Game of Positions: Friday Index F&O Trade data analysis

NSE:NIFTY   Nifty 50 Index
This is not a recommendation.
Trading in Futures & Options involves real money and high risk. Hence there is a need to do more study before you randomly take a decision.

Just like in a game of Chess, when you plan to make a move, you need to factor in opposition's game strategy.
Using the same principle, when trading in Futures & Options, we should be aware of how 3 major participants i.e
- retail participants,
- Proprietary traders
have positioned themselves. DIIs have not been factored in here as they have limited access to F&O trade

Futures data
• Retail participants squared off 142 Long contracts & squared off 2.71K Short contracts
• FIIs squared off 5.99K Long contracts & added 6.89K Short contracts
• Pro traders added 5.06K Long contracts & squared off 6.20K Short Contracts

Call option
• Retail traders added 4.26 Lakh Call Longs & added 3.91 Lakh Call shorts
• FIIs added 54.92K Call Longs & added 70.17K Call short
• Pro traders added 1.14 Lakh Call Longs & added 1.34 Lakh Call shorts

Put option
• Retail traders added 2.24 Lakh Put Long & added 2.79 Lakh Put shorts
• FIIs added 62.13K Put Long & added 40.61K Put shorts
• Pro traders added 89.54K Put Long & added 67.18K Put Short contracts

- Retail Participants exited from Index Futures shorts and in Options are Net Call Buyers and Net Put sellers (bias is bullish)
- FIIs on the other hand exited from Index Futures Long and added Index Futures Short positions and in Options are Net Call sellers and Net Put buyers (bias is bearish)
- Pro traders have taken long position in Index Futures and exited from Short positions. However, they have hedged their position in Options by being Net Call sellers and Net Put buyers (Neutral)

Let us see who turns out to be the winner in this Game of Positions on Monday.
