to this morning. It is simply a sign of exhaustion. Every day there is a new bar that measures the buying and selling. This is a case when the buyers and sellers traded higher and lower than the previous day. I would feel confident doing a high/low binary option put at a suspected peak in price today with a daily expiration.

You should always know exactly what you are doing before you put money into it. The same holds true with learning about binary options. Here is the broker I would suggest doing these kinds of trades with.

Importance of a Memorable Domain Name

If you are just starting a new website and need a domain name, be very thoughtful about it. This is the single most important thing that is required if you want to succeed online. You domain name must be easy to share and remember for other people. It can make or break you in the online world no matter what business you are trying to promote or get a hold in.

Having a memorable name will determine your level and ceiling of success. I wish more than anything that I could go back in time and change the domain of my health site. This may turn out to be why I can never grow sales or traffic in the long run.

At the time, I had decided I wanted a domain with the same keywords that I thought lots of people would type in. Little did I know Google and other search engines hated this. By picking a simple brand name that was short and sweet, no matter what it was, I probably could be making a few grand per month by now given I did the same amount of work.

So, hold everything else the same and make one thing different (making my domain a branded short memorable word) and the money I would be making would be sky rocketing right now.

Pick something memorable if nothing else. Starting a new website can seem like a lot of stuff when you first get your web hosting, but this step is beyond important.

Finding Assets that Go Up in Value

This is probably the biggest and most important problem investors and business owners have. It is tough to figure out what assets will give you the best reward for the risk. If you want to figure out what offers the best gains, there is an easy formula to follow.

Make sure you buy it for the lowest price possible. Don't underestimate the value of monthly cash flows (such as buying commercial real estate that builds rent revenue). Also, if you own commercial real estate, that means you can run your own business through it and owning it means no rent expense for you. If you get a place that has rent space surplus, you can make money that way and still run a business through the place if it is in a good location.

That will give you some really good returns. There are other things to do that require much less leg-work. If you want to buy and sell stock, that is an option. It is intense when you do it with a lot of money, but doesn't give you the experience of dealing with all the real-world aspects of buying buildings and dealing with tenants. Some people like that aspect of buying hard building type assets.

Other options you have could be with websites. This is tricky, but if you want to buy a website that is already making money, a 4 or 5 multiple of net income would be really good. That means if a website is consistently making 300k/year a good price to buy that business for would be for 1.2 million. If it makes 20k/year, you may want to offer something like 80k. The way you win in that asset purchase is by knowing how to make the website make even more money per year and then re-sell it for a higher multiple or just keep making the passive income or however the website earns cash.

You have to know what something is worth if you are looking to spend a lot of money on assets. The knowledge will keep you from paying way too much. Another way you can buy real estate cheap is by going to public weekly auctions. Many towns do these once or twice a month on distressed assets and if you find auctions where barely anyone goes, it can be a really goo deal finder.

Income Report November 2012

Whats up people of the internet. Well...this month sucked again because my rankings are so bad for my health niche website. I worked on it harder in this month than in the past year. Every day I have been adding new unique content about one of the six main topics that the site is about. This strategy should pay off for me in the long-term. I am hoping that Google is just taking time to re-evaluate and rank my site. It is in the sand box for sure with a few visitors per day max.

When I think of how much time was put into it, it makes me sick to my stomach to think it is not doing as well as I planned this far into it. There is good news though. It only cost me $10/month now to run the whole entire site and I don't spend money on advertising or anything else. Having such a low monthly cost allows me to make a profit every single month. I have never lost money if you look at all the cash in-flows compared to out-flows since it is so cheap to run.

Other things I have been working on include making daily (almost daily) stock analysis predictions based on technical event triggers that occur on the prior days trading day close. This helps people who want to trade binary options have been insight on the market before they initiate option positions. This has been picking up over the past month. I was able to refer 3 new clients to the broker I recommend, but these people have not initiated and trades yet. The goal is for traders to see what information I have each morning before the U.S. markets open, and make a lot of money with binary option trades every single day. It's not too difficult if you use common sense.

Anyway...that is that. Here is the amount of money I actually made and it was all from my health site in November.

November 2012 Site Earnings

  • Niche website earnings: $256.00
  • Costs: $9.95 (for unlimited pages) + $103/year which equals out to $8.58/month. Other costs related to this would be the domain name renewal at $1/month or $12/year.

I guess the good news is I am still making a decent amount of money as far as the operation of my site goes. The potential is sooo much greater than this though. The niche I am in is a multi-billion dollar per year industry. I know there is more money than this if I can just rank in the search engines and build a solid customer base, the money would sky rocket.

