Trade Rationale

REGN has been stuck in a downward channel for some time and I have been waiting for while to put on a trade on this. The problem is when do you know the downward momentum has lost steam. In this case, I had to rely on RSI dropping below 30 indicating REGN was in oversold territory. And then RSI popping out of it which usually indicates a trend reversal. In addition DI- is now flattening out, providing more support to my directional bias.

Trade Selection Criteria

Overall market movement

N/A this is a post earnings trade. The individual stock’s price action is more important for these trades.

No Earnings or Significant News

This is a post earnings trade. Earnings were announced a few days ago.

Bollinger Bands outside Keltner Channels

Bollinger bands are clearly outside the Keltner Channels.

RSI Analysis

Although, this is a post earnings trade, RSI is now beginning to show some signs of a recovery

ADX Analysis

DI- is flattening out, giving us further conviction about this trade.

Trade Analysis

Although, REGN mostly traded sideways during our trade window, we still ended up making our full 94% profit target on this trade. Another reason why I like spreads so much. If you had bought plain Calls here, you would have lost all your money due to Time Decay.
