As opposed to classic binary trading (chose, analyze, invest), with the Ladder, a trader can select multiple options for the same expiry time that are deep in-the-money to gain a few percentage points in a ‘safer manner’ or choose an option that is out-of-the money to gain a potential return that can reach up to 1500%.
A trader gets a range of price levels, which are lined at equal intervals as if on a ladder. The trader assesses whether the underlying asset price will close above or below the pre-determined price level at the expiration time. Ladder trading can also be defined as “Target”. The trader has pre-determined target levels for which he assesses whether the target will be fulfilled by the expiration time.