If you want to start your website and do what I am trying to do in a niche of your own or the same one I am in, I would suggest starting out by getting web hosting and everything with SiteGround.

First Chart Pattern Occurrence in Awhile

It is a wonderful Friday morning here on November 30, 2012 and we have two important stocks to watch today as far as trading binaries goes. The second one (JPM) had a trigger off a chart pattern formation, which is the first in a few weeks for any of the stocks I analyze. All that means is the signal, which turned out to be bullish, is stronger than a normal event trigger because it is a distinct pattern representing the fight between buyers and sellers.

GOOG: Commodity Channel Index - This short-term bullish event occurred as of yesterday's close. It is just a measure of the average price over the last 20 bars (days) and shows the deviation from that price in an oscillator chart. As of the previous day's close, it was up over +100, which indicates possible long position entry points today i.e. look at daily to weekly high/low call options.

JPM: Big technical event on this one showing up - We have a symmetrical continuation triangle (bullish) pattern that is in-play. This is an intermediate-term outlook and comes up rarely. It means there was an uptrend going for a few months, but then a big pull-back hit. The big pull-back then went into a series of higher lows and lower highs which formed the shape of a triangle on the charts. Yesterday it broke to the upside past the triangle resistance levels. It was trading at 41.22 and now the target is 45.00 by year-end 2012. Try to identify good valleys to go long in with options and binary options. If the stock price drops down another dollar or two you need to ignore the chart pattern and look to the next opportunity.

Trying to Make Money or Be Happy?

I think a big problem among individuals in the current society is seeking money to the extent that they can no longer live an enjoyable life. It is a catch 22 because if you just want to work a 9-5, you still don't get to do the things you want and if you spend 100% of your time trying to build a business, there is no time for you to enjoy all that life has to offer. The reason people need money is to survive and getting caught up in trying to make too much money because you think it will make you happier can prove ineffective at letting you be happy.

There is some middle ground but it's hard to find. The lucky ones are able to think of a way that allows them to make a living, but also allows them plenty of time to enjoy life however they want. The luckiest ones find a way to earn a living and have plenty of money by doing what they really like doing and have no time constraints or deadlines.

One way to accomplish this goal of making a lot of money in a short amount of time and allowing you to be happy finding things in life that are enjoyable to do is by understanding what financial tools and options are available to you. Very little people in this world understand or know how to make a lot of money without selling drugs or working 24/7.

One new tool I found that traders and investors like because of its quick nature and high potential profit is trading binary options. It is a type of advanced derivative and some people call it an exotic option. If you understand the concept of regular options trading, this will make perfect sense and seem much simpler. The risk is still there, but it is a different type of trading or gambling as some might see it because of how the option contracts you trade are set up.

The way you make money from these things is pretty straight forward. You have a fixed profit that you can earn if the rules you make when you enter the trade end up being true. It works best on an hourly basis, but can also be used for longer time frames such as day end, week end, or month end. Let's do an example:

Let's say it is 10:00 A.M. and you are looking at AAPL or GooG and you thought the price would be higher in 3 hours than it is now. You can go on your smart phone or computer, log into your binary options broker, and do a trade that pays you anywhere from 55% to 85% profit return if the stock is higher in 3 hours than it is now. You can do the same thing if you think it will be lower. That is the difference between a high/low call or put option.

This kind of money generator is fun and takes little time. You just have to learn how the stock market moves and this is something I talk about on a semi-weekly basis. When I have a lot of time I usually do a stock analysis each morning only on the underlying assets that are available through the binary options broker I recommend traders use.

This is just one idea and there are many out there.

IBM Analysis, Technical

We are looking at a short-term and an intermediate term move. This stock seems to be gaining negative momentum. I have my own way to tell if that is happening. It is when there are double the bearish events compared to bullish events looking out 9 months.

In the short-term there are more positive vents than negative (5-4) respectively. Everything on the intermediate and long-term side of things points to a cycle of short bursts of price increases followed by longer spans of price decreases.

The most recent technical event was a double moving average crossover where the stock went below the 50 and 200 day moving averages. The close event was 191.23 yesterday. This stock has been going sideways all in 2012 since mid Spring. That means the market is uncertain of what direction to take the price. Various factors may have led the price to move in that way, but the fact that nobody can argue with is what has happened.

All you need to do is pull up the IBM chart and see for yourself how it has moved in the past 8 months. In the next few weeks the price looks to be going higher, but in the next few months it could drop down and in a year it could be around the same price as it is now or lower.

