NIFTY fell 380 points overnight... yet positional put option buyers hardly made money

- despite a 380 point fall in the nifty, put prices did not appreciate
- was this because of theta? there was no change in VIX
- note I am writing about weekly expiry options

- someone who bought 8700 PE on Friday close has earned 77 points after a 380 point fall
- and a 8300 PE has actually lost money

- let us see what happens tomorrow

Summary: do not trade options unless you know the greeks
