This move will increase VIX anyway NSE want more business than should remove ASM and also provide overnight hold of F&O only in SPAN.

This is insanity ! Weekly options is pure sellers turf !
One one hand you promote speculation, on the other hand you complain about retail speculation. All this feels like retailers are an uninvited bunch of people in India’s stock market. Mr Nitin Kamat must atleast now understand that all this care about protecting retailers from huge losses is just hogwash.


#11

Can someone please explain what are they trying to do …
on one hand capping retailers and on other hand introducing new segments
Bunch of buffoons

SEBI, NSE & all brokers want to generate huge revenues as Nifty is quite popular. So we would see more traders losing money now & institutions would start writing algos etc & make a fortune. Our markets are all screwed up by our regulators. Looks like only supreme court is controlling our country…


#13

If we have buyers then there will be sellers, can’t blame the market or regulators. Options are meant for hedging purpose, Some see as as money making opportunities others see as gambling. Its up to the individual how to use it.

This is a open world no body forces to trade in particular segment. One who understands the risk and play the game will survive. Who ever wants to test their fortune will survive few times but end up with losses.

These contracts will start trading from February 11th.

At the same time…

when there are weekly options, the big guys would have big positions both in Call side and Put side Hence may reduce the volatility (my thinking). let’s see.

Also, may give good hint on the possible ranges especially on thursdays!

This will increase volatility. :slight_smile:
