How to avoid slippage due to BID-ASK SPREAD in options / futures?

can anyone share more info about the bid-ask spread and its effect on our square-off ?

  • Avoid trading illiquid options

  • Do not place Market/Stop Loss market orders. Always use Limit orders

  • Do not place huge quantity buy/sell orders. Split them into several orders with 5-10 ps difference

  • Take extra precautions while trading far month options

  • Be careful while trading any stock options. The turnover in Stock options is quiet low in the Indian markets
