Martingale system

60 seconds trading for binary options is very popular at the moment so I decided to show you a smart way how to make profit out of it.

Not many brokers are good enough for this strategy so better follow my recommendations and you will be on the safe side.

To succeed with this strategy you will need to do some math calculations on your investments and profits. You have to think fast because the market is volatile and situation changes in minutes. Prepare yourself for losses as they are part of the game but if you are experienced enough you will always be on profit.

The strategy method

The method on this strategy is based on a math formula that guarantees profits even when your trades expire out of the money. When you decided trading 60 seconds binaries you should have already considered how to deal whit losses. I have been trading for some years now and the following strategy is proven to be working.

So what is the idea behind – if you win keep trading on the same stake – when you lose move to the next level.

60seconds method

As you see on the table my first investment would be $50 with a 70% return so a successful trade will bring me $35 profit.

70% is a standard payout which brokers pays on 60 seconds trading

Let’s say I have lost the first 3 trades = ($50+$121+$294) = $465 minus in my balance

If I win the 4th trade = $499,8 profit which will cover my previous losses + $34,8 on top

The asset’s price always change (Up/Down) so you just need to keep trading in one direction (High or Low) and a successful trade will follow. Even if you lose 3-4 trades on the 5th you will be on profit $34,8.

How to set up your own strategy

First you have to define your initial investment and then divide the return by 0,7 to figure out the 2nd investment.

For example: you want to start with a $10 trade

1st Investment = $10
Payout = 70%
Return = $10x1,7 = $17

2nd investment = 17/0,7 = $24

This way you will calculate the 3rd, 4th and 5th investment.

If your payout is 80% you will have to divide return by 0,8.

How to perform on this strategy

The two most important things about this strategy:

1. Opening an account at a broker which offers flexible investments on 60 seconds trading.
2. Handling a chart platform with 1 min time frames.

60seconds broker

Ok, I already have an account at an appropriate binary broker which allows investments from $24 up to $50.000 on a single 60 second trade. I am continuously buying only Low options on EUR/USD.

60seconds proven

On the one minute chart you see where I entered the market. As I am buying Low options I would need a red candle for my trade to close in the money. Let’s analyze what happened that day.

First trade was in = $35 profit
Second trade the price opened and closed on the same level = stake return
Third trade was out = minus $50 (means I have to move to 2nd level)
4th = $84,7 profit
5th = minus $121
6th = $205,8 profit
7th = $205,8 profit
8th = $205,8 profit

At the end I won 5 trades, lost 2, and 1 was neutral. That means a total profit of $566,1 which I made in 8 minutes.

As you see on the chart going for a 9th trade would be also in the money but it is too risky. My aim is to close 2-3 successful trades when I am on 3rd or 4th level of investment and then I am out.

This strategy is recommended to implement when the market is choppy. You have to avoid big trends such as 10-12 red/green candles. My final word is: get into the market while it is choppy and get out after the 3rd successful trade in a row.

There are many binary brokers offering 60 seconds trading but only a few will allow you flexible investments. You have to find the best broker which will fit your trading strategy.

The martingale system is not recommended. It is a casino system. We created a better 60 seconds strategy You can try it and share your feedback.

Yes this strategy is very risky in that all it takes is three or four losses in a row and you will be suffering massive losses that can wipe out your account. I think the best time to use this strategy is not when the market is choppy, but when the market is trending is only one directions. For example, if the price is trending up, keeping buying Calls for every trade. A choppy market will only increase your chance of getting a losing trade and getting multiple losses in a row. While an upward trending market, for example, will increase your chances of winning on a Call trade most of the time.

60 seconds trading strategy is quite tempting to try it out as it pays instantly. I have been hearing positive feedback about it from my friends who are into binary options, but it looks very difficult for me. This probably works well with those who want instant gratification and are adapted to day trading stress. You have to be thoroughly knowledgeable to try 60 seconds, though. I believe the 60 sec strategy is not yet for me as I am new to binary option. Maybe when I am more confident I’m gonna use this one.

Yep, you are right, better try it first on a demo account before blowing your cash in 60 seconds ;)

I made almost $2000 in a couple of 60 seconds sessions using this strategy but it was a pure luck because of the market fluctuations recently in AUDUSD. Most probably I wouldn't use it again as it is too much stressful and you can blow away all your account in a few minutes. Just keep in mind that if you would go try it use 24option their platform is really fast and I don't see any delays.

Isn't it 60 seconds more gambling than trading?

60 seconds trading has its advantages and disadvantages. The cons are probably much more as the payout is only 70% and it is hard to determine the movement of a price over an extremely short time-frame. To use 1 minute chart leads to poorer statistics than longer term charts, the technical indicators will be helpless. It is very important that your trading platform is regulated and works properly at executing and closing trades and not prone to re-quotes, spreads need to be as low as possible. Many, many things you need to consider before start trading 60 seconds. But it is definitely worth a try and if the profits roll in, then by all means go ahead with it.

In my opinion is pure gambling using 60 seconds binary options just because the odds are not in your favor. In fact you lose more when you are OTM then you win when ITM, which is about 15% to 30%. This infers that over the long run you will simply lose out.
