Binary Options Strategies for Forex

Can you use your binary option strategy to trade forex? In fact, yes in many cases. The main problem is that a binary options strategy does not offer a way to determine the Profit and Stop levels. Here are a few ways to do this yourself:
  • Fibonacci – You can add a Fibonacci Retracement and to determine your profit level and stop loss level as well! Watch this video to see how to draw the Fibonacci retracement correctly!
  • Support and Resistance Lines – Connect the highest HIGHs and the Lowest LOWs with each other with a horizontal line. The price often changes its direction on these lines. They can also be used to determine the Stop Loss and Take Profit! Trend lines and the Moving Average can be used the same way!
  • Fixed Stop loss and Take Profit – Another option is to define the stop loss and Take Profit on your own. This can work really well if you choose the correct ratio between them!
  • Indicator Based – You can use indicators and exit the trade manually when a specific condition is met. Only use this for your Take Profit, never for your stop loss, as you need to exit the trade yourself. (Or build yourself an EA using the EA Builder Software)
There are many more ways you can use to find a good exit point for both situations!
How to Start Trading at Pocket Option for Beginners
Keep in mind, the ratio between Stop Loss and Take Profit are the most important aspect. They also define the average time a trade takes! Start inside a demo account and try it yourself to see how it is working!
