Frequently asked questions

TRADING

What are the rates displayed in the trading boxes?

The rate Shown is the quoted price for an option of an underlying asset. The rate changes and is updated according to different parameters that The Stock Trader  proprietary algorithms take into account. The rates we present in the trading boxes are those at which The Stock Trader  is willing to sell options, and can differ from the real time market levels.

What time is shown on The Stock Trader ?

All times shown on The Stock Trader  are displayed in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).

What is an Underlying Asset?

Assets can bear any of the tradable products of a financial market. The most common assets traded in financial markets are commodities (e.g. gold, oil), currency pairs (e.g. euro-dollar), stocks (e.g. Apple, Coca Cola, J.P. Morgan) and stock indices (e.g. NASDAQ, Dow Jones, DAX). Investors buy binary options on individual assets and on a fixed expiry time, in order to try to benefit from the price changes which are occurring within the underlying asset

What makes Binary Options trading less risky than Forex?

When you invest in the Forex market, all your money in the trading investment account may be lost. With binary options, your loss will be limited to a specific trade that you decide to invest in. Even if the option is ‘out of the money’ during expiration (which means you are not entitled to payout), MY BRAND trade may sometimes return up to 5% of your invested money.With binary option trading, there is also a possibility of higher returns. Unlike the Forex market, you do not need to rely upon tools to hedge your investment. ‘Stop loss’ conditions and additional leverages are kept at bay. The primary reason for this is that you cannot lose more money than what you initially invest – so no protection is required.

What are the major differences between Binary Options and Traditional Options trading?

The fundamental difference between the traditional and the binary options is that traditional option is, in fact an asset itself. It is, of course, connected to the underlying asset (the stock), but the connection is rather complex, with both assets having an influence on each other. The binary option, on the other hand is just a prediction of a future price for a certain asset. If the prediction is correct – the investor is entitled to a predefined payout, making binary option a fixed-risk and fixed-amount investment. Traditional options do not offer those advantages.
Traditional options do have one benefit – they can be sold any time (remember, they are an asset). With binary options you have to wait for the expiration time. However as the time of expiration is usually only an hour or two away, it is not much of the inconvenience in it.

Binary options expiration time

The binary option’s expiration time is the time at which the system determines whether a prediction was correct or not. At this stage the two asset prices (the “bid” price, i.e. the price at the time of a prediction and the expiry price) of the selected stock, commodity or index are compared. The trader then either earns or loses money, depending on whether his prediction regarding the price change was correct.
Binary options expiration times are much shorter than those of other trading instruments. The outcome of your prediction is known within a short period of time, from 30 minutes to several hours.

What is a Buy More Time?

The Buy more Time feature allow traders to extend the expiration time of an open position by additional 10, 20 or 30 minutes without the need to roll it over to the next expiration period. From 10 minutes before the expiration time until 1 minute before expiration time, traders can decide to extend the open position’s expiration time. The trader can extend the expiration by 10, 20 or 30 minutes at a cost of 15.5% from the investment amount for each additional 10 minutes. An open position’s expiration time can be extended up to 3 times. The cost is deducted from the trader’s balance hence the original trade remains the same.

What is a Social trading?

Social trading is  The Stock Trader ‘s exiting new feature that allow traders to share and copy other traders limit orders and trades. Trades and limit orders executed by traders that Enabled Social Trading are published on the new social trading wall and all other traders can view and copy them.

What is a limit order?

A limit order, also known as “pending order”, is an excellent way for a trader to “order” a trade when the asset’s price reaches the desired level. The trader select the asset and direction but limit the trade to be executed only if the price reaches the level indicated or the order. It’s that simple. If a trader wishes to enter a position but for whatever reason don’t “like” the current market level, simply set the desired level and wait for the system to automatically execute it when the price reaches the desired price

What Are Binary options?

Binary options, also known as Fixed Return Options (FROs) or “digital options”, are financial instruments that feature a prediction regarding the future price of a certain asset. A trader does not actually purchase the asset; he only predicts the market/asset direction. If the asset price at the time of expiration correlates with the trader’s prediction, he is entitled to a predefined payout.
Binary options represent a short term investment and are traded in private markets and over the counter. As the outcome of a prediction is usually determined at the end of the day or even during the day, binary options can provide high returns in a very short time.
Binary options make trading in the financial markets very simple. Choose an asset, make a prediction whether the asset’s price at expiration time will be above or below its current price, enter the invest amount and that’s it! Then wait for the asset’s expiration time to see if your prediction was correct. High payouts are offered when the trader is correct and small amount of the investment can even be returned if the prediction was incorrect.
