October 2020 — Options Buying — Day 16

Bears came calling yesterday and trampled all over. At the end of the day the bull’s garden was lying in shambles. Apparently, the day should have been great for our trades. No. It was not. For most part of the day, even when NIFTY was down 200 points, all the three stocks were gainers. It […]

Yesterday was another good day in this series. The early trends in the market helped us to set up the new trades in ITC with a credit of Rs. 4000. Not a big amount but as the expiry comes closer, there is no chance of getting bigger credits. We make do with what market gives. […]

A look at the Banknifty chart will tell the story better than any words. There was mayhem in the market. From the high prices, the stocks kept on going lower and lower and that did not end till the day ended. Strategies offer the comfort that you do not lose big even on such days. […]

Another very volatile day for the indices. A good day for our trades. NTPC finally gave us the chance to book the profit we were looking for. Trades were closed early in the day. As the stock price kept going lower, any time would have been good. We have been extremely lucky with this series […]

October 2020 — Options Buying — Day 13

The churning is on. Market is undecided about which way to go over last two days. Yesterday was another day of going nowhere. As mentioned many times in the past, flat days are never good for option buyers. We lose money even when stocks are staying where they were. Losing money is something we know […]

A flat day for the NIFTY. A flat day is good for our trades. In the morning new set up was done in POWERGRID trades. Net credit of Rs. 4000 was received. Other two trades in NTPC and ONGC too did well for the day and the current position looks like this: Still not able […]

Money In The Bank — October 2020 Series — October 14, 2020

NIFTY ended flat yesterday. BANKNIFTY was where the action was. It was on the down side. Over last two days banking stocks are not doing well. That is normal. They had run up very high in the last week. Some profit booking at higher level is normal. Our trades were showing a loss at close […]