This is all based on the technical side of things. Also, I hold no exposure to this asset in any way.

Positive Momentum Carries Stocks High on Technical Side

What you should take away from this is that the market is setting up to rally. Some stocks will go higher than others based on company specific events and health, but in large cap stocks like the ones you see below, the market seems to be gaining price strength for the short and intermediate term. That doesn't mean strong gain opportunities looking a few years out, but you may want to look at short-term derivative plays such as binary options or regular options. Today, all the stocks, except for the first one, I looked at show positive signs. The entire market goes in momentum swings when looking at these heavily traded firms. Looks to be gaining some strength.

C: Price crosses below 50-day moving avg. (intermediate term bearish) and bearish momentum - Simple enough to gauge. The price is most likely going down over the next few weeks. Play your binary options at the peaks and be very careful on long positions. They also have a decent amount of negative news about this bank falling behind somewhat.

AMZN: Triple moving average crossed above 4-9-18 day (short-term bullish) and price also crossed above 50 day moving average (intermediate term bullish). There has also been a lot of consecutive days with positive momentum. Watch to get in on high/low call binary options at valleys during the day and week. I would say these technical moves do have some credence, but don't be the ranch on it. You want to ease into it.

MSFT: MACD (bullish) - This technical move is a complex calculation that simply says the pricing is stronger in the shorter-term compared to the longer-term. It is a short-term technical stock event, but does have some traction. Watch for the dips on the day to enter call options.

COKE: Price crossed above 50-day moving average (intermediate-term bullish)

Stock Market Looking Positive Again

Alright, now that the holiday week is over I can get back on track with the stock and index technical event triggers. I don't know what to expect from Friday, but probably more sideways movement. Remember that trading binary options is a great way to make yourself money quickly. You can do it on your smart phone while at your normal job or do it professionally during all hours of the day and make a living at it that way. Today, here is the pressure for the following:

Goog - short-term bullish momentum - Pretty self-explanatory. This metric shows velocity of price change and it has upward movement that is higher than 10 bars ago.

AAPL - Price crossed above 50-week moving average (long-term bullish), price crosses above 21 day moving average (short-term bullish), and short-term KST bullish. Well, all technical analysis for this stock points to a higher price. If I liked buying stocks outright, now would be the time for entry in long positions and call options on daily expiration levels as well as weekly for binary trades.

MCD - Price crosses above 21 day moving avg and short-term bull momentum. Looks like we could see a pop in this stock soon.

NKE - Let's just say it had 6 bullish event triggers that happened on Friday. They were all short-term accept for two (price going above 21-week moving avg and MACD). If I had to make an educated guess on the price movement of this stock today, it would be that it trades higher at the end of day than the beginning of day.

If I have time this afternoon, I will try and go through each stock's price movement that ends up happening today and measuring how well these technicals would have helped you trade binary options better.

Getting Backlinks or Building Content

Something I have been doing to rank better is build content on my site rather than build content on other blog domains that I own in order to help one site rank better by linking from a blog to my main niche website. That would be called building backlinks by blogging. This has started to die out recently because of updates. It is why I took down links from here to my health site. The question is: What works better for ranking?

I believe that getting relevant links to your website from highly reputable sources is 100x more powerful than building content on your own website. However, if you build content on your site that gets thousands of people to +1 it or share it with others on the internet in a public way, that is also going to be really good at helping your pages rank higher for what they are about.

It is not something that you can just fake either. Google is smart enough to make their algo much more sophisticated than we can know. They are a multi hundred billion dollar company that is only relevant because of their search engine. Trust me when I say they know how to give proper rankings and differentiate between a website resource that is truly helpful and on that is a spam type site where nobody on Earth would like to read what is on it.

So, if you own a website or are thinking about building a website for the purpose of making money, you had better start thinking of a cost effective way to develop content that people love. Or you need to make a product that people love and sell it online with e-commerce services. The product needs to be unique to sell and if you are selling information in the form of ad revenue or affiliate product sales, you need to have content that is unique and worth a visit.

The next thing you can't fake is time relevance. The amount of time your website is relevant for certain keywords is going to be major in effecting your rankings. Something that has been around for a few years won't rank as well as if it were around and still getting new content added to it for 9 years. Search engines look at that when they decide what should show up when a keyword is typed in.

Now, there is a way around all of this where you can have a low-quality search optimized website, but still make a lot of money online with it. You do offline marketing. Build a network and contacts that you try and sell products to. Simply refer them to your website's domain name and away they go to shop from you.

How to Position Yourself with the Fiscal Cliff Coming

As a business, corporate entity, or individual, you have to figure out what you are going to do in order to financially prepare for the fiscal cliff. Nothing may happen that will effect you or it could have a drastic effect depending on how the market reacts and where your money is. It is possible that the value of a dollar could go so far down that there is a run on the banks. People could panic and crash the entire stock market worse than in 2008.

This is all a real possibility. The best way to position yourself is by setting up a low-cost business. Don't take on crazy amounts of risk that put you in a debt slave position. The reason why a low-cost business is a good idea is because it gives you leverage to ask for something in return for what your business is providing. If the money system goes bad, you can still ask for things that you need to survive in return for what your business offers. It could be any kind of trade goods. The world can still move forward without a specific foreign exchange rate and money system.

A business with little risk would be one that has few employees and little over head. That could be real estate, software development, a website, buying and selling assets, or anything really.

It sets the value for a lot of things so that people get paid for what they are actually worth. You can think of it as the ultimate way to create efficiency. For example, let's say I had the knowledge and resources to provide a garbage pickup and disposal service. Instead of getting paid cash to operate my business, maybe I would require a certain amount of nutritious food and water. there is no middle man. I get paid with the stuff I would normally go spend my cash on with a credit card. Taking out the store and money system means there is less costs involved in bringing goods to the market. You can get more things for the same amount of work.

If you were an average burger flipper at a restaurant, you now get paid in living essentials or whatever has trade value that you would normally buy with the money you used to be paid with. No more bank and no more greed in building up your bank account with a digital number. There is no more real meaning of rich. If you want to control the most resources, you have to provide the most value. It's that simple.

Everyone will be thinking about how they can help other people and in-turn society becomes super efficient, people are happy doing things that they like to do, and we all survive because the resources are still available. We just acquire them directly instead of with a set currency. Everyone will have to become extremely good at acquiring things they have deficiencies in by trading what they have in surplus.

Maybe this is what our world needs.

So Many Discounts for Web Hosting

It is Thanksgiving week and black Friday is tomorrow. I have seen deals upon deals for web hosting offers. As you may know, I am in the market and have hosting myself for various websites. So...what is the best and should you jump on starting a hosting account now by locking in a super low rate for your first year. I will tell you this. I suggest users go with SiteGround, which you can see at the top of this blog under "make money tools". Their current offer for the whole week of thanksgiving is $3.95/month.

The value is good and it doesn't take much to make money with that kind of cost. You may need hosting and a web builder for a new business idea, blog, or need to get a website up for your organization. They have the best tools available no matter what you need on the web. You can integrate with Wordpress, Joomla, and easily setup e-commerce on your site when hosting with Siteground.

Every internet marketer always seeks out the best provider when picking a host because this is such an important part of being successful. Subtle things can make or break you in the online world. When your host provides so much value for you as this company, it allows marketers to focus on what is important: Ideas, content curation, and building a brand.

You need to have all the right things setup for search engines so you get the maximum traffic out of your efforts. It is tough to build a high-traffic to a site when you are stuck thinking about how to build it. I have been in the industry for a long time and know what to look for in a web host. These guys got it. If you are looking for online hosting deals this week, the best is Siteground hands down.

Oh Man, Getting Traffic from Google

My health site is getting killed in the search engines. It is literally dying before my eyes. It has been getting worse and worse since the beginning of October. The funny thing was right before this hit, I was getting mountains of traffic. The search engines were actually giving me close to 100 visitors a day to Herbal Showcase. Now I am down to a trickle of 1 to 2 visits.

I don't know if my rankings are getting hurt because of changes made on the site or because of the exact match domain update. I did change my linking strategy to include affiliate pages right in the navigation. That means no matter what page of my site you were on, you could see selected product pages (which contained affiliate links). It does seem like right when I started doing that, my traffic stopped.

So, now I have began a new strategy for the site. I made the navigation only include pages at the top that are directories for the category of products the page is about. The home page still contains links to affiliate pages, but now if you are on any other page of the site, you can't directly access an affiliate page from navigation. This means neither can Google. I cut down on the amount of links going into my affiliate product sites by almost 600 * (however many products I had). That should give me an improvement looking forward to the next month.

My website is 595 pages of completely unique content. By my calculations, this should give me a good amount of search traffic. The markets it is in have billions of dollars flowing through them each year in the online world. I just need a tiny percentage of that market share to make a really good living with the site.

