Is my trading strategy right?

Kindly suggest if my strategy is right. Nifty spot is at 8524 and nifty 8500 call is at 115 while the put of same strike is at 71. I wish to carry them till expiry. If nifty ends on 8500 i might get entire premium (115+71=186). In fact, i will be not only safe but in profit till nifty is in range of 150 points on either side of 8500. Thanks n regards

You did not mentioned Buy / Short. From your words I understood You want to be on Short. Right ?

Then You are right.

But Think twice before shorting At the Money options. Because We can’t say when Nifty crosses your limits, It may be possible even on expiry day also.

Think about out of money options to short or Keep some hedging for At the Money Shorts.

Happy Trading.


This strategy is entirely wrong. If you carry till expiry, see what happens:-

1. You bought NIFTY 8500 Call at Rs 115 (Nifty Spot is at 8500) (If bought 1 Call, Qty-25)

After expiry, you will get 8524 (spot) - 8500 (strike) = 24 x 25 (1 Lot) = Rs 600 only.


In the case of call What you will get is, how much nifty spot is more than your strike price x Qty bought.

2. You bought NIFTY 8500 Put at Rs 71 (Nifty Spot is at 8500) (If bought 1 Call, Qty-25)

After expiry, You will get 8500 (spot) - 8500 (strike) = 0


In the case of Put What you will get is, how much nifty spot is less than your strike price x Qty bought

Hope it clarifies your doubts

Read My Story of Trading

How Iam doing NIFTY Options Call Put Intraday Trading? What is my Strategy? What You need? 

1. Basic Understanding of Index options, Call Put etc. 

2. Good PC and or Laptop with UPS (In case of power failure)

3. Broadband Internet/ 3G Net connection. 

4. TV with CNBC Channel (For latest news) 

5. Good Android smart phone with 3G Internet and required App's. 

6. Good Discount brokerage Account which charges you less brokerages. (Iam Using Zerodha).

7. After having everything set, what do you want. Most Importantly you need some tips from somewhere. Generally small investors trade on news seen on TV. They just watch CNBC or some other channel and makes their own decision to trade. But I have seen that they generally make losses with this approach. Small Investors always think that there are people inside market who can give valuable tips about doing intraday trading. After reaserching in Internet about these tips, I found that these tips do not serves the purpose. 

8. I have subscribed for famous intraday tips for Rs 10000 (Oh my god) for one month, He generally gives one tip in a day. I was trading with major brokerage with 3 in 1 account. After one month trading, what i can see is Rs 10000 for TIPS + Rs 22500 for Brokerage + Rs 2500 Loss = A total loss of Rs 35000.

9. Tips worked for only half time, so what you got is what you loose and some dynamic trading by me made 2500 loss.

10. I have paid Rs 22500 as brokerages (Can u believe this?).

11. Paid Rs 10000 for tips.

After that I have changed my plan stopped trading for a month and checked what went wrong with me? I got this

12. I came to know that in Intraday trading, brokerage commission will play an important role, it adds to the buying cost of a stock / future / option . If it’s high then it would be difficult for the trader to make some good profit intraday. So I have Immediately shifted to zerodha. Zerodha he charges Rs 20 each order irrespective of size of order. (Check the brockerages now with automatic calculator.) 

13. And most importantly i have shifted to a wonderful Automatic buy sell signal software based on Amibroker AFL Formaula. Which generates buy and sell signals in live market and its very cheap. Rs 1000 only for Equity/F&O. So i have subscribed and started trading.

14. Now my life has changed, I have made Rs 10500 Profit after paying brokerages of Rs 2500 only and Rs 1000 for Automatic buy sell signal.

15. Several times I have missed heavy profits because i have squared off early. Now I got confidence and making nice profits.

16. Zerodha + Buy Sell Software = Profits.

Thanks and Happy trading.
