Understanding the Uses and Limits of VolatilityAll investors should always focus on the promise of high returns, through different strategies depending entirely on how comfortable they are with their options. Some investors may be more comfortable with the larger prospect of risk, while other traders will consider investing over longer periods of time in order to generate a consistent profit. No matter whatever, however, the trader should always focus on comfortable levels of risk, especially when working with volatility. The uses and limits of volatility are important factors to take into consideration before and after every trade, especially for new traders who are just beginning to work with their environments. While risk is often understood in a general sense, volatility can be understood in a risk and reward type of relationship, where the higher the risk is, the better the payout can be. As such, in order for investors to understand what options will provide them with the largest room for profit, they must learn about the risk involved in such trades.   [caption id="attachment_7770" align="alignright" width="300"] Understanding the Uses and Limits of Volatility[/caption] There are many different types of vol...

Aprendiendo de las dificultades en la diversificaciónUnderstanding the pitfalls of diversification is vital.  Both sophisticated and novice investors recognize the benefits of diversifying their holdings.  With a broad range of investments, many believe that they will be better able to mitigate their risks.  The idea is that assets that perform well will offset the losses that occur in other areas of the portfolio.  It is important to note, however, that a strong focus on diversification has both benefits and drawbacks.  In fact, some even argue that diversification can have a negative impact on the performance of the portfolio overall. The Costs of Diversifying The costs of keeping a fairly concentrated portfolio are actually a lot lower in most instances than maintaining a diverse range of investments.  Each asset class will have its own set of expense that are incurred with each transaction.  Funds can carry redemption and sales charges and each third-party that is involved in the investment process is likely to charge fee for account activities.  When people are committed to diversifying, they must have strategies in place for minimizing the costs of having a greater range of assets.  For instance, they can choose to d...

Why are People Hoarding CoinsGold: Why are people hoarding coins? The prices of gold coins have remained steady in a market, in which the prices of derivatives are fluctuating wildly from one end of the financial spectrum to the other. Nothing proves this fact better than the period during the first quarter of 2008, when the global economic crisis pulled down the prices of stocks, bonds, and real estate by a level not witnessed in the past few decades. However, the prices of gold coins increased during this period. Figures from authentic sources show that that the value of gold, per kg, shot up from Dollar 27, 724 in the first week of January 2008 to Dollar 32,291 on March 17, 2008. During this same period, the prices of stocks and bonds fell by nearly 30% during this same period. Their prices declined even more by early 2009. The prices of gold kept on increasing, reaching a peak of Dollar 58,732 per kg during mid September 2011. Reliable figures point out that the price of gold increased by 200% between 1998 and 2008. These figures clearly indicate that people consider gold coins as a safe investment. Apart from this, it is easy to sell them anywhere in the world. The resale value of gold coins, especi...

Successes With Binary Options TradingThis is probably one of the biggest questions which traders and potential traders alike have in the back of their minds when assessing their own successes with binary options trading. In this article, we’ll look at a number of ways in which you can improve and ensure the consistency of those successes so that, whilst everyone in financial trading has a few bad days, you can have a lot fewer than most. Choose Your Battles One of the great appeals of binary options trading is that it allows for fast-paced trading action amidst a vast array of different assets. From commodities and indices, to shares and Forex, binary options trading provides the budding trader with access to everything that the financial candy shop has to offer. But does that mean you should engage with all of it? Absolutely not. It’s impossible to overstate the importance of choosing your battles, of studying markets until you are an expert in determining the general movement of assets and how that relates to the wider context of the financial world. Determine factors which correlated with the up and down motion of various assets on various markets; study graphs and analyze financial data until you know ...

VolatilityVolatility became an asset class in 2003, with the introduction of the new VIX index.  These assets can be traded through futures and there is even the goal of adding a VIX class of options.  Both options and VIX future are negatively correlated with the performance of the market for equities. Volatility - The Birth Of A New Asset Class This is actually the most significant market development since 1973 when the Black-Scholes pricing model hit the scene.  As the result of developments pertaining to derivative and calculation products, there are many new opportunities that have become available for investors.  The former way of measuring market volatility was based upon the S&P 100.  This was known as the VOX and it was wholly reliant upon the Black-Scholes pricing model.  Created in 1993, the VOX as a method of measurement simply was not sufficient for use on the S&P 500 which has far more derivatives. Representing The Entire Market In comparison to the VOX, the VIX gives far more insight into actual market conditions and the potential futures for these.  Instead of the Black-Scholes method of pricing, it relies on a weighted-average pricing scheme that a...

