Read to know how you can trade Infosys (Infy) on quarterly results day – this can be traded after the results are declared.
Refer my yesterday’s email on trade to be taken on Infosys tomorrow.
One of my subscribers informed me this – “Infosys results are to be declared before opening of Markets on Monday. If the strategy is on Infosys, can we still take position after results declaration as market would have already moved in one direction.”
I have confirmed and I see that Infosys will announce results at around 8.45 – 9 am tomorrow. In that case the movement will occur as soon as markets open. There will be a gap opening. The directional trade of my course needs movement – it does not matter where. Those who traded on Friday will get lucky. If the movement has already happened, then its better not to take that trade.
The news is out by that time means VIX also would have dropped as on Friday it rose by almost 20% before closing. So there is no point in selling options. It is now almost 3 weeks to expiry – we have enough time on hands.
How To Trade Infosys On Quarterly Results Day
If the Infosys drops too much say more than 5% – just buy a Future and hedge with buying ATM PUT in the hope that the trade will be profitable in the next few days.
And of course if Infy opens more than 5% up – sell a Future and buy ATM call in the hope that Infy will fall and the trade will be profitable before expiry.
Where to take profits out?
Since I am a 3% man – take profits out when you are making 3% on margin blocked. 🙂
What is the maximum loss in the trade?
The premium you pay to buy options – thatâ€™s it – therefore you can stay long in trade.
When to take Stop Loss?
No need since the trade is hedged and max loss is defined.
Why am I taking the opposite trade?
Infy traders are known to give knee jerk reaction to quarterly results which makes the price either too cheap for short term or too costly – both will correct over time.
What happens if you make a profit?
Just say a Thank You. Thatâ€™s enough for me. 🙂
What happens if you make a loss?
Yes thatâ€™s a possibility thatâ€™s the reason I am asking you to hedge and not trade naked. The real idea is you learn the benefits of hedging.
Do not lose money friends – the stock market is there to help us increase our wealth NOT destroy it. So please trade sensibly.
Still I will be sorry if you make a loss in this trade, but my intention is to help. Stock market trading is a risk and that risk you will have to take. However with hedging your risk gets minimized.
