The Calmar ratio is a gauge of the performance of your strategy. It is a function of the fund’s average compounded annual rate of return versus its maximum drawdown.

Statistically, Calmar Ratio =  Net P&L/Max Drawdown

The higher the Calmar ratio the better with anything over 0.50 is considered to be good. A Calmar ratio of 3.0 to 5.0 is really good.

A drawdown refers to how much an investment or trading account is down from the peak before it recovers back to the peak

Max Time to Recover → Returns the maximum time to recover from a drawdown

Clicking on this button, from your backtesting results page, would fetch the entire execution summary – basically a trade book of sorts with all the details of that each respective trade that has been executed over the entire backtesting tenure.

To put it simply, Option Greeks are mathematical computations that can give important indications that can be used to gauge different factors that affect the price of an options contract.

An Options chain or an Options Matrix is a tabular collection of all available options contracts of a given underlying. Both Put and Call options of different Strike Prices are showcased along with information about parameters such as: contract expiry, options premium, volume, open interest etc. One At the money (ATM) strike contract is highlighted by default and appears at the centre of the table while all OTM & ITM strikes are separately marked in 2 different colors.

It is a contract-wise expected payout of the derivatives contracts that you’re dealing in, based on your entry price for the respective contracts.The P&L table, just like the payoff graph is interactive and gets updated if you modify the target spot, target date or the Implied Volatility of your desired derivatives contract. The modification happens based on the probabilistic price of the derivatives contract based on changed inputs and calculated how much profit/loss your strategy would generate in that scenario.

The basic payoff graphs depict what option will be worth at the expiration date only. However, you will often see another line inside payoff charts that is usually smooth and referred to as the  Theoretical P&L. This theoretical line graphs what the option is worth at a custom target date (Which could be any date before expiry) and is calculated from a theoretical pricing model, such as  Black and Scholes  or Binomial Model. Given the time to expiration, the graph will show how your P&L will change “today” should you have this position vs the axis graphed; usually the underlying price.

The basic payoff graphs depict what option will be worth at the expiration date only. However, you will often see another line inside payoff charts that is usually smooth and referred to as the  Theoretical P&L. As can be seen by the Blue Line on uTrade’s Payoff Curve.

This theoretical line graphs what the option is worth at a custom target date (Which could be any date before expiry) and is calculated from a theoretical pricing model, such as  Black and Scholes  or Binomial Model. Given the time to expiration, the graph will show how your P&L will change “today” should you have this position vs the axis graphed; usually the underlying price.

The term "Theta decay" refers to the gradual erosion of the time value of an options contract as it approaches its expiration date. It measures how much the option's value decreases as time passes, assuming all other factors remain constant.

The price of options, also known as the option premium, is influenced by several key factors. Here are the main factors:

• Underlying Asset Price
• Strike Price
• Time to Expiration
• Volatility
• Interest Rates
• Dividends

In-the-Money (ITM): If the market price of the underlying asset is:

• lower than the strike price, the put option is in-the-money.
• Higher than the strike price, the call option is in-the-money.

In-the-Money signifies that the intrinsic value of the options contract is positive, that is if the contract is exercised right now, it will yield a positive payout barring the options premium.

At-the-Money (ATM): When the market price of the underlying asset is approximately equal to the strike price.

Out-of-the-Money (OTM): If the market price of the underlying is:

• Higher than the strike price, the put option is out-of-money.
• Lower than the strike price, the call option is out-of-money.

Out-the-Money signifies that the intrinsic value of the options contract is negative, that is if the contract is exercised right now, it will yield a negative payout.

Net Options Premium refers to the total amount of premium received or paid for a combination of options positions. It represents the overall monetary value of options premiums associated with multiple options contracts in each strategy or portfolio.

• Multiply Premium by Contract Quantity

For example, let us say you sold two call options with a premium of Rs.3 each, sold one put option with a premium of Rs.2, and bought three put options with a premium of Rs.1 each. The calculation of the net options premium would be:

(2 * 3) + (-2) + (3 * -1) = 6 - 2 - 3 = 1

In this case, the net options premium would be Rs.1, indicating that the overall premium received for the combination of options positions is Rs.1.

Strike Price: The strike price is the predetermined price at which the underlying asset can be bought or sold. The relationship between the strike price and the current market price of the underlying asset influences the option premium. In general, as the strike price gets closer to the current market price (for call options) or moves further away (for put options), the option premium tends to increase.