Psychology in TradingPsychology plays a critical role in binary options trading. Trading financial instruments is an extremely competitive business, and traders are relentlessly faced with challenges that will test their skills in balancing the need to protect capital over taking advantage of recognizable trading set-ups. Only the toughest survive in this game. And for those who succeed, the rewards may be mind-boggling. To the weak, unprepared and reckless, substantial losses lie ahead. There is very little room for emotions; only room to make calculated, well-planned trading decisions. And since your emotions have the propensity to skew the decision-making process, success and failure can bring out the best and worst of your emotions. Remove Fear You need to understand that fear is simply your natural reaction to what you perceive as a threat. When bad news hits a market, your first instinct is to liquidate your holdings and refrain from taking any more risks. Now, if you do that, you may avoid certain losses, but you will also miss out on some profitable trading situations. The key is to isolate and identify the reasons behind your fears. This is not easy, and may take some practice.  It si...

Natural-Resource-InvestingNatural resources investing is perhaps as old as mankind itself. Man has always traded in the world's major natural resources such as coal, lumber gold, silver, and more recently oil and gas. Natural resources investing has a very wide scope and covers everything that is either collected in a raw form, or mined from the earth's crust. There are some compelling reasons that make natural investing quite attractive. Some of these are: Rapidly Growing Global Infrastructure Global infrastructural spending is expanding at a fast clip with a lot of construction activity going on. In the past, most of the global spending on infrastructure was driven by the large developed economies. However, in the last decade, BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) as well as other developing economies have become major consumers of construction material such as steel, gravel, lumber, cement and so on. Maintaining all that global infrastructure will result in the demand for these commodities remaining high for many years to come. Rising Disposable Incomes As the disposable incomes in developing economies continue to rise, people have more money to spend on things like buying...

Buying GoldThe financial turmoil of the last decade has brought many challenges for investors seeking growth and security. As the stock market looks increasingly risky, more and more investors are attracted to buying gold as a safe haven against inflation and financial instability, but may not be clear where to start. These may be the 5 best bets for buying gold. Of course, the best gold investment option for you depends on your main reason for buying gold -- whether it is as a safe haven, or for profit. Investments which bring the highest potential profits are the most volatile, and so carry the highest risk. Among the gold investment possibilities, gold options and futures, and gold mining stocks, carry the highest potential return and the highest risk. Holding Physical Gold If you are primarily concerned with safety, there is nothing to beat holding the physical product; gold bullion coins or bars. By holding the tangible asset, you don't have to worry about the volatility of paper assets, and you possess the only currency that has intrinsic value. The disadvantages are that, unless you hold the gold in an IRA, you have the problem of storage, and you need to hold it for the long ...

binary-options-tradingTo gain financial stability in the current harsh economic environment, one needs to look for ways of making extra money. One of the sure ways of doing this is by embracing binary options trading. This is a relatively new form of online trading which allows traders from all across the globe to make money by simply trading on assets listed on the trading platform such as precious commodities like gold and silver as well as stocks, indices and currency pairs. How Does Binary Options Trading Work? Basically, binary brokers allow prospective traders to create a free account in order to access the trading tools and features. However, you will be required to deposit a given amount of money in order to trade. Unlike conventional traders, who usually purchase or sell assets, here you only need to accurately predict price movement of your preferred asset. For example, if you invest $100 on Samsung stocks that have a payout of 80%, you have a chance to earn $80 if you correctly predict the direction that the price of the asset will move by the expiry of the trade. Let us proceed and look at reasons why you should take part in binary options trading and why this exciting form of onlin...

Ending a Trade EarlyFor many new traders, working with binary options can be difficult, simply because of all of the terminology and tips that they need to keep in mind in order to be successful in their trades. While so much information may seem overwhelming at first, the truth is that it is all a necessary part of familiarizing yourself with the field, which can lead to greater planning and resulting success. One of the most important techniques that traders should learn how to work with is ending a trade early. This option will allow traders to have a little bit more breathing room with their expiry dates, and planning ahead with this technique will often result in larger payouts when performed skillfully. An early closure will allow the trader to exit out of their option before the expiry time on it is up. This can be done for a percentage of their return, which can help traders generate a profit in the field without having to worry about sudden changes before the expiration time is up. An example of using this strategy effectively involves the trader looking into their options and seeing that while a trend may continue favorably, it may not continue up to the expiry point. With an early end to...
