Comment on Basics on Options Shorting/Writing

Hi Nithin,

This blog is very informative and useful.
I have one question here. Let s say today at the close 6500 CE is 85. If I short it at 100, and nifty expires at 6340. at that time i am sure this call price would be around 0.05. At that time do i need to buy it back to earn profit or it is okay even if I don’t buy it.

the same for the loss side also. if it expires at 6900 .. at that also do i need to cover my position or just let it go. If I don’t cover it, how much would i have pay for the STT?

Thanks,
Raj…
