Dukascopy gives binary options traders, in every trade, the right to select between predefined sets of Payout/Refund combinations. Combinations alternatives are : 90%/0% , 85%/5% , 80%/10% , 75%/15% , and 70%/20%.
For some traders it is puzzling. Traders may ask: which ratio is better to choose? Is it just a matter of personal preference and risk tolerance? Do all ratios have the same profit potential in the long run? If no, which ratio is more profitable? In this article we will try to answer these questions and help binary options traders to make a clear and intelligible choice.
P.S. If at any time you feel that you don't like the math details, you can directly jump to the article conclusion.
What are Dukascopy payout / refund ratios?
Binary options payout ratio (90%, 85%, 80%, 75%, and 70%) refers to the percentage of your initial investment amount you will win if your prediction turns out to be correct and your option expires "in the money".
Whereas the binary options refund ratio, also known as "Return on loss" (0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20%) refers to the percentage of your initial investment that you recover even if you traded in the wrong direction. You can get this partial…

Introduction
This is a quick conclusion of previous article series titled "The Fifth Element (part 1-2-3)" where I exposed how I made an automated strategy working in semi-automation and using it just as a visual reminder of possible good trade events, and implementing a widget in a chart to immediatly buy/sell an instrument with pre-fixed SL/TP orders and size. Here you find links to previous series "The Fifth Element".
As you may know, I'm not (yet) an expert Java programmer, and as a great beginner I did some minor errors, indeed the code was working but not perfectly. In this quick article, which opens to my next presentations as well, I am only exposing how I solved these minor issues and how I took the opportunity to add some few improvements, (the sixth indeed).
Configurables

Trading with MAs is one of the most simple and various ways traders use to detect a price direction, and due to the vast amount of different MA settings, I decided to make it personalizable when strategy starts. But as always once I did this, I realized it would be better to personalize almost…

In this article, I’m going to share with you a little secret of mathematics and risk management. I formulated a simple law that expresses a win-win situation in risk management coming from risk/reward ratio analysis and the different mathematical outcomes and ideas that spiral off these simple and yet powerful notions. As we all know, good trading comes from the triple intersection between good trade location, good risk management and your ability to master yourself. This tripod cannot function properly if one of the elements is out of balance. So, in here I’m going to give you the key and some wise concepts about the second element: risk management. If you apply these principles, you’ll notice that your trading will become more solid and consistent over time. Also, you’ll have the ability to be wrong in your trading decisions most of the time and still come out with a little profit or at least breakeven. By having that in the back of your mind, you'll be able to eliminate some of the bad emotions about trading like risk aversion and the desperate need for absolute accuracy all the time. Before we worry about how much precise we can be with out strategy with need a insurance pla…

Nice article +

I would concentrate on risk management in the charts rather than risk management on the capital. Its almost garanteed for a newcomer to loose its capital anyway. I would suggest to focus on price action trading - sort out the KEY levels which to bet against and manage the risk acording to support/resistance

I agree. You have to focus on price action to get good trade location. However, in this article I'm just talking about risk management and how it can give you peace of mind in relation to risk taking. I am talking about risk management in the charts and in the capital.. Bottom line, I just proved mathematically which risk/reward levels you should srtive for in order to have an statistical edge over time. Sure you'll need trade location, but that's a different animal. I'm just talking about capital protection over time and consistency.

Statistical edge is sure the necessary thing, but with bad entries/exits - it wont help anyway:) Piece of mind comes with understanding of what you doing (understanding what market movers are doing) - not just putting less of your equity on single trade. And on stressfull conditions one is surelly analysing PA more closely - so its not a bad thing - you dount need to avoid stress - it makes your iron harder:)))

Likerty avatar
Likerty 21 Sep.

I agree on your points here, but What I'm trying to say is that most of newcomers are way undercapitalised to be able to adopt text-book money/risk management and because of lack of understanding what PA is doing - they will lose anyway.. So, in the end - after loosing several deposits, if one still has any motivation left - the only way to make up in this business is to analyse hard the PA and try to make more than loose..

Hello dear members Dukas community, first of all, I want to wish to everyone, a happy 2013, which this year be full of many pips "blue" for all. This month I return to articles, and once again within the philosophy of negotiating with simplicity. I bring you another strategy that already use a few years ago, call it FiboDec_System. For this strategy, we will use graphs 1 hour time frame. The analysis should be performed between 18 and 23:00 GMT, and my experience tells me that analyzes at 18:00 may translate into better results, however later analysis also show very interesting perform. This system should be divided into a few distinct stages, namely: 1) Determination of maximum and minimum of the last 24 hours 2) Application of Fibonacci_Dec (Fibonacci custom which is divided into tenths) 3) Determination of scenario / predominant trend 4) Definition of possible scenarios Having said this, I try to describe each of these steps so in summary form, to anyone of you could try this system. MAX vs. MIN The first thing to do is determine the maximum and minimum which occurred in the last 24 hours or since the last review. We'll need these values ​​when we make the application of our Fib…

I like this approach but I would add common mathematical proportions - 25 %, 75, 125, 175 etc..

If you so much like mathematical proportions, I would recommend you to work over Murray Math SR levels. These are a must in my personal trading system.
