Binary options – a great introduction to financial trading   no comments

Posted at 4:05 pm in Binary Trading,Uncategorized

As more and more people are starting to get interested in financial trading, I thought I’d write up a post about where to start and what to do when you’re a beginner in the trading game. The first thing you need to understand is that it’s alright to be a complete newbie in the beginning of your journey. You don’t have to be educated or know a lot about what’s going on in the financial world – I know I didn’t. Things like that you will pick up along the way so don’t worry to much about them just yet.

I think the easiest way to get started in financial trading is by starting to trade binary options. Binary options are by far the simplest form of trading, and you can literally learn it in just an hour (the basics, that is). In binary trading you will invest on your prediction of whether an asset like currency, stock, indices or commodity will increase or decrease in value over a short period of time. Unlike other forms of trading however, you don’t buy and sell assets when you want to. You simply invest on the fact that for example EUR will increase in value within the next 30 minutes. When you’ve made your investment you will have to wait half an hour. If the EUR indeed did increase in value in the thirty minutes time you will get your investment back along with a massive return rate of up to 80%. However, if the EUR had decreased in value instead, you would have lost your investment. You can read a more detailed guide on how binary options work on a Spanish trading site called Opciones Binarias!

Another reason I like to recommend binary options to beginners in trading is because it’s not that different to sports betting or roulette. Most people who get in to the online trading market come from the online gambling world which means that binary options will probably be the financial instrument that feels most recognizable to them.  If you think about it, trading binary options is very much like making a bet on a football game, for example. You do you research and and then you predict the outcome of the event and you make you bet based on that prediction. However, I would say that in binary options trading you have a much greater chance of making the correct prediction thanks to the many analytical tools that the brokers provide.

If you are interested in trying binary options, I can only warmly recommend that you try it out! You can find loads of guides, strategies and good binary options brokers at!

Do you need be financial genius to do Forex Trading?   no comments

Posted at 4:07 pm in Online trading,Uncategorized

A lot of people seem to be a bit intimidated when they first hear about forex trading. Forex trading means that you trade currencies on the foreign exchange market, and it has gotten more and more popular every since it was introduced to the public a few years back. Nowadays you can find hundreds of online forex brokers online, as well as strategies and a good forex trading system at websites like, which have lead thousands of people on to the Forex scene. But as I said earlier, a lot of people seem a bit scared when they first hear about it.

If you have never been involved in any sort of financial activity other than paying your rent and bills, it’s totally understandable that you might feel like “trading” is nothing that you could do. But the fact is that forex trading is rather simple, at least the basics of it. Basically, you just aim to buy a currency at a low price and then wait for its value to increase so that you can sell it again and make a profit out of it. Unlike trading on the stock market, for example, forex trading can be done at a pretty small scale, and you still have the opportunity to benefit from it. This way, it’s a relatively low risk form of investment, and an excellent opportunity to get started in trading.

When you first start out in forex trading, it might be hard to understand exactly when to sell and when to buy, and this is of course totally normal in the beginning, just like with anything new we learn. I recommend you start off by reading guides and basic strategies at online trading portals. You can find several of them just by a quick search on the internet. If you are a Spanish speaker, there is a really good site for beginners called Cambio Dividas, which has all the necessary information a beginner needs, as well as several reviews over different forex brokers that are popular on the market today.

Always start off at a small scale when you first get in to trading. As a beginner, you are bound to make a few mistakes (after all, that’s how we learn!), and when those mistakes happen, you don’t want to have all your money on the line. Instead, start off small and work your way up when you have gained some experience after a few months. This will give you a smooth start on your trading career, and by only putting in a small amount of money in the beginning – that you can definitely afford to lose – you will also take some of the pressure away. The more money that you put into your trades, the more pressure you will feel, and the more time and energy you have to invest in analyzing your trades.
