Trade Rationale

Mar 2020: RUT $1000- $1005 Bull Call Spread. With the ongoing Coronavirus scare, all stocks and indexes have been dropping like a rock. With some of our indicators indicating that this might be the end of this monstrous pullback, I am testing the waters with a $1000 - $1005 Bull Call Spread. We are risking $245 to make $255 on this trade. Notice, that I usually trade 30 day expiration cycles, but due to the unprecedented times we are going through in the financial markets, I am giving it a larger time frame to work out in my favor

Trade Selection Criteria

RSI Analysis

RSI has been in oversold zone for some time. However, it is not showing any signs of a clear reversal yet
