8.50 debit on the trade. Not sure about 1350s. I’d have to go. Back and look

re: Calling all Traders
I thought those butterfly call spreads were a strategy used when you expect the stock to stay in narrow trading range near the price of the calls you write. All of those call prices are out of the money.

Am I wrong?

You have zero profit on that spread until the stock reaches 1300 right?

Am I missing something?

re: Calling all Traders
Right but your maximum profit is at 1349 and goes down if the stock goes over that right?

So you are paying $8 bucks for potentially $41 in profit and the stock has to move up $43 just to break even. Right?

Give me a minute. I’ll try to lay it out for you

Sorry man I don’t feel like putting a paragraph on here but I’m basically bullish on the stock. Maybe I’ll feel more explanatory tomorrow. Delta is 50% on trade

Looks like OptionsProfitCalculator.com. Very simple and easy to use for quick screens when you don't want to manually do the math.

re: Calling all Traders
Trying to sell some 11/8 call spreads on EA and 11/1 on SBUX today. Not as confident on EA... might need more time for reversion. Both backed up just before my price hit. :( We’ll see if there’s an IV expansion at least on EA since they announce earnings after the bell today. SBUX can wait til tomorrow if need be. Still sticking with the 20-25 delta on each.

Great thread idea. I hope that we can keep this alive.

re: Calling all Traders
$PINS and $etsy are both setting up to provide good times.

volatile. nervous buy&hold investors (overheated option prices). inside bar on month/weekly chart whith increasing ATR on small timeframes.

i'll check for opportunity right before close (of their announcements)

Yep. I’m looking at ETSY too, along with GRMN and *maybe* LYFT before earnings tomorrow. PINS on Thursday. Went with a SBUX call spread a day early. My EA didn’t hit today. :(

Will look at some strangles for the less volatile earnings announcements next week. RACE might be a possibility if IV is in the sweet spot.

re: Calling all Traders
dont forget about $fb and $aapl.


not sure if it was simply luck up trading into it($fb ranged aboout 4% past week)..
but that high volatility created a nice arbitrage situation (2 separate spreads combined...do not show where a loss is possible)

we'll see

Killer move on GRUB.

I didn’t pay enough attention to my alert calendar to see that GRMN was reporting BEFORE the open today. Moved directionally as expected. Missed EA and missed that one. F’ me! Oh well. On to SBUX, ETSY and (maybe) LYFT. I’m long AAPL stock, but yeah, it does have decent IV.
