Trade Idea Risk Reversals with Bond Overlay

kristal.ai-trade-ideas-advisory-blog

The current market environment is characterized by a higher degree of uncertainty than usual. Two main factors contributing to this:

  • Headline risk from political tension between China & US
  • Uncertainty regarding US Economic outlook

Yuan has been a driver of risk sentiment in the past, and since further hardening of fronts in trade dispute make an imminent resolution unlikely. However, the potential of renewed Fed stimulus may cause a continued rally in stocks driven by liquidity.

Rationale Behind This Trade

The recent spikes in market volatility and headline risk led to increased downside hedging. Put skew (difference of volatility between a call and a put option) has therefore increased. This presents an opportunity for Investors to switch from Equity long positions into a synthetic long through buying a call and selling a put option, picking up above-average premium.

The overall Equity Risk position is slightly reduced but gives investors some downside buffer while participating on upside moves.

In the following trade idea, we show an example of a Bond plus Index option structure versus the outright index. The solution can be customized to your needs and preferences regarding the choice of Bonds, underlying or tenor of options. It can be used either for slight risk reduction if the underlying position is sold first, or as an additional long risk but with a slight buffer to the downside.
