Step 2

Investment Amount

The goal is to win more trades than you lose. Accept that no system is perfect and its normal to lose some positions you open.

Here is my strict rules of investment size on each trade – each position should not represent more than 5% of your account balance.

$200 $10
$500 $25
$1000 $50
$5000 $250

Step 3

register a broker account

Create an account via any of the brokers listed on my site. There are several to choose from however I strongly recommend Banc De Binary.

Create an account at these recommended brokers
Broker  Minimum Deposit Join
banc de binary Banc De Binary $250 Join Review
HighLow HighLow $10 Join Review
CherryTrade CherryTrade $250 Join Review

I personally have over 5 registered accounts which covers all the available assets especially if one asset is not available you can access it via another broker.

Having multiple binary option brokers is a must for serious traders.

About Binary Options Trading

Binary options, also referred to as "digital" or "all-or-nothing" options, provide the investor with either a fixed payout if the criteria of the option are met or nothing at all. The options are therefore binary in nature because there are only two possible outcomes.

Binary options are defined in terms of a strike price (payout threshold), a maturity date, and an underlying reference unit, commodity, instrument or security price (the underlying). Binaries are sold in exchange for an up front premium payment and both calls and puts are available.

Types of binary options

The two main types are the cash-or-nothing binary option and the asset-or-nothing binary option. The cash-or-nothing binary option pays a fixed amount of cash if the option expires in-the-money while the asset-or-nothing pays the value of the underlying security.

The three other most often used types of binary options: one-touch, no-touch, and double-one-touch/double-no-touch work in a different way.

In a one-touch option, the contract ends as soon as the asset prices reaches a predetermined level. In this case, an investor has to decide whether or not the asset price will ever reach that level during the duration of the contract, not whether or not it will actually finish at that level.

A no-touch binary option is the inverse of the one-touch binary option. Rather than the contract ending if the asset price reaches a certain level, the contract is paid out if it expires without that certain level ever having been reached.

In the double-one-touch and double-no-touch binary options, instead of there being just one predetermined level, there are two. In the case of a double-one-touch binary option the asset price must touch on both of those values for the contract to pay out. In the case of a double-no-touch binary option, the asset price must avoid touching either of those levels to pay out.

Where Binary Options are used

Binaries are widely used where the underlying instrument is a commodity, currency, rate, event, or index. The Option buyer can achieve a significant payout based on a small move in a financial instrument as opposed to standard options where the market usually has to shift markedly for there to be a payout.

A binary option is usually priced at the current market and a potential return based on the short-term movement of the financial markets. Options traders have to assess the strike price, the underlying price of the financial instrument and the implied volatility of the underlying financial instrument and decide if there is value in the call or put that they are intending to purchase.

Short-term binary options eliminate most of the issues related to standard options with the only basis for a successful trade being whether the option is above or below your price after a specific expiry time.

    Hi Chris,

    I posted a comment regarding my serious problems with GT Options, a broker I signed up to and deposited some money back in Aug 2015. I have had nothing but problems with this broker. It took them 2 weeks before I got a so-called adviser. He then told over a phone call what to do with the GT Options platform but would not answer any of my queries regarding the platform (e.g. hows and whys). Since then, I have left nuemrous phone calls to him and the GT Support team (who are a joke) – neither have returned my calls or answered my emails for help…and this is after 3 weeks of repeatedly contacting them! Can you advise me on what to do as I am getting angry and frustrated?

  • Michael Omosomwan 02/09/2015 at 07:44

    Hi Chris,
    Most binary companies I did business with never paid back my funding and my profits when I tried to withdraw. Which one will recommend?


    • Hi Michael,

      Did you accept a bonus. I recommend all brokers here. Please read all the T&C before joining a broker.


      • Hi all, (including Chris of course) just a note re brokers, I took HILOW, firstly they are ASIC registered, secondly, they were on Chris’s “recommend” list, AND they had unlimited “guest” accounts where you can log in to the Demo account as often as you like and every time there is a new $10,000 to “play” with and use it to gets heaps of experience and familiarise yourself with Binary trading with “NO RISK”. I joined HILOW at the beginning of August this year, enjoyed no fee Visa deposits from my debit card (instant) and opened a NAB account for the trading, and all withdrawals made before 2pm DO ACTUALLY appear in my NAB account pretty much 24 hours or less later . . . . and no charges. Extremely honorable and their ASIC accreditation game me heaps of assurance, and of course, they take it very seriously, and their bonus system works flawlessly

        A special thankyou to Chris for all of your honesty and very well put together training.

        In answer to another question “how to the brokers make money?” easy, they get paid by someone like Forex for all the trades they send their way, so they win, regardless of whether YOU end up in the money or not (Chris, you can correct me if I’m wrong) but this is why as soon as the news is out there that you are interested in binary trading, you will get constantly bombarded from all over, by phone and email trying to sell “their” service.

    Can someone please contact me on 0731364770. I would like to know what is going on in my account. Thank you

  • I’ve signed up for CherryTrade and the privatesignalsgroup using my email. I’m looking forward to RAVI’s signals with the 80 to 100% win rate. After seeing your review of IQoption i’d like an account with them as well. Since I’m currently a USA resident, (but hopefully, very shortly a UK resident of Scotland), I’m exploring Offshore legal options with that’s run by Arturo Lopez, a well known MQL4/MQL5 coder and trader. His indicator and EA site is Do you recommend his service or do you have other recommendations?

    PS: See reggytrades on twitter for many 100% winning trading sessions, many with before and after screenshots. Since I have time constraints at the moment, I’m automating entry alerts on SierraCharts, and expect to move up my results several orders of magnitude. Maybe I’ll qualify as a signal provider?

    Thanks for doing a great job.
