“Why my result is not as expected
even I followed all steps?”
There are different reasons why this
would happen. And today we will talk about 2 main aspects of this problem
The most common problem is that a lot of
traders are focusing on the strategy itself and forgot about there are false
signals laying along side with the true signals. Therefore, it is important to
learn to spot false signals in all strategy that you are using.
And the most efficient way to avoid false
signal is to trade with stable markets. Remember that volatile market and false
signals are like a twin which they often associate with each other.

avoid false signal via this video here:
Even though you are following every step
of the strategy, your emotion/mentality might not be able to keep up with you
in live trading environment. That’s why panic and anxiety happen and that’s a
leading cause of misjudgment.
Instead of practicing on demo, try
practicing with minimum amount in live trading so that you can get a better
idea on how it feels like, and get used to the intense trading environment.
That’s another key for you to achieve your goal in binary options trading.
“When using MACD, do we look at the Lines
“We look at both lines and histogram when
using the MACD, because they are both giving out useful information to help
traders to analysis the market better.”
Alright, so what information they giving
Lines in MACD
The 2 lines in MACD tells traders whether
price is heading upward or downward, and it gives out signals at when the price
changes direction. Therefore, we can see these 2 lines are a directional
Blue line above red line: Price is in an upward formation
Blue line below red line: Price is in a downward formation
Histogram act as a complementary signal
in the MACD which it tells traders the momemtum of the price movement, whether
it is strengthening or weakening. Moreover, traders are able to have an idea of
the price direction by identifying the colour of the histogram, which are:
Green histogram: Price is in upward formation, the longer the green histogram the strong the upward movement is.
Purple histogram: Price is in downward formation, the longer the purple histogram the strong the downward movement is.
Combining the lines and histogram in MACD
will help you to get a better idea on the price direction and price momentum at
the same time which will help you to make better decision when entering the

“What are The Differences Between Forex
and Binary Options Trading?”
This is the No.1 most asked question from
beginners who just jumped into the forex or binary options due to the
similarity on these 2 trading options.
We all know that both binary options and
forex are trading with currency exchange rates. For example, USDJPY, EURUSD,
GBPUSD etc. Though what are the core differences between these two options?
Which one is better than which? Let’s take a look at the following explanation.
By taking a look at the table above, we
can see that binary options requires less capital funding, and lower technical
skill. Though when compare with Forex trading, binary options have a lower
profit return since it’s trading with lower capital funds. And flexibility is
lower for binary options as well because the trading period is fixed.
To sum up the differences between binary
options and forex, binary options is easier to start with lower technical skill
required and shorter trading period. Though Forex will give you a bigger profit
return but requires higher technical skill and longer trading period.
I would say that binary options is more
for beginner to get a taste of foreign exchange market. Though after you gain
enough experience and you are craving for more profit, it might be the time for
you to switch to Forex trading.
Though no matter which one you chose, we
will do our best to help you to solve all questions you have and we will help

“What is the difference between blue SMA and red SMA?”
In my previous videos, there are times
where I would only use Simple Moving Average (SMA) to analyze the market. And
the question here is – What are the differences between the SMAs I have on the
SMA calculates the average price movement
by specified period of time. For example, when the parameter of a SMA is set to
7 and the trader is trading with a 1 minute chart. In this case, the SMA is
calculating the previous 7 minutes of price movement.
Let’s put it in an easier way. The
shorter period the SMA, the closer it stays with the candlestick, and more
sensitive it is to price changes.
The answer to the question at the
beginning, the difference between the red and blue SMA is that they are set
with different parameter.
And in fact we are using the
crossover of the blue and red SMA to spot timing to enter the market, which
when these 2 SMAs crossover, it indicates a confirmation of a direction change
in price movement.
SMA is one of the most basic indicators
though it’s has been one of the most popular indicators of all time. Take a
look at this video to find out more about the SMA strategy!
This is a very general question. Though
the most basic and realistic answer would be to trade the right market with the
right strategy. So now, here we come to another question, what is the right
market and what is the right strategy? Take a look at the explanation below.
The right market
In binary options trading, the right
market is something not too volatile nor too quiet. A smooth developing market
is what we always after when we are going through all different currency pairs.
If the market is too volatile, price
might have unexpected sudden moves. And if the market is too quiet, your trade
will not go anywhere. The balance between volatile and quiet is crucial when it
comes to binary options trading. Take a look at this video to find out more on
what is a good market and what is a bad market:
Next, the right strategy. A right
strategy is referring to your choice of strategy that you apply on range market
and trend market.
Remember to always use trend following
strategy for trend market and range market trading strategy for range market.
Take a look at the videos below to find out 2 of my favorite strategy for trend
market and range market:
“I want to install Lion BO application,
why is it in Japanese?”
We do receive this question from traders from time to time. Note that the Japanese application is specifically designed for traders reside in Japan, and it will not be accessible for international traders from outside Japan. And therefore, the account details you have will not gain you access to the Japanese application. Also Lion Binary Option application is not listed on Play Store.

“What are Option Types? What are the
differences between HIGHLOW & Anytime option?”
There are two different option types
offered in the LION Binary Option Platform – The HIGHLOW option and ANYTIME
option. In today’s post we will take a look at the differences on these two
different option types.
The one that I want to spend time and
explain here would be the purchasing period between the two option types.
As for Anytime Option. trader will be
able to place their trades anywhere they want. Once a trade is executed. The
remaining time is the exact period that the trader is trading with.
On the other hand, for HIGHLOW option.
Purchase period is fixed and traders would need to place trade at a designate
period. The remaining time is depending on when the trade is executed. And on
top of that there will be a period where you won’t be able to open new trades
or close existing positions.
E.g. 3 minute options. Option started → 1
minute later trade executed → Remaining time: 2 minutes.
Different trader would choose different
option type depending on the strategies that they are using. Though as for
beginners, I would recommend anytime option as it is far easier to operate and
understand since there is less limitation.
Login to the demo platform now and try
out both option types and see which one might suit you better!
Please note the following if you want to
start trading in forex.
