When to use Bearish Diagonal Call Spread in Nifty?

34 sec read

What is a Bearish Diagonal Call Spread?

Bearish Diagonal Call spread is neutral to bearish strategy which is executed by buying long-dated in the money call option and concurrently selling short-dated out of the money call option.

In Nifty futures on monday morning price opened with a big gap down and trading 500 points lower and also broken the recent trendline levels and the immediate trading sentiment turned negative.

The objective is to trade a short term setup for the expiry with a reasonable risk reward ratio especially in a fearful and rising volatile environment.

Bear Call diagonal spread creation

Short 1 lot of 9300CE – Current week expiry @ 188/lot
Long 1 lot of 9400CE – next week expiry @ 232/lot

Breakeven levels are at 8860 – 9578 levels and the strategy also has limited risk and limited reward style which suits execution especially after a big gap down day where you have to come up with controlled thinking.