The content building technique I just started using a few weeks ago was adding 1 article per day about 1 of the 6 main topics of the website. Again, the results after a few months will tell more than after a few weeks so we will have to wait and see about that.

If you are worried about getting hurt by rankings too, try a navigation strategy that limits the amount of affiliate links you have. Also, make sure 90% of the content you add is helpful, useful, unique, free of affiliate links, and not too comercial looking. People want information and if you do a good job at giving it to them, they may be willing to check out your recommendations for products that are in the niche you are in.

No amount of traffic can replace trust and no amount of hard work and get you results in Google. You have to work hard the right way or the money doesn't flow. Another thing to do is don't stop adding content. The king of internet is fresh content that people love to share. This will make your grow more than anything.

I do want to say one more thing about changes I made to help my search engine optimisation for Herbal Showcase. Previously, I had each page of this blog (Smart Helping) linking to the health niche website. In my opinion, it hurt the overall link profile of both sites. So I took these links down a few days ago. The results will show and I will let you know if the rankings have improved.

You will also see this in my monthly income reports for how much money is coming in from that passive income stream.

If you feel like your website could use a new back end or maybe that you need a new web hosting provider to build your niche blog/website with, my recommendation can be found here.

I am not done yet. I haven't mentioned how this blog is doing as far as traffic goes. It is doing well. I get way more traffic here compared to anything else. You will also notice that my domain would not qualify for a beating from Google's Exact Match Domain update. An interesting thing that just became apparent to me was that I do link directly to a few pages in the navigation of Smart Helping that do contain affiliate links. My rankings have not been hurt at all and continue to improve.

Looks like it is back to the drawing board for figuring out how to increase website traffic. Any thoughts or ideas are appreciated.

And...if you want to see what else I am working on, check out how I built a new niche blog recently.

Day Trading or Binary Options?

So what is the best way to make money? Is it day trading or doing binary option trades. Well, you can consider both a form of trading, but with different assets. Each has its own set of risks and rewards. It just depends on your style and what you like to do more. Everyone is different and should have their own strategy for making money on a daily basis in this market that goes up and down. can make money hourly and by the minute with binary options. Many brokers now offer something called 60 second trading where you can predict if the price is going up or down in the next minute. That is pretty risky, but you still have a 50% to get your set profit. That is not actually too bad for all or nothing because there is skill involved. You just need to know how trends work and technical signals will help you make good money. This also allows you to make money no matter what direction an asset goes.

If you day trade more by buying and selling actual stocks, this is much safer, but the profit goes from 55% - 85% down to 3-5% if you are lucky. The downside risk is also much safer because it will not break your bank in a short amount of time.

If you day trade with regular option contracts, it gets really risky again. I had 4.2k go down to 0 within one day so if you think trading options is safe, think again. Everything has its + and -.

The reason why I like binary options so much is because they give you a set of rules and you just have to play by them to make money. Just about every other day, I will give market analysis of what a few stocks are looking to do before the market opens. What is mainly looked at when I do this is technical events based on the previous day close. This gives you a sort of gauge on where the price is moving. If you have a good handle on that, plenty of money can be made by trading binary option contracts.

You have to be willing to make 3 to 6 trades per day with these. The pros will win 90% of their trades on good days and this is not very uncommon. It is just a matter of watching the market movement and get into put options at peaks if it is at the top of a range. Then, when the price goes to support, look at buying call options. The somewhat difficult part of this is picking the expiration times. Like I said before, there are minute expirations and hourly ones that you can pick through the day.

The binary options broker that I recommend here on this blog will allow you to pick expirations at any hour of the day. You can enter a high/low put option at 10:00 A.M. and set it up to expire at 2:00 P.M. for example. If you picked it was higher and were right, you make your set profit. This is flexible because you can pick any time-span during the trading day or just do end of day or end of week.

People have a hard time getting rid of their emotions when they risk $500 or $1,000 at a time. That is why you can start slow. The minimum amount of risk you can do is around $25 so you can get used to how this works. Once you get the hang of it, increase your capital risk, but do it with sound decisions unless you just feel like gambling on the stock market. In that case, have fun!

GOOG, MSFT, C Analysis after the Gap Up

Trading today on November 20, 2012 is going to be another fun one. Most likely we will see sideways movement after the entire market did a gap up yesterday. That means getting in on hourly binary option expiration trades on the call and put side. Make sure no matter what asset you choose, it develops a good range before you begin going at it.

