Why I trade futures over options

Hello autists.
I thought I shall share some tips on why I trade futures instead of options. If it is not your cup of tea, feel free to ignore this. After all, everybody's risk appetite is different. Tailor it to your Personal Risk Tolerance.
Note: I am not a financial advisor. These are my ideas alone and anyone looking to go through with this must consult their advisor.
Before i get started, I should warn newbies that it is not advisable to start off with futures. I have been doing this for 2 years now, starting off with 2L and saved up my salary every month to put it in my account. I realized that Mutual Funds were managed by tards and I do not want to enjoy a yatch when i am 60. But before all this, I started off with conventional stocks and slowly dipped my feet into futures.
Pre-requisites: 1. Some understanding of your emotional levels (do you immediately square off your position if things are not looking good, or do you wait for it to play out? ) 2. Do you have a trade setup you trust? Do you keep a log of how it performs and how it does in a bull or bear market? 3. Is the money in your trading account something you can afford to lose? If not, save up more and come back.
Futures: I shall not get into the details of what futures are, and why it was started in the commodity business. Basically, for brevity, the equity futures go by lot size. For example, Reliance has a lot size of 500. If reliance is trading at 1000, the margin given by zerodha is Rs. 2,00,000 approx to hold these shares overnight. For intraday, you need a margin of ~1Lakh.
Imagine, if you wanted to buy the same amount of shares you would need an account size of Rs. 5L. Now, with great power comes great responsibility. Lets say, there is a huge oil fight and oil prices drop. The price of reliance drops 20% to 800. If you had bought the shares, your account size also drops 20% to 4L. But if you had bought futures, your account size of 2Lakhs now loses 1Lakh, which is a 50% loss. The plus side is, you can also make the same if you are right.
Now why do i trade futures instead of options:
Lets say my account size is 2.5 Lakhs, and I want to buy reliance and hold it overnight. 1. 2 lakhs is taken up for my margin, and i have a balance of 50k. If the next day, reliance goes up by Rs.20. I would have made a profit of Rs. 10000 (500x20). Now if i by the end of the night, my account size becomes 2.6Lakhs. That is i can use the full 2.6L margin now.
This is very important for me. These profits are already realized in your account. And this is called Mark to Market (MTM). Note: in options, the profits you make are unrealized. They are sitting in your account until you square it off.
  1. If i were to buy the same amount in shares (for 2 lakhs). The next day, i can only trade with 50k in my account. The 2 lakhs do not show up until i square off. But when i am holding futures, and the next trading day starts, I convert my overnight positions to intraday, thus saving up 50% of the margin. When things dont go my way, I immediately square off and use the full margin for my next trade.
  2. If you are buying options, you need to be right about the direction of price movement AND the time it would get there (also called as delta and theta). Implied volatility also comes into play, meaning, when a herd of people are betting the same, you will still lose if you are with the herd. In futures, you only have to be right about the direction.
  3. You ever get a thrill when the VIX is sky high? with so much volatility you profits keep shooting up and your losses are devastating at the same time? Do you enjoy that feeling? Then fuck it, you have a gambling addiction. But, thats how i feel like trading future. Even in a low volatility environment my losses can wipe away 10% of my account in a single trade. Know yourself first.
Hope this helped a few autists.
Good luck trading.

