(Credit Spread) Glimpse Trade: 12/16/13: AMZN

AMZN: Credit Spread

This is a simple credit spread using PUTS on Amazon.com.

By using Puts that means the trade is bullish to neutral. What I want is for the stock to stay above the short strike. As long as it does that the trade will make money.

If you look at a chart of Amazon you will see that it is trading right now at 387 and my short strike is at 355 which is 32 points away or about 8%. Will AMZN drop 8% in 32 days? Probably not.

Sell to Open Jan 355 Puts

Buy to Open Jan 350 Puts for a credit of  .60

That means a potential profit of $60 per spread. Max risk/loss is $440 per spread and so the Potential ROI is 13.6%

What is Glimpse of Genius?

Simple. I want to expose more people to option selling and options trading. If you get a Glimpse of Genius and like what you see, then I suspect that you will sign up for Option Genius membership to get even more trades. We do 3-5 trades a month as part of Option Genius.
