    Hi All,

    I was searching for some hedging strategies for nifty future and I came to know a best strategy for it.
    "Hedge Nifty options with Future"

    This is the best strategy I have found till now. But it was posted before 7 years ago and then no updates from the admin after that.

    So, I want to re-start that discussion here.

    So, Friends this strategy is for a return of 20-40% monthly with investment of Rs.75000

    Right Now Nifty Spot is trading at 8273.

    Sell Call & put for next month

    Sell 8100 FEB Call
    Sell 8400 FEB Put

    Buy Nifty Future if above 8295 and hold till it reach back to 8295.
    Sell Nifty Future If below 8255 and hold till if reach again to 8255.

    In this way you will always make profit in every market condition.

    In Sideways market both premiums will loss their value and you will gain points.
    In Bull market you will make more with Nifty Buy + Sell Put
    In Bear market you will make money with Nifty Sell + Sell Call

    Target here is for 200 points.

    Note: We have to exit only when we have 200 points profit..

    So, No matter where nifty is trading.. Only exist Nifty future if it reach again to your Buy/Sell price..

    This won't stick all the time, bcos of IV.
    Remember, IV doesn't affect the Futures, and IV & Vega can also be different on either leg.
    IV isn't the same for 8300 CE & PE for eg.

    1. Key to making money of Options is to sell them very early.
    2. Selling Options when Volatility is low works against the plan, you have to forecast mkt conditions during their expiry.
    That means you have to time when you will Sell which isn't easy.

    Which broker allows selling a pair of Options plus one lot of futures in 75k?

    If your strategy is about eating premiums decay, just check it for Mar 2016.

    It doesn't always happen that nifty will open with 200-300 points gap. It rarely happens.. We can understand a gap down of 20-50 points..

    If Nifty opens a Gap Down then follow this rule:

    Next time Trade with 2 lots of nifty in place of one lot.. and exit one lot as soon as you got your loss points because of Gap down..
