Learning how to deal with trading options is not as difficult as it might seem at first glance. The most basic tool you need to use when you start learning about trading is the trading platform.

First, let's designate the concept itself, an option is a derivative instrument of the stock market, it is always based on some underlying asset. That is, there cannot be just an option, but there can be an option on certain stocks, on an index, on gold. An option is an agreement between a buyer and a seller, which stipulates a price and a period after which this agreement comes into force. That is, you acquire the right to buy an asset at a predetermined price, or sell it.

The main reason an options trading platform is really needed is that you will be using quite a few indices to trade options, and you need a platform that can make these indices easier to use.

Here are some of the main features that you should look for in a trading platform when you start learning options trading.

Types of binary options?

Let's start with the definition of a binary option - this is such an exchange contract used to earn a trader due to the price movement of an asset (currency, cryptocurrency, raw materials, shares) in the global financial market.

The profitability of a deal is determined not by the price of the selected asset itself, but by the correct forecast indicated by the trader in the deal he opens. To make a profit, a trader must indicate the direction of price movement immediately before the time of closing this transaction.

Binary options involve several theories when they are traded. There is an underlying asset that is being surrendered, there is a route to follow along with a trade, and there are several possible outcomes in addition to the options to consider. However, it is very important to understand certain factors in order to determine the outcome of binary options trading. For example, you need to know if the traded resources are call or put options, when they expire, how much deposit is required, and so on. These points should be well understood before contacting a binary options agent.

An asset is a trading instrument offered on the broker's site for making a forecast. Currency pairs, business indices, commodities or groups of commodities, shares of international companies can be represented.

Put option - execution of a deal, involves a decrease in the price of the selected asset. Forecasted by a trader in case of expectation of such a fall.

One touch is the opening of a transaction when the price of an asset reaches a given level, called One Touch or the impossibility of such an achievement, called NoTouch until the moment of the selected time interval.

Expiration - the duration of an open order. The total of the order will be fixed at the expiration of the time interval selected by the trader.
