I don't known much about options. Is max risk calculated thus:

12700 - 12650 = 50

premium on the Long Put (12650) = 34.5

Max Risk = 84.5 points?

price will be 50 for 12650 put today (when price reaches 1.2700) , it will be cheaper as days pass

100 points risk

By wednesday you may be able to buy put for 25.

To what extent is 12650 a technical level? A function of the option premium? and a function of your R:R strategy?

If it drops , it touched 1.2650 last time , double bottom there.
If I have stop loss at 1.2650 , then if touches I lose without an option.

Option just gives me the holding time for a week.Trade may go to 1.2600 and rebound to 12800

foroom lluzers started this thread I use options as protection , just in case market falls 30% within a few weeks .I only risk 15% of my capital in this strategy.


By using options I limit my risk
