NSE Nifty 50 trading strategy for 13 Oct F&O expiry
The strategy we are suggesting is short straddle for weekly expiry scheduled at 13 October 2022. This strategy involves selling of 17,300 call & 17,300 put one lot each having premium of 207 & 177 respectively making a total premium inflow of Rs 19,200 (384 points). As it’s a credit spread, from profit perspective this strategy can generate max profit to the extent of premium received if Nifty trades & conclude the expiry in the range of BEPs; while the loss can be unlimited if Nifty breaches the upper breakeven level of 17,684 or the lower breakeven level of 16,916 and sustains on either side on expiry day. It’s advisable to maintain a combined premium (i.e add premium of call option + put option together) stop loss of 550-570 points to avoid unlimited losses if Nifty makes a strong move in either of the directions or else Traders as per there risk appetite can even hold till expiry.
