It seems, based strictly on the financial picture before us, that we are on the precipice of something historic in size and breadth. With the geo-political tensions running higher than they have been in decades, it’s easy to see how this can make a dramatic impact on the way investors are trading these days. The volatility levels have never been higher and it’s fairly clear that the US stock indices aren’t able to handle it. This past Friday, the US stock indices dropped again. After making some headway earlier in the week, all hope was venerably lost on Friday when the S&P fell 0.81% to 1863. The fact that the S&P has been unable to pass the 1900 level should mean more trouble to come for the index. So what are the binary options traders of the world to do?

Looking at the day or possibly the entire week ahead, it’s fairly clear to see that it’s going to be a wild one. We have loads of news ready to be released this week that could shed some light on the course the US stock markets will be able to take. Sure, the earnings season looked to be able to push things in the right direction, but it’s simply not enough for the market which is seemingly in a state of needing much more to get the trend back on track to the upside.

The impending danger associated with the East of Ukraine and American troops being sent to Eastern Europe is a first sign of things to come. Pro-Russian rebels are holding European monitors in eastern Ukraine. On Sunday it was made clear that they are freeing one of the monitors but have been quoted as stating that they had no plans to release any of the other seven.

Add to this possible negative reactions to the peace talks in the middle east. Small as they are, the Israeli and Palestinian peace talks could themselves drag the world back into a violent cycle of endless blood shedding. This usually leads to a major drag on markets and it’s difficult to see how a handshake with a recognized terrorist regime, Hamas, will somehow, bring anything but the most sarcastic of statements.

Add Chinese and North Korean issues and you get a world wide spectrum of worry and concern and it all has a pertinent and profound impact on the state of affairs for binary options traders. But speaking strictly locally, at the daily scope of things, binary options traders. Forex will be the first focus for traders with the EUR/USD trading near 1.3823 and within a very tight range. This bounded trading will not remain in place for very long and binary options traders will need to weight the risk warnings from the geo-political arena alongside the charts. Looking at the 5 minute charts for the day, binary options traders should try to focus on the 1.3842 level as the resistance and support at 1.3817.

As COO of GOptions, my first and foremost goal is to provide traders with the most up to date info from the markets. I have been trading the markets since 2004 and have been involved with stocks, binary options, and forex trading since then. I have had no formal market education and pride myself on a self taught approach to everything related to trading. I try to focus though on both the technical and fundamental aspects related to each trading day and bring forward the most important aspects of risk/reward in the market.
