Comment on STT Trap - Options Expiry - NSE BSE MCX-SX

Ah, it doesn’t work like that. In your case, the option will settle at 18 and there will be a STT of 10 points and you get back 8 points. If we lapse the option(do not exercise), it will get settled at 0. There is no easy way to make money in the market, everyone would have bought it at 6 and tripled the money otherwise :).
