June 2024 Trading Performance: Detailed Profit and Loss Analysis

June was a month of high volatility. Due to election results, we saw VIX has made a high of 31.71. High Volatility brings good opportunities for option sellers but also brings high risk too.

We saw a very high premium this month. It was a tough time as options sellers for us. Most of the days VIX was going up and lowering the impact of theta decay which was the only source for options sellers.

But despite having high volatility, we managed to end up with a profit of 1.1% this month.

June 2024 Trading Performance

Compared to April and May, we made less return in June.

The reason is: that I only followed my newly developed two delta-neutral option strategies (Delite & Ranger) for Nifty and BankNifty that auto-adjust based on the market behaviour.

These strategies manage to handle the market fluctuations more effectively compare to traditional fixed stoploss type rule-based strategies.

One thing I want to mention here: 👇

This time, I followed these strategies more and took less manual traders compared to May 2024. I also made a mistake that cost me huge. I will share more about this mistake in the next section.

Beyond Profits: June's Lessons and Missteps in Options Trading

Trading isn't just about winning trades; it's about learning and evolving with the market. While June had its profitable moments, it also served as a stark reminder of the importance of discipline and constant vigilance. Here's a deeper look at the challenges I faced:

Mistake 1: Trading Against Rules: Lessons from FinNifty Expiry

I have a well-defined strategy for trading volatile instruments with expiry options. It's a calculated approach that has served me well in the past. However, the temptation of a seemingly low-risk, high-reward opportunity in the FinNifty, tricked me.

Ignoring my own rules, I entered in a live trade based in FinNifty. Although I was following my FinNifty strategy for more than 6 months, still I wasn't convinced enough to take live trade.

But I broke my own rule. The result? A painful reminder that straying from a proven plan can be costly.

This experience reinforced the importance of sticking to a well-defined strategy. It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of a potential trade, but disciplined traders know that emotions have no place in sound decision-making.

Mistake 2: Overreliance on Automation: Pitfalls of Algorithmic Trading

Automated trading tools are a valuable asset for any trader. They can execute trades with lightning speed, and remove emotion from the equation. However, these tools are not without their weaknesses.

In June, a technical glitch in my algo trading system led to a series of unattended open orders. These orders were executed at inopportune times, resulting in unnecessary losses. This incident highlighted the critical importance of maintaining oversight, even when using automated tools.

It's crucial to remember that even the most sophisticated algorithms are only as good as the data they receive and the parameters they're programmed to follow. Regular monitoring and manual intervention may be necessary to ensure that the tool is functioning as intended and that your positions are properly managed.

These setbacks underscore the ever-evolving nature of the markets. No trader is immune to mistakes, but the ability to identify them, learn from them, and adapt accordingly is what separates the successful from the struggling. June may have presented challenges, but the lessons I learned are invaluable as I refine my strategy and approach for the months to come.

July 2024: My Optimized Nifty & Bank Nifty Options Trading Strategy

June's market highlighted the limitations of my previous delta-neutral strategies, "Delite" and "Ranger." While effective in range-bound markets, they faltered during trends. Additionally, their reliance on a single automation tool (Stoxxo) posed a risk should technical issues arise, as they did last month.

To address these challenges, I've revamped my approach for July, optimizing my TradePik's Premium Strategies and incorporating an additional option buying strategy. This diversified portfolio, tested with a 15 lakh capital, aims to enhance overall performance and flexibility:

TradePik's Premium Strategies Performance

The new basket comprises three option selling strategies and two option buying strategies, combining the strengths of both approaches.

Key Adjustments for July:

  • Diversification: I'll allocate 50% of my capital to the new optimized basket and 50% to the "Delite & Ranger" basket. This provides a balance between proven strategies and adaptability to varying market conditions.
  • Flexibility: The new strategies are compatible with multiple algo trading tools, including AlgoTest and Quantiply. This mitigates the risk of technological disruptions and allows for seamless switching between platforms.

This multi-faceted strategy seeks to capitalize on both trending and range-bound markets, while ensuring resilience against potential technical setbacks. I believe this approach strikes a balance between risk management and profit potential.
