Short Selling Ban In Europe

Both Spanish and Italian markets have banned short selling. If you trade in these markets its imperative to have some way to be able to hedge or flat out go short if the market is going to drop. Binary options as you know is one way to play the downside of the markets or individual stocks, indexes, commodities, or forex. Its easy to pick almost any asset and buy puts. If the trend is going to enter strong down here in the summer period then binary options are a good choice for protection where you currently have no other way to hedge your trades. One broker that is great for shorting a large amount of stocks is AnyOption because they have a very large number of stock assets. Facebook, Google, Amazon, GE, and so many more are available to go short or long.

It Might Be Good Friday, but The Market Might Turn Bad

The market was closed for good Friday, but get ready for the market to be turning bad. I think we are headed for a major pullback starting next week. The market and many stocks are severely overbought.

There will be a summer rally however maybe in July, followed by late summer selloff.

The Nasdaq in particular is extremely overbought and put in a reversal candlestick.

For next week I would be considering the low and lower range binary options in AAPL, EUR/USD, as well as the Aussie Dollar as the commodities tend to get spanked when the markets pull back.

Can also look at the Nasdaq on the lower side, but highly correlated Nasdaq stocks as well I can see making easy money on.

If what I suspect is going to happen, I expect to be making easy money online as the moves will likely break some levels and hang there.

Mass Downgrade For Europe

This week the whole Eurozone might be downgraded by SP. The EURO could move large on this news as the markets are oversold as is. The timing can't be perfect.

Looking For A Lower Euro

With some of the Greece headlines settling down, all the focus is now leaning towards Italy and Spain.

Italian cds rates are at new highs and they are saying something. I think the Euro is heading lower and am positioning my trades that way.

I've been using 24option lately and if you need a good binary options broker, definitely recommend them.

After eXceptional Volatility

After exceptional volatility the past 2 weeks, one could look at today's trading and only play boundaries.

Bollinger Bands are expanding so this means two things. One a big reversion to the mean is coming, or we are going into a range exapnsion period. Be careful to reassess your binary options strategy everyday adjusting to what way the market is trading everyday. Sounds simple, but this concept is not and is difficult to actually execute. People get caught in their market bias.

S&P 500 Has Raced Higher In October

Since October 5th 2011 the stock market has gone bonkers to the upside. Which means for binary option traders, playing the hourly has been excellent win IF you have been playing the long touch side.

On October 5th the SPX moved 1% from 10:30 to close.
On October 6th it moved 2% from morning to close
On October 7th only if you caught the bottom at 1pm eastern time would you have made a your 85% binary options win.

October 10th was a big day.

Had you decided to play the daily binary option at the close on the 7th you would have woken up with a 85% gain in the bag as the market gapped way over your touch line.

October 11th was a range day and a trader had to anticipate one of these was coming.

October 12th had a big gap up. Hourlies made money.

October 13th was the worst of the month so far with a big gap down that rallied halfway back at the close.

October 14th was a huge day to the upside and had you played the daily at the close on the 13th you woke up with gains and if you played the hourly you would have had wins all day as the market marched higher.