Well, on the news of a possible deal with the fiscal cliff, U.S. stocks sky rocketed yesterday across the board. The question is if that is sustainable or not. Each individual company has different factors that effect its price so when one piece of news effects the entire stock market, people are not looking at fundamentals or anything at all. I suspect we will see uncertainty and then over the next month and a half that will turn into doubt as the stocks fall by the end of the year.

Today might result in a little bit more upside, but it probably won't last as news is only temporary. To make money, you just need to make sound decisions that make sense to you. There are going to be a lot of bull technical events because of the news yesterday so here we go.

GOOG - Fast stochastic, Williams %R, Relative Strength Index (All short-term bullish). Keep in mind on the 9ths, this stock crossed below the 21 week moving average so that is still in play.

Day Trading Result: Check it out. This stock went up and went down and back up again. Ended up finishing .26% higher than the open, but definitely uncertainty has come to the market.

MSFT - hammer (short-term bullish) and that is just because of the news. On a long-term bearish side of things, this stock crossed below the 200 week moving average on Nov 16 so that is still in play. If you are planning on investing in this company for the long hall, wait. It is going to be higher at some point, but there is a lot of downward pressure in play for a year or so. For binary options strategies, just watch the day range. It could have another up day so watch for hourly high/low call options.

Day Trading Result: Again, pretty much even. The stock set the range in the first few minutes of trading and went up and down from there. This was expected.

C - Gap up and price crosses above 50 day moving average (intermediate term bullish). This is a move that has some decent upside potential if you wanted to invest outright. The stock is looking like it could jump higher over the coming month. Again, on a daily basis, I would say it will be confused and go sideways and slightly upwards.

Day Trading Result: You can't get much better than these results. This stock also went exactly sideways. Man, you could have made a killing in the binary market just using plain common sense. The market is going sideways. Citigroup finished down 0.28% on the day. It went up and down and up. Very predictable.

That is what you can watch for today. All of those assets are available to trade binaries on with the one broker that I recommend to anyone trying to trade in that fashion.

When you trade during any length of time, you want to find places that are predictable. Even predicting uncertainty is good because you know what happens if that is how the market feels. Just look at todays results and what was said this morning before the open. I will have to look at the market again tomorrow morning to analyze what is going on. It might be completely different or similar.

Binary Option Plays to Look for 11/19/12

Welcome to a traders paradise on this fine Monday morning. You can get the most credible and timely stock movement information from the technical side of things here. The market is tricky and it is tough to know all the different technical events that happen to stocks. I have provided that for you here today. I hope that you can make lots of money with this information and also have fun.

COKE - Triple moving avg crossover to downside (4 week, 9 week, 18 week) intermediate-term bearish, RSI (Relative strength index) short-term bullish, and price crosses below 50 week moving average (long-term bearish). These technical events mean the stock could really have a good chance of entering a bear cycle. Now, it could have a little pop with that relative strength index, but the pressure is to go downward over the next year so you have to keep that in mind to make money with binary option on it.

JPM - Double moving average crossover (21 day and 50 day) Short-term bearish, Williams %R (Short-term bearish). Both of these events were looking at short-term downward pressure. Watch the stock today and look at hourly binary option high/low puts to enter into on the peaks. When you think the stock has hit the highest point it is going to hit on the day, enter into a daily expiration also. You can have multiple binary option positions open at once.

IBM - RSI (relative strength index) Short-term bullish - Yes I know, finally a bullish signal. This stock has come down a bit in the past couple months and now looks to be forming a bottom. Weather you want to get in down for a long position by buying the stock outright or looking at call options, that is where the pressure is. I don't think it has room to go much lower unless we have another complete crash like in 2008.

Keep in mind all-or-nothing trading is tough to do and requires you to have some thick skin that is used to seeing money go way up and possibly way down in a short amount of time. The rush is intense and will allow you to enjoy yourself none the less.

Update for Today: News of fiscal cliff takes all stocks higher. This basically wiped out all technical events because they were not in effect for this unknown news that happened. Watch for down turns over the next week though if this news is not sustainable. Keep in mind specific companies will have varied results in reality and that is different from news stories that make buyers enter the market on a wide scale like this. The thinking is that the market will be higher in a month and a year, but some sort of bad global news could reverse that. Just be wary and make good decisions.

SNE, MCD, AXP Stock Analysis

Here are 3 stocks that I have given the daily analysis for. It is more of a feel for what these stocks are doing so that you know how to trade binary options with them today. The market is in a real bear state and looks to be turning it into a cycle going through for the rest of 2012. Today is Nov, 16 2012. There is always money to be made no matter what direction things go.
SNE - Gap Down - What this means in the context of this situation is a break in the support level, which resulted in a much lower stock price.Since this gap down happened two days ago the stock has stayed at that lower level. I would say the pressure is still downward so it would be safer to look at trading binary high/low option puts at peaks in the day rather than trying to find valleys to buy call options.

