Yesterday, Nifty closed at 18107.85, down 57 points from the previous day.

That helped our set of trades to do little better. All the trades were closed around 2:48 PM and the profit for the series came to 231.80 Points.

We can say that it was a good month.

Profit in December 2022 series was just 67.60 Points.

As long as Nifty remains rangebound, this method will keep giving some profit.

February 2023 Series Trades:

BUY options were NIFTY CALL 17000 and NIFTY PUT 19000 for FEB 23 expiry.

There is a 2000 point gap between these two strikes and the options could be bought for Rs. 2060. So, the maximum loss that can be faced in bought options would be just 60 points.

How much profit will come through the SOLD options, will be decided by the market moves.

The trades yesterday at 3:15 PM

BUY NIFTY CALL 17000 FEB 23 — Rs. 1220

BUY NIFTY PUT 19000 FEB 23 —- Rs. 840

SELL NIFTY CALL 18100 JAN 25 — Rs. 114.50

Well, we should not expect a miracle in 15 minutes. The trades are set and now we have to follow them on day to day basis while doing nothing on most of the days.
