We posted just a day back about an experimental we had taken on December 5th. It was an arbitrage between Tata Steel’s partially paid share, as a long term call option, and a near term call option, to target at 4% return in a month.
As it turns out, a furious rally in Tata Steel means we closed the trade today, in 11 days. This is what we posted:
Exiting the Tata Steel Trade for Rs. 22,100 profit.
This effectively gives us Rs. 13 profit per share. Size: 1700 shares. We exit at a decent profit of Rs. 22,000 in 11 days.
(Amount invested was Rs. 5 lakh or so, so about 4.4% as a return.)
All such opportunities are interesting, and they might not exist all the time. We recently had:
These are relatively short-term trades, and in those little time frames, the risk-reward is compelling. We don’t often lose (but we have lost in the past, so it’s not guaranteed) but each time, we look at the equation and try to build a high probability of a decent return.
We’ll look for a repeat of the Tata Steel Trade if it makes sense, using January options. Or other concepts that might look interesting, and you’ll see this detailed in #experimentals on Slack. But for now, we have just one open idea, and hopefully that helps close out this year in a fun manner.
