Trades Update 20.04.2022

I sold a BANKNIFTY 5th MAY 36300 straddle today.

In addition, I sold Banknifty 21st April 37000 CE to compensate for yesterday’s Buy of 34500 PE.

The last few months have been extremely volatile. Indexes are moving dramatically on both sides.

Such a market is not good for traders.

However, I also learned a lot during this time.
