What is the best strategy that one can follow always in options index trading



Nothing last forever!


First check the trend of Market, when I say market it is NIFTY SPOT, if it is in UPTREND then buy calls. Now these calls should be close to spot price of nifty. eg. If Spot is 6678 buy NIFTY CE 6700 Option.

If market is in downtrend then buy Nifty Puts eg. if Spot is trading at 6639 then BUY NIFTY PE 6600.

There are many other strategies one can follow, but before that one has to perfect the simple strategy as mentioned above, along with strict S/L and Money Management Techniques. Hope this answers your question.


One day u’ll stumble upon a best strategy by ur self. Having said that, keep track of the activity in global markets, current affairs, economic calendar, pre-market report & post-market report. Keep track of FII fund flows, current account deficit, stay away from news driven market activities. Strategy 1: Divide caital into 40:30:30 ratio. Use one part for trading while the second part is left as reserve trade in case the existing trade to go wrong. The final part is a Capital Reserve. Keep loss ratio on ur invested capital. Plan your exit. Make sure to book ur profit. Strategy 2: Divide capital into 50:50 ratio. Enter the trade of ur choice. Book small profit. Wait ur turn. Calm ur emotions. Repeat the strategy. Caution adviced with overtrading. Probability is the mantra on this method. The above discussed strategies are developed for self trade & I have achieved success on most of my trades. I treat trading as just the game of numbers.

I believe there cannot be straight forward answer for this. 

Time is money in Options. So, as a first step divide the timeline into short, medium, long term.

Current Month Expiry: Short term - 2 weeks, Medium term - 4 weeks(1month).

Next Month Expiry:  Long term - 8 weeks(2 months). 

Next, study the interested security(index or stock or usdinr). Based on the projected analysis of a security, decide to go long side or short side and the timeline that the security might fall into as mentioned above.

Then, based on your risk capital decide on the type of Option strategy that you want to play.

Options and Futures are sure way to loose money as these instruments are like gambling where in you place your bet.

The charts and indicators are forecasting tools for your wishful thinking.

In the end its the broker who is making money, not you.


Be aware of market conditions. Have a basic understanding of factors that effect the price of an option. And remember that seller’s typically have an upper hand of being right. If you are a buyer, time is always against you. So, if you feel a stock would go up 2-5% in 2 weeks time, although you might be right in the direction, you might still not make money trading buying options. Then there is also an impact of volatility. The volatility is never realised. So, buyer always pays this premium. Keep an eye on VIX. If IV is high, then the risk of ending in a loss even though you predict the direction well is higher. Since time and volatility are against you.

A simple strategy that would earn you decent returns would be to sell far out of money calls and puts and hold it to expiry.

If you are working on large capital, a good capital preserving strategy would be to sell the options and use the option premium credits to buy directional bets. This way, your capital will never erode(although there is a capital erosion owing to inflation) and if your bets do work out, you are better off. Important is to be able to choose the option strikes wisely.


Buy one Nifty Future and buy 2 ATM puts wait for couple of days if it moves either side of the market it gives the profit, close the trade and do it again. if it doesn't move much close the trade and wait for a day and do it again. Minimum loss maximum gain.

Good luck :)

With introduction of bank nifty weekly options, any options trader can write far of Out of the Money call or puts during the expiry days to take less risk and high probability trades...
As sellers of the options are always at the advantage because time value decay usually work in their favor. Even you can see a big increase in the open interest in the out of the money options during or near to the expiry days.
With weekly options, now we can do writing of options 4 times in a month to take benefit of time value decay.

Technical charts can be utilized to see the major resistance and support levels within last days of the expiry as the options writing above or below these anchor levels can be used to take small profits but those which have higher probability of success.  Also, writing works in favor during the last two hours of the expiry day.
With experience, we can start trading big lot size to make big profits from this.

if you are new to trading do not start with options. it is more dangerous. start with equity shares and try to learn how to use trading terminal effectively using various order types like bracket order, cover order , stop loss order etc.

after you are good with those then you can think of options. Options are used for hedging purpose. means more sellers. you can wonder how sellers will be more than buyers ? that is because it is sellers who decide the price. they make more money by selling more. because the more they sell more fall in price so the end up in profits easily. Options buyers will only loose. 99% options buyers loose money.

do you want to trade with 1% probability of winning ?

I am trading in options with limits up to 15 days to expiry not after that.

if some thing comes easy, then it will be for both loosing and gaining.

do not watch TV while you are trading.
