Friday AAPL Options: $10 to $295: Insane Profits: My Last Chance

Well hit the option lotto today. I just wish I had more money when I did it. Trading balance was down to $22 bucks and I had just enough money to buy the 532.5 puts in AAPL with an expiry today. These weekly options are pretty insane.

On a Binary Options Streak 8 Wins In a Row

Well ever since I thought of using this new hourly strategy, I have won 8 binary option trades in a row. They are all between 30 minutes and 1 hour. The main idea is to use a few moving averages, not the 3ema either, and generate good trade bias for the time frame. To give you a little idea of how good it can be to win 8 binary trades in a row, if you were to risk 100% of your balance on each trade, it would take $25 all the way up to $2,000 or if you just did fixed $100 trades it would be about $640 in net profit. This series was done in the course of 3 days.

Scalping Around Core Position...With Binary Options (Best Hourly Strategy)

This is a technique commonly used by regular option/stock/spot forex traders that helps them lower their cost basis on a core position. All core position means is a longer term trade that has a clear bias (up, down, sideways) and is usually more money. Well, this strategy can be used with binary options trading as I have just found out. There has to be a few modifications done, but it worked out well in this test.

A Technical Look at Forex Majors This Week to Help Traders

What is going on. It's a beautiful Sunday May 25, 2014 and the forex markets are going to open up in about 5 and a half hours so here is a little bit of technical analysis in order to help traders get a bias in order to make trading decisions for the week. The hardest thing to do in trading is figure out where you are within a given chart. It's easy as pie to do when you look back on the historical pricing, but trying to do it as it's happening proves to be difficult. Here is my perspective on the charts:

Checking Out the CLMForex Web Trader for Binary Options

It's a cold Friday afternoon and I am just taking a look at the web trader that CLMForex has for non-U.S. binary traders. It's much nicer than the system they built for BINS on MT4 that I looked at a few weeks back. It's user friendly. The charts are flexible and allow for any kind of technical analysis you want as well as time frames etc...You have ultimate freedom on this platform that you can't get with any other binary options broker out there.

FOMC Minutes Today: May 21, 2014 - Will it Be Shocking to Markets?

The market is going completely sideways in this range, but maybe today the FOMC minutes (2PM EST) will trigger some kind of volatility to the downside. So far for 2014 we have gone down, back up to make new all-time highs, and then tapered back downward as of late. The pattern feels like it wants the equity market to go find a good support level.

Spinning Top Chart Pattern Setup for Options Traders (Pattern Active May 20, 2014)

It's May 20, 2014 and we are in after-hours. A pretty good chart pattern indication has come up in the stock AAPL. If you look on the 1day bars, it has had 2 strong days of buying after bottoming out last Friday at the 585 mark. Now right back up at 604 it is on pace to reverse on the 3 day surge and go lower. It could be a very good opportunity to get into some put options that expire on Friday.

Using Trading Engagement to Make Profit in Binary Options

This morning I am looking at a way to help binary option traders make a profit. The key in today's lesson or trading demonstration is getting engaged to the price action (getting a feel for it) and then placing your strong trade. The idea is to make sure your strong risk trade is still a small % of the trade balance. Your mindset needs to be small, slow, and steady with daily activity.

Passive Income Takes the Hardest/Smartest/Longest Work

Let's talk a little about passive income. This is generally thought of by the general business person as the money you earn while you sleep. In my opinion, the term 'passive income' is the most deceiving term in the English language. I'll tell you why.

Directional Trading Plays Today: Binaries/Spot Forex

Well the market has been open for about an hour and 15 minutes and so far U.S. indices and stocks have opened lower. Specifically Apple is down $5 and it needs to come down another $10 for my personal position. To focus in on forex trades, the EUR/USD and USD/JPY are looking decent for some directional plays.

Well, Back On Some Binaries and Wish I Was Non-U.S.

I am continuing to test out more short term time frames as well as end of day binary option trading strategies. So far this morning I found a nice spot for support on the EUR/USD to do a 10min high/low call that went ITM as you will see in the video below. Also, I did a few demo trades on something I can do from the U.S. which is spot forex. Ended up with one account having a $7,000 profit and the other was a $1,850 profit. This might be the next type of trading I look at as it seems to be going well so far.

Binary Options on MT4 Using New Firm (Core Liquidity Markets)

Well what is going on. I have just found a new platform that is great for anything you want to do regarding forex markets. It's the only place I know of where you have a built in binary options system within a spot forex setup. It allows you to trade forex spot, CFDs, metals, and binary options. It's a little tough to get used to, but it's the best thing out there that is regulated and has all the various high-leverage options people like.

Alright...Staying Strong with the 10% Per Day

Well we have more selling going on. The sad thing is if I held my 585 puts until mid morning, they went all the way up to 4.60/contract. I owned 5 at 0.82 so that is roughly $2,000 of profit in one day that I missed. The good thing is that my trade predictions are right and since Apple has one of the most liquid option markets out there, it is the best place to trade with the way I am doing it.

How To Trade Options? Stay Small

What is going on. I just closed out my 585 aapl weekly put options this afternoon as the stock finally took a dive after breaking below a few trend lines around 1PM est. It was not just this stock though, everything has crashed. So here is the most important thing you have to keep in mind if you are trading options like this on equities:

On the Morning Market Crash - Saved My Life

Well it has been a rough one lately, but this morning has boosted the hope of my trading as my cash had started running down very low. I was in the 575 aaple puts on Monday morning and today, Wednesday morning, it seems Yellen has sent the entire market into a mini crash here. It was very difficult to hold onto for the two days, but thankfully it worked out. I have also thought of a new risk management strategy.

Binary Options: How to Use Price Action Live

To get myself back in gear to start trading live through signalpush's trade copier, I will be doing some test binary option trades by using my top binary options broker just to get a feel for the markets here on Sunday night. Also, there is a client that wants to trade on Nadex so I am trying to give them the best advice possible in order to help them profit and they are compensating me out of the profit they make. This should be fun and everyone can make money.

Non-farm Payroll has EUR/USD Down and U.S. Markets Likely Sideways

Well it's a jobs Friday and the non-farm payroll looked strong adding 230,000 jobs and the unemployment rate at 6.3%. Also, the average earnings/wages were unchanged. This has sent the EUR/USD, AUD/USD, and GBP/USD all down (usd bidding up) and the USD/JPY flying higher. As far as its effects that it could have on trading equity options today, we are looking more sideways than anything.

Using Price Action - Live Options Trading

Alright, I used the price action in AAPL as well as some smaller position engagement to pound out some great profits this morning. It's about time as the last few weeks have been rough. Here is a really good live demonstration of the way a natural market works and how to profit from it. It's basically a head and shoulders pattern.
