Simple But Effective 60 Second Binary Options Strategy

A Simple But Effective 60-
Second Binary Options Trading Strategy

BinaryMate Accepting USA Clients and Customers With a Great PlatformIn the past we have often made reference to trading our 60 second options contracts in sets of three, which we refer to as a “series”. We have found this to be a simple but effective 60 second binary options strategy which can help you to become a more profitable and successful trader of these contracts. In our experience this has shown itself to be the best way to trade 60 second binary options.

First things first though. This concept should be one part of your overall 60 second binary options trading strategy. It should not be exclusively used by itself, and instead should be incorporated into all your 60-second trades and larger, overall trading strategy. It will be much more effective when used as part of a broader strategy. By using this very simple and easy to carry out strategy, you will almost certainly become a more profitable 60-second options trader. How to trade 60 second binary options is probably one of the most often asked questions which we receive so it was time to get this down in writing.

This is an effective 60 second options strategy — despite its simplicity — because by trading these contracts in sets of three, purchased roughly 10-20 seconds apart, you will “dampen down” the inherently volatile and unpredictable nature of such short-dated contracts. It acts as an averaging mechanism that dampens some of that random “noise” which can have such a large effect on 60-second contracts. Certainly nothing revolutionary here. Nevertheless, it is effective and we do definitely recommend its use as part of your overall 60 second binary options strategy.

Our Simple Yet Effective 60-Second Binary Options Trading Strategy

  1. Should be used as part of your overall 60-second trading strategy.
  2. Each “series” trade will consist of three (3) identical contracts, purchased 10-25 seconds apart.
  3. Each contract in the series should be purchased for the same amount.
  4. Volatility determines your purchase intervals. As volatility rises, so too should your spacing intervals.
  5. The default spacing is 10 seconds and should be used the majority of the time.
  6. When volatility is particularly high (for your chosen asset, not across the board) you should lengthen your intervals to between 15-25 seconds.
  7. Your intervals should never exceed 30 seconds, as this will allow your 1st contract to expire before your 3rd is even purchased.
  8. The exact spacing is not critical so long as the above guidelines are strictly followed. As you practice with this method you will get a feel for the spacing under various market conditions and get better at it.
  9. That’s it!

As we’ve said a few times now, simple but effective. Surprisingly effective. It is, of course, no magic bullet and will not by itself make you rich trading 60-second options. But we have used this method as part of our own 60-second options strategy for over a year now (though not 100% of the time), and have no plans to stop using it any time soon. It has measurably improved our profitability in this contract type and we are confident that it can do the same for you. Give it a try to see for yourself. We think you’ll be glad that you did. The are now many brokers offering 60-Second, “Turbo”, and ” Short-Term” binary options contracts. We have, however, put together a short little list of OUR Choices for 2016 for the top binary options brokers offering 60-second binary option trading. Including “Turbo”, “Hyper”, etc. Type contracts

And as always, we wish you the best of luck in all your trading activities!

  1. Addendum to my previous comment about edge alignment. This does not appear to be happening all of the time. On reload of this page after posting my other comment, instead of the info being almost to the edge of the screen as before, it has now moved in, relative to the entire page width about 10-15% away from the problem edge.

  2. Site recommendation: The tag list/block of contact points boundary or edge, when at the main info part of the page, covers over the left edge of the info. Scrolling down further, because the replies are indented more, this is not an issue, but it is very annoying on the top because you need to scroll down so the main part info is above that icon block.

  3. 1) We don’t advise letting your broker trade for you. They have no vested interest–they get no fees for profitable trading–in your account making money. They only care they it’s an active account making lots of trades–where they make their real money…trade volume. This can lead to a conflict of interest as regards your account being consistently profitable.

    2) You’re on the right track with your self-teaching, practicing with small, affordable amounts, more reading and study…then back to practive what you’ve learned in your reading/studying. Rinse and repeat. Do that, have more than a few dozen brain cells, and the money to play around with, and you WILL eventually become a consistently profitable trader
    Good luck!

