INTRINSIC LESS THAN EXPECTED - OPTIONS

Hi ... As far as I know, this has something to do with STT tax which is usually charged higher for all ITM on the day of expiry. Therefore, it is must to exit the ITM options before they expire (before 3:30 PM on expiry day). Also, because of the fact that traders are pretty much aware of this hefty STT on expiry days, hence it affects the total number of buyers and sellers in those particular ITM contracts and therefore we get to see changes in intrinsic values. A person once told me this thing long ago, I am sharing with you whatever I remember. Thanks.

These are all far from the fact. Please read the following.

It is due to a wrong definition of 'Settlement Price', ITM Options on expiry are being charged a whopping STT. So, the option holders are dumping their options at a discount.

This thread explains the mistake, and as per NSE's settlement price for ITM Options.

How to get back STT paid on ITM Options on Expiry, probably with a Booty!

If NSE corrects the settlement price to the correct settlement price, then everyone would claim the wrong STT charged, and this could be of the order of Rs.20,000 Crores.

Unfortunately, representations have been made on the wrong points.

Optionsright! Sorry. You have understood wrong.

I recommend you to stop wasting your time on this.

Seems like you lost a lot of money by not squaring it off your ITM options.

Better luck next time.

Do not make arbitrary statements. I have given the NSE definition of Settlement Price from NSE website.


NSE Settlement Price.png

Read and understand before writing. Here the Settlement price on

Options Contracts on Index and Individual Securities

Final Exercise Settlement

Closing Price of such underlying security (or index) on the last trading day of the options contract.

So, STT is charged on this settlement price, and not the actual settlement price. But the options contract is settled as per regular definition of Options contract!

Now that I have explained everything clearly, I should return the favor. What intrigues me is whether you have any ulterior motive to make arbitrary statements.

Yes, please again go through the same screenshot shared by you,

it clearly says,

"closing price of such underlying security or index"

what that means??

it is not saying closing price of option premium value,

it is clearly saying closing price of such underlying security (stocks) or index (Nifty, Banknifty etc).

Now say what is underlying security for Nifty 10000 CE? underlying security is Nifty50 spot value. Means 9710 for Friday.

what is underlying security for banknifty options??? It is banknifty spot value 23900.

Right questions can be answered. Wrong questions can't be answered because question is wrong and baseless.
