Infy Gaps

Most of traders use the option route to trade Infosys so am discussing what option data is revealing 1 days before results.

Option Market Analysis

The implied volatility of ATM options is at  39-42%, which implies that traders expect a sharp swing in Infosys shares on Friday. Option premiums are now so high that the stock will have to move by well more than 7% for straddle buyers to profit. In a straddle position, traders buy both a call and a put option, expecting to profit from a sharp move in either direction but with such high IV’s it does not make a good risk to reward ratio to Buy  straddle and hence traders should avoid the same.

  1. Thanks It stands corrected.

    Well Since IV are not high as 60-70 but still high in range of 39-42 and will increase further tomorrow trading session , Also the main task for NR will be to bring down the volatility of stock like he did last time,so i would stay away from options. There are lot other trade opportunities available.


  2. One More Question last time i remember IV’s were near 60-70 i think….Shorting Straddle gave gud money..Do you see that chance now sir..