  4. I signed up with a London broker and they have made more bad trades than good and I’ve lost a lot of money. While I wait for them to call a trade, I’ve been reading material from books, on line, blogs, websites, Youtube, etc. to teach myself. It’s been 4 months and I know a lot more than I did and am committed to learning this. I have been placing $5 dollar trades daily and the timing often seems to be the issue. I not only want to recoup the losses from my broker, but make a steady income. I’ve got my savings tied up with these folks–it’s pathetic I know. Can anyone out there direct me to a mentoring platform or even an effective video or 2 that might help me reverse my losses? I’ve put enough in the bankers pockets at this point! Thank you.

  5. Why most of you keep losing to your broker accounts is because you don’t make use of any strategy in trading binary. No broker account would want you to make profit while they are losing…

    ADMIN EDIT: ALL REPUTABLE BROKERS insure all trades specifically so that you are NOT “betting” against the “house”. This is how most all brokerages work and make their money. On trade volume…not wheather you win or lose…END ADMIN EDIT.

    I have been trading for over two years now,and I have never been happier in my entire life. It can be done but like anything worthwhile…it DOES take some effort and learning skills. Good luck!

  6. Hello, Is anyone serious about making money from binary/forex trading or recovering losses? I have been trading for the past 4 years and i did not really understand the reason why traders have a lot of challenges and lose a lot. Until now, i now know the way trade is being done. Guess what folks? There was NO magic bullet/system that made me profitable. Sorry to burst your “easy money now!” mentality…but no such easy money exists :-< What do you need to do to become a profitable trader like myself? It's not easy. Remember school? Yes? Well, it's time to go back for some of the most important lessons of your life!Translation: You need to read, study, demo practice if possible, then--or if no demo possible--we move on to basically the minimum amounts allowed by the broker for our trades. Rinse and repeat. You have to just keep reading the works of those who have become profitable before you--Without making outrageous claims!!!--practicing what these profitable traders are preaching. It's just a "simple" cycle you just have to have enough luck, money, or both to survive through. The way to binary options trading profitability is simply: read, practice, real...read more, more practice...step up the real-money trades so you have more "at risk" and will start to train your brain to think a bit differently. If you stick to this formula, and you are not a foolish or stupid person, you CAN eventually become a consistently profitable binary option trader, regardless of the broker you trade with. Here's a few good ones though: "Top US-Friendly and Global Binary Options Trading Brokers".Best of luck to all our visiting trader, etc. I know that a finpari client friend of mine just made like $15,000 on the days trades. Butthead cost me -$2,2000 cuz I referred him so they gave me "profit sharing", which sounded good...but has now left me actually in-debt -$2,200 without so much as making a single trade! That's some harsh "punishment" to come back from when all we do is send them potential traders. I am, however, very happy for the good trader who cleaned Finpari’s clock out of like $15,000+… so far! Impressive! Congratz to you for your quick and professional profits!

  7. When i first started this binary i lost lots of money ….now i have recovered almost all the money …now i trade from home very happy. No magic bullet… just lots of reading on sites like this one, lots of practice, then lots more reading…more practice, read, practice…. etc., etc.
    It took me a little bit but I was pretty determined…and eventually I DID actually become a consistently profitable binary options trader! And I’m loving it now Jason. Mail me.

  8. Why most of you keep losing to your broker accounts is because you don’t make use of any strategy in trading binary. No broker account would want you to make profit while they are losing.I have been trading for over two years now,and I have never been happier in my entire life.In binary/forex trading I have been able to find an amazing way to make sure I always have “play” money to do whatever I want/feel like doing, when I feel like doing it!

  9. You are in binary options trading to make money for yourself and not to trade for the sake of it. What you should do is to minimize the risk of making some rash trades which can put you out of business in a flash. Make frequent withdrawals to pay yourself for your efforts. One good way to do this is to make withdrawals for all money that comes above your deposit and save it. This way, you will find out if binary options trading works for you or not.

