Trading Higher Lower Binary Options – Deriv

Binary Options Higher lower type of trade is for pro traders where you can earn a standard profit with a carefully selected strategy. The higher lower type of binary trade provides profits ranging from 23% to 350% return on investment.

Trade Duration:

You can set trade duration in two ways, either you can set a fixed expiry time for your trade as “End time” or you can set a specific type of time units like “Tick”, “Seconds”, “Minutes”, “Hours”, “Days”.


Next, you need to select a barrier. You can define the barrier positively or negatively. “Plus” sign before the barrier x amount means, from the current price plus x amount. A “minus” sign before the barrier x amount means, from the current price minus x amount.

Look at the example below:
Say, the barrier is +2.39
The current symbol price is 7130.10
Trade duration: 5 ticks
Then if we select higher with a barrier of +2.39 that means if the market stays between entry + the barrier price: 7130.10+2.39 = 7102.39 until the end of the trade, then we will win the trade.

Strategy – Lower Return – Lower Risk

This is the easiest method to gain constant profit with lower risk. This strategy works with the basic trend analysis.

If the market is rising up or in an uptrend trend or you know that the instrument or currency will move a certain amount within a limited time, then you can place the “Higher” trade with a barrier.

If the market is falling down or in a downtrend trend or you know that the instrument or currency will move a certain amount within a limited time, then you can place the “Lower” trade with a barrier.

Following trend:
For trend following, we are using Bollinger bands. We used our trend dashboard to view current charts trend for the selected instruments like “USDJPY”.

Introducing ATR (Average True Range):

ATR indicator shows the average price movement under a certain period. The importance of ATR in Binary options higher and lower is knowing if you select 5 minutes of trade time, when how much o average a specific instrument can move during that time.

In the above picture, we have displayed the Average True Range for the 5 minutes chart. ATR showing 2, which means on an average per 5 minutes, USDJPY can move 2 pips. So we have to place a barrier within 2 pips.

Check the video posted at the top. Here in the picture above, we have added a Bollinger band on the Deriv chart for instant analysis.

Sell trades early exit:

With this method, you can close your trade before expiry. Sometimes if you think that market is going against your trade entry point. Then you can close that trade with the sell option. But sell option availability depends on the market condition.

If you sell the trade, then you can get some percentage return of your capital rather than losing the whole money.

Strategy – High Return – Sharp Entry

With this strategy, you can make a higher return, but the trade risk will also be higher than as usual. Plus there, will not be much consistency in winning, but once you spot a good signal, that will compensate all of your losses with one winning trade.

Trend Reversal:
You will earn a higher return if you trade against the current trade. If the current market is upward, and you place a sell trade, downward against the trend. Then you will see, it’s providing you the highest return.

This situation can only occur when you get an early signal on trend change. Suppose the market is moving upward and you know that the nearest point is a resistance level. The market might reverse back from that level. So you can advance place a sell trade or place lower trade on that level, only if the market shows some reaction.

Because sometimes the market breaks out any resistance levels if the current uptrend is strong.

In the example above, we can see in the minute chart, market is trending down. Therefore “lower” trade had only a 48% return. But “higher” binary trade had a 187% return.

Now, if we consider that at the current price point, there is a bounce up area, then we can place a “higher” trade with a trade duration of 1-5 minutes. This trade will give us a good return. But such a situation will occur less frequently. Therefore trading selectively, in this case, is highly recommended. Choose only the best possible trades.

One note, don’t forget to use ATR along with it. Because ATR finally decides what will be the barrier amount. The rest of the indicators indicates trends only.

Money management – Ending Notes:

Money management is the key here. Make sure you maintain a fixed amount per trade. Otherwise, unbalancing the lot size on each losing trade to recover losses is not a good idea. Check the link below to learn more about money management strategies.
