Options Oracle: 05/10/13

Last week we sold a credit call spread in Google, which expires next Friday. The stock has since moved higher and the spread has gone against us. This week we are initiating a repair strategy that will help us out and put us back on track for a profitable position. The divergence between the stock […]

Google has made a nice run to the upside in the past couple of weeks but it seems to have reached a point of resistance. The quick run higher has also drawn the stock a good distance away from the 20-day moving average, which is why we are selling the near term call spread. If the stock closes […]

Netflix has gapped up in a big way forming another gap target area that we can work with. We already have a condor position in this stock that will need some adjusting by the time May expiration day comes along but we are treating this as a new position. Our goal is to take in […]
