Welcome to the first day of the week. Weekend is over and it is business as usual on Monday. This week we get 4 trading days as the market is closed on November 23, 2018 on account of Guru Nanak Jayanti.

Friday was a very strange kind of day. NIFTY ended up higher but various stocks performed differently.

IBULHSGFIN was one of the new trades. This stock ended down by more than 4%.

RELINFRA did the same and is now an ITM option. It will be interesting if it continues its downward momentum.

I had mentioned YESBNK yesterday but not suggested a trade. That stock was down 7%.

On the other hand we saw SUNTV falling to Rs. 584 at one point and then recovering to Rs. 614 at close. Too bad for us.

IDEA was a setback. It went to a low of Rs. 36.20 and then moved up to Rs. 43.90 at one stage. That is a recovery of more than 20% on the same day. Finally it ended the day at Rs. 42.35 ( Last Traded Price ) and we do not know which way it goes from here. This is one advantage the option buyers have. We can not lose more than the premium paid.

MARUTI too went down a bit but our trade is far too away.

CIPLA trade was taken PUT 500 at Rs. 4.60. The stock stayed in the positive throughout the day.

This was the position as of close on Friday, November 16.

We are hanging in there with a small loss.

Now we are into 9 trades and one trade in SBIN is considered closed. With 8 days to go and 9 PUTS in hand and in a losing situation is not the right place to be. More so with the markets moving up step by step over last few days. SGX NIFTY is showing further up side today as it is up 46 points as I write.

In this business we have to face the heat, there is no way to avoid that. Some trades will come good and a few will go bad.

Let us stay with the trades we have and not venture into further trades today. Be watchful and careful.

Trade cautiously, trade profitably.
