BTG Pactual, considered one of the main Investment Banks in Latin America citation needed , has the following financial results (2014):
Bloomberg L.P. reported that “In three separate cases since 1999, Brazil’s central bank and securities commission alleged Pactual had illegally transferred profits to foreign funds to disguise gains and avoid taxes.” 13 In the last case, Pactual was ordered to pay 4 million reais, in addition to the fines charged to the bank partners themselves. 13
BTG Pactual is formed by two joint controlling subgroups: Banco BTG Pactual and BTG Pactual Participations. The latter is the managing partner and controller of BTG Investments.

Founded in 1873 in the city of Lugano, BSI is a financial institution specialized in wealth management for private and corporate clients. The operation, considered the biggest in the banking sector in 2014, is in the process of being approved by the regulatory authorities. BSI´s brand and identity will be maintained and it will become the global asset management platform of BTG Pactual. citation needed
Option myths probably started in 1635 when Dutch investors bought call options on exotic tulip bulbs. Some people made paper fortunes without ever taking possession of the beautiful bulbs. When tulip prices collapsed a few years later, so did the Dutch economy, and the once valuable options became worthless. Many investors blamed options for their losses.
In other words, you can design option strategies from conservative to risky, and in many cases, they are less risky than trading stocks. For example, one of the biggest advantages to investing in options is that you often know in advance how much you could lose if you’re wrong.
There’s an incorrect belief that selling options is nearly risk-free. “Although selling options to collect cash looks safe,” Wolfinger said, “selling ‘naked’ or uncovered options is a risky strategy because there is unlimited risk.” Wolfinger said that while option sellers can win most of the time, the occasional losses can be devastating when inexperienced investors don’t manage risk properly.
The difficult part is that options can be used in extremely complex strategies with sexy-sounding names. If you’re a beginner, it’s best to stick with relatively simple strategies such as selling covered calls on stocks you already own.
After all, another myth is that someone has a secret. The only secret to making profits in the options market is hard work, discipline, having a plan, and learning how to accurately price options.
While some think that options are too difficult, others believe it’s easy.
On the other hand, selling covered calls reduces risk because you already own the stock. “What you lose is the opportunity to make a pile of money,” Wolfinger said about covered calls. “It may result in a lost opportunity on a big rally, but that is not a loss. And if the stock tumbles, the covered call owner loses less than the stockholder.”
It’s not 1635 anymore, so let’s take a look at five of the most common option myths:

I did have some success with my logic on what side to pick earlier in the week:
So, I plan to buy a bull spread as close to floor as I can. Buy going long near the floor, I will know my risk up front and be OK with losing it all. But, I will also know that the trade could deliver some outstanding reward if I pick correctly. I think knowing your risk is preset is a key reason to trade NADEX anyway.
I put on a bull spread and a binary in the same direction--short USD/CAD. The risk on the binaries was right around $500 and the binary was right around $70. My direction on this trade was wrong. So, I lost about $570 total on my positions.
I will be adding more. The sites above do have the marks of affiliate/platform running about them. From further digging I am about 99% certain of my convictions in terms of who runs the sites. Not to say you shouldn’t trade at these places, but let’s just put it this way. Any waste of my time, in terms of trying to get the real truth about any given subject, ESPECIALLY trading, seriously pisses me off. The sites above truly in my eyes as a personal opinion, are just a simple complete waste of time.
But, seriously, the sites above….. If the owners/creators/operators of them are reading this, in the words of a great crazy trader friend of mine Mr Mucky, go suck my toe!
Truly there is nothing worse than having your time wasted when reading a particular review/non biased view on a trading platform. What I am referring to here, are the so called “Review” websites out there.
Now to deal with the platform run sites. This really really makes me a very angry Englishman indeed. Unfortunately there are no online laws that stand in the way of any given platform creating an online alias and providing biased/misguided information in regards to their particular platform. These sites always filter all the comments in the forums they have or just simply monopolize the information they provide, to essentially push the traffic through to them no matter what. Again, a big fat bloody waste of time and in my eyes it is like someone taking a piss on my bed. It is out of order and just so wrong!
According to the Bank for International Settlements, average daily forex trading in April 2016 (most recent data available) was $5.1 trillion. Of this, spot trading made up $2.6 trillion. The rest was trading in foreign exchange derivatives.
Traders still speculate in the forex market though. In May 2015, four banks (Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland) admitted to rigging foreign exchange rates. They join UBS, Bank of America and HSBC, who have already admitted to price fixing and colluding with each other to manipulate foreign exchange rates. The investigation is related to the Libor investigation. (Source: "Banks Near Settlement in FX Probe," Wall Street Journal, May 7, 2015)

