forex_tradeHere you will find information about the main binary options assets explained by Binary Tribune. You can trade Stocks, Stock Indexes, Commodities, Currencies and Bonds. Currently, there are several financial markets which operate on a daily basis and generate a trading volume of trillions of dollars. The markets we are talking about are the equities markets, the Forex market, the commodities markets, the bond market and the derivatives markets. One of the most interesting of the markets is the derivatives one, where the trader has access to credit default swaps, Exchange Traded Funds, Exchange Traded Notes, and other interesting derivatives that can be traded.

Inexperienced and enthusiastic traders will have a hard time if they decide to take part in one of these markets, because they are looking on this opportunity as a part-time job, instead of a full-time one. In short, their goal is to get some passive income without spending too much time trading. This is why most of these traders don’t have the necessary training, knowledge and experience to operate successfully on one of the larger markets.

But thankfully, there is one fairly new market that is perfect for inexperienced traders who want to generate some side income – the binary options market. This market is accessible by everyone and thanks to its simplicity it is equal for both inexperienced and professional traders. In short, the binary options market is much easier, more convenient, simpler, less risky, and flexible. Therefore, it is the perfect choice for novice traders who want to make their first steps in the world of trading.

The binary options market offers nearly the same assets as the one traded on the traditional markets. You can trade just about everything:

  • Stocks
  • Stock Indexes
  • Commodities
  • Currencies
  • Bonds

Stocks

Stocks are often referred to as equities, but they are mostly known as shares. Usually, they are traded through the stock markets, but they are also accessible on the binary options market. However, when you trade stocks on the binary options market, you don’t actually buy shares – instead you trade contracts that are based on the behavior of the stock. You can trade the stocks of some of the most famous companies in the world – names like Google, Microsoft, HP, Toshiba, Gazprom, Honda and others have their shares on the binary options market.

Stock Indexes

Most countries operate a stock market and these markets a huge impact on the world economy. Most of the assets offered on these markets are also available to binary options traders, so you can easily take advantage of the stock indexes that are traded in the form of exchanges situated in Russia, Japan, Australia, China, UK, US, Russia, etc.

Commodities

The stocks included as commodities are usually materials or elements that are very necessary in today’s world. For example, crude oil, silver and gold are just some of the things without which life would be very difficult. Due to their high value and popularity, these stocks are also offered on the binary options market along a wide range of other commodities.

Currencies

All stock markets depend on currencies, so it isn’t a surprise that currency pairs are one of the most traded assets on the market. In fact, today’s economy wouldn’t be able to sustain itself without Forex. Currencies are one of the most popular assets on binary options broker platforms, and it may be one of the first assets you’ll get to trade.