  10. You are wise to point out that this technique is meant only as an addition to an overall strategy, but would you not stress that, if used BEFORE a working strategy has been achieved, it can simply increase the losses of a bad/undeveloped/lack of strategy?
    I’ve just begun learning and experimenting with binary and turbo binary trading, starting with a “sure fire” auto-bot that lost money and a broker who swore they had nothing to do with that and talked me into coming back with manual trades, training, and initial fail-safe trading. Only today did I learn about the drawbacks that can come with “bonuses,” but how else is a guy with little money going to learn (considering practice means learning what not to do by experience, which means losing money). I still haven’t gotten to where I have had regular success, but here’s my advice for beginners based on what I’ve wished I’d done after looking back… Oh, step Zero is: Consider not getting into trading in the first place!
    1. PRAY
    2. Be calm, and stay calm.
    3. Be Content with modest success, don’t be greedy. Quit for awhile when you get ahead (2)
    4. Look through the charts for an asset showing a Strong, Steady, Regular Trend with a slope of 20 degrees or more and large candlesticks that stay the same color for several in a row.
    4a) Check the trend(s) on different time scales, with the most weight on the time you’re trading and then the next one or two longer scales.
    4b) Just don’t try to trade if the trend is flattening out, the candlesticks are getting small, the wicks are getting long, the colors are alternating irregularly, or the candlesticks are jumping up and down. Just say NO to speculative speculating!
    4c) Checking the larger trends tells you which point of the waves (REGULAR waves) to place the trade: If the overall trend is up, place a CALL when a trough starts to rise. If the asset has been generally going down, jump in with a PUT as a crest is about done.
    5. Learn the technical aspects of the platform your broker provides, avoid mistakes in practice (i.e. practice, practice, practice with a free demo and/or the smallest trades you can make)
    5a) Learn how to use RSI, Bollinger Bands, support and resistance levels (note that previous crests and troughs can act as support and resistance levels, but shifted if the trend is good). Keep in mind all of the technical analysis is WORTHLESS in a flat or choppy market.
    6. Note that the direction of the market can seem to change JUST when you place your trade, or JUST when before the expiry point, as if it is watching and waiting to GET YOU personally.
    7. Think longingly of step Zero…

  11. If you are asking whether this strategy should be used on CALL options ONLY? Or PUT options ONLY?…Then the answer is it doesn’t matter. It depends heavily on the overall current MACROeconomic scene/situation. In layman’s terms: This strategy should usually be used in conjunction with plays that are going along WITH the trend. It is not recommended that beginners trade against the overall prevailing market conditions using this strategy. So, if the market has been in an upward/downward trend for the past days, weeks, and months, you usually don’t want to bet against that overall market picture. Instead try to find trades that work WITH the current MACRO (big picture) trend.

    After all, there’s really no sense in fighting the big boys, the market will go where they go, regardless of the buying/selling whims of retail traders, or their/our opinions on where the market SHOULD go/be. Trade the head not the heart. Hmmm, did I leave any overused cliches out? Nope, got ’em all in there, ha. Anyway that’s my advice on that matter regarding this strategy. Although in full disclosure I don’t trade 60-second or “turbo” options that frequently anymore. When I step outside the boundaries of “regular” Above/Below I find the newer “Ladder Options” to be much more interesting, flexible, and profitable. So that is where our focus has been lately. You can expect a great (we think) strategy article related to Ladder Options in the near future. It’s a fairly simple strategy yet surprisingly effective. At least for us it has been very profitable in the time we’ve been using/testing it. So we look forward to sharing that with our readers as soon as possible.

  12. hello Jason thanks for your post is valuable information , especially for me I’m starting , you could upload a video showing how to apply it?

  13. First of all, I like to thank you for being very open and clear as well as honest in your post as well as your replies.
    I just started BO (Forex) and just was wondering what is the best times to trade, and times to avoid.
    P.S. I live in UK

  14. We have found this to be a simple but effective 60 second binary options strategy which can help you to become a more profitable and successful trader of these contracts. In our experience this has shown itself to be the best way to trade 60 second binary options.

  15. Hello Joel,
    There is no magic formula for “recouping” your losses in my strategy. Or any other legitimate strategy for that matter. You recoup your losses by increasing your win rate while decreasing your loss rate. Couldn’t sound simpler right? Too bad it isn’t actually that simple, or anywhere near it. Secondly, my “strategy,” as is clearly stated in several places, is not a “complete” or “stand-alone” strategy. It is, rather, meant to be used IN/AS A PART OF your actual trading strategy. This isn’t a trading strategy, it is just a “smoothing” or “noise cancellation” strategy meant to compliment your full strategy, as well as make it a more profitable strategy overall.
    Considering the questions I get on this similar to yours or along the same meaning, I now believe that I probably didn’t make things clear enough in that post. But it is what it is at this point.
    Thanks for stopping by! And best of luck to you in all your trading activities!
    J.M.

