Option Selling Trading Strategy To Generate Regular Income [9.20 Short Straddle]

Do you want an option selling trading strategy that can generate regular income?

Then try this 9.20 Short Straddle option selling strategy.

We know that the market trends nearly 30% of the time and the remaining 70% of the time it traded in sideways.

That is the advantage of option sellers because premiums will decay more when the stock market stays range-bound.

However, option selling carries unlimited risk. So to mitigate the unlimited losses, you need to keep fixed stop loss.

If the market tends to remain silent, then theta decay will help you to make money. In case, it moves wildly on either side, our stop loss will protect us.

So, this option selling trading strategy is awesome to generate regular monthly income.

At 9.20 AM, short one lot of ATM options every day with a 25% stop loss and 50% Target on each leg.

Select weekly expiry and short both Call ATM and Put ATM. You need to choose weekly expiry and not monthly expiry as the decay is faster in weekly options.

Suppose, if you short ATM CE options at 300, then your stop-loss is 375 and Target is 150. Either your stop-loss gets hit or the target gets hit. In case both stop loss and target don’t get hit, then you exit at 3 PM.

Always remember that you need to exit only the strike that hits the stop loss and not both legs.

When tested with one lot, the returns are simply awesome.

It has ended up in profits in almost every month which has been tested from 2017 to 2022.
