Sensibull is an options trading platform that simplifies the options strategy creation by suggesting a number of ways for your particular market view. Sensibull provides all the essential information like risk, volatility, and profit/loss potential before you enter the options trade.
For example, suppose you think that Nifty will go up 200 points in 14 days but you are not sure which option strategy will work the best.
Then you can go to the Sensibull platform and enter your market projections and hit the go button. Sensibull will create specific buy/ sell option strategies with details of profit, ROI, breakeven, max profit/loss for each strategy.
How Does Sensibull Work
Sensibull is an independent startup with its own proprietary (Sensibull) options trading platform.
Sensibull has tied up with brokers like Zerodha, 5paisa and Motilal Oswal to help you trade directly on the selected options strategy from the platform instead of copying the strategy.
To get the best options strategy, first you need to have a view for a particular stock or index. The view can be bullish (the stock prices will rise in the coming days) or bearish ( the prices are going to fall in the coming days).
For example, suppose you think that Nifty will be up by 200 points in the next couple of weeks, i.e you have a bullish view on Nifty. Sensibull captures this view in terms of market levels.
Like, if the Nifty is at 9300 then you need to enter the following details.
You need to choose a particular stock or index for which you want to create an option strategy.
You have choices to indicate your market view like Nifty levels “Not above”, “Below”, “Not Below” and “Above”. Select the most appropriate market levels for your view. Like Nifty “Not below” 9300 or Nifty “Above” 9500.
Nifty target level
Enter the price you believe the underlying stock or index will achieve. In our case, it will be 9500 for Nifty.
Enter the date in which you think that the underlying stock or index will achieve the price target. That is 14 days from now for said example.
After which you just need to press the “Go” button and Sensibull will provide you a list of options trading strategies in line with your market views.
Along with the strategy, Sensibull will also show details like the profit potential, capital required, return percentage.
When you have selected one of the options strategy, then you can place the order directly from the Sensibull platform.
The platform is integrated with your broker terminal and places the selected trade directly without requiring you to key in the order details once again on the broker trading platform.
