Options Trading as an Amateur Options Trading is a kind of online trading based on the Forex market. This term contains excessive information that can’t be explained in a few words. 

Options Trading can be defined as a way of online investment for a fixed return with an expiration period, which is also fixed. It has gained huge popularity in the last couple of years, mainly because of its simplicity and appeal toward the public. To understand it first, know the Forex market. 

What Is Forex and How to trade in Forex Market? 

Forex means Foreign Exchange. In the Forex market, you will buy/sell currencies. It is a standard description of the Forex Market. But today, Forex market trading is the kind of online trading. Some companies offer you to trade in the Forex market, and the traders call them Forex Brokers. Forex is like the Stocks market. Nowadays, a lot of Forex Brokers offer their clients trading on Stocks, Energies, and metal markets too. Just like stocks markets in the Forex market, you can trade currency based on what you get about the currency value, but the main difference with Forex is that you can trade sell or buy just as easily. If you predict that a currency will increase in value, you can buy it. If you think it will decrease, you can sell it. On the Forex market, you should choose an asset for trading.

You are not able to buy one currency and exchange it to your money. For example, you fail to Buy GBP (British Pound) and convert it to AUD (Australian dollar), JPY (Japanese Yen), and Or USD (Us Dollar). In the Forex market, you should choose your assets in the beginning and the asset defined in Forex broker like these: EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, USDCHF, GBPJPY, NZDUSD, etc. (we call them symbol or asset) For instance, you choose EUR/USD for trading. It means that if you buy EUR/USD, you should convert it to USD when you decide to sell the EURO. You are not allowed to change it to GBP or JPY. When you choose your asset to trade, you have two options for trading Buy/Sell. If you think EUR value will decrease against USD, you can sell EUR/USD, and if you think EUR value will increase against the USD, you can buy EUR/USD. 

 What is Options Trading and How to Start? 

On Options Trading, you can trade on Forex assets like EUR/USD or GBP/USD or USD/CHF, but you should predict the market aim when it looks like a bet on the Forex market! On Options Trading we say Call orders and Put orders. In fact, call on Options Trading means Buy and Put means Sell. There is two big difference between Forex market and Options market: 1-On Forex market you can hold your orders for a long time and close it every time that you like. But On Options Trading, you have an expiration time. You can’t close or modify your orders until expire time. 2- On the Forex market, your profit and loss is variable and depend on the market movement, but in Options Trading, your profit and loss are fixed. The Options broker offer you fixed return if you guess market movement correctly. For example, CloseOption.com offer you up to 85% on EURUSD if you think market movement accurately. Now maybe you think this is pure gambling system, and it’s not trading! Here I want to describe this question:
