How much money can I make?
Your success depends on your skills and patience, your chosen trading strategy, and the amount you are able to invest. We recommend watching our training videos first, so you can make more informed transactions. Beginning traders can try out their skills and practice on the practice account.
How much money can I make on the practice account?
You can't take any profit from transactions you complete on the practice account. You get virtual funds and make virtual transactions. It is intended for training purposes only. To trade using real money, you need to deposit funds to a real account.
What is volatility?
To put it simply, volatility is how much a price changes. With low volatility, changes are insignificant on the chart and the asset might expire at the same level where you bought the option. But when the chart shows high volatility, the asset's level fluctuates quickly. We don't recommend trading when prices are highly volatile for inexperienced traders who don't understand why the price is fluctuating.
What are the purchase time and the expiration time?
The chart shows two lines marking points in time. The purchase time is the white dotted line. After this time, you can't buy an option for the selected expiration time. The expiration time is shown by the solid red line. When the transaction crosses this line, it closes automatically and you take either a profit or a loss for the result. You can choose any available expiration time. There is usually a range available from one-and-a-half seconds up to one month.
How should I choose the expiration time?
If you don't know what expiration time to choose, we recommend trying a longer period, since it's usually easier to make a prediction that way. We also recommend focusing on longer time frames: zoom out of the chart to see the bigger picture. When you zoom in too close, it is difficult to notice the emergence of a price trend or other factors that affect the asset price.
How many options can I buy per expiration?
We don't restrict the number of options you can buy for an expiration or an asset. The only limitation is in the margin: if traders have already invested a large amount in the chart direction you have selected, the amount you invest is limited by this margin. Most likely, you will never see this happen, since the number of buyers and sellers is almost always the same. If you are working in an account with real funds, you can view the investment limit for each of the options on the chart. Click on the box where you enter the amount.