The term "Expiry Date" refers to the date on which an options contract becomes invalid or expires. It is the last day on which the option holder can exercise their right to buy or sell the underlying asset at the specified strike price. After the expiry date, the option ceases to exist, and its terms no longer apply.

Latency is how much time you are losing out when you are sending out an order. Basically, it is the time taken by the order to reach the trading destination or exchange,  how much time it is taking to process market data, order routing and much more.

Break Even point is that price point of the underlying at which your strategy would yield a scenario of no profit no loss - hence breakeven. Good thing that uTrade Algos comes equipped with a powerful payoff graph which gives you vital information such as the breakeven point (s), Maximum P&L, margin required and much more !

Mark-to-market (MTM) is an accounting process used to calculate the value of an asset or position based on its current market price. It is commonly used in trading and investing to determine the unrealized gains or losses on open positions. This process helps traders and investors understand their current profitability or potential risks associated with open positions.

The calculation of MTM involves the following steps:

Initial Position: When you open a position, its value is initially recorded based on the purchase price or the prevailing market price at the time of entry.

Market Price Update: As the market price of the asset or position changes, the MTM calculation reflects the updated value. This is typically done daily or as frequently as required.

Unrealized Gain or Loss: The difference between the initial value and the updated market value represents the unrealized gain or loss on the position. If the market value is higher than the initial value, it indicates an unrealized gain, while a lower market value indicates an unrealized loss.

Margin Adjustments: The MTM calculation also affects margin requirements. If there is a significant change in the market value and it impacts the margin requirement.

Account Balance Adjustments: The unrealized gains or losses from MTM are typically reflected in your trading account balance. Positive gains may increase the account balance, while losses may decrease it.

It's important to note that MTM reflects unrealized gains or losses, meaning they are not realized until the position is closed. Once the position is closed, the final realized gain or loss is determined.

For predefined strategies, called uTrade Originals - margin is mentioned on the strategy card.

Strategies created through advance order form- have a button of margin calculator. So you can directly check through that.

If you are unable to meet the margin requirements while algo trading, it can have several consequences:

Margin Calls: When your account falls below the required margin level, Share India issues a margin call. A margin call typically requires you to deposit additional funds into your trading account to restore it to the required margin level. Failure to meet the margin call may result in further actions.

Liquidation of Positions: If you fail to meet the margin call, Share India  has the right to liquidate your positions to cover the margin shortfall. This means your open positions can be forcibly closed, potentially resulting in losses.

Account Suspension: In some cases, if you consistently fail to meet margin requirements, Share India has all the rights to suspend or restrict your trading account. This is done to manage the risks associated with insufficient funds and protect both you and the broker.

Legal Consequences: Failure to meet margin obligations can lead to legal implications, depending on the jurisdiction and the terms and conditions agreed upon.

To avoid these situations, it's crucial to closely monitor your account balance, margin requirements, and available funds. Proper risk management, maintaining adequate capital, and having a solid trading strategy can help you meet your margin obligations and mitigate potential financial risks while algo trading. If you anticipate difficulty in meeting margin requirements.

The margins may be paid either in the form of Cash (or cash equivalent) or Non-cash Securities:

Cash or Cash Equivalent

•         SEBI allows investors to deposit margins in the form of Cash (by transferring money from investors’ bank account to Share India’s bank account) or Cash Equivalents (that includes such Sovereign Gold Bonds, Govt. Securities, Treasury Bills and Liquid Mutual Funds etc. which have been approved for the purpose by the Clearing Corporation).
•         A complete list of all the securities that are presently counted as Cash Equivalents is given in the enclosed file.
•         In order to receive margin benefit against cash equivalent securities purchased by the clients, clients shall be required to pledge such securities in Share India’s favor by following pledge/re-pledge mechanism. (Note: appropriate training may also be provided w.r.t. pledge/re-pledge mechanism, if required);
•         The margin benefit against such securities is passed on to the client after deduction of applicable haircut which is generally 10% in case of cash equivalent securities (e.g. against a cash securities’ value of say Rs. 1000/-, margin benefit of Rs. 900/- shall be passed on to the client, after completion of pledge process by the client);
•         Share India may help clients in buying Treasury Bills (T-bills). The detailed process for the same along with applicable terms and conditions are available at the link: ……………………
•         Share India may also help clients w.r.t. creation of FDRs against clients’ credit balance available with Share India, the interest for which shall be passed onto the clients after deduction of applicable TDS.  The detailed process for the same along with applicable terms and conditions are available at the link: …………………… (Note: In case of FDRs, the clients shall be allowed to use the entire amount of his/her FDR/s for margin purposes);

