Lately, I have been seeing so many advertisement about investing in BINARY OPTIONS. Out of curiosity, I checked it and found that it was like a gambling where you will select whether x will be higher or lower. It is applied to forex trading, stocks, and even commodities. Also, I found out that most of companies operating and offering BINARY OPTIONS platform are based in Greece or some islands in the Pacific. Do you consider this a good option to invest or this is just plain gambling? Please share your thoughts.

If you want to be sure about your money, don't do it. There's a reason these companies are in Greece. Everyone in Greece is desperate since the country is bankrupt. And if it isn't because they are bankrupts, it's these kinds of businesses that put the country in bankruptcy.

As a general rule, "you only invest what you can afford to lose" and personally I believe that this not a good option to invest. Your observation is correct, just like all the critics of binary options, they consider this more of a gambling platform rather than an investment one. The higher the risks - the higher the returns, yes this is true when you invest on something but I rather put my hard-earned money on stock market than "gamble" it away in binary options. ;)

Not worth it in my opinion. If you are interested, I'd much rather stuck with traditional call/put options. But then again, that does require quite a bit of experience and is also a very risky business.

I've done some research on these as a freelance writer to produce some articles for a financial blog that I write for. These are very tricky investments and are not for beginners or the feignt of heart. They can be very volatile, meaning that they can swing up and down very quickly, and you can stand to lose a lot of money if you don't understand how to create an order than minimizes your risks. For most novices, this is a gamble and most likely not worth your time, effort or money. If you are interested in learning more about trading options, I would stick with traditional options first and learn some basic options trading strategies and then venture into binary options. Both are pretty risky, but normal options (like stock options) are easier to learn.

Thank you for those who shared their thoughts. Indeed, it really seems to be a gambling platform and it somehow confirms my thoughts. It is just that their videos, teasers and ads are everywhere. I have decided not to even look at it any more..

I don't think this is a good investment, unless you can afford and like to risk investments then I wouldn't go for this. Thanks for the share.

That is exactly why you shouldn't even think about them. Basically what they are advertizing is "look how you can make $1000 with $10 in under 15 minutes" but quite obviously it's not that simple.

Binary Options is definitely not good. It's either win a little bit or lose a lot. I don't like it and most other people will say the same.

I wouldn't really call it an investment, but that's not saying that it's necessarily bad. I would agree that it's more similar to gambling, though, and it should at the very least be treated as such. I'd only recommend spending some spare change on it and nothing more. I think it would be better to spend majority of your investment capital somewhere a little more stable.

Binary Options will probably only work if you are 100% sure about where the price of the stock/currency is going. Otherwise the risk is too high and it is definitely not worth it. Sure the profits are extremely high if you're lucky, but you also lose a lot if you guess wrong. I wouldn't suggest investing in Binary Options, there are many better ways of spending your money.

This falls into the extremely volatile type of investment. The rewards are huge but so are the risks! In my opinion its not worth it unless you are a pro, but if you were one you wouldnt need people here telling you about them! :D

Domdom makes a very good point, but I think it's also worth mentioning that even the most seasoned professionals had to start out somewhere and some of them may as well just have started out in forums like these. Let's not forget that sometimes or even most of the time, fortunes are made by luck and boldness, so I'd say it might at the very least be worth some tens of dollars just to find out what it's all about and to see if it fits. As long as you are not just scammed out of your money, you will have just as much chance as anyone to turn a profit, but just be more careful than most when doing so to keep yourself as safe as possible.

Like you said it is like gambling. So my advice would be to make sure that you carry out a lot of reading about the binary options first before getting into the business. Either way avoid them there is no making money the easy way.

I really don't like the option of trading BINARY OPTIONS. In truth, I haven't taken an in-depth look into this new form of trading, but I assume that if it is that you can earn so much from one single trade, then your risk is higher. Therefore, your losses could be great. I don't think I will ever trade Binary Options. I trade forex. I get to control my losses and my gains.

Research is pivotal. And you know the puzzling thing about it, there isn't any transparency. In all of the advertisements that I have seen, I see how the personal accounts get fat with money, but I don't understand the reasoning behind a person gaining so much money all at once. I cannot discredit this method of trading however. But I am wary of it.

Those advertisements alone make me want to stay away from it. Some of them even advertise no speads and no commissions... but.. if there is no commission then how is the company offering this service making money in order to cover their expenses?

Well, I personally don't gamble. With gambling, there is the prospect of a high gain, and simultaneously a high loss. So, I prefer to be able to control the volume or amount of my losses. Therefore, forex trading is more viable option for me. I've also seen these advertisements for Binary Options and I personally won't waste my time in doing further researches. These advertisements should have to "pop up" in order for you to view them. They may not be scams, but they sure are shady. I won't invest in it.

