Hello guys, I hope you are doing well. In this edition of our weekly market newsletter (Weekly Indian Market Outlook), I will cover the weekly Indian market outlook, weekly chart analysis of the Nifty and BankNifty, and trading strategies for weekly income.
Before getting started on our weekly chart analysis and trading strategies, let’s talk about one of the main problems that the majority of people are currently experiencing. That is “Position Sizing”.
When it comes to trading options, one of the most important factors to consider is position sizing. This refers to the number of contracts you trade relative to the size of your account.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss the importance of position sizing and how it can impact your option trading strategy.

Important of position sizing in option trading
When trading options, your position size will have an impact on your overall risk and return profile. For example, if you buy one option contract for every ₹1,0000 in your account, you are essentially risking your entire account on that one trade. On the other hand, if you buy 10 option contracts for every ₹1,0000 in your account, your risk is spread out over a larger number of contracts and your potential return is also increased.
The key to successful option trading is to find the right balance between risk and return. By carefully considering your position size, you can help ensure that your overall trading strategy is risk-balanced and that you have the potential to generate returns that exceed your expectations.
Here are the 5 tips you should follow while considering position sizing:
- Consider your account size: The first thing you need to do is consider the size of your trading account. This will give you an idea of how much risk you can afford to take on. For example, if you have a ₹10,000 account, you shouldn’t be buying more than 10 option contracts.
- Consider your risk tolerance: Another important factor to consider is your risk tolerance. This will help you determine how many contracts you should buy. If you’re a risk-averse trader, you might want to buy fewer contracts. On the other hand, if you’re willing to take on more risk, you could buy more contracts.
- Consider the underlying security: When you’re considering position sizing, you also need to take into account the underlying security. This is because different securities will have different price movements. For example, a stock might move ₹1 for every 1% move in the underlying index. However, an option might only move ₹0.50 for every 1% move in the underlying index.
- Consider the time frame: The time frame you’re trading in will also impact your position sizing. For example, if you’re trading in a longer time frame, you might want to buy more contracts, and vice versa for the shorter timeframe.
- Consider your exit strategy: Finally, you need to consider your exit strategy. This will help you determine how many contracts you should buy. If you’re looking to exit your position quickly, you might want to buy fewer contracts. However, if you’re willing to hold your position for a longer period of time, you could buy more contracts.
When it comes to option trading, position sizing is an important factor to consider. By following the tips above, you can help ensure that your overall trading strategy is risk-balanced and that you have the potential to generate returns that exceed your expectations. By following these tips, you can help ensure that you’re considering position sizing in a way that is consistent with your overall trading strategy.
Other tips for the importance of position sizing in option trading:
- Review your goals and objectives: Before making any decisions on position sizing, it is important to review your goals and objectives. What are you hoping to achieve through option trading? What are your risk tolerance levels? What is your time frame for trading? By answering these questions, you can help narrow down the number of contracts that you should buy.
- Determine your exits: Another important factor to consider is your exit strategy. What is your plan for exiting your position? Will you take profits at a certain point? Will you exit if the underlying security reaches a certain price? By having a clear exit strategy, you can help ensure that you don’t over-expose yourself to risk.
- Consider the liquidity of the options market: When you’re trading options, it is important to consider the liquidity of the options market. This will help you determine how easy it will be to exit your position. If the options market is highly liquid, it will be easier to sell your position. However, if the options market is not as liquid, it may be more difficult to sell your position.
- Use a stop-loss: A stop-loss is an order that you can place with your broker that will automatically close your position
- Use limit orders: Limit orders are orders that you can place with your broker that will only execute at a certain price.
I hope these tips have been helpful. Remember, a volatile market can be challenging, but with the right approach, you can still be successful.
Weekly Chart Analysis and Trading Strategies:
The market had a gap-up opening to the week and experienced highly volatile sessions this whole week. However, on Friday, the Market was less volatile and enabled Nifty to close with a weekly profit of 2.27% and BankNifty to close with a profit of 3.76%.
Weekly Chart Analysis of Nifty and BankNifty
Now let’s look at the weekly chart first to know the important levels:
If you look at the weekly charts of Nifty and BankNifty, you can easily find that both indices have been trading in a range for the last year. And there is no clear sign of any breakout or breakdown. The broad range for Nifty is 15500–18000 and for BankNifty, it’s 32000–41800.
So we can say that the medium-term trend is sideways. We can follow the “Sell on Resistance and Buy on Support” strategy until we are not getting any fresh breakouts or breakdowns from the above-given range.
Daily Chart Analysis of Nifty and BankNifty
Let’s start with the Nifty chart first. The Nifty opened with a gap-up and closed above its important resistance level of 17405. and managed to stay above that level, which is a good sign for the bulls.
This breakout from 17405 has opened an upside range till 18100. 18100 is the level we need to keep in mind. If the Nifty manages to sustain above 17500, then we may see some more upside in the coming weeks. Below 17400, the Nifty may fall back into the 17000-17400 range.
Trade Plan for the coming week: If the Nifty manages to stay above 17500 this week, you can place a long bet above that level. I will share my trade on my Telegram Channel. You can follow that too.
BankNifty is also giving the same setup as Nifty is showing on the chart. Gave a breakout from its important resistance level, i.e., 39600. If we manage to sustain above 39600, then it may go till 41800 in the coming sessions.
Important support and resistance levels in BankNifty are 39500 and 41800, respectively. In BankNifty, we can maintain our Buy on Dips strategy. Let BankNifty go till 39600 first and then long it after a bullish candle on the daily chart.
Tip for the week: Don’t go long or short very aggressively. Let market give a proper indication and then entre in any trade.
