Comment on Option Strategy - Zerodha Trader

B Vamsi Krishna commented on 30 Sep 2016, 09:59 AM


I have a query regarding call option writing. For example I have 1 lakh rupees in my wallet. I want to write a NIFTY 8600 call(1 lot, qty: 75) at 100/- premium with NRML. Let us suppose it needs 40k as margin. So my order gets executed and I have 60k in my wallet.

Now, premium starts going up.

1. As it is going up, remaining 60k keeps reducing?
2. For example, that day premium ends at 120 and I am not buying it to exit. Next day morning how much will I have in my wallet?
3. Again on that day premium came to 80 and I buy and exits.

Now how much money I will have in my wallet after I exits..
As per my assumption, I will have 1,00,000 – 40,000 – (75×20) + (75×40) + 40,000 = 1,01,500. Am I correct?
