Binary Options vs Traditional Trading

The trouble with traditional methods of investing in the markets is that the bias is always on the long side. An investor will call his broker to buy a particular equity with the expectation that the price of that equity will rise further over time. This is not always the case, many equities will drop in value and may never recover to even the entry level over a period of years. The fact that this form of investing always has a bullish bias is a fundamental flaw. It is a fact that markets fall three times faster than they rise therefore a bullish bias at all times results in losing out on lucrative money making opportunities.

MarketsWorld offers investors the ability to make money when the markets are rising or falling. To eliminate a bullish bias and become "neutral" before entering a trade is an important advantage. The ultimate goal of making a profit can be achieved more easily when an investor is able to make money when the markets are moving up or down.
