Being one of the pioneers of binary options trading, EZTrader realizes the importance of
providing as much information as possible to its traders – whether you’re conducting your
first trade or already a frequent user of our platform. We’ve found that one of the best
ways to clarify many questions is to offer our traders examples of how to conduct trades and
To understand more about how to conduct a binary options trade, we’ll take
a look at placing a trade on the Nike stock.
If you look at the charts on Nike stock, you’ll get a good idea of how its price is trending.
You can also research some of the financial news available on Nike to see if there is
generally a positive or negative sentiment in the marketplace for the company.
There are a range of resources available for you on EZTrader, including comprehensive
guides and articles, weekly market reviews and articles on advanced trading techniques.
From these resources, let’s say you found out that Nike was about to release its quarterly
earnings figures in the next few days and you believe that this may have an impact on the
price of Nike stock.
These tools will help you develop a position on whether you think the price will rise or
fall by the listed expiry time. If you believe the price will rise upon expiration,
you should execute a call option on Nike stock. If you think that its value will fall
upon expiration, you’ll want to place a put option. This decision will determine if
you’re successful in executing the trade or not.
After you’ve executed your trade, it is a matter of waiting for the expiry time to
arrive to find out the outcome. When trading binary options, there are three outcomes
that can occur – In the money, Out of the money or At the money. For example, if you
placed a trade on Nike stock at a strike price of $55.02 and it rises above this price
upon expiration, you would be in the money. This means that you could experience a
profit of up to 95%. Alternatively, if the value of Nike stock falls below $55.02
you would be out of the money. In this instance, EZTrader will still refund you
with a certain percentage of the amount traded, thus enabling you to keep on trading.
Finally, if the value of Nike’s stock stays static at $55.02 upon expiration your
trade would expire at the money. In this scenario, your trade would again be considered
unsuccessful but you will still get some of the money you traded back compliments of EZTrader.
Trading on a stock such as Nike offers a great example of how simple the process of
trading binary options is. With a wide range of assets to choose from, Nike is only
one of the many options that can be traded on EZTrader using the same simple steps
