The weekly strength indicator RSI and the momentum oscillator Stochastic both are moving upwards and is quoting above its reference line indicating positive bias.Q) Any particular strategy which traders could execute for the week?
A) The strategy which we are suggesting for the week is a Bullish strategy namely CALL LADDER, that involves buying of one lot of Nifty 10,800Call @199, and selling of one lot each of 11,000 Call @ 111 & one lot of 11,200 Call @ 54.
All the options have monthly expiry of 30th June 2020. We have observed that the highest OI concentration on the call side prevails in the above-mentioned strike price indicating a probable resistance zone & to take the advantage of the same at low cost we are suggesting this strategy.
The maximum profit of Rs 12,500 will be attained at 11,200 levels, while the strategy will start making losses above 11,350.
The cost of the strategy involves an outflow of Rs 2,500 which is the maximum loss if Nifty trades & remains below 10,800 levels, however, above 11,350, its advisable to exit the strategy in total to avoid ‘unlimited’ losses.
The break-even points of the strategy are 11,367 on the upside, and 10,833 on the downside.Q) Any top 3-5 stocks which investors can bet on in the coming week? Please give a small rationale with target and stop-loss?