  16. I am a new trader priamarily doing day trades in the binary option market. I have been using signals from different suppliers (breaking even). I have been doing research on 60 second trading. I have tried the 5 point system (5-10-25-100-500) the one were you keep increasing your trade amounts until you win the trade. With your system how do you recoup losses?

    Joel

  17. Thank you for the kind words Thomas, they are appreciated! What I can’t do for you is guide you all the way along your path to consistent profitability–bummer, I know. But I simply don’t have the time for that kind of one-on-one investment. Okay that’s the bad news. The better news is that I would be glad to answer, at any time, any specific question(s) you might have about the field or how best to play in it. I will always find time to respond to my visitors or regular readers comments and emails with questions, or whatever else they want or need to address.
    Best of luck to you in your trading activities no matter what though!

  18. Hi Andy,

    I’m trading short terms for about 2 months now and i think you know what you’re doing. Therefore I’m also asking you, as ganga****44@gmail.com did, to send me your wisdom. I’d really appreciate it. – I’m trying to get every information i can get and i think your information is important.

    Best regards Thomas B.

  19. I would avoid Andy’s “Strategy” if I were you my friend. I had to erase/edit out a bit of spammy binary options “system” scam type websites from his comment.
    You will only be given access to his “strategy” (which is a sham in itself) if you open an account and deposit money at one of his “Partner” brokers (or in some rarer cases just plain pay for the software/system).
    If you want to make money, and more importantly than that even, at least maintain your account balance, then you should definitely stay FAR AWAY from his type of scam operations.
    (You can read a bit more about how most of them work in one of our very own articles posted here somewhat recently @ http://usbinaryoptionsinfo.com/profit-in-60-seconds-review/ – Which shows how many, or even most of these scams works. Though to be fair this doesn’t even begin to cover ALL the terribly inventive scams these jerkoffs come up with on a daily basis. It is a good place to start though and should give you an idea of why to avoid, or at least be very cautious when dealing with people like “Andy,” and his like. Unfortunately, they abound in numbers, and make a TON of money doing it. That means that it is entirely up to the individual to protect themselves.
    Good luck in future man! With this aspect, and with all your various trading activities!
    Remember…Trade Smart. Trade Your Strengths, and Be Lucky!!!

  20. Well Chris, that is a difficult question, requiring a fairly long and detailed answer, one which needs to be well though out and thoroughly researched before being answered with any reasonable accuracy and/or honesty. And that makes it definitely beyond the scope of a simple comment response. I’m also not a fan of “endorsing” any product or service which I or my staff have not used ourselves.

    You might not like the advice I would give most people on this subject though. And that advice is to pay no attention to any of the “Make Money In Minutes!” or “Get Rich in Seconds” type strategies and programs or their like. The best 60-second strategy of them all?…well…
    The best 60-Second binary options strategy there is, is the one which you have developed yourself using a combination of “stealing” from the work others have done before you, lots of reading up on the subject, and most importantly of all…studying and knowing the specific markets you choose to trade in. Choose just a few assets to mainly concentrate on, learn how the markets for those assets have behaved historically, seasonally, in similar financial/economic situations, etc.

    You know this “last” and critically important part that is coming next…practice!…lots and lots of practice. And this practice should be liberally interspersed throughout the entire learning and strategy development process that we briefly outlined above. So, it’s more like: read, practice, research, practice, read someone different, practice, find a market you think you may want to concentrate in? Great, time for some practice then…
    I do believe that you probably get the general idea by now haha.

    I hope this helps at least a little, and I am sorry that I cannot be more detailed/specific in answering your question of “what the most effective way to earn profits” in a responsible manner, or give the subject the attention it rightly deserves (which would–and will–require its very own full-length post. Hopefully I can get that post researched, written, and published before the end of summer at the very least. Unfortunately, we’ve got “a lot on the table” at the moment, and not nearly enough good help to get it all done in any kind of reasonable time frame…leaving us inexcusably far behind in nearly every area of our modest little website in its tiny corner of the internet.

  22. Hi Andy,

    Could you please share your strategy, that could help in my trading. Please send me your strategy to ganga****44@gmail.com that would be a great help.

