To earn a profit the investor needs to be "in the money" by at least 0.001. Being 'in the money' means the difference in the value of the asset and the strike price of the call option is in favor of the trader.

2. Look for a platform that offers a return even for 'out of the money' results. It is disappointing to lose money, so a trader should look for a platform that offers some sort of payment even for negative outcomes. There are not many that do so but some of the platforms that do, offer up to 15 percent return on "out of the money" results.

3. Traders and investors should make sure that the platform they choose offers a variety of assets. Traders can now easily keep up with the movement of assets via the internet, business news channels and the papers. So a platform that offers a great selection of assets gives the trader better opportunities to make a profit.

4. Binary options platforms will charge some sort of a 'joining' fee, but the trader needs to careful of sites with hidden costs on other services which may pop up after they have started using the platform. So investors should make sure to inquire about all fees and additional costs before joining. Reputed platforms will have a page dedicated to this on their website.

5. It is very important that the binary options platform has good security measures in place. With such a lot of money being moved, traders should make sure to check out what kind of security measures and encryption the site uses to guard against online theft.

6. Traders also need look for platforms that have good customer support in place. Whether new or experienced at online trading, an investor might sometimes need technical or other assistance, so there should be a good customer support service to advise and help clients when required.
