    You are once again bang on target Bramesh. I just remember my early days of trading in 2010 when every month I used to buy out of the money calls and puts and everytime selling on last day at 0.05 paise in order to avoid exchange penalty. I thank Zukerberg that I met you and almost everything in trading is on right track now.
