Binary Options Trading Monitor (8/6/10): CSCO Put Buying

|Includes:Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO)

The Binary Options Trading Monitor highlights traditional options trading of the underlying assets currently available on the leading binary options trading platforms. With a focus on short-term activity, binary options traders can use this intelligence to gauge stock sentiment and help assess potential stock movement in the coming weeks.

Notable Options Trading:

Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) – Bearish: Investors used the traditional options market to purchase weekly CSCO options ahead of the company’s 4Q earnings release next week. 7k August 23 puts were purchased for approximately $0.26. Investors would need shares of CSCO to fall by over 5.5% by Friday for the trade to yield a profit. CSCO binary options can be traded on the StartOptions platform.

Binary Options Weekly:

This week in the Binary Options Weekly we discuss how to avoid turning winning trades into losers. We suggest alternative methods of increasing your trade size of seemingly profitable trades without sacrificing entire gains.  The risk profile presented by most binary options trading platforms is slanted in favor of the house so it is in our best interests to be aggressive when trades are going our way (firmly in the money), take small losses when we lose and most importantly avoid turning winning trades into losers. Contrary to popular belief this can be done in binary options trading with smart hedging tactics we outline in the Binary Options Weekly.
