Keene: Trade Of The Day – Selling the SINA November 11th Weekly 85-87.5 Strangle & Buying 80-92.5 Strangle by | This entry was posted on Tuesday, November 8th, 2011 and filed under Stock Market   Comments Off

Breakdown: I sold SINA November 11th (weekly) 85-87.5 Strangle and Bought 80-92.5 Strangle for $3.65 total.

Profitable – I make money on this trade if SINA closes between $81.35 and $91.15 by November 11, 2011.

Break-even – I breakeven on this trade if SINA closes at $81.35 or $91.15 by November 11, 2011.

Unprofitable – If SINA closes below $81.35 or above $91.15 this trade will be unprofitable, but the most I can lose is: $5 spread value minus the $3.65 I sold the spread for, or a total of $1.35.

The reason I like this trade: I watched BIDU move on earnings, but less than the expected move. SINA’s ATM weekly straddle is priced at $9 and I am fading the movement. I am defining my risk vs reward and I am risking $1.35, but I can make $3.65. This spread most likely will not be worth zero, but it is 3-1 payout; hence, I think it is a great way to play high flying stocks on earnings. Since SINA has been trading in the middle of the $70-$95 range for the past month, I believe it will continue to stay within this same range. Questions regarding this trade can be directed to me at
