Hello guys! I hope you are doing well. As you know, I’m an options strategist, trading mostly with delta hedging strategies. From time to time, I share my strategy here on my blog. Today I’m writing this post to analyze the performance of the strategies we created in November 2022 and make a trading plan for December 2022 based on the current market conditions.
Before we jump directly to performance and trading plan, let me share why I prefer to trade with these delta hedging strategies.
Why trade with delta hedging strategies?
When I started my trading journey almost 12 years back, I started with options. I was buying options at that time. but in a few days, I came to realize that It’s not my cup of tea. So I shifted to futures and started learning chart reading.
In the next 4 years, I was at a stage where I can generate enough money to fulfill my monthly needs.
But In future trading, there is a big drawback. and that is a risk. Risk is comparatively high in futures trading. And if you want to utilize the full potential of the trend, then you have to carry your positions overnight.
But for a person like me who came from a humble background, it’s a little difficult to carry that much risk overnight. So from here, my journey starts to find a solution to my risk management.
I read a few books and articles available on the internet but I need someone who can provide me with handholding support during my live trades and can help me to make a trading plan with option strategies. Thanks to my Mentors who taught me how to use options to hedge my positions.
After that, there was no look back. The more I go deep, the more I realize that this is the trading plan I required or suits me.
Now, Why do I prefer to trade with these option strategies, especially delta hedging strategies?
As we knew that 70% of the time Market consolidates in range only. Only 30% time it gave you any trending movement. So If we create a trading plan that can help to generate a return in that 70% consolidation phase, then the 70% accuracy market itself is giving to us.
So that’s the reason I started trading with delta hedging because I don’t need movement or delta to make money, I only need theta or vega to generate my alpha.
I hope now you have understood why I started with delta hedging strategies and why I love to call myself a delta hedging option strategist.
Now let’s come to the performance of the option strategies we created in November 2022.
Performance of November and trading plan for December 2022
In November 2022, we created a total of 14 strategies. Few are Monthly expiry and few are Nifty and BankNifty in weekly expiry.
Out of these 14 strategies, mostly closed in profit and we closed the November expiry with a net 6% monthly return.
If you want to check the complete trade list and strategies, here is the report:
I have deployed 50 lakh as capital and generated 3 lakh rupees profit. Isn’t it a good return while keeping risk on the limited side? What do you say? type in the comment box.
Trading plan for December 2022
The market is currently trading with very low volatility, and when volatility is low, we may not receive a good premium.
But if you knew how to trade with volatility and which strategy works well, you don’t need to bother about anything else.
Always remember one thing: The market always gave your unexpected shocks or movement, but you have to learn how to trade all types of markets.
You can’t use the fact that you only trade volatile or low volatility as an excuse. You never know what is going to happen. Rather than waiting for the right market movement, learn how to trade all types of markets.
My Trading plan for December 2022: Because volatility is low I prefer to trade credit spreads with a narrow range. Like we did in BankNifty last 2 weeks in November. If Volatility increases, we can increase the range.
The second Plan is, I will find some directional trades and will create our modified collar strategies that I’m teaching in the Mentorship program.
If you want to learn these delta-hedging strategies and trade with me in live market sessions, You must enroll in our Mentorship program.
From Monday, We are going to deploy some Monthly income strategies in the live market sessions. So coming week will be highly valuable for those who want to take their options trading to a new level.
In case if you have any queries, feel free to type in the comment box. I love to solve all your queries.
Thank you for taking out the time and read this post.
Have a profitable Trading!
