How we trade binary?
In our view, the price will continue downward if reach 1.2456 level and we would buy Put binary options at that level. If our first target is not reached and the price goes above 1.2501, the first scenario would be invalidated. We would buy Call options if a one hour candle opens and closes above the 1.2501 level.
Target price: 1.2456
