Binary options trading will be focused on the high rising stock prices in Asia and in the US. With the US markets heating up since last week, it’s no surprise that binary options traders have taken notice as they prepare for yet another strong day ahead. It just so happens that it’s the last day of the week, but as recent memory serves, Fridays have been consistently solid for US markets. Although there is no correlation and no basis for it, let’s call it the X factor that could end up pushing markets even further up the rungs to ever higher levels. Looking at the US stock markets, it’s clear to see that the trend is back higher, with Federal Reserve backed stimulus or not.

With Yellen backing Bernanke’s last act as Chairman of the Fed by tapering the stimulus program, it was expected that US stocks would start heading down or at least suffer at the hands of formidable resistance. But that has obviously been tossed aside. The entire notion of worry or concern as it relates to the lack of stimulus has been pushed aside completely and markets have primarily focused on fair news coming out of the economy. The US economy has shown itself some decent outcomes for the results of publication of the economic indicators. Yesterday’s news was rather mixed, with the CPI and initial jobless claims coming out in or around the expected levels. However, the releaser of the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index came in disastrously low. It’s not a very important indicator and the fact that the majors were seen in line with expectations, calmed nerves and allowed traders to focus on stocks and other assets who have shown some amazing results of late.

Facebook for example, is just such a case. As we explained yesterday, the media giant purchased WhatsApp for a simply incredible figure of 19 billion USD. This equates to over $40 per user of the mobile app. Just note, that’s more than the value of Facebook’s own per-user value (around $34). In addition, the market finds the move of actually purchasing such an asset a bit disconcerting in regards to the fact that it might show the cracks within the structure of Facebook itself. After all, if growth were really in the cards, why need such a bet? Answer, you’d probably not need it. But the market doesn’t’ seem to mind…for now. In after-market trading 2 days ago, the market pushed the stock 2.3% downwards as could be expected considering the amount of money and stock leaving for the purchase of the new asset. Amazingly enough though, the market must really love this move for FB as yesterday, in the first day the full market could react to the news, the market headed higher. The stock price actually finished at 69.63, up 2.31%.

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.
