Choose A U.S. Binary Options Broker | Binary Options

So You Want To Trade Binary Options As A U.S. Resident, First Know The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) & The Commodity Exchange Act & Regulations (CEA)

Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission was created in 1974 with the enactment of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission Act. Prior to this, futures contracts for agricultural commodities were traded in the United States for over 150 years and since 1920, under Federal regulation. The (CFTC)’s mission is to promote integrity, resilience, and vibrancy of the U.S. derivatives market through sound regulation. (Bold emphasis added.)

You can visit the (CFTC) website directly here.

The Commodity Exchange Act (CEA)

The Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) regulates the trading of commodity futures in the United States. It establishes the statutory framework under which the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) operates. Under the (CEA) the (CFTC) has the authority to establish regulations that are published in title 17 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Binary Options Brokers Who Use Arbitrage Services

There are a lot of binary options brokers who offer arbitrage services that allow you to trade binary options. Some of these arbitrage services are located in countries outside of the United States of America. Some U.S. residents opt to trade using the arbitrage services that are in these countries, however, if you live in the United States of America your binary options broker should be registered in the United States of America. You want to trade legally and ethically. You don’t want to be intertwined with, caught up in, or connected to an off shore broker that could possibly get you in legal trouble because they aren’t following U.S. Regulations and requirements and indirectly you, whether you are aware of it or not, would not be following U.S. Regulations and requirements.

You Could Lose All Of Your Money With An Off Shore Broker

Another reason why you want to use a U.S. based broker is, you could lose all of your money. Without regulation to protect you and your funds you could lose everything you invested and gain while trading with an off shore broker. You want to be at ease while trading and know that your investments are regulated and you want to profit.

U.S. Binary Options Brokers

You can check whether a broker is registered with the (CFTC) in the United states BEFORE you trade. You can actually check registration and backgrounds before you trade. This can be done by visiting the NFA BASIC database to check. You can get there directly from a webpage on the CFTC’s website here.

Per the CFTC,

Before working with any person or firm to trade in commodity futures, commodity pools, options, forex, or other derivatives, verify that the entity is properly registered with the CFTC. The Commodity Exchange Act requires certain firms and individuals to be registered with the (CFTC). Registration and examination of intermediaries is conducted on behalf of the (CFTC) by the National Futures Association (NFA) under the supervision of the (CFTC).

With a check via NFA BASIC database, you receive registration, disciplinary or regulatory history, and financial information.

Cost Of Living For Each State | United States Of America

What is Cost of Living (COL)?

Cost of Living is the level of prices relating to a range of everyday items.

Google

The cost of living is defined as the amount of money needed to sustain a certain standard of living by affording basic needs such as housing, food, healthcare, and more.

World Population Review

How Is Cost Of Living (COL) Used?

Cost of living is used to see how much it costs to live in a particular state. If you’ve never taken the time out to find out what this amount is, you should. It can help in determining and making economic decisions for your life. It will help you realize how much things cost in your state. You have no control over the state you are born in, however, once you reach the age where you can make your own decisions, you have control over whether you want to stay in your birth state or move somewhere else.

Have you thought about moving?

If you are transistioning to another state, this is good information to know. For example, if you plan on renting an apartment, the amount it cost to rent an apartment in Oklahoma is not the same amount to rent an apartment in California. In fact, an apartment in California can be in the two thousand dollar range per month. Why? The cost of living for each state is different. The prices for food, clothing, gas, and etc., are different.

The cost of living is often used to compare how expensive it is to live in one location compared to another and is also used as a big factor for people to determine where they want to be located in addition to cultural attractions, the job market, and other factors.

How I Stayed Two Nights At A Hilton Garden Inn For $9.22 | Hilton Honor Points

Hotels

Hotels are varied in class, safety, and preference. I have had the opportunity to stay in a variety of hotels. Hilton Garden Inn is apart of the Hilton Brand.

How I Did It

One night, I didn’t have any place to go and asked if I could charge the laptop I was using in the lobby of a Hampton Inn that was in the area of the previous hotel I had stayed at. I ended up staying close to a month, maybe more at that particular Hampton Inn. This was also during the pandemic, executive orders for Michigan. Because I signed up that night for Hilton Honors, I accumulated points for the stays that were under my name and Honors Member number at the hotel. Needless to say, the points were enough for me to book a free twonight stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. I paid $9.22 in taxes and fees. If you are familiar with the prices at Hilton Garden Inn, some nights a hotel room can be over $100.00, like $102 -$109 dollars before taxes and fees. Points are really a benefit. Being a Hilton Honors Member is a benefit. Outside of point accumulation, you also can receive Honor Rates when available.

I booked the room online using my points and my debit card to make the reservation. It was $9.22. Once, I got to the hotel, there was a refundable incidental fee, that I also had to have authorized on my debit card. After, checking out, my final price for the room was $9.22. That is a great deal!

What Are Points?

Points are a system of value that works like money but isn’t money! You can’t redeem it for money. You can earn points from stays, flights, rideshare, etc., Depending on the brand or merchant that is giving the points determines ways you can earn the points and how you can use them. With Hilton Honors, you can earn points and you can buy points. I earned points. With every stay and for listening to calls after talking with a Hilton Honors Representative via phone.

How You Can Do It

  1. Sign up to be a Hilton Honors member.
  2. Stay at any Hilton hotel to accumulate points.
  3. Earn any of the ways listed on the Hilton Honors Website.
  4. Listen to phone calls when offered after talking to a live Hilton Honors Representative.
  5. You can also purchase points. They recently had a match points promotion going on, where if you buy a certain amount of points, they match the points.
  6. You can also take surveys when offered to you to earn Hilton Honors points.
  7. Once you accumulate enough points, find a Hilton Garden Inn or any Hilton Hotel that you would like to stay at and book it!
