Nov 2019: AAPL $260- $250 Bear Put Spread



Trade Structure

$260- $250 Bear Put Spread

Trade Date


Expiration Days


Trade Rationale

On Nov 6th, we put on an AAPL $257-$247 Bear Put Spread because all our indicators were pointing to an imminent market pullback. But after the "China Deal", the market kept roaring higher and higher. Since, our directional bias and analysis hasn't changed, I used this opportunity to put on a new $260-$250 Bear Put Spread for a debit of $312. If AAPL expires below or at $250 in 27 days, we will double our money. PS: Please reference the previous AAPL trade which we placed on Nov 6th:

Trade Selection Criteria

Overall market movement

With S&P 500 making new all time highs, the overall market and practically every stock in my watchlist is making new highs. With the first signs of a loss in upward momentum, it is a great time to put on some mean reversion trades

No Earnings or Significant News

Earnings are behind us and were announced on 10/30. There is no significant news or earnings event during our trade cycle.

Bollinger Bands outside Keltner Channels

Bollinger Bands are outside Keltner Channels. We are not in a squeeze or low volatility period.

RSI has flattened out and is in the overbought zone. But not showing any clear signs of a pullback or trend reversal.