Non-cash Securities

• Besides Cash Equivalent Securities, the clients are permitted to also deposit approved non-cash securities purchased or owned by them towards their applicable margin requirements (Non-cash securities includes such Equity Shares, Bonds and Non-liquid Mutual Fund Units etc. which have been approved for the purpose by the Clearing Corporation);
•         A complete list of all the securities that are presently counted as approved non-cash securities is given in the enclosed file;
•         In order to receive margin benefit against cash equivalent securities purchased by the clients, clients shall be required to pledge such securities in Share India’s favor by following pledge/re-pledge mechanism;
•         The margin benefit against such securities is passed on to the client after deduction of applicable haircut as is mentioned against each security

You can submit a pledge request form. This form typically includes details such as the specific securities you wish to pledge, quantity, ISIN code, and any other necessary information. After receiving your pledge request, Share India  will create a pledge on your behalf. This process involves freezing the pledged securities in your demat account, preventing their transfer or sale until the pledge is released.

Once the pledge is created, you can utilize the pledged securities' value for meeting your margin requirements. The value of the securities is considered as collateral, which helps cover your margin obligations.

No, you can only pledge 90% of all the securities held in your demat account.

Very Important: 50:50 rule

As per regulatory directives, the margin benefit available against non-cash securities cannot exceed total margin benefit available against Cash and Cash Equivalents.

Examples:

 A. Total Cash and Cash Equivalents Rs. 100/- Total haircut value of non-cash securities Rs. 80/- Total margin available to client for trading purposes Rs. 180/- (Rs. 100/- + 80/-) (In this case, client is eligible to receive full margin benefit of non- cash securities as higher margin benefit against cash and cash equivalents is available to him) B. Total Cash and Cash Equivalents Rs. 100/- Total haircut value of non-cash securities Rs. 150/- Total margin available to client for trading purposes Rs. 200/- (Rs. 100/- + 100/-) (In this case, client shall be eligible to receive margin benefit of Rs. 100/- only against non- cash securities as the margin benefit available to him against cash and cash equivalents is Rs. 100/- only) C. Total Cash and Cash Equivalents Rs. 0/- Total haircut value of non-cash securities Rs. 200/- Total margin available to client for trading purposes Rs. 0/- (In this case, client shall not be eligible to receive any  margin benefit against non-cash securities as the margin benefit available to him against cash and cash equivalents is Nil)

Share India allows only 90% of your deposits towards margin obligation because; Share India aims to mitigate the risk of potential losses. Also, we require a certain buffer or cushion to maintain the margin level above the minimum required level. By limiting the utilization to 90% of deposits, we ensure that if market conditions change or the value of your positions fluctuates, the margin requirement can still be met without an immediate margin call.

Also, it is important to know that Regulatory bodies such as the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) set guidelines and regulations for margin trading, including limitations on the utilization of deposits. Share India, as a brokerage firm, needs to adhere to these regulations to maintain compliance and protect the interests of both traders and the overall market.

Option strategies are the simultaneous, buying or selling of one or more options/ futures contracts that differ in one or more of the variables such as: strike price, expiry, option types etc., to hedge a position, benefit from arbitrage, or to profit from a spread widening or tightening.

Up to 5 legs can be added in a single strategy.

Each Portfolio can consist of upto 5 strategies. Each strategy in turn can hold upto 6 order legs. To know more, kindly check out –

No, portfolios are best segregated basis underlying of strategies clubbed in the porfolio. Thus each Portfolio has only one underlying although to add strategies with different underlying, you can always add another portfolio!

Traders can create and bundle-up different strategies in one portfolio. Under My Portfolio section – all the different portfolios created by the trader are listed on this page along with snapshots of their performance.My Portfolio page will appear when clicked on My Portfolio through the header tabs. The purpose is to list down all the Created, Subscribed, Deployed, and Bookmarked portfolios in one place for tracking and accessing.

A paused strategy appears under ” My strategies ” tab and while all its conditions and other information stays intact, the strategy will not be considered for deployment on its own by our strategy engine irrespective of whether the conditions are met or not. The user may re-deploy it by clicking the deploy button after which the strategy will be running and function as an active strategy.

