Fx Options or Digital Options have the unique property of having only one of two values. For example , “yes” or “no”, “black” or “white” or “profit” or “loss”. We offer Fx Options on many underlying assets. An asset is the foundation of your option. It can be an index, a commodity, a currency or a stock. You can read more about these in our other lessons.
“Did you know that car insurance is a kind of Fx-Option? If you have an accident the insurance company will pay for the damage, if you don’t crash it won’t. The financial market is very similar: , you will generate profit by making good judgments, otherwise you won’t.”
In our “60 Seconds“ section you will find Fx Options with terms that are as short as possible, in contrast to those listed in our long term section. These work in exactly the same way as our standard Fx Options , except they expire much more quickly. This can be a significant advantage, since you are not forced to wait for certain intervals, but can trade these at any time you want.
“No matter what time intervals you prefer to trade over , always stick to your strategy. The shorter the interval, the faster you’ll know your trading result. This means you have to process new inputs to your strategy quickly. But always remember: Power lies in peace!”
Long Term Fx Options are similar to our standard Fx Options. They only differ in the time to expiry of the option. It ranges from one week to over a year in the future. We give you the possibility to diversify your investments based on different future time horizons. You could consider that longer term investments may be advantageous to your portfolio , but on the other hand you will not be able to react quickly to any significant market events. Your money will be tied up unless you sell off a current long term position.
