Another aspect for binary options is through trading commodities. Commodities can also be called consumables as they are basically anything people use on a regular basis.
Oil is one form of commodity as is gold and silver. As anyone in North America knows we have quite the oil addicted society. Until we have a viable alternative to oil and gasoline it probably won’t be changing any time soon.
With regards to gold and silver being commodities, they aren’t just used in jewellery or for investment in coins and bars.
As highly conductive metals they make for great use in electronics like you computer. Their corrosion resistance makes for great use in cell phones or any other type of electronic that might come into contact with moisture as you go about your day. Just don’t go swimming with your new iPhone.
And hopefully it doesn’t give you any ideas to melt all the gold and silver in your old cell phone and computer as I don’t know if that’s legal.
The broker you choose for binary options commodity trading will have a list of the available commodities available to you for trading.
With precious metals investing they are usually are good investments when the economy does poorly. And they tend to tank when the economy is doing well. Note I said “tend” nothing is absolute 100% one way or the other.
To help decide what type of commodity to invest in lets say for example that a particular oil company has an oil spill from it’s oil field. A possible strategy to do would be do a put on that particular company and then a call on oil stocks in general.
The reason is that the company that had the spill will likely have a sell off of its stock and as you likely notice oil prices spike when a CEO of an oil company gets a hang nail. Imagine what happens to the supply and demand when there’s a spill.
Anything like that can affect the price of a commodity will give an indication of how to potentially engage safely in commodity trading. I’ve already stated in previous articles though that there is no 100% safe trading system, what I mean by “safely” is to do your own due diligence to make sure that something is right for you and to not use debt or your children’s university education funds for speculative investing.
