15 Minute Trading Pattern for Binary Options

Finding an appropriate trading pattern to implement at times can be difficult, especially when trading binary options.  I have been trying to compose a reliable 15 minute trading pattern for awhile and I feel like I finally came up with one.  It requires only the use of two indicators and it is very easy to set up, in addition out of the last 500 demo trades I have seen a success rate of about 76% in-the-money.

Setting Up Your Charting Page

Properly setting up your charting solution is often overlooked and oftentimes not done correctly.  I think you would be amazed by how many emails I receive over the smallest of problems, and mostly it all comes down to not setting up the charting solution correctly.  I prefer to use www.freestockcharts.com as my charting solution of choice but MT4 is also a great software to use when trading online.  Moving forward, after the page has downloaded, I select one of my targeted assets which I will discuss in more detail down below and I will switch my time frame to 15 minutes.  Now you need to click on Add Indicator, once you have scroll down and select Moving Linear Regression and it should add to your chart.  Now go back to add indicator, scroll down to Moving Average and select it and add it to your chart.  Now you need to right click on the indicator portion and change the settings which can be done by clicking edit, and change the default period of 50 to 10 and select done.  Once all that is done you are good to go!


How To Apply 

When trading this 15 minute pattern we only want to select high volume stocks or popular, low volatility currency pairs.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with volatility it simply means the likelihood that an asset will change directions in a short amount of time.  Therefore assets that have a high volatility will often change directions even due to the smallest of market changes so we want to choose assets that have a low volatility because they are easier to predict.  Stocks that we should consider trading would be Apple, Nike, McDonalds, Exxon and Amazon.  While currency pairs we should trade are Eur/Usd, Usd/Cad, Nzd/Usd, and Usd/Chf.

In the picture below you can see an example of how we would use this trading pattern and you can see how simplistic it is.  The red line is our moving linear regression indicator while the blue is our simple moving average line.  This trading pattern only requires the use of one step to occur and that would be a cross between our moving linear regression indicator with our moving average indicator.  If our blue line crosses our red line in a downward direction then we place a PUT trade for 15 minutes and vice versa for the opposite direction.  You don’t need to wait for any confirmation unless you want too but usually I do not.  The yellow stars indicate around where the trade would expiry, as you can see all three trades ended up as winners.

This Binary Options 15 Minute Trading Pattern is simple and highly accurate.  It can be applied by traders of all experience levels due to its simplicity and high success.  Also checkout my powerful 5 minute trading pattern for binary options! If you have any questions about the indicators or how to properly apply please feel free to leave a question or comment below!  Best of luck trading!

    Hi Tim,

    I’m a new trader what exactly is paper trading?
    By the way great articles haven’t tried any on a demo account yet, there is so much to learn thanks to you and Mike.

    Keep up the great work.

    Hey Stefan,

    That is what is suppose to happen Stefan. We are waiting for a cross to occur between our two lines, they shouldn’t move in tangent with one another, not ever. By tangent I mean the exact same length path as the other line. The cross occurring and then heading off in opposite directions are suppose to happen.

    Hello Tim! I’m still trading on a demo account with TopOption although you have to open a live account to get one, but that’s not my question. I’ve been watching your 15 min trading strategy, with the same set-up as you specified, but when the moving average (set at 10) crosses the moving lin reg (set at 30) it goes the opposite way…
    Can you help me out? Thanks for your advice.

    I just want to thank you Tim for this strategy. I went live today with it and it is killing it!!!!! 6 and 1 so far. You are truely a GOD send. I hope to one day be financially free so I can develop some strategys and give back like you!!! THANKS AGAIN!!!

    Hey Soeren,

    You can either wait for a confirmation candle to occur where you can place your trade or you can just go for the trade. Ideally, waiting for a confirmation would be best but it is not necessary! Hope this helped!

    Hi Tim,

    thank you for sharing your strategies dude!!! Got a short question on this one, if the blue line crosses the red one, do you immediately place the trade or wait for the current candle to finish? thank you! Soeren

    Thanks for your quick and informative response.

    Talking about testing strategies, I probably will stick with paper trade, I have lost already some ammount of money on silly(idiotic) ways trying yo make money.

    But, when you paper trade, how exactly to do you record the expiration price

  10. Tim Lanoue

    Hey Pedro,

    To be honest, I hardly use this strategy, the trading strategy that I use the most would honestly have to be Price Action but it also the most difficult to understand and requires the use of no trading indicators. However, when I was testing my strategy out I was, on average, probably placing around 8-10 trades per day, averaging 80-100 trades per week.

    The main assets that I watched and traded when using this strategy as well was the Eur/Usd, Usd/Chf, and Apple, I like to stick to 3 or 4 main assets to trade from.

    Well, testing your strategies can be relatively simple, I prefer to use paper trading where you enter the rate of the asset when you started your initial investment and then you record the expiration time. However, you can use brokers that only require a minimum of $5 per trade as well so you don’t lose too much money if you are just testing it out. Finding a broker that offers a demo account can be difficult and just takes some searching around, more often than not though you will have to sign-up and deposit with a broker first before your demo account can become active. Whereas with paper trading you would not have to do that, it just really depends if you would want to get started with a broker or not.

    As far as returns, I feel like a lot of it is based on how determined you are to make it in trading binary options. There is a lot to learn but if you are hungry and motivated enough and you use the strategies that are provided on this website along with using trusted brokers that are also recommended on this site then I see no problem on easily seeing returns on 200-500% of your initial investment amount.

    I hope this helped and you asked some really great questions, thank you for that!

    Hi, I have a couple of questions.

    How often during the day or week do you find good spots to trade with this strategy in 1 pair Eg. EUR/USD?
    How many pairs/assests should I keep an eye in order to have more volume?

    How can I test my strategies or find a broker which offers me a demo account?
    What kind of return can I expect as a beginner in the first months?

    Mike-you and Tim are #1 wonders of this world. Glad at 87 I found you. My life’s dream has been to leave my extended family well-to-do. Now I can.

    Thanks for the wonderful job you are doing. Affecting lives in your own way. Kudos!! The screenshot you used as an example, it seems you did not use the settings for the blue and red lines you recommended. Your moving line regression (red line) seems to be set at 30 and the other seems to be set at 14. The EUR?USD time interval for your example is also set at 15min which you did not mention. Which settings should we follow please?

  15. mark

    mving lineair regression does not seem to exsist on the mt4 platform. Where to find it?

  17. Tim Lanoue

    Hey Filando and Papa Romeo,

    Filando: My living comes from trading binary options and I am always hungry for trying to find and compose new strategies that can help not only myself but others achieve their goals in the hopes that they will better succeed. I spend around 12-16 hours per day trading but mostly composing new strategies. I hope these have been able to help you out and succeed!

    Papa Romeo: The settings I think I mentioned above but the simple moving average is set at a period of 10 and the moving linear regression is set at a period of 30, which is also the indicators default setting.

    Hopes this helps guys and stick around for more articles to come!

  18. Papa Romeo

    What are the settings for both the indicators? thanks.

  19. Filando
