what kind of markets have these been .. a slight news of hope is causing stocks to rally to so much amount which they used to rally in a year .
As i write this Citigroup Corp shares have risen 68% in just 1.5 hrs of trading . 68% in a day !!
That’s a kind of return which mutual funds are really jealous of . Last month when there was some bad news about UNITECH , it plunged by 50% in a day only to recover back 40% the next day ..
Last quarter DLF lost 33% in 2 days on the news of US FDA banning its drugs in US . and then it again came back to its normal levels .
When DLF lost for 2 days , I had seen DLF PUT options went up 50 times in 36 hrs …and on the third day when it was up again by 20% , then its CALL options went up by another 5 times . means if you got everything correct and bought call and put options at right time , you could have made 5 Crores ($1 million) with 4 lacs of money ($8000) . that’s 25000% return in 60 hrs . there is an assumption that you bought things at right time which is almost impossible … but with little luck and study at least 1000% was possible for sure …
I thought of buying DLF puts after it fell for 1st day , but because of fear , i didn’t buy it .. and it went up by 800% next day ( i remember it correct , it went up from Rs 4-5 to Rs 40) , that’s 800-900% return in 2 hrs .
I am sure Citigroup option traders would either have made a killing or killed themselves . 🙂
Anyways , options are extremely dangerous products , its not advisable to get into them unless you are sure what you are doing ..
