What To Consider When Choosing A Binary Options Signal Service

You’ve probably been inundated with emails offering you Binary Options systems which guarantee profits from email marketers telling you that you have to get this new system to help you make big bucks but I advise you to tread carefully.

Here Are 8 Things To Consider When Choosing A Signal Service

1. Most Binary Options Systems are Software or Signal Services

Most of them are either software base or email signal services. Some of them are so manipulative that you will find it virtually impossible to unsubscribe even after marking them as spam.

2. Save your money and don’t buy the upgrades unless you know what you are doing.

I personally purchase everything coming on the market to do with Binary Options and can tell you now… Buyer Beware! Most of them are OK but if you rely on these alone you could loose more than your shirt. Warning: Do not buy the up sell or in laymen’s terms do not fall for the opportunity to upgrade and make more money. Most of them initially are selling you a currency base signal service but they tell you that you can double or quadruple your profits if you purchase their other product but unless you specifically trade stocks only buy the first product and opt out of the other offers. The option to do this is at the bottom of the page where is says, “No Thanks” take me to the offer and ignore the negative comment implying that you are a looser for not upgrading. I find this type of marketing extremely disrespectful and unnecessary.

3. Never use a signal service alone but combine with a basic trade entry strategy

As with most of these signal tools, I have requested refunds as they are unreliable and inaccurate. Some of them are just poorly configured making it virtually impossible to tell which signal to follow. I do not wish to name the ones to avoid but I can tell which one I am still using since April 2013. This is a signal service that has a super high accuracy, if used correctly. I also would like to let you know that I still stick to my basic strategy as it is the simplest entry criteria that I need to follow as I do not think that making things more complicated required to be successful. Combined with this signal service I use it to verify or notify me of an opportunity. Also it is important that you are able to identify entries on you own if you intend to go professional so the sooner you practice the sooner you will succeed.

4. Create a Signal folder to enable all your signals in the one place.

One thing I should point out is that initially the signals will appear in your Spam folder and it requires a few tricks to make sure they go where you want them to. I personally have a folder called “000 BO Signals” so that I can have this email folder open in a new window to show me when the signal appears. Each day I start trading I open the last signal sent so that any further signals will appear as unread. This will help you keep trade of new trades.

5. Stop the signal service from being sent to your spam folder

To get the signals out of the Spam folder firstly mark it as Not Spam. Secondly add it to your contact list if available if not you will need to reply to the email so that your email account will consider them as your contact. Next you will need to create a filter to add any future signals to the “000 BO Signals” folder. Gmail allows this quite simply but a YouTube search will show you how to do it if you get stuck.

6. Create a filter to make sure each signal automatically go into your Signal folder.

I use these signals while I’m online to check my charts and verify my entry criteria. As you would appreciate every second counts and entering a trade one minute too late or early could make the difference of a win or loss especially if you are like me working with under 10 minute expiries.

7. Use the signal as trade notification or reminder

It also help as I sometimes get lost or distracted while I’m online and need a gentle nudge to help me focus again. Unfortunately there is no sound available for individual folders as this would be really cool. Any Gmail developers out there that can make this happen with an individual folder notification On / Off button would be really helpful.

8. Choose you trade period and never over trade

Lastly choose a time period which suits your trading strategy so that you are not over trading but are getting significant trading opportunities.
