Points To Note:

  • As Trump announces more tariff to come and We’ve Fed comment on Friday end. We feel it will be a black Friday for DOW JONES as investors won’t be comfortable to hold overnight positions. We can get a better premium for 24000 PE on the wait. It will have a synthetic effect.
  • Buy 24000 PE; the premium is low and will burst on vega on slight downfall which has high probability thanks to our current global fiasco. And, then reverse the trade. In case our small gamble fails and our rationale holds; We shall close 24000 PE buy on half profit erosion and reverse the trade which will still make a decent profit.

Effective Margin: 71,222 INR