Potent statement. The things that are invaluable, valuable and full of worth, are the things that we work for. Doing Binary Options isn't really work. You're life's income is gonna be purely dependent on a single impetuous bet. I don't think so!

Binary Options are really bad and a massive scam. I read that they manipulate the prices and probably make the direction go the other way from what you invested in. It is worse than gambling because they take a massive cut. Roulette take 2.7% while binary options pay 70% if you win so are making a 30% profit. These companies want you to lose, as thats how they make money, Often they don't pay out if you win. These companies are rolling in it and more and more are being set up. It is a cash cow.

By the looks of it, it is really gambling and you can lose your money in an instant. That depends upon you whether you would like to risk your own money or not.

First of all, invest only with an amount you're comfortable losing 100%. Now that we're over that, I suggest you don't invest in binary options. Invest in equities first. It seems like why you're going with binary options as opposed to normal options is that you're trying to make a quick buck. Trust me, you won't. Start out with stocks and then you can move on to derivatives.

Binary options is a form of gambling. There are many websites out there that say you can make money, they have some loophole or something but I doubt all of them, they are most likely scams and they make money out of referring you. Binary options make money when you lose, so they are interested in seeing you lose. That is different to forex. I looked into something called binary options arbitrage but cant find out much about it, and I cant find any sites that are legit. That might work, its to do with taking advantage of different prices between brokers. Can't tell you more than that.

I have to 100% agree with Eppie, don't invest what you cant afford to lose. I personally know several binary options traders who are having great success with it, there are pitfalls and upsides to binary options trading and I wouldn't call it an "investment" exactly. If you learn certain strategies, what days and times are best to trade and not trade on (like bank holidays), and follow "news" you can make great money with binaries.

Like nearly anything, if you don't focus and put an effort into it nothing will happen.

You'll only profit if you actually know what you're doing with binaries. You need strategy, discipline, patience and not be greedy to win.

Binary options trading like that which is offered by OneTwoTrade is considered by some to be a form of gambling. This is not a fair description successful binary options trading requires the application of expert knowledge and skill.

Like the "writer" said #novasparker he is right. Not for beginners, especially if you don't know basic stuff about economics, financial, trades, stocks. A guy told me a while a go about how cool is that he is trading binary. I asked details and he told me that he learned from some guys who were investing like a lot of moneys in this and losing $100,000 was not really a problem for them. So, keep you cash safe...or learn before playing them!

Gambling and binary options trading may appear to be similar endeavors on first glance. But with leading binary options broker OneTwoTrade the emphasis is always on careful calculation and in-depth research.

In my views you go ahead if you have proper knowledge and experience about it. Because it is a type of gambling so you can lose your money also.

I don't think it is wrong that people in Greece want to improve their situation. Often times, when you are at rock bottom you rise. So who is to say investing in Greece is like investing in the stock market. Invest when its low and pull out when its high. Besides, if you look at the brokers here: http://www.binaryoptionstrategy.eu/binary-options-brokers-comparison/, you will see that these companies have office all over the world and often times if there is an office in Greece, there are multiple other offices in other countries.

Yes investment is really best way to secure future things but while doing such investment risk is that to go with proper dealers or broker gives legal property deals. Some of top Nagpur real estate developers (https://www.pickeronline.com/nagpur/real-estate-developers) really offering best dealing includes transfer-ency in process.

If you have to ensure about your money, don't do it. There's a reason these associations are in Greece. Everyone in Greece is earnest since the country is bankrupt. Also, in case it isn't in light of the fact that they are bankrupts, it's these sorts of associations that put the country in indebtedness.

In the event that you need to guarantee about your cash, don't do it. There's a reason these affiliations are in Greece. Everybody in Greece is sincere since the nation is bankrupt. Likewise, on the off chance that it isn't in light of the way that they are bankrupts, it's these sorts of affiliations that put the nation in obligation.

I agree Your point but according to my point of view" Binary Option "means put very simply ,These options pay a fixed amount if they “in the money”, but the entire investment is lost, if the binary trade loses. You can also trade in #stockmarket investing because this market does have the potential to make you rich . If you are planning to such a way visit niche below

Binary trading is pure luck. Or you can say a joke. There literally is nothing to predict for. I mean what are you supposed to look at to predict the market for the next 30-90 seconds?. In stock exchange for example you can examine the company's profile and predict for what would happen to stock in the next months. But to see a whole market for the next 30 seconds, you gotta be kidding me. None of us is superhuman to this extent.

Binary options? You kidding? This is such an unreliable way of earning money. It's almost like a casino. You'd better move to forex trading. With a decent broker you won't have concerns. IMy broker is dekocorp because of high-security and quick withdrawals. Try this option.
