# OTM call selling

Hello friends I am new to option trading . Through browsing over various websites I have come to know that option selling is a high probability profit trade. Now I have some questions so could you please answer them

Stock is IOC cmp 110.55
I want to sell its 125 CE Feb at premium 0.1
Lotsize 4000

So what will be my profit if it never reaches 125 till 27 Feb expiry suppose it hit 123 high but not 125
I guess profit will be 400
But to get this profit Do I have to square off my position or just leave it as it is ?

And wat will be my loss suppose if it surpasses 125 nd closes on 130 ?

Please guide as I have more questions Thanks

what will be my profit if it never reaches 125 till 27 Feb expiry suppose it hit 123 high but not 125 I guess profit will be 400

correct. you can leave it to expire worthlessly. you need to consider other trade charges (brokerage, stt, txn charge,gst, stmpdutyâ€¦etc).

at will be my loss suppose if it surpasses 125 nd closes on 130 ?

loss= (5-0.1)*lot size. This is basic in options trading. Best, you can go through varsity option chapters for better understanding.

Sir suppose ioc inches near 125 say 124 on expiry day then can I square off my position at 124 nd wat will be loss at 124 ?

Please familiarize yourself with option analytics tools like opstraâ€¦ And prepare an option pnl calculator using Excelâ€¦ for various scenarios using YouTube tutorialsâ€¦ That will put you in a better position to understand a-z about your positionsâ€¦

I understood the concept in theory but when I buy or sell options in zerodha it directly starts showing pnl in red/green numbers in positions which confuses me

Please suggest some good books for learning options basic and how to calculate pnl an indian author book will be better thnx.
