Hello Friends. My name is Michael Gonsalves. I have enjoyed reasonable success with Options strategies. I made Rs. 2.5 Cr in FY 2019-20 and Rs. 1.65 Cr till date in FY 2020-21 (see proof). I am eager to learn more and also to impart my learnings to others. If you have any queries, please ask. I will answer soon.

The Calendar Options strategy is also a relatively easy strategy to manage if the markets are not very turbulent.

I created a spread in the Nifty at 17250 and added another at 17300.

At the EOD, the strategy has yielded a gain of 1.69%.

The gains are quite hefty if the Nifty settles between 17099 to 17487. The ViX should either remain stable or rise but no fall dramatically.

The Nifty Calendar Options strategy is presently at a profit of Rs. 78000 which is nearly 4% of the capital. It is time to book profits and shift the entire calendar to next week & month.

After yesterday's expiry (9th September), the profits stand at Rs. 1.23 lakh. I have rolled over the short options to 17400 and 17450 of next week's (16th September) expiry.

I closed the position today for a profit of 1,18,000. I did this because there were too many strikes and I was losing track of what was going on. I will enter new positions with the freed capital.
