  • So, how can you capitalize from the moves of these without actually investing in them? One answer is through binary options.

    What Are Binary Options?

    Investing via binary options is just that: playing a binary event. “Binary options are limited risk contracts based on a simple yes/no market proposition like will the markets go up by the end of the trading week,” binary options trading site Nadex explained.

    However, the key to understanding binary options is grasping that since there are only two possible outcomes, investors can make a specific, predetermined amount, or lose 100 percent of their investment.

    Trading DAX Index Futures

    There is a way to capitalize from the moves of the DAX Index futures without directly investing in the actual futures contracts. By purchasing binary options, investors can play something as simple as, “Will the index future trade above 10,800 points this week?”

    For investors thinking the answer is yes, buying the binary options might be the way to go. For those thinking the response is no, selling could be a better idea.
