Introducing NIFTY Rider, a trading model that aims to protect your portfolio's downside while adding 2x alpha on the upside. This model is designed to preserve wealth in the event of a market crash, covering up to 60% of the fall.
In this post, we'll delve into the key features and benefits of Nifty Rider, providing insights on how it can complement your existing strategies.
What is NIFTY Rider?
NIFTY Rider is a positional, high-volatility trading model that utilises a combination of trend following and long-short strategies. It uses moving averages as a trend identifier and price range references for trend confirmation and entries, with exits based on a trailing moving average. All of these parameters are used on an hourly time frame.
How does it work?
This model is divided into two parts: an active part and a passive part. The passive part stays invested in an index ETF, while the active part is traded through futures. The active part goes both long and short based on signals from the model. This strategy is designed to capture trends in the NIFTY 50 index and protect the portfolio in the event of a market crash by going short in the futures component.
Is NIFTY Rider suitable for me?
NIFTY Rider is suitable for investors who have an equity portfolio worth greater than ₹10 lakhs, and would like to hedge it on the downside while making money on the upside. This model is also suitable for investors who are active in the markets daily.
Note: The model is based on a combination of long-short and trend following strategy, which is intended to preserve wealth on the downside and add alpha on the upside but also trade on reduced leverage. However, the performance of the model is subject to the performance of the NIFTY 50 index and any changes in the economic or political environment may negatively impact the performance of the index.
As with any investment strategy, it is important to conduct thorough research, consult a financial advisor and fully understand the risks before committing to the strategy.
