Let’s be honest with ourselves, finding a long-term effective trading strategy that proves to be effective and consistent can be hard to come by this day and age. This issue solely is due to one reason and one reason alone which can be better explained by saying that the markets are constantly evolving. No one day is the same as any previous day, which is kind of the wonder within the investment industry. With this truth in mind it is imperative that we, as investors, take the time to backtest every strategy that we may come across with before actually implementing it with your live trading account. Which is why today we will be covering one of the most effective binary option trading strategies that has proven effective for myself time and time again.
Binary Options Pivot Strategy by Tim Lanoue
As many of you most likely insinuated by the title of this article we will be using a technical analysis based trading strategy that does require the use of pivot points. So having access to a reputable charting solution is essential; some recommended charting solutions that you could consider using would be MetaTrader4, MetaTrader5, thinkorswim, or Free Stock Charts. Moving forward, once you have your charting solution up and running then the next step that you need to complete would be to add the Pivot Point indicator into your charting solution. One note to keep in mind as well with the Pivot Point indicator would be that it changes automatically depending on the time frame you select so you won’t need to edit the settings.
Once you have completed that you can consider using one of two timeframes to watch your targeted asset. The first time frame would be a period of 15 minutes while the second time frame would be a period of 4 hours. When using a 15 minute time frame it is imperative to remember that we use an End-Of-Day expiry while on the other hand if we are using a 4 hour time frame then we need to make sure we use an End-Of-Week expiry time. The next step that needs to be completed now would be to select a currency pair as your asset of choice. It truly doesn’t matter which currency pairs you choose to invest with you just want to make sure that the trend of the asset is crossing pivot point levels.
In the picture above and below you can see two different examples of how we would properly implement this trading strategy with our two different time frames. In the picture above you can see we have the CAD/JPY currency pair with a 15 minute time frame so this indicates to us that we will be using an End-Of-Day expiry time. Now in order for a signal to be generated we are waiting for only one occurrence to happen which would be the formation of a Shooting Star candlestick through a Pivot Point level. Once this has occurred then we place a PUT investment that is appropriate with the time frame. Now in the picture below you can see the creation of the Shooting Star candlestick through our support level so we go ahead and place a PUT investment with an End-Of-Week expiry.
As you can see in the pictures above both of our investments landed in-the-money by quite a good number of pips indicating to us that the signals generated with this trading strategy are strong and accurate. Now this strategy doesn’t produce quite the volume of trades as some of the other strategies that I have posted on here but that doesn’t mean you can’t apply this strategy to 4 or 5 different currency pairs for more opportunities. Now one of the best advantages about this trading strategy would be that it doesn’t matter what time of day you choose to invest with, all you want to make sure of would be that the targeted assets are intertwining with Pivot Point levels. I have been using this strategy for the past 5 months and have had great success so once you get the hang of the signals and how to properly implement this strategy there is no reason why you cannot establish a success rate of 75% or higher.
