The “Hero to Zero” trade strategy is a high-risk options trading method that involves buying deeply out-of-the-money (OTM) options near their expiry, which are trading close to zero due to their low probability of expiring in-the-money. The idea is that if the underlying asset makes a sudden and significant move in your favor, these options can yield a substantial payoff.


Here’s a detailed explanation of how to implement this strategy:

Initial Investment: Start with a small amount of capital that you’re willing to risk.

Educate Yourself: Understand the basics of options trading, including calls, puts, strike price, expiration dates, and option pricing.

Analysis and Selection: Conduct thorough research to identify potential opportunities in the options market.

Identify Hero Zero Options: On the expiry day, navigate the option chain and select the call option strike price that is in-the-money (ITM) just above the at-the-money (ATM) option, and a put option (ITM) just below the ATM option.

Premium Range: Look for premiums within the range of Rs 10 to Rs 25, which is considered the ideal range for Hero Zero trades.

Timing: Execute these trades after 2:00 pm and before 3:30 pm on the expiry day, as this is when these opportunities are believed to arise1.

Please note, while the potential gains can be significant, the probability of success is generally low, and most of these contracts expire worthless. It’s crucial to only invest what you can afford to lose and to have a solid understanding of the options market before attempting this strategy.
