Today is the Union Budget Day 2018. Jaitley Ji has presented us with the budget and as usual, the market has reacted with wide swings during and after the budget. I know many traders have lost money today because they take market too lightly. The volatile market trading strategy is an art, and you need to master it. I am watching budget day trading since 2009 very closely and I have almost mastered the art of trading options in volatile markets. I will share my today’s trading journal with you in this post.
Yesterday I alerted you to trade today’s market with line break charts because it prints less whipsaw in volatility. I have made a tweak in normal line break charts. I advise using a 6 line break chart in a 1-minute chart.
First, we got a sell signal and immediately I opened up a buy order in Nifty 11000 put option. I have also alerted my Zero Brokerage Club subscribers to buy this put, check our telegram channel screenshot below:
For the put option targets, I used the pivot points. The first target was reached within next 3 minutes only, 11000 PE hits 145. Even the second target was done within 30 minutes. So I booked full and asked my subscribers to book full too.
Next, I changed to Bank Nifty index charts. I got a buy signal as per my setup in Bank Nifty 1st February 27300 CE. I preferred weekly options because they have expiry today and I love the expiry day options trading. My subscribers also went long on the Bank Nifty call option.
Both the targets have been achieved within next 32 minutes and I and my subscribers booked full profits. Check the telegram channel screenshot.
So, how much profits I made by trading options in volatile markets? If we traded 2 lots in each trade and book 1 lot each in each target in Nifty options my total profits were Rs. 4500 (average 30 points x total traded quantity 150), whereas the total margin needed was Rs. 12600 for this trade. And in Bank Nifty options my total profits were Rs. 12000 (average 150 points x total traded quantity 80), whereas the total margin needed was Rs. 5600 for this trade.
So my total profits were Rs. 16500 against a margin of 18200, i.e, more than 90% return on investment or 90% returns on the margin money.
