"One should construct a bull spread here, in which the trader could buy the 320 Call, which is available at around Rs 8 and sell the 340 Call at around Rs 3. The cost of construction on this bull spread would come around Rs 5 and the maximum possible gains that a trader could have is around Rs 15," he said in an interview to CNBC-TV18.

He suggested buying the 740 Put, which was available at around Rs 24. One can buy this Put with a target of around Rs 40.
