NSE Nifty 50 trading strategy for 28 July F&O expiry
The strategy which we are suggesting for the week with expiry schedule on 28th July 2022 is IRON BUTTERFLY, which involves selling of one lot of Nifty 16,700Call @ 137 & selling of one lot of Nifty 16,700 Put @ 120 and simultaneously buying one lot of 16,400 Call @ 29 & buying one lot of 17,000 put @ 29. Both risk and reward in this strategy are limited and the gains in the strategy will be accrued between two levels i.e 16,900 on upside & 16,500 on downside. The Nifty is likely to find a strong support at 16,500 as 16,500 put have high OI concentration while upside is likely to be restricted to 17,000 as per the option data. Maximum profit of Rs 9,700 will happens if the Nifty closes/expires at 16,700. On the other hand if Nifty expiry close is above 17,000 (upper bep) or below 16,500 (lower bep) then maximum loss incurred will be Rs 5,300.
