Welcome Traders, This is Ashraf I am one of the top traders at Mike’s Facebook group. Many traders in the group follow my trading patterns and I decided to keep posting content for Mike and his website visitors. Today I will go over my Binary Options Swing Trading Pattern. First, this pattern is designed for hourly, 4 hours and end of day expiries. Do not use any of the tactics with short-term expiries and always test a new method or pattern using a free demo account as Michael Freeman suggests, especially if you are a beginner.

Disclaimer: This pattern was first posted on and a few blogs but Ashraf gave it his own touch. I encourage you to watch his unique video on this topic that’s posted on my channel.

The goal of this Swing trading pattern and method is practice is to take advantage of the market price swings. We use this method of trading only during high volatility conditions as a prerequisite.

THE INDICATORS: For the most part, we’re going to use the Bollinger Bands in order to determine the market direction and condition with the default settings.

MACD with settings of 3,11,16. As you can see, we are using an aggressive setting for the MACD Indicator in order to evaluate when the momentum starts.

   SMA – Simple Moving Average is set at a period of 3 which will be our trigger!


CALL SETUP: Price breaks above the middle Bollinger Band. The 3 period SMA breaks above the middle band. The MACD turns positive.

PUT SETUP: Price must break the middle Bollinger Band downwards. The 3 period SMA breaks below the middle band. The MACD turns negative.

EXPIRY TIMES: Trading off the 15 minute chart = one hour expiry. Trading off the 1 hour chart = 4 hours to end of day expiry.

Watch my complete video on the Binary Options Swing Trading Pattern for a complete illustration.

I also encourage you to check out my article titled ‘PSAR and ADX Combo Trading Pattern‘. Let’s sum it up, Swing trading is widely covered and used by binary options and FX traders but many times they don’t get the setting and the combination of indicators right. After using my Swing method for a very long time I can testify that my setting for the MACD, Bollinger Bands and SMA can provide you with some amazing trading opportunities. I also encourage you to check out some of the previous articles I’ve written for Mike and videos on Mike’s Binary Options YouTube channel. If you have any questions you are welcome to comment below this article and I will respond and also below the video on YouTube. Good luck with your trading and again, remember to test every binary options trading pattern using a demo account before you trade using a real live account.

    Hey thanks for posting this awesome strategy. I appreciate the fact that as a total newbie I can come on here, get some tactics, head on over to a demo account and give it a try to see if it works for me before throwing some money around.

    Why is this guy above mad about the fact that he paid 100 dollars for the strategy and now this author is giving away the information for free? I mean, I guess I’d be mad as well, but why not direct the anger at yourself for wasting 100 dollars instead of the poster?

    Glad to see the article posted, albeit a short one. I will be demo trading it today to give it a dress rehearsal, so to speak. And maybe someone should tell Ashraf about “spell check”!1

      Yes, the guy can’t spell but the video is great. Please everyone, do not write anything negative on Investoo, let it be. My decision to keep the content is now solid and if anyone has a problem, I’ll solve it for them. I respect Investoo for creating a nice blog and they have a lot of free stuff as well. I am glad to see that many people enjoyed the video on YouTube. It went pretty viral. Cheers! Mike

    Great and clear strategy as always on Michael’s website. Definitely trying it soon. Thx Ashraf.

    Regarding the “investoo controversy”, i invite everyone to watch the great documentary “The internet’s Own Boy” and everyone will understand that holding informations and knowledge from being public is the challenge of the decade.

    This being said, Michael, keep spreading so much knowledge around you, it’s your “brick to the wall” of Public access to informations fight.

    Strategies are not owned by anyone, No one owns the Bollinger Bands, Investoo… that was very low of you!! This is great strategy that must be shared!

  8. Timmy

    I agree, Investoo did not invent the bollinger band or the moving average. Also, I am quite sure that they do not have a trademark on the setup. If that was the case no one could trade using strategies. Anonymous, if you paid for this, you paid for not having to look it up yourself.

    Look, you can feel pissed off but none of the blogs out there invented swing trading .. so if you paid $100 for this strategy, it’s your own problem. Sorry to hear about it! Information like this should be offered for free.. so if they have any problems with us sharing this content, we might develop problems too. We’re not looking for problems and hopefully this article can help those who are interested to learn. This information is worded differently, structured completely different and we also included a video to illustrate how to use this binary options strategy in practice.

    Hello Michael,

    I sent the email about the Investoo strategies. I want to stay anonymous. And also I didn’t contact Investoo about it. I just pissed me off because I paid $100 for this and now this guy is sharing it for free. It just doesn’t work like that.

    The email I use is real if you want to contact me.
