You’re reading this, so you’re either interested in trading binary options or you’re already trading, but need some confirmation that you’re on the right track – or need to know how to get there. Let’s start by saying everyone has their own moment when they’re truly ready (which is kind of what I mean with sign number 5). So are you ready? Let’s find out!
You’re Reading the Right Stories
You can’t become a success if you don’t educate yourself. With education being an ongoing process, you need to keep brushing up on everything you need to know about the market. If you already are doing this, and you check the news regularly, you’re definitely on the right track.
You Know Your Assets
You’ve probably made a list of what you want to trade (if not, start doing it now). Dig into the history of your asset. If it’s a stock, find out what the company is up to, and who runs the show. If it’s a commodity or currency pair you’re trading, find out what happened in the past and why. Especially the ‘why’ is very important.
You Have a Great Strategy
Trading without a strategy is like sailing without a boat. You may get somewhere, but only if you’re really lucky. There are many different strategies. Here’s an insightful article about creating a successful binary options trading strategy.
Your Account Is Ready to Go
No trading can happen without a fully operational, fully funded trading account, so make sure you have everything lined up and working before you start. If there are any additional documents the broker needs to verify your identity, make sure they get them. Otherwise you won’t receive any payouts.
It Feels Right
Too obvious? Maybe, but not everyone stops and asks: am I ready for this? You’re taking a risk, and you may end up either losing or winning. Make sure you realize that, and make sure you are ready.