Rant on certain questions asked in the trading community

There are certain questions that get repeated in the trading community
What is the capital required? Capital deployed?
These questions make 0 sense and serve no purpose.
Eg: If i make 1 lac and i share the screenshot. And i caption it on twitter as "Look I had 20k in my zerodha account before the day started , and now it is 1 lac" PAISA 5x ho gaya.
That invites a lot of attention. But let's break this further.
The importance of risk management:
Maximum traders are trading with a risk of 1-2% of TOTAL capital. That means if their capital is 1lac, they are risking close to 1-2% of overall capital.
Maximum traders trade with a risk:reward of 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 (proper autists only)
That means they are risking 1000rs to make 1000rs reward . Risk to reward=1:1 (RR=1:1)
Now. Let's go back to my first retarded example. "I MADE 1 LAC WITH 20K. LOOK AT MY ZERODHA BALANCE"
Now, to make 1 lac I would be risking say 1 lac. RR=1:1 To risk 1 lac i would have to have a capital of 1crore (assuming i trade at 1% risk per trade)
Now maximum traders have funds in various accounts- equity account , commodity accounts , and with some other brokers, just in case to prevent random buttfucking from a broker.
So, if you see a profit screenshot, STOP asking "What is the capital required" That doesn't make sense. The person could be trading with 50x margin. It does not make sense.
The only logical question that makes sense is: 1.On average what kind of Risk:Reward are you playing with? 2. How much of your total capital do you risk per trade?
It's all probabilities With 1% risk per trade you get to YOLO 100 times before you lose everything With 2% risk per trade you get to YOLO 50 times before you lose everything
With 5% risk per trade you get to YOLO 20 times before you lose everything
With 10% risk, just don't .STOP.

Zerodha balance calculations

I don't know if it is only me, but Zerodha's P/L and tradebook and ledger really needs a lot more work to be properly usable. I trade solely on equities, and for the love of my life, I still cannot get a clear idea of the charges incurred for each transaction.
Let's say I have Rs 5000 as my opening balance on a fine morning. I haven't placed any sell order within a week, and so, there is no chance of DP charges. I place a bunch of buy orders, amounting to about Rs. 4990, they go through, I am happy and go to sleep. I wake up the next day, and instead of Rs 10 balance, it's negative.
Obviously, going through the contract note gives me an idea of additional charges incurred. Now, to add to the problem, Zerodha Console's P/L needs a lot of time to be updated. The DP charges incurred on 20/05/2020 has still not been updated in P/L. I understand the system of eventual consistency, but, seriously? 4 days and it still hasn't been updated? Also, Kite app's funds doesn't seem to be up-to-date. According to my ledger, it turns out I placed buy orders with negative balance, where I know for a fact that Kite rejects any CNC buy order if I don't have adequate margin. The entire system seems to be kludgey.
Currently. if you want to calculate and recheck your balance, you have to move between Ledger and Tradebook in Console, and Contracts in email. Is it not possible for Zerodha to provide a simple order-wise breakdown of transactions, along with incurred charges? Or am I missing something?

Sebi extends timing for trading in equity derivatives till 11:55 pm, announces additional risk management measures

Sebi extends timing for trading in equity derivatives till 11:55 pm
Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has allowed stock exchanges to extend timing of equity derivatives trading till 11:55 pm with effect from October 1, 2018.
The move is aimed to enable integration of trading of various segments of securities market at the level of exchanges, Sebi said. Trading in equity derivatives will take place from 9:00 am to 11:55 pm, similar to the trading hours for commodity derivatives segment which are presently fixed between 10:00 am and 11:55 pm starting October.
Sebi announces additional risk management measures for derivatives segment
These measures pertain to margin collection requirement and computation of liquid net worth for the equity derivatives segment. The provisions of the circular will be effective from June 1.
With regards to client's margin collection requirement in the equity derivatives segment, SEBI said that clearing members or trading members should include initial margin, exposure margin or extreme loss margin, calendar spread margin and mark to market settlements. Client margins are required to be compulsorily collected and reported to exchange or clearing corporation.
This is likely to have a negative impact on option writers and traditional brokers. The initial margin required for the positions is computed using a software called SPAN (Standard Portfolio Analysis of Risk). SPAN margin covers almost of the risk for of the day. Exposure margin is the margin charged over and above the SPAN margin which is the discretion of the broker. Failure to have requisite SPAN margin in the account can result in penalty being levied by the exchanges.
“These changes will impact the brokers who collect minimum margins for F&O trading especially option writers” said Nitin Kamath, founder and CEO, Zerodha. “Now brokers will have to collect span margin, exposure margin and MTM loses upfront, while the penalty on margin shortages is huge”.
