May22-W2: The strike which I should have let go  

The downtrend was written on the wall and many of my blogs. Nifty was sliding heavily and I was going fine. The strike of 15900 PE started giving problems. To counter the problem, I opted for mean reversion and sold 16100 PE on Wednesday. The plan was a success and I exited from 16100 PE.

However, I did not exit from 15900 PE. Why? Because I stupidly believed in the Thursday expiry. Also, I did not want to have a red figure on my otherwise super green P&L. I was in a profit of around Rs. 65K on Wednesday.

Nifty showed no mercy for my foolish behavior. It crashed and burned. I added fuel to the fire by again opting for mean reversion. This is despite knowing well that the strategy won’t work at all. I eventually ended up with a loss of around Rs. 45K on that strike.

A known lesson got revised. A strike which gave problem will continue to give problem. Exit it at the earliest chance
