With gold markets recovering aggressively from lows made near the end of last year many traders want to participate in the rally but struggling to find an instrument that they can trade with an appropriate level of risk.
Gold futures trade with a high contract value and the initial margin required to hold a small position can be relatively high. Most traders do not have accounts with enough capital to trade these positions. Binary options offer one solution to this problem as they have very low contract values allowing a trader to trade in a market that they otherwise would not be able to.
Nadex offers traders weekly binary options on gold so a trader can use them to take swing trades. Swing trading the futures would be prohibitively expense for most traders but when using binary options any trader can follow a simple plan to set up trades. First a trader needs to determine targets. If there is an expiration in the week a trader is trying to take a position they can use the options on futures market to calculate an expected move.
A trader simply needs to take the price of the at the money straddle and add or subtract it from the current price of the underlying. Once a trader has these targets they can select binary options trades depending on their bias in the market.
If they are looking for an upside move a trader would look to buy the binary options near the upside target. I f a trader expects the market to sell off they would sell the binary option near the downside target. Once a trader has a position in weekly binary options they do not need to hold them until expiration. It is actually better from a risk management standpoint to use profit targets to scale out of a position. Since binary options also have a minimum and maximum value a trader can enter a position, set profit targets, and not worry about an outsized loss.
This means that a trader who is in a binary options position does not need to manage their risk as actively as someone holding futures or stocks. If you have an interest in trading gold then you may want to consider trading binary options.
