A low-risk options strategy in LICHSGFIN

LICHSGFIN Chart today

Before going further in options strategy, let me share why I choose that stock?

After a big downside movement, LICHSGFIN is trying to sustain near its very crucial and strong support zone (355 – 350). So further downside we can expect only once it gave a breakdown and sustain below 350.

Till then it may consolidate here or we can see some upside movement due to short covering because we have monthly Expriry next week. So we can say that it will remain in the range of 350 – 390.

The second reason to choose that stock is: Whenever we saw such type of big movement, Normally IV starts increasing. When IV is high, That’s the best time to initiate a credit spread with -ve vega.

Open Interest analysis for LICHSGFIN

Open Interest analysis - LICHSGFIN

Based on options chain data, 350-340 is acting as the strong support zone while 370-380 is acting as a strong resistance zone. PCR of all strikes is at 0.33 which indicates an oversold region. Max pain is at 370, indicating expiry will be around 370 (keep tracking max pain level, it may change with price movement).

So Open interest is also giving us the same range we were looking for based on charts. Our range should be 350-380.

One more thing we need to keep in mind that, Next week is expiry and any breakout or breakdown will create a problem. Because due to theta decay we will not get enough credit with adjustments. That’s the reason I’m keeping a very low risk in this strategy.

In this strategy, we have a low risk and our breakevens are 353 & 386. Now as you know next week is expiry and gamma will be more aggressive in the expiry week. So take this trade only if you can afford to lose that amount.

Possible adjustments

The first thing is, hold this strategy till LICHSGFIN is trading between 350 – 380. You can square off the entire legs once your it is sustaining below your brekevens.

You can follow these adjustments too. Roll down your Call spread to 340 after a breakdown from 350. Same thing you can do with PUT Spread. Roll Up your Put spread to 400 after a successful breakout from 390.

An important thing to keep in mind: I suggest better book some loss and close the strategy if stock is trading beyond your Breakevens.
