Trades Update 19.04.2022

Today, I exited an Arpil expiry straddle in the last few minutes due to a large drop in the last hour, taking a profit of Rs. 1400.

In addition, I did adjusmant in 38000 May straddle.

Until 2:30 p.m., the Mtm profit was around Rs. 16000, and it is now showing a Mtm loss of Rs 5,386.

However, because the average index closing prices are somewhat higher, I expect the Mtm loss to be adjusted in profit in the morning.

I was also concerned about tomorrow, so I purchased weekly 34500 Put options 2 lot, which will protect me if there is a significant gap down.

Trade 1:

Sold BANKNIFTY MAY 38000 STRADDLE on 13-04-2022.

SOLD BANKNIFTY MAY 38000 CE = 1160.00

SOLD BANKNIFTY MAY 38000 PE = 1150.00

Date: 19-04-2022

I was concerned that the market would open gap down tomorrow, and the straddle would open below the breakeven point. So, in that case, I’ll be losing a lot of money.

As a result, I made adjustments in this trade.

After creating this straddle in 2-4 days, the BankNifty drops 2000 points.

There is always a panic when we create a straddle and the market moves significantly on either side.

Long-term options straddles, on the other hand, have a high breakeven point and plenty of room for adjustment.

Now I’m some relaxed, and this straddle should be in profit in a few days.

Let us see how it goes.

If I find a clear direction, I’ll make some more weekly adjustments tomorrow.

Today it has an MTM loss of Rs. 6,403.

Trade 2:


SOLD BANKNIFTY MAY 37000 CE = 1230.00

SOLD BANKNIFTY MAY 37000 PE = 1050.00