MCD - Weak pricing - This is just something I made up as far as an official technical event. The stock has been falling and falling, which the technicals did support over the past month and a half. Food prices are rising and cost are looking to increase for this industry. People are also looking to be healthy. Bottom line. This thing will fall until people feel like it is a good buy. That could still be lower and the next level of support is at 76.50, which is down a bit. If you wanted to trade daily binary options on this right now look at entering peaks with put options and don't do any call options at all.

AXP - Triple moving avg. crossover to downside - This happened two days ago. Right now the stock price of this is consolidated after having a run up in the first quarter of the year. It could very well give up all those gains. If that happens, a lot of money will be made on put option in the binary markets.

To me, it seems like the entire market could have major sell-offs through the next few months until some major support levels are created.

What Does Cookie Cutter Mean in Business

Well this is a day where I did not do any stock analysis. Just taking one day off from it, but will be back hard tomorrow morning. Right now lets talk about cookie cutter business approach philosophy.

Cookie Cutter business means you scale something by doing high quantity with the same quality. It usually results in low quality and low customization. It can be good for certain business and bad for others (like the ones that actual need results).

You may find this easier to understand if I relate it to online business. If you are trying to build a website, you may learn that you need back links. In order to get those good back links, you may also learn that it needs to be from a good quality article. A cookie cutter approach to this would be to write a ton of articles that have no value and are just generic mind numbing and uninteresting content that doesn't give any extra help to people that already know something about the topic.

A non-cookie cutter approach would be taking the time to develop content that is useful and new and link to your websites from that. It takes longer, but the quality is much higher and it is more effective in the long run.

Online Job (For Entrepreneurs)

I am not saying this will make you $100/day or $1000/day. If you want an online job, you probably are sick of working at the office under some tyrannical boss all day long doing remedial tasks that don't stimulate you at all. I consider an online job simply working online. You don't have to work online, although you could get paid by being a Virtual Assistant (VA) or work through a third party broker like Elance. The great thing about it is you can work for yourself very easily. This gives you the fulfillment and joy that you can't achieve by being an employee.

The ".com" bubble may have burst, but the internet is still alive and kicking. As long as people are using the internet and it is relevant, there is a place for people to making a living online. The key is in how you do it and how to actually figure out what you should be working on. As far as how you go about building an online income by working at it, there are many options.

All an entrepreneur means is you invest some of your money into something that you are planning on turning into a revenue stream. The vast majority of people who became successful online made their first and main investment in a website. This may cost you a few hundred bucks per year, but the income potential is a few hundred thousand per year.

Here is a list of a few things people that classify themselves as having an online job might put their money into regularly:

You Can:
  • Buy a website at Flippa - Collect the online revenues/re-sell/combination of both. If you don't know what to look for when buying a site, I wrote about that here.
  • Build your own website - That link takes you to my page where I recommend a web hosting provider. It will be the first thing on the list. Look for SiteGround. Once you have a good traffic website, turning it into money is easy with ad revenue. Just get the traffic by making popular content that people will want to share. Also see: Building My Niche Blog.
  • Develop software - Hire a programmer to put your idea to life. You pay a one time fee for their software and then it is simply about being able to market a website that sells the software. 
  • Sell your art online - If you have a really good artistic side, make stuff in real life and sell it online with a blog or traditional website. People usually love to work on their creations and being able to make money from it is just a nice bonus.
These are just a few small examples of what you can do by making your own online job. Don't think you have to trade your hours for dollars. The potential of what you can make is so much higher if you create a job for yourself. It encompasses so many other parts of your emotions and is much more rewarding financially.

The part that I want to make clear about trying this is that it can take time. I would not say it is extremely difficult once you learn the basics about online jobs. It just takes time for you to figure out what to work on and that once you have developed your online presence or brand for whatever you want to do, it is just about outsourcing your work, or doing it yourself because you love the content of it.

There is just soooo much opportunity available. If I were a betting man, I would say 10 new ideas that will make people hundred thousands to millions of dollars will be thought of every month around the world. It is up to you to be a part of that statistic.

