When trading binary options there are two choices that the binary options trader must make. First of all the trader must select the investment amount. This is the amount that is placed on particular binary options trade. Next the binary options trader must to select the expiry time. This is the timeframe that the particular binary option will expire. Many brokers offer expiry times of one minute, five minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, and one hour.
