Strategy: We advise traders to consider a long strangle on Tata Steel. The strategy can be initiated by buying 1060-strike put and 1160-strike call. These options closed with a premium of ₹24.25 and ₹13.80 respectively. As the market lot is 425 shares, this strategy will cost traders ₹16,171.25, which will be the maximum loss one can suffer. Maximum loss will happen if Tata Steel moves and settles in the ₹1,060-1,160 range.

However, profit potential is huge, if Tata Steel swings wildly in single direction i.e., either up or down. A close above ₹1,198.05 or below ₹1,021.95 will turn the position profitable. We advise traders to exit the position with a loss of ₹9,500 or at a profit if ₹13,500.

Follow-up: As advised, close the short Bank Nifty option and hold the farther month long option

Note: The recommendations are based on technical analysis and F&O positions. There is a risk of loss in trading.