Having an online job can be freeing. Countless people are earning a living like this and it makes them happy. Find your niche according to your strengths and just open all the barriers. Be open to everything and anything so you get a feel for what you can potentially do. At the heart of whatever you do, it is going to have to have some impact on peoples lives in order for you to be successful. Find out what people need in today's world or figure out what they will want in the future and provide it better than anyone else.

Switching to a More Credible Binary Options Broker

You might have noticed that I switched who I suggest as a trading broker recently.

It is imperative that a traders binary options broker follow strict policy, be trustworthy and regulated so they can't manipulate markets and take all your money. I have not directly had a bad experience with the broker I have been promoting for awhile, which was AnyOption, but a lot of people complain about how their customer service is bad and they don't care about their clients. This is not acceptable.

As per that information I found, my search begins for a new binary options broker to recommend to traders that is safe and regulated so that nothing is being manipulated. In business, you have to constantly re-think and figure out how to make things better.

In order for me to provide the best possible value to people who want to make money with binary options, I have to find the best broker available for people to use. I just searched around for a few hours and I think I found a really good firm. It is regulated to make sure you're going to get the right closing prices for your option trades based on a regulated market price evaluating system. This ensures that no manipulation can happen. I have heard many great experiences from traders who were able to deposit their money, succeed in doing a profitable trade, and have no problem withdrawing all of their money.

Main Factor for Picking This Service Over All Other Binary Option Brokers

The biggest plus was that they are subject to:
  • Regulation
  • Have a very user-friendly trading platform
  • Are completely transparent
  • Provide quality customer support

It puts you right on the front line of contract trading in the financial markets as a professional trader. If you want to trade like this, it is safest and most trusted way to do so.

They also have great customer service and a phone line you can call for help or problems. This is a really good broker that you can trust to trade with. That is the most important thing beyond making correct decisions.

The financial service I found was ZoneOption. Good luck on your trades and you're welcome for finding the absolute best binary broker to trade with. Beyond being completely open, honest, upfront, and not participating in fraudulent behavior, they also have a user-friendly platform that makes it easy to trade quickly. You can do it on a tablet if you want in-between your regular job.

NKE, MSFT, XOM Stock Analysis

It's time to start making some profits with high/low options. That is a form of binary trading that can help you start cleaning up 70-80% profit gains multiple times per day. Watch the daily trends and when you see a dip or peak developing and signs of a reversal, do the trade. These previous day stock analysis will also give you insight on what the buyers and sellers are feeling. It is not a for sure measure, just use this information as an emotional indicator of what people did yesterday. To sign up for the only broker I recommend and trade binary options, click here.

XOM - Inverted Hammer - Short-term bullish. This means that yesterday on Nov. 13, 2012, the stock made a candlestick technical move looking at the entire day as a whole. This shows that more buying could win out today and upward pressure is in play.

Wow, look at this. It seems like all stocks are being effected by the downward momentum of the overall market. People are getting scared. That means good opportunity for making money on binary options. Look at today's chart and you can see all the chances for making money on both sides of the market. Normally, if no huge news or earnings call is happening, a stock will fluctuate up and down in a day. This fluctuation represents money making opportunities. If you can get the timing down right, watch your bank account rise.

MSFT - Gap Down (self-explanatory) / MACD / Momentum (All bearish short-term) - Yea...Microsoft dropped a lot and most of it is because of an executive leaving. Look for it to rally up a little before selling off more. Play your binary options accordingly.

This is crazy. All the previous days signals were bearish and look at the stock today. You could have entered a daily high/low put option at any point in the day and made money because the stock closed at its lowest price of the day. You would have made profit on every single trade if you did this at any time of the day today and no matter how many times you did it. It seems like all the negative/bearish events have been correct, but it may be more because the entire market is scared right now. Downward pressure.

NKE - Inverted Hammer - Whooh! another inverted hammer here. Just like Exxon. Watch this stock rise a bit today. I think the market is going to try and make a small recovery on the whole so look to play call and put high/low options on the hour and day. You can make profits.

And NKE just fell off a cliff today on the charts. It showed many good binary option entries that would have easily made you 60% and 80% returns within a few hours. You just need to know when you are at a peak or valley. Patience and timing is all it takes.

More on Trading Digital Options

If you are unaware of how these binary a.k.a. digital options work, it is all or nothing trading. The outcome is either yes or no. If the answer ends up being yes and you predict the correct pricing level to be higher or lower at a given time, you earn a pre-set profit. If the answer is no and you don't predict right, you lose the investment. The key is to bet with $200 - $1000 at a time (most regular traders do that with digital options) because there are no fees and that allows you to have multiple trades going at once.
