In the last one week, NIFTY gained about 71 points as it moved from 17956.60 to 18027.65.

Not a big positive move but a gain anyway.

Nifty moving higher generally is not good when we are carrying more PUT trades. In my case it is 4 PUTS and 1 CALL.

Let us see how the trades performed over the week.

This was the status on January 13:

Situation was almost same on January 19 with MTM loss at (-) 34511.

Yesterday turned out to be good as PVR and DEEPAKNTR moved lower and both these PUTS became ITM.

That makes a difference.

How much was that difference, let us see the numbers.

One more day like this for PVR and DEEPAKNTR would help. Whether we get that on Monday remains to be seen. Anyway, trades are to be closed on Monday, January 23.

Enjoy the weekend.
