How are profits and risks on Binance Options calculated?
Compared to binary options products, Binance Options has many similarities because of its short-term support.
But Binance argues that they are not the same as binary options because Binance Options does not have a fixed payment structure.
For Binance Options, your profits will not be limited. The only risk is the option fee.
When you do Buy Call ie you are expecting a price higher than the current one. You will be profitable if it follows your expectations.
Suppose you Buy Call 1 BTC frame size 8 hours (8H), strike price (Strike Price) is 9900 USDT with the option fee (Premium) is 140 USDT (you expect the BTC price to go up within 8 hours).
Then the breakeven price will be 9900 + 140 = 10040 USDT. This means that when BTC goes up to 10040 USDT you will have no more losses.
If BTC exceeds 10040 USDT and goes up to 12000, you will get 11000-10040 = 960 USDT.
Where Bitcoin does not go up as you expected or even go below the price you call (Strike Price) you lose the option fee of 140 USDT.
When you do Buy Put that is, you predict that Bitcoin will fall. You will be profitable if it goes according to your prediction.
Suppose you Buy Put size 1 BTC time frame 1 hour (1H), strike price is 9900 USDT with option fee of 40 USDT (you predict the price will drop within 1 hour).
Then the breakeven price will be 9900-40 = 9860 USDT. You will break even and make a profit when the Bitcoin price falls below 9860 USDT.
If Bitcoin is not falling as you predicted then your loss is 40 USDT corresponding to the option fee.
