You need to ensure that you are picking the best signals service for what your needs are. We have already spoken a bit about this, but you need to know what you’re looking for and then pick the specific type of signals service that addresses those needs best. Whether you are an expert binary options trader or a brand new one, there is a service out there that can help you.
The wrong binary options signal service can hinder your trading on many levels. Looking at the most severe examples, you will lose the subscription money that you paid in order to utilize the service, plus whatever trades are made for you, or whatever bad trades you made from the poor data supply. This is a worst case scenario and it can happen to anyone, regardless of whether you live in Australia, the United States, or somewhere else. If you do fall for something like this, monitoring your account will quickly put an end to the problem. You don’t want to fall for something like this, but if you do, all hope is not lost. Cancel your subscription and move on. A successful trader will make up for their losses over time.
Next, let’s look at a signal service that is completely free to use for Australian traders. Sounds great, right? Well, yes, getting something of a high quality for free is great, but if it’s not a high quality, you are going to end up losing money over the long run. Think about it this way: you sign up for a free signals service but you are only getting 5 signals per day, 4 of which are correct, on average. That’s perfectly find, and you are going to turn a profit on this. But you’re still losing out on opportunities. At an 80 percent rate of return on $100 per trade, you are making $220 per day. Not too shabby. But if you had a paid service and you were receiving 20 signals per day with the same correct trade rate (4 wrong, 16 right), if you risked the same amount per trade you would make $880 per day instead. That’s far superior. Even if there was a $5,000 per year subscription cost for this service, it would easily pay for itself. In fact, you could make up the cost for this service in less than a month given the trade frequency listed above. Free is not always better.
It is also really important to be sure that you are using the service correctly. If you are using an alert service incorrectly, and not acting quickly on the information that you are given, then it shouldn’t be a surprise if you are losing money. With an alert service, it is especially important that you have a way to trade from your smartphone so that you are always able to execute trades when they are at their most profitable, even if you are out of the house or away from the computer for some reason. Know which kind of service will help you out the most so that you can use it to enhance your trading success, not increase the costs associated with it.
Sometimes you have to find out the hard way. Don’t get frustrated by it. As a final word of warning, we want you to be on the lookout for scams. They are rare, but they are out there. Whenever you are considering using a new signals service, always do your homework. Read reviews, make sure that the person you are sending your money to is a legit business and not just a Ponzi scheme, and then look at any testimonials that you can get your hands on when it comes to results. The few hours you spend researching a signals service will go a long way toward ensuring your continued success going into the future.
