Binary Options


Just recently, I've been looking into binary options.

They're derivatives that are based upon the stock market.  They're called binary because they have two possible outcomes - money or no money - and have nothing todo with computer binary numbers.

As with anything based on the stock market, money can disappear very quickly - great care needs to be taken not to click at random, otherwise alot of money can vanish in an instance.  

There are several different versions of binary options and one of the easier to understand is to predict whether an "asset" is going to finish higher or lower than a certain point.  If it does then you get a payout, if not then you don't.

There are all sorts of tools and indicators that can be used to predict the nature of the stock market and it all has it's own lingo - including Candlesticks, Pinocchio, hammers, gravestones, Bollinger bands and Alligators.

Earn Money With CrowdFlower


Extra Money


I've been looking into earning a bit of money from home and came across www.crowdflower.com

Unlike another tasking site, there's no complex faffing about with different IDs and the grading system of how "good" you are is built into the tasks themselves without having to take special tests or exams.  There also seem to be plenty of tasks to be getting on with.

I've only just started and have made half a US dollar by identifying articles and finding their authors. Some of the sites are a bit on the adult side of things plus you need to make sure your anti-virus is ok and up to date as it sends you on a journey around the web looking at all these articles.

Payment is through paypal

The more tasks and hidden test tasks you do, the higher your grading - it reaches a certain point (don't remember the criteria) when it upgrades you to the next level where it starts paying more for each task.

It's well worth a look.
