If Your Future Is In Futures - Then No Options

There are many attributes you require if you want to be a successful Stock Futures' player. You need deep pocket, strong heart, accurate judgement, nimble footed, firmly flexible mind ( sounds oxymoronic !) , et al. But above all these you need Lady Luck on your side. And those who have that, they should not fritter away the opportunity to indulge in the game of stock futures. For such individuals some wonderful opportunities exist as of today which are presented as under. Take a look.

Ambuja Cement
In case initially market shows weakness on 08 Oct 09, then sell Oct futures at 96.25 for an intra-day target of 94. Since lot size is 4124 you can decide to book quick profit at 95 also. The other scenario is that the market shows initial exuberance of Reliance 1:1 bonus share and opens with bullish strength; then sell Oct futures of the scrip at 100 and cover your position at 97.5/98.5.

ICSA
If market opens with bearish look then buy Oct futures at 200.5 and then cover the position intra-day at 210. Since lot size is 1200 you can decide to exit position at 206 also. However if market opens with a bullish flurry then buy at 206 and sell at 210/217. With a little help from the market on 08 Oct 09 you may even see ICSA touch 221.

BHEL
With weak market opening buy Oct futures of BHEL of lot size 150 at 2415 and then cover it intra-day at 2465/2500. On the other hand if market opens on a strong note then buy Oct futures of the scrip at 2470 for a target of 2500/2560. With strong market continuing through the day BHEL may touch 2600 also.
