The Straddle/Strangle Chart Analysis feature provides traders with powerful tools for evaluating straddle/strangle strategies, offering insights into potential market movements.
a) Straddle: A trading strategy involving the purchase of both a call option and a put option with the same strike price and expiration date. It profits from significant price volatility in the underlying asset.
b) Strangle: A trading strategy involving the purchase of a call option and a put option with different strike prices but the same expiration date. It profits from substantial price movement in either direction.

1) What is the difference between a straddle and a strangle strategy?
-> A straddle involves buying both a call and a put option with the same strike price and expiry date, while a strangle involves buying a call and a put option with different strike prices but the same expiry date. Strangles have a wider price range for potential profit.
2) How does open interest (OI) data help in options trading?
-> Open interest reflects the total number of outstanding options contracts for a particular strike price and expiry. It can provide insights into market sentiment, showing whether there’s strong interest in a specific option, which may influence price movements.
