    Earning an income and trading forex on the Internet are two notions that many think of as an integral whole. The majority of people believe that interbank currency exchange is factually the only way to make profit. As can be seen in practice, forex trading is an excellent way to multiply funds and is used by many people who wish to capitalize on currency speculation. Forex market features a wide range of advantages, it is not without reason that forex is considered to be the best type of investment.

    Among the main advantages of the binary options are named high yield, quick earnings and the absence of high risks.

    Now, however, widely touted is binary options trading. What is more, it is positioned as an easy, fast and perfect way to make money, a better one than the international currency market. Among the main advantages of the binary options are named high yield, quick earnings and the absence of high risks. But what is really a better choice, FX trading or binary trading? In order not to be sorry about your decision, you have to conduct a comparative analysis of these both trading types.

    Preliminary training is essential for any kind of trade; the amount of profit is directly influenced by the level of the trader’s experience. Just like any other activity type, trading proficiency requires money and time.

    For comparison let’s consider the simplest versions of forex trading and binary options trading.

    This is the key factor of any business. For example, let’s consider a $100 account. So, what can be expected with this money on the global forex market and in binary options trading? On the foreign exchange market you can expect 20 to 30 dollars on each transaction, but trading is risky, as the leverage is 1:100. In options trading it is minimal to get $60 per transaction.

    In such case trading forex is less risky; when trading options you are unable to close a position at any time as in currency trading. Once a transaction fails, you are losing almost everything, because the maximum compensation does not exceed 15%.

    Options trading is more simple, therefore it is easier for a novice to predict the outcome. To be certain of this, open a few trades on a demo account and see for yourself.

    Binary options brokers offer their customers an opportunity to work in a web browser, which means the risk of any technical problems is low; at the same time, most of these brokers are new to the market yet, and don’t have neither positive nor negative operational history. Choosing a company for options trading, for example, 24options or Anyoption, refer to reviews of traders who’ve been practicing this type of trading already. OptionFair is one of the already well-known binary firms, so you can easily find information about it.

    Forex brokers are mostly large and reputable companies, and have earned a name during years of work of the currency markets. Among such companies are FxPro, Alpari, NordFX, etc. The information about them is abundant, therefore, knowing the basics of choosing a forex broker and being aware of the FX brokers’ ratings, it is realistic to find a proper company. It must be admitted that ‘freezing’ terminals are a problem common to many brokerages, though not to all of them.

    Summarizing it all up, we come to the following conclusion: binary options are more profitable and less difficult to be mastered by beginners.

    Summary

    Summarizing it all up, we come to the following conclusion: binary options are more profitable and less difficult to be mastered by beginners. At the same time, they are pretty risky, so from this point of view forex trading is preferable: at forex your earnings are going to be somewhat lower, but you won’t lose everything at once, - with the right approach, of course.

    I believe that those who are associated with forex trading should also consider binary options too as it could be a hedging tool for forex trades. However I have noticed that there are many binary brokers with a lot of complaints so it is necessary to look for a decent binary option broker to start trading with.

    You will generally find people starting up with Forex only and then trying out Binary, it’s rare to see it other way. I don’t think it’s even debatable about which is better, as it’s Forex that’s clearly the leading work, but even Binary can be good if we have the skills. I do Forex trading mainly and due to OctaFX broker, it’s so much helpful especially to do with rock solid conditions which include small spreads from 0.1 pips to high leverage up to 1.500 plus much more, it’s all brilliant.

    I believe Instaforex is not the best epecially when it comes to Binary Trading. Instaforex use information from InstaForex-USA.com to create Quotes Archive yet traders they only allow to have accounts with InstaForex-USA2.com servers/ So they are creating Quotes archives from Instaforex.USA.com,why dont they allow traders live access to this server, Instaforex.USA.com,?