A leg can be understood as one step of a strategy (which is a combination of multiple steps). Traders often use multi leg strategies in derivatives contracts when a complex strategy can be deployed to reap benefits despite less confidence in Trend Directions One important thing to keep in mind while implementing Multi leg strategies is the robustness of the Trading Engine and reliability of price execution. Lucky for uTrade Algos users that they can leave the execution part on our Advanced trading engine and focus their energy on creating a market-winning strategy for themselves!

Users get risk management Parameters such as: Target Profit, Stop Loss, Trail SL, and execution time for the portfolio to keep running.Upon successful meeting of any of the user-defined conditions the strategy is exited.

This option redirects to the Pay-Off curve page where the user can change pay-off for the whole portfolio. For more details on Payoff Curve please check out

Tags are alphanumeric values for the portfolio that can be used to search and categorize a Portfolio. Some examples are:

• Positional
• Directional
• Positive Theta
• Negative Theta
• Reversal

While you can create any number of strategies, deploying a strategy means running it i.e., if and when the entry exit parameters satisfy – the legs would be executed in the live market.

If the conditions for any of the legs of a strategy have not been met, its order status shall show pending and won’t get executed until conditions meet. By default the nature of all the order legs is Intraday so all open positions would get squared off automatically before the end of the trading day.

With uTrade Algos’ Advanced Strategy form supporting up to 6 legs under each strategy, you can create almost all Derivatives strategies that there are!

Some Popular options strategies you can create are:

Long/short Butterfly
Iron Condor

With custom modifications available the scope to create newer and newer strategies to beat the market is virtually limitless!
So keep experimenting, but remember: Create a Strategy Logic – Backtest – Forward Trade – Setup Risk Management – Deploy on Live Market – Continually Improve the strategies by analyzing the results generated at each step.

The expiry type option – helps you in selecting which expiry you want for the derivatives contract. The dropdown has 3 options – Weekly, Monthly and Basic
‘Monthly’ Expiry type →  This Selects month starting from the current month and onwards
‘Weekly’ Expiry type -> This selects the weekly expiry from the current week and onwards
‘Basic’ -> using this you get a dropdown with all the available expiries for the selected cotract

A thing to note here is the expiry type and the expiry offset option (which basically defines the deviation from the current default value) work in sync with each other. Let’s say you select the ‘Monthly’ Expiry type → the expiry offset option would have the following options – (a.) Current month expiry (b.) Next months’s expiry, or (c.) Far month’s expiry
Similarly for ‘Weekly’ Exxpiry type, the offset values would be → Current, Next, Far, far +1, far + 2.

In this option, the user can select the strike prices as per the below options:

Strike/Price Selection Field

Where,

Strike – ATM: Provides an option to select the strike based on ATM and ATM +/- offset number. Based on the selection here, the strike options available in legs will be ATM + N where N is the ticker difference.

Example w.r.t NIFTY: (the ticket here being 50 points and ‘ATM’ being the strike closest to the current spot price in the market.

Strike – Basic:Provides options to select the strike from the list of all the Strike Prices available as per Option Chain.

Price:Input for premium price which further derives the strike price for the contract.

The multiplier feature is used to determine the Position Size. For example, if your strategy underlying is BANK NIFTY  where the lot size is 40 units, selecting Multiplier as ‘2’  would mean each position would be for 2 lots of the underlying i.e. 2 x 40 = 80 units of NIFTY BANK in this case.
By default, the Multiplier value is 1 and could be set by the user to a higher value for each leg – as per their need.

Stop loss is an advanced order feature wherein one can set a limit on the loss they can bear. When the trade starts moving against you, you can set a limit to the adverse movement you can bear for this trade and if the limit is breach, you exit the trade thereby limiting your losses. It?s an effective and often essential measure of Risk Management.

Break Even point is that price point of the underlying at which your strategy would yield a scenario of no profit no loss – hence breakeven. Good thing that uTrade Algos comes equipped with a powerful payoff graph which gives you vital information such as the breakeven point (s), Maximum P&L, margin required and what not!

While each strategy has separate entry and exit parameters, and once a condition is satisfied, the position will be taken based on your settings in the price execution section, but it’s still prudent to add another layer to manage your risk by setting clear Target and Stoploss as you do in Normal Trading.

