How we trade binary
The pair GBP/USD may fall to the level of 1.2392, after the formation of a false breakdown it can resume the growth. To buy Call options after the breakdown of 1.2443 can be a bad idea. We would buy Put options after the unsuccessful attempt to fix above 1.2443. This scenario would be invalidated if the pair goes above 1.2445 in which case we would go for Call option with the end of the expiry.
Target price: 1.2443