    Thanks!!

    (I Edited your comment to exclude the email address. Putting that where all the bots and various email spammers can easily get it is a bad idea. And I don’t need it posted publicly because it shows it Admin privately anyway.)

  23. The 60 second binary options are great way to make money speculating, and in such a short period of time, because you can get returns of 70-80% in 30-120 seconds. For my first 2 weeks trading just with the 60-second binary options I made a bit over $2,200 in profit. Not too shabby I’d say! I have my own method to my madness that I use and I see that you recommend using your strategy not as a “stand alone” strategy but to use it with my own strategy. It’s interesting but I can see how this simple idea could help improve on my already pretty good numbers. I’ll be giving it a shot anyway.
    Thanks!!!

  24. Well, before I quit my job to try and make a modest but less stressful income by building blogs/websites dedicated to subjects I’m knowledgeable in; such as finance, investment, and pure speculation plays (binary options trading in mostly, but not always, firmly in the pure speculation category) — I was actually a Commodities analysts for Boeing, in my home state of Washington. It’s amazing how much their bottom line depends on things like the current price of palladium, or projecting the price of steel for 6 months in advance so they can purchase options contracts based on those estimates of mine.
    So that’s basically your answer my friend, I know the markets I speculate in rather well, and while very short-term movements like 60-second options are close to impossible to accurately predict over such a short time frame, it can be doe over a slightly longer time frame…and then use my “averaging” strategy (which is all it really is) to smooth out some of those short term bumps so that my analysis — if correct — actually has a decent chance of coming through the noise that exists in such short time frames.

    As I say in the article this is not meant as a “stand alone” strategy. But rather a strategy that should be used as part of your own “bigger picture” strategy, somewhat like I use it as described above in my Commodities trading (which I hope to thoroughly edit when I have some time to greatly improve and clarify it…it has become a much more widely read article than I anticipated when i wrote it, and it deserves more attention now with the traffic it gets).

    It sounds to me like you are someone who has more brain cells than fingers, which is less common than one would hope, so I think that with some more reading, practice, reading, practice, etc….that you will eventually do just fine for yourself.

    I will, however, at this very end, just in case you have even read this far, give you the one relevant tip I can regarding your question. The short and terribly incomplete answer would be: Trend. Choosing the time frame to check the tend against can be the tricky part but that is something that comes fairly quickly with practice. I generally use 2 and 4 hour frames to check against to see if they conflict..if they do…it’s on to checking a different asset. But if the trends match (i.e. downtrending consistently over that time, or, of course, the opposite, uptrending over that time. With very very short-term bets like this, the trend really is your friend. Trying to fight the trend in a 30, 60, or 120 second time period is seriously NOT recommended (though if you looked through all my trading journals, you’d find me doing it against my own advice on a few rare occasions).

    Well, this darn message had gone on long enough to be a full post on its own practically! I think we had best sign off and get to work.
    Regards man,
    Jason

  25. This worked off and on for me..but I have ONE question….how do you know which direction to chose for the series……i.e. puts or calls ?

    Thanks

  26. I would actually love to do that. This post has unexpectedly become of of our most visited and read posts/pages and I have wanted to make some improvements to it to make it worthy of such attention. But, sadly, I’m a one-man show here and I can only do one thing at a time. And unfortunately, revising that popular post, and even adding a nice video tutorial to better illustrate what it is all about is just not in the cards at the moment 🙁

    It is near the top of my list when I get a chance to get back to optimizing my website and posts/pages, not to mention publishing new content regularly. However, we are just recovering from a google penalty tht wiped us off the map for awhile thanks to a black hat attack on us that inserted malicious code into our pages and tripped google’s malware protection = instant removal from the big G’s index. Problem all fixed now but I still have an overwhelming amount of work to do to regain the lost traffic, and lost trust that occurred from that attack. And that, unfortunately, has to be our top priority until it is 100% corrected.
    Thank you for your contact and your interest in improving our content, we LOVE reader feedback and suggestions. I’m just sorry that we cannot fulfill your request in a timely manner as we would like. Best of luck to you in your trading!
    Regards,
    Jason

  27. Can you make a video of this? I’m very interested. Feel free to message me. PLEASE GUYS NO SPAMS.
