How About A New Trade

How About A New Trade

Hello Smart Option Sellers! Alcoa (AA) Let's see if we can get this thing going. We last played AA on June 15th when the stock was trading at $31 per share. We sold the $21 put options which gave us a $10 cushion, or approximately 32% of downside protection. Today, AA is trading at $45 per share, and we'll be looking at another $14 of cushion, or 31% downside room for error. I also like this trade because of AA's chart formation. It has recently popped through nine-year overhead resistance at $40 per share. Typically, when a stock breaks through long-term support or resistance, it usually keeps going in the new breakout direction (higher in this case). See the long-term chart of AA here . Although sometimes with chart formations like this, we can also see a move back to the area of the breakout, in this case that would be back to $40 before it starts to head higher again. So don't be surprised if AA moves a bit lower towards $40 before moving up again. In any case, we're going to jump into this new put-sell play on AA. Here's what you can choose to do: Sell (sell-to-open) the AA January 2018 $31 put options for a limit sell price of $.25 per contract or higher, GTC, as an opening transaction (sell-to-open). Currently, this put option has a market of $.20 bid/$.30 offer. Let's see if anyone will bite on our $.25 offer. Remember, if you don't get filled right away, just keep your order working GTC. If the stock moves lower, as I said it could, it will pop the put option prices and you'll have no problem getting filled. Bottom-line, do not sell for anything less than $.25 per contract. Let us know how you do. You can reach us here Continue to work all other trades as instructed and continue to hold all other open positions as-is.
