A quick 🧵 on the potential economic impact of the rail strikes.

In short, not a game-changer, but certainly another blow the UK could do without... 🙄 (1/5)

#RailStrikes
Unions must give warning, so there is some time to make alternative plans.

The series of 1-day #strikes (Tue 21, Thur 23, Sat 25) might be less disruptive than a single, prolonged stoppage, because some customers may be able to reschedule their use during the breaks... (2/5)
Some of the costs to the economy could also be reduced by ‘home working’, and by the diversion of leisure spending to other activities.

Nonetheless, there will be significant disruption to passenger traffic, and possibly to freight, including supplies of essential goods... (3/5)

- In practice, US led assassinations and overthrows of legitimate governments and interference with elections may be just as significant as the actual bombings listed here.

#BiodiversityCrisis, etc.
As the system focuses on #Economic Growth, #Corporate Interest & Businesses First while exploiting the #Labor who are treated like hell & not paid a #LivingWage nor anything while everything to basically live is practically an Expense under #Capitalism.

#Straddles vs #Strangles ( Sell only )

These are the most common #Options strategies when one would start with #OptionsTrading.

Let’s understand from a broader perspective what’s the difference between these two.
Would not like to discuss the construction difference between them if you don’t know stop trading #options

#Straddles

You get higher premium so pnl would be higher compared to #strangles

But from where are you getting higher premiums is that your selling 0.5 #delta.
So probability of one going wrong is always 50% so to simply put one side is goin to get stuck in a #straddle but then market tends to #flucuate a lot so there is always the case of #meanreversion if you have selected the #strike rightly.

Theoretically, #VIX and Implied Volatility tends to go down with a rising #Nifty in case when there is no known event. Nowadays there are many #traders writing #options #strangles etc. I doubt many have seen the 2010 move or 2009 election day.
#Nifty went up from 5600 to 6000 + in 2-3 weeks and #VIX went up from 16 to 24. #IVs for #OTMs would have gone bonkers in Sept 2010. #Nifty #Options #Strangles. If somebody can put up actual price moves of #Option #Strikes Image
