I’m John. I’m a 35 year old from Toronto, Canada who makes a living trading binary options. I believe that I am one of the luckiest people alive.
Not many people get to pursue their hobby and passion as a career. I am not a millionaire or someone who aspires to have a lot of wealth. My main goal is to teach, communicate and learn from others. I am always trying to get better at everything I do in life, whether it is trading, video games or personal fitness.
I used to work for an IT sales company and while I enjoyed the communication I had with clients, the job itself was just that, a job. It got to the point where I just didn’t care anymore. I didn’t want to go into work and even worse, I felt myself losing passion.
I decided the best thing for me to do to instill some of this lost passion would be to take up a hobby. As someone who was always interested in trading I had a client turn me onto binary options. Next thing I knew I was having conversations with this client every second day and learning on the go.
My hobby quickly took over my life as I started reading books and forums, even when I was at work! It really wasn’t even the money that intrigued me with binary options trading, it was the thrill. It made me feel alive.
A year after I started trading I was making a sustainable enough income, so I quit my job.
The Reason Behind Binary Today?
With this blog, I want to be able to share my experiences and create an honest place for traders alike. I know that this website will benefit others but myself as well. Binary Today will keep me active in achieving my goals and let me communicate regularly with other traders. This will help me learn and grow as a trader, which is very important to me.
I plan on providing traders with what I have learned, what binary options software to trust, what brokers are secure and more.
If you are interested to follow my progress and take advantage of my knowledge, please sign up to be a Binary Today member and get free updates.
While many have abandoned the binary options market, Binary Today is still very active. Many traders were scared away for very good reason. There were many unscrupulous and unregulated brokers and trading products that lost traders a lot of money. Now, if those traders listened to the advice here, they would have been saved a lot of misfortune.
That being said, there are still ways to be profitable trading binary options. Traders can now utilize Forex brokers, and even trade binary options in MT4 which makes unregulated brokers a thing of the past.
All of the products that I recommend are signal systems, which means you can do whatever you want with the signals. You can place trades in MT4, or with your binary options broker, it’s totally up to you. Many of the readers here are with Binary.com, HighLow, Nadex, and a few other responsible platforms.
It’s certainly not the end of the road, it’s just time for traders to take a new path, and find new ways to succeed.
John, This is my first full day of demo account testing Binary Today Trader (BTT) and I am pleased with the results so far. My question to you is: I have lost both put and call trades when all four of the technicals in the Trade Assistant have agreed with the trade and have won trades when just the opposite situation occurred in the TA. Have you ever objectively measured the value of TA alignment with trade signals? Intuitively, it makes sense to be aligned but intuition is not a proven money maker! Let me know your thoughts please.
Hi Brian, the TA certainly plays a positive role for me in my trading. I’ve measured my success with and without it. If you have a different angle I do believe you should try it. Flushing out a personal strategy based on intuition is a great thing.
did you measure the value of the TA alignment with the trade signals? Do you know what the percentage of losses occur in TA when all 4 signals agree?
Hi Bella, that depends on the software and strategy that I’m using. I use the TA with many different binary trading methods.
I have opened my broker with binary book and they have confirmed am compliant .What next with trading and the bonus promised
Hi George, I’m not sure what this is regarding. I’m not associated with the broker you speak of and I don’t recommend taking bonuses.
Hi John, totally fascinated and interested in getting involved with binary options. This may be a silly question, but can I operate in the UK using your method and recommended binary software? Will the different time zone have an adverse effect in any way? Regards, Rob
Hi Rob, yes, my readers are from all across the world. My recommendations keep that in mind and monitor the markets in all trading sessions.
What does your experience say about Tradorax as a broker for USA ??? I do like tradelogic format. Thanks ..
Hi Harley, haven’t tested them yet, here is the current list https://binarytoday.com/best-binary-options-brokers/
Is there a way to paper trade before you go live to test the waters before I go live with real money?
Hi Scott, yes, you can go on any broker web-site and just test/mark down entry and exit prices.
Thanks for all the info! I work full time during the day. Are there enough signals to warrant trading in the evening?
Hi Scott, yes, the https://binarytoday.com/binary-brain-wave/ software provides signals on the 50 minute mark every hour so you would only have to check your computer 10-15 minutes a night to get signals.

WARNING: do not trade with BIG OPTION under any circumstances also Professional binary robot by GEORGE S this is also a complete SCAM. If you don’t listen to what I am saying say goodbye to your money.
Lately I’ve been hearing all binary brokers are scams and will never return money on a long term bases because they are run by casino regulations. I do recall a time back Lbinary customer service admitted this since being an American the SEC and Homeland security regulates securities here in the states. Nadex may be the only legitimate broker since it is American regulated. Any comments ??? Also, do you know anyone getting $1000 a month for an extended time ??? Sorry, for the length !!! I’m just in a quandary not knowing ….
Our recommended brokers are trustworthy, they are voted on by our readers. Outside of our recommendations there are a lot of scams.
Thanks John …. I guess consensus my be a way to filter. Brokers such as these have absolutely no obligation to return any gains. If casino regs did not control them then there profits would depend on a service and fees not bankrolling from clients. If I am wrong tell me my errors ….. Thank you ..
I just switched brokers to Boss Capital. I trade only the Asian and early London markets. Have noted Boss only gives only 15 min expirys during the Asian makets ?? I just asked customer service but was given a referral until next week. Have noted Yesoption having the same platform has all that is necessary for BoB, BBW, Sand BA. Comment ??
Hey traders…. I see many people asking for Beeoptions. Stay away…. Im waiting a few weeks for my withdrawal and then they kicked me out – Because im asking on the phone to often what happened with my money…. BAD !!
Sorry to hear that Rene.
I live in US. How do I get Beesoption to allow the minimum deposit you quote. I seem to be stuck with $500 without phone calls which I detest and will not do. Feedback ????.
Also, whatever happened to Tradorax as a recommended broker. Refresh rate is extremely fast. You should use ping test as a criteria when evaluating (Ping test network). Feedback???
Since your review I would like a response. There FAQ states $250. This is a problem with many European brokers. I do know I am dealing with different business practices; so my idea of fair play is based in US. Thanks …😎😎😎

Any comments on Marketsgear Signal service ???? Thanks …
Hey Harley, can’t say I’ve tested this one, I’ll ask around.
Is there any info available on the OZ ROBOT?
I’ll put up a review today. Looks just like any other free binary system though, I would avoid it.
Hi John and Ray
Just a little bit of information about OZ ROBOT for you.
I personally have been using binary options for a while now. I was self taught and obviously made a lot of mistakes at the start. However, over time my ‘predictions’ started to improve and I now have about a 75% success rate. In order to obtain this, I do spend a lot of time looking at the markets and my trades are few and far between. But being retired, I’m fortunate to be able to do this and of course I do it more for fun than trying to make a living out of it.
So when I heard about OZ ROBOT, an automated system that would basically do what I’ve been doing myself, I thought I’d give it a try.
What a disaster!! Out of 22 trades, it only won 7 and lost on 15. That’s a strike rate of less than 32%.
As you know, with binary options you basically have a 50/50 chance, so when a so called ‘expert’ gets twice as many wrong as right; it does make you wonder!
You have my email address John, so if you would like a copy of my OZ ROBOT account for your future reference, just email me.
Do I need a license to be a certified binary options traders, I don’t want to get into trouble that’s why I asked.
Not sure what this means, I don’t have any official certification, I just trade.
I have signed up with you but have not heard from you. You have a members area. How do I become a member? Thanks.