Algo trading, short for algorithmic trading, is a method of executing financial transactions in the capital comprising computer algorithms. It involves the use of pre-programmed instructions to automatically place trades on behalf of investors or traders. These algorithms are designed to analyze market data, identify trading opportunities, and execute trades with speed and efficiency.

Algo trading relies on computer programs that are written to follow specific trading strategies or rules. When the conditions specified by the algorithm are met, such as a certain price level or a particular market pattern, the algorithm automatically executes trades in real-time without human intervention.

While algo trading offers many benefits, it also presents some risks and challenges, including:

• Technical Failures
• Over-optimization
• Market Risks: Algorithms are subject to market risks and can incur losses if market conditions change rapidly or unexpectedly.
• Regulatory Risks: Algo trading is subject to regulations and compliance requirements that traders need to be aware of and adhere to.

• Lack of Human Judgment: Algorithms lack human judgment and may not account for certain qualitative factors or unexpected events that can impact markets.

It's important for traders to understand these risks and implement risk management strategies when engaging in algo trading.

Algorithmic Trading can be risky, just like any other form of trading. Poorly designed algorithms or improper risk management can lead to significant losses. Proper risk assessment, backtesting, and continuous monitoring are essential to manage risks effectively.

Yes, algo trading is completely legal in India, and it does not matter whether you are a retail investor or an institution. uTrade Algos is an empanelled vendor with NSE, following all the regulations and mandates by regulatory bodies. Additionally, all premade strategies are first appoved by the exchange before getting listed on the platform thus ensuring protection of the interests of the investors.

While having programming skills can be beneficial, you don't necessarily need to be an expert programmer to use Algo Trading. Many platforms and libraries offer user-friendly interfaces and visual tools that allow traders to create algorithms without extensive coding knowledge. However, learning programming basics can provide more flexibility and customization options.

Squaring off is a trading style that day trade investors use to make profit from the market volatility. The trader buys a number of stocks of one company and sells them off on the same day at a higher price usually, which gives the trader an amount of profit.

The capital required for Algo Trading can vary depending on your trading strategy and the assets you choose to trade. While it's possible to start with a smaller amount, having sufficient capital is important to cover transaction costs and potential fluctuations while trading in the FnO market.

No, uTrade Algos has something for all levels of traders from beginners to the pros. While the simplistic form is self explanatory using which any strategy can be automated, for complete beginners subscribing to a prebuilt algo by Industry experts - uTrade Originals might be prudent*. However, understanding basic trading concepts and gaining familiarity with market dynamics is essential to create effective algorithms and manage your strategy’s risk properly.

No. NeitherAlgorithmic Trading in general or uTrade Algos in any way guarantee/suggest consistent profits or sureshot returns. Trading, irrespective of the technology involved, has risk involved and is influenced by factors like market conditions, strategy design, risk management, data quality, and market dynamics.

Traders must rely on technology to trade. There can be a risk of failure of the system or a weak internet connection. Thus keeping a broad track of execution status here and there, tracking your strategy’s performance initially before going big, understanding uTrade Originals strategies (prebuilt algos by experts) and in which market scenario it works well could be some steps you can take to ensure better experience with uTrade Algos.

In financial markets, the term "Future" refers to a type of derivative contract that obligates the parties involved to buy or sell an underlying asset at a predetermined price and date in the future.

It is not absolutely true to say that High-Frequency Trading (HFT) generally beats manual day traders, it all depends on what kind of day traders we are talking about here. If you are talking about day traders who are taking advantage of arbitrage opportunities or market inefficiencies, then yes, machines can do such things much faster. A machine can send thousands of orders in a second so there is no match here.

Definitely! In fact, this is one of the benefits of automating your strategy. Algos are void of emotions which works very well especially in the financial markets, thus relying on an Algo engine does not only ensure better execution but also makes you a disciplined trader.

Express speed - Algos have the ability to fire orders at 1/1000th of a second, way beyond the scope of manual trading.
Automate execution - Instead of monitoring your trades manually, feed parameters into the order form and let our powerful algo engine take care of the rest.
Become Disciplined and eliminate the emotional bias - Algos are void of emotions which works very well especially in the financial markets

Statistically, Calmar Ratio =  Net P&L/Max Drawdown

The higher the Calmar ratio the better with anything over 0.50 is considered to be good. A Calmar ratio of 3.0 to 5.0 is really good.
