## Call Options (CE) Buying Example:

Let's assume you are bullish on Reliance stock and aim to make some profits using options.

After looking at the daily chart, a trader turns bullish on the stock and decides to buy a 2600 call option (CE) to make money.

But to become a successful options trader, knowing the probability of success and how much profit (if the plan goes right) in advance is always a good idea.

The payoff chart from Opstra gives the below useful information:

The probability of success is only 13.82%

The maximum loss is Rs.3,675

The maximum profit is unlimited (it depends on where the price closes on the expiry day)

The breakeven point occurs at 2615

Do you think this information helps to plan your options trades?

## Put Options (PE) Selling Example:

Let's assume a trader is bullish on Titan stock and aims to make some profits using options.

A gap was sustained for 4 trading days in the daily chart of Titan. Hence, as per the breakaway gap theory, it is bullish.

Therefore, a trader is bullish on the stock and decides to sell a 2100 put option (PE) to make money (PE selling is also a long trade in options).

Again it is a good idea to know the probability of success and how much profits (if the plan goes right) in advance.

The payoff chart from Opstra gives the below useful information:

The probability of success is 68.24%

The maximum loss is unlimited (due to the naked selling of PE)

The maximum profit is Rs.14,194

The breakeven point occurs at 2063

It's quite certain that this information helps to plan your options trades.
