Javadoc closing tags in IntelliJ

When writing javadocs, IntelliJ automatically adds a closing tag for html elements. For instance, after typing <lt>, it automaticaly adds </lt>, or after typing <p>, it adds </p>. It can be annoying since simple html elements like those used in javadocs don't really need ending tags.
To disable javadoc automatic closing tags in IntelliJ, simply go to IntelliJ Preferences -> Editor -> Smart Keys, then on the right panel, uncheck Automatically insert closing tag.

A related note, JDK 8 has tightened javadoc syntax check, and as a result self-closing elements like <p/>, or <br/> are deemed invalid and will cause failures. See JDK-8020619. However, this checking can be disabled by passing nonstandard option -Xdoclint:none to javadoc tool. For official javadoc guidelines, see How to Write Doc Comments for the Javadoc Tool .

Binary Trading Options The trader is needed to choose the property for trading and begin predicting about the cost changes of which asset. On proper prediction, the investor will receive their payout automatically. Just in case he loses, he receives nothing in the binary trading.
