Trading GBPJPY Binary Option

Every once in a while Binary Option traders make a mistake. This time the trade taken hasn’t been done in several months. We usually look at the euro and the pound dollar, but this time we saw a nice set up on the up pound yen. The price came up to the pivot point at just the right time to take a put option. Once the trade was entered the concern set in pretty quick.

After the trade was entered at 9:15 this morning we realized shortly after that the expiration time was at 9:45 AM. We then realized that a 15 min. expiration trade turned into a 30 minute expiration trade. The good news about this mistake was that in the 15 minutes from the point of entry the close of the trade would have given us a 12 to 15 pip winner. The better news is when the trade completely ended at 9:45, the trade was in our favor by a significant amount, giving this put option a win.

Mistakes that traders make happen all the time. This one was no excuse, but when you have a lot of things going on you really need to pay attention to certain things, like expiration times and price levels. Fortunately we were able to escape this trade with a solid winner based on our original trading idea around the pivot.
