F&O strategies for Nifty, TCS

Nifty Hedge:

Buy 7800 PE

Sell 2 Lots 7500 PE

Buy 7200 PE


Target Profit: Rs 4500

Stop Loss: Rs 1000


Considering the increment in Call writing in Nifty in strikes as near as 7900 and upwards, it looks like we may see a halt in the up move. Considering relatively high implied volatility it makes sense to keep a hedge in place in case if Nifty reverts back from here

TCS Call Ratio

Buy 2600 CE

Sell 2 Lots 2700 CE

Target Profit: Rs 4000

Stop Loss : Rs 1500


TCS is placed near the lower end of the options indicated trading band. The stock has not added any significant longs but the futures open interest trend is not negative. Considering the lack of long evidence it makes sense to trade with prudence hence Call ratio spread could suit well.
