Money Management Rules

As a binary options trader, you should always keep the risks in mind. This is why your investment amount should not exceed 2% of your account balance. Despite all our strategies being quite effective (around 65%-75% win rate), you should still stick to that 2% rule. To comply with this rule, however, you need to have an appropriate account balance, which should be at least 50 times bigger than the minimum investment amount allowed by the broker.
