ATM - Moderate conviction . ITM – Low Conviction Advantages of Options – Profit from Trading range Markets, High Leverage, Built-in Stop Loss, Higher Probability of Profit using Spread Trades, Increase in trading opportunities due to multiple legs, Lower Margin requirements due to high gearing in options, Increase in Reward to Risk ratio.

Gamma is the Change in Delta. Theta is the change in time remaining. Vega is the Change in Volatility (VIX) and Rho is the Change in Interest Rate. If VIX ( Volatility Index) is above average selling options is preferred and if VIX is below average buying options is preferred. The long-term average of the India VIX is around 24. Historical Volatility (Realized Volatility) is based on the standard deviation of the underlying asset while Implied Volatility is derived from the option premium traders are Keynote Capitals Ltd. th The Ruby, 9 Floor, Senapati Bapat Marg, Dadar (W), Mumbai, India – 400028.

RISK MANAGEMENT: Risk Management using options - Quantify the maximum risk and maximum reward and the breakeven points of a position before committing capital. A risk manager always focuses on how much can be lost in a position. Control the losses and the profits will take care of themselves. Determine an exit strategy in advance for every trade initiated. An exit strategy enables closure of loss-making positions unemotionally so that there is no freeze or panic when confronted with the loss. Stop Loss : Use 50% stop loss for premium paid or received for both one-leg and multiple- leg strategies. ONE-LEG STRATEGIES:  Long Call and Long Put are Limited Risk and Unlimited Reward strategies.  Short Call and Short Put are Unlimited Risk and Limited Reward strategies. TWO LEG STRATEGIES: Long Synthetic ( Buy ATM Call and Sell ATM Put) and Long Combo( Buy OTM Call and Sell OTM Put) are used to create synthetic long positions which have lower margins than comparable futures positions. Short Synthetic ( Buy ATM Put and Sell ATM Call) and Short Combo( Buy OTM Put and Sell OTM Call) are used to create synthetic short positions which have lower margins than comparable futures positions. Long Straddle, Long Strangle and Long Guts are Long volatility strategies ahead of events/results etc. Short Straddle, Short Strangle and Short Guts are Short volatility strategies when range- bound action is anticipated.

DELTA HEDGING METHODS The distance between the current market price and the short option breakeven point is divided into equal parts so that futures exposure is increased at consecutive delta adjustment points to ensure that the short option position is totally hedged by the time the breakeven point is reached. The size of the short option position is directly proportional to the distance of the short breakeven point to the current market price. Position size should be maximum at deep-out- of-the money strikes and reduce gradually as the distance to the market price reduces. Short gamma positions carry the maximum risk and using options instead of futures to hedge is advisable since futures does not cover the gap risk, while using ITM options covers the gap risk USING OPTIONS WITH SUPPORT/RESISTANCE AND MOVING AVERAGES: Buy call options at Support ( Bottom-fishing) and above resistance ( Breakout) . Buy Put options at Resistance ( Top-picking) and Below Support ( Breakdown). Moving Average Crossovers – Buy call options if price crosses the moving average from below and buy put options if price crosses moving average from above. The one month options can be linked to the 20dma with the three month options linked to the 50dma and the 1 year options linked to the 200dma. USING OPTIONS WITH OSCILLATORS:  RSI – Buy call options when RSI is below 30 and Buy put options when RSI is above 70. The RSI 50 crossover can be used to buy calls on the upside crossover and to buy puts on the downside crossover.  MACD and Parabolic SAR early warning buy signals indicate buying of calls ( bottom- fishing) and sell signals indicate buying of puts ( top-picking).
