Last month, the stock markets were in such a bad shape, that a Put of 2000 shares that I had sold of the Bajaj Finance 5800 strike price had devolved upon me and I was forced to take delivery. The stock was sinking fast and so I hurried to sell a Call at the same strike price of 5800.
Unfortunately, in the meantime, the markets have turned from aggressively Bearish to aggressively Bullish. Bajaj Finance shot up an incredible 10.6% today to close at Rs. 7076.
As today is the expiry, no adjustments are possible and I have no option but to give delivery at the strike price of Rs. 5800.
I suffered a (opportunity) loss of Rs. Rs. 23.71 lakhs. The loss is reduced to Rs. 19.35 lakh because I had sold some Puts to salvage the Calls.

"It is the worst day of my trading career," he said in a mournful tone.

I opened a Call Calendar at 38700CE. However, the Bank Nifty immediately plunged and breached my BEP of 38300. This forced me to open a Put Calendar at 38000PE. The Calendar is bleeding and I have already lost 2.48% MTM. However, if the Bank Nifty expires within the range and the ViX does not plunge much, I can take home a tidy profit.
