and so on.....

Net PnL : -14+28-14+26-17+24-7+17-10+17-36+17 = 31.

Net PnL per lot : Rs 2,325
Margin required per lot (NRML) : Around 1, 40 ,000 for both call and put.
No. of days in the above eg : 23.
Return : 1.6% for 23 days.
Annualised return : 26%.
A capital of Rs 10 lacs would provide an income of Rs 23k plus.

Assumptions :
In the above example, all prices taken at close of the day. Hence actual trading might not replicate the above return. There could be increase or decrease depending on the exact time of trade during the day. The above example assumes current month's maturity. Income can be increased by opting for next month maturity.

Risk factors:
This strategy is naked sale of call and put. Hence theoretically risk is unlimited and unknown while returns are limited and known. However, the unlimited loss scenario is a 6 sigma event, which is the underlying strength of writing options IF RE-ADJUSTMENT IS DONE AS AND WHEN REQUIRED. This strategy might end up in loss if there is a very significant gap up / down beyond the premium received.

Important:
I have not backtested this strategy. Use at your own risk. The objective of this is to share info and not a recommendation to trade.
Trading is my passion.
