Binary Trading

Profitable strategies for binary betting

By John Piper

Jacket text

Over the last few years, the world of betting has changed dramatically thanks to the convergence of betting on sporting events and the trading of financial markets. A new type of betting has emerged which has become the fastest growing area of betting today – binary bets.

John Piper’s ‘Binary Betting’ is the definitive guide to getting started with binary betting. Now he has written a second book for more experienced traders that takes binary betting to a new level.

‘Binary Trading’ assumes that you already know the basics and will show you in detail how and why:

– you need never use a stop again
– you can get the market totally wrong and still make money
– you can look forward to news items and trade them with impunity

Whatever your current trading strategy, you should consider how binaries could fit into your trading plan and make you money. This detailed and comprehensive book from an experienced trader will tell you just that whilst giving an inside look at the exciting world of binary bets.
