IN TURBULENT TIMES LIKE THIS OPTION IS BEST TOOL

TO GET ROCKING OPTION INTRADAY & POSITIONAL CALLS FILL UP THE FORM GIVEN HERE >>>>>>
What if you do not know which direction a stock will move in, but you have the sense it will move dramatically one way or the other? There is an options strategy for that, too. It is called a straddle, which we have given day before yesterday for sep 2016 f & o expiry specially on our other blog http://niftytipsniftylevels.blogspot.in/2016/09/straddle-strategy-for-nifty-expiry.html & exactly market moved on our word & we have booked it in huge profit
More specifically, it is called a long straddle - buying a put and a call on the same underlying asset, exercise price and expiration date. Whether the stock moves one way or the other, the investor profits, but the stock has to move enough to pay off the premiums on both options. Essentially, the investor is betting on volatility.

DEAD TILL THE FED - WAIT FOR THE REACTION AND KEEP OVERNIGHTS TO A MINIMUM

To get options  less risky & properly hedged calls fill up the form given here>>>>>
The market tried to rally today and when buyers ran out of gas the downside was tested. Trading volumes were low and we can expect the same tomorrow. We are “dead till the Fed”.Best option is to trade in option call & put with properly hedged calls. No one is expecting a rate hike tomorrow, but hawkish comments could pave the way for a December increase. If this pans out, the market will not like the tone and we are likely to breach the 100-day moving average. September is typically a weak month and we could even test the 200-day moving average. If the rhetoric is more benign, the market is likely to rally.

HOW TO TRADE IN INDEX OPTIONS

An index option is the same as equity or stock option, except the underlying asset is an index instead of a stock. Just like an equity call option, an index call option is the right to buy the underlying index. And just like equity put option, an index put option is the right to sell the underlying index.
In other words, an index option is a security that allows the owner to buy or sell an index at a specified price by a specified date. It is an "option" because the owner does not "have to" exercise the option, but rather decides based on the price of the underlying if they want to exercise it. Index options are defined by the following 4 characteristics:
  • There is an underlying index
  • There is an expiration date of the option
  • There is a strike price of the option
  • The option is either the right to buy or the right to sell (call and put, respectively)
The difference between calls and puts is the owner of an index call option has the right to BUY an index at a certain price. The owner of a put option has the right to SELL an index at a certain price.
