Binary Options & The Apple iPhone 5 Event

Apple is holding a special event on October 4th presumably to announce the launch of the iPhone 5. Expectations are through the ceiling for this event and I expect volatility around shares of Apple through the event to be elevated.

Short-term traders love to trade shares of Apple through these presentations, just pull up an intra-day chart for the company’s last 4 events and behold the volatility:

1/27/10: iPad Announcement – Stock gained 4% (202-210) btw 1:00-2:00
6/7/10: iPhone 4 Announcement – Stock fell over 2% (255-251) btw 1:00-3:00
3/2/11: iPad 2 Announcement – Stock gained 1% (350-352) after noon ET
6/6/11: WWDC – Stock fell 2% (344-338) after noon ET

This event will be special as we have not had the opportunity to trade 60-second options during previous Apple events. You CAN now using TradesRush.