With either strategy using an ATM binary option, the trade provides very close to a 100% return on risk from simply choosing whether this futures market will close higher or lower from its current price at the end of today. The momentum indicator can potentially help traders when choosing direction.
Nadex binary options and spreads can be volatile and investors risk losing their investment on any given transaction. However, the limited-risk nature of Nadex contracts ensures investors cannot lose more than the cost to enter the transaction. Nadex is subject to U.S. regulatory oversight by the CFTC.
With all the indicators that exist, and with the many binary option expirations on several instruments, there are endless possibilities of how traders may use these instruments to fit their own market view with multiple risk/reward scenario’s.
In an article last week, we examined indicators that can be helpful in assisting traders to choose market direction and to implement binary options with that technique. Today, we will continue to look at the momentum indicator, which is a simple study that is based purely on price action and gives traders another set of eyes when looking at a chart.
This strike is currently is at a $47.50 bid. If you believe that momentum will follow through lower and the day will close below the strike, you could sell this option for the $47.50 bid price. This means that if the underlying instrument has a Nadex expiration value at or below the strike price, you would receive $100 settlement payout resulting in a $47.50 profit. If this binary strike has the expiration value above 2273.00, then the initial cost of the trade is forgone which is the difference between the sale price and the $100 value, or $52.50.
We will take a look at a some examples how to trade binary options in either direction using this indicator, depending on a trader’s viewpoint. Remember that these examples are for educational purposes only. The binary strike used in both examples is used as an illustration of how to implement these options, not a recommendation of any market view or specific trade.
The chart below shows the S&P 500 futures. The short term trend this week has already established itself in a downward direction. In a downtrend, the path of less resistance is typically to sell rallies, and the momentum indicator helps to identify when a market turn may be occurring.

For example, if interest rates today were 6%, a bond due in 10 years with an interest rate of 4% would sell for approximately $666, even though the older bond will be paid off in full ($1,000) when it matures. The discount occurs because a new buyer would invest in a new bond of an equal quality rating, which would pay interest of $60 per year, rather than buying the older bond which paid only $40 per year. In order to have marketability, the older bond must be discounted to provide the same annual return on the investment – in this case 6%. Simply stated, if the current interest rate is greater than the interest rate of the bond, the bond’s market value will be less than par ($1,000); if less than the interest rate of the bond, the market value will be greater than par.
The price of a common stock continuously changes as existing shareholders’ and potential investors’ perceptions about the company’s future change. When investors are optimistic about the future of a company, prices for its common stock increase. When they are concerned or worried, prices remain level or decline. The price movement of a stock is the consensus of hundreds or thousands of investors making individual decisions about the stock – whether to buy, continue to hold, or sell.
In addition, the value of a professionally managed portfolio has been questioned by numerous studies since a significant portion of their growth has been attributed to broad market movement, rather than the skill of the managers. The asset allocation model of portfolio management has become more popular, stimulating a transfer of mutual fund ownership to ETFs with lower management fees and commissions, a more simple process of buying and selling units, and better tax efficiency in taxable accounts.
A bond represents a loan to either a government or a corporation whereby the borrower agrees to pay you a fixed sum of interest, usually semi-annually, until repaying your investment in full (maturity). Bonds are rated for credit risk – whether interest and principal payments will be made – by independent credit rating companies such as Standard & Poor and Moody’s, the best rating being AAA or Aaa, respectively. Bonds usually trade in units of $1,000, the amount being denoted as “par.” The interest rate is fixed at the time of issuance and remains unchanged throughout the life of a bond.

Are there any disadvantages to a self-hosting? The main disadvantage is that you have a little bit of a steeper learning curve because you have to install the blog yourself. This only take a few clicks nowadays, but managing your own self-hosted blog is a little bit more robust that opting for a free option. Here are some common FAQs about self-hosting a blog that might help you out.
