Index: BankNIFTY

Strategy: Short Strangle Spread

View: Range bound Movement with bearish sentiment due to Trump’s Tariff and upcoming Corporate Earnings

Contract: 12th April 2018

Sell 1 lot 24000 PE at 35.55

Sell 1 lot 25200 CE at 54.20

As per the below chart on the Daily timeframe of aforesaid scrip, we can see support at 24000 levels which are often getting broken towards 100 points only to come back at the support level.

We can see resistance at 25200 but we are adamant to keep the upper breakout with slightly more leg-room considering price action breakout at these levels.

Points To Note:

  • As Trump announces more tariff to come and We’ve Fed comment at Friday end. We feel it will be a black Friday for DOWJONES 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

Profit Percentage: 5.04%
