Binary options, digital options or all or nothing options are a relatively new type of investment instrument which is available for traders from mid-2008. Also known as fixed return options (ORF), have gained increasing popularity due to the relative simplicity of its operation, even for those traders with little or no previous experience in the market. These options are classified as exotic options, since although its operation is simple, the calculations behind the pricing are complex.

Besides this, binary options trading is based on a variety of underlying instruments such as currency pairs, stock indices, stocks, commodities and others. In this way the trader can covers several markets with a single financial derivative.

With this type of option the trader does not transacting directly with the underlying instruments, only speculate on the price of these, ie to predict whether it will go up or down. Therefore there are only two possible outcomes (hence the name), is that the price ends above or below the entry price after the expiry of the period of the option.

Thus, if the trader predicted that the price will go up and end of the option period in fact the case (even for 1 cent), it is said that the option ends “In The Money”, which means that operation was winning. When this occurs, the trader gets a fixed gain which depends on the underlying asset and the period of contract and can be from 70% to 85% of the amount invested. For example, if I invest $ 1000 in a binary option and the final success in my prediction and the option ends “In The Money”, my profit will be $ 700 to $ 850.

If the trader is wrong in his prediction of the market, it is said that the option is “Out The Money” and thus lose the amount invested, but depending on the broker he can recover an amount of 10% to 15%.

In most cases, binary options have a duration of 1 hour, however there are also options of 1 day, 1 week and 1 month.
