# Option Strategy by Sunil Rai

**Condor**

The advantage of a condor compared to a butterfly is it allows you to take a directional play, but it gives you a larger range where you may do pretty well. Like a butterfly, a condor is composed of either all calls or all puts.

Again, if we take our $63 stock, but this time we think it will be somewhere between $70 and $75 at expiration, a condor can let us maximize profit while limiting risk. To do this, we can buy a 65-70 bull call spread by buying the 65 call and selling the 70 call, and then selling a 75-80 bear call spread by selling the 75 call and buying the 80 call. Profit is maximized if we expire between $70-$75 and our wings give us protection should we miss our mark. Again, our maximum loss is the cost of the condor, plus commissions.

Now my strategy i put first butterfly with strike price 5800 , with cover 3 lots for maintaining risk reward ratio, with given 59 points

on next market move dn side then i book 57 points in 5800ce & make again condor by sell 5900ce, now total point gain 99 but still hold for expectation that mkt is very soon above 6000 or below 5700 which strike price good for exit strategy on expiry expectation

(a) expiry between 5800-5900 total point gain 150

(b)expiry between 5700-5799 & 5901-6000 minmum gain 50 points

(c) expiry below 5700 & above 6000 gain be maximize on closing basis

suggestion for scalp at level 5800 & 5900 give more profit

book part profit to 5800 pe @40,5900 ce @ 107, 6000ce@ 58 & 5700 pe @ 41 total profit 150 points

Only paper trade make butterfly at strike price 2500

sell 2500 ce pe @ 198 &146 buy one lot 2700ce @110 & 2300 pe @79

As seen in OI decreases in volume in 6000 ce & increase in volume 6200 ce rate decrease , my strategy changed for booking profit in 2lots of 6000 ce @ 59 & 5800 pe 30.6 get 87 point, now hold 5900 ce 1 lot 6000ce & 3 lot 5700 pe

As per closing 5907 , loss 7 point , now total point profit 80+57 =137 points at last get with invest 59 points , on dated 11th july also get profit 150 points partially, i suggested if get position in option daily check OI in respect of Price

As per OI in Nifty option sept month increase in 6000 ce & 5500 pe , take calender spread of strike 5400 pe & 6100 ce i.e. sell 5400 pe & 6100 ce august series @ 27 & 9, buy 5400 pe & 6100 ce sept series @ 63 &36 , Total cost 63 points with risk of Rs3150/- till 26 sep. Target as risk reward ratio between 1:1.5 to 1:2, S/L not bother about it till aug expiry ,expected expiry this month between 5900 to 6200

As per most text books there is an established principle that if
the price rises with rise in open interest the market is bullish. However,
there is a lacuna in this information. In case of a calendar spread
transaction i.e. buy near month future and sell far month future, usually the
open interest of the both the position is counted. There will be an increase in
the open interest but this could be misleading.In the May 2013 expiry the same strategy was adopted by
big players. Because of this reason there was 2.6% price rise in the week
ending on 30^{th} May 13 (5 days) but 3.4% fall in next three days of new
expiry. It was because of this strategy adopted by big players.

So if your trading decisions are based on price and open interest analysis, please be careful and study month wise open interest too.

Now my strategy get 5400 pe rate 155 & 73.25 , 6100 ce rate 7.25 & 0.8 , total point now 88 , earn 25 point i.e 1250/- spend just 3150/-

even if my expected expiry is now wrong side, hold it till expiry or sept expiry

Book more profit at this stage , call closed on expiry day 12.45 PM

As i mentioned about OI in #28 market pull by 2-3% so keep above 6100 ce for 3-6 trading session, or Make STRAP for 3-6 trading session i.e. buy 2 ce & 1 pe of same strike for sept month

Sunilrai ji, call was not so clear to me. Can you explain what to buy ant strike price, price.

today nifty gain 2.3% , & my strategy call give 161+2 points , total point 100 for just expend 63 , without tension or take bother where mkt goes. Rajaji STRAP making at any strike point , genrally near underlying , in above call strike is 5300 at @ 173 ce & @ 185 pe Total cost 173*2+185= 531 but i am not take this call because it involve heavy amount & no time decay vaule but it gives also in favor result if market moves +- 50to100 points, similarly STRIP making if u think market in bearish buy 2 pe & 1 ce with same strike

The strap gives now211*2+126 =548 , i.e 17 points

For this month i take sell 5400 pe @ 162 , buy 5500pe @ 210 & buy 5900 ce 2 lot @ 9 , total 210+18-162=66 points

The STRAP give 293*2+80=666 points Total profit 666-531=135 points , if any body takes book full

Make STRIP at strike price5500 @ ce 148 pe 2*142
