Don't get into #OptionsTrading with less than 25L if primary engine is #OptionSelling

Don't create focus on return in trades.

Traders need to check their ledger not daily MTM PNL statements.

Selling of deep ITM options to hide and carry forward losses is a common practice amongst unscrupulous "sub-brokers" illegally managing others money in #OptionsTrading.
There are no mandates from @SEBI_India on allowing "sub-brokers" or any party to trade and manage client funds in #OptionsTrading.

Certainly no mandate to take leverage of the sorts usually taken.
@SEBI_India Even AIF Category 3 norms don't allow leverage upwards of 2.

Beyond that, even an AIF cannot solicit funds from the public openly.

More on these norms here:…

The God of #Options #Greeks is often disregarded and has no mercy, especially on #Options #expiration day.

A #Thread on #Gamma.

The primary feature of #Options is their non-linear payout.

Most traders understand that #OptionsPricing is dependent on the price of the underlying, but the response is non-linear. #Gamma is the variable that describes this non-linearity.

Loosely, if #Delta is the speed of the #Options position, #Gamma is the acceleration.

A lot of chatter on my TL about the #edge in #OptionsTrading, specifically #OptionSelling.
A lot of good information but some mis-information being spread as well.

A #thread.
First off, #OptionSelling by itself is NOT an edge.

Simply by selling an instrument that decays in value over time, doesn't give one an edge towards profit. It is accompanied by short gamma and rising #volatility working "against" you.

The #volatility #edge or premium expresses itself when the underlying moves "less" than the move that is priced in the options.
