Watch my YouTube video:  How to use options to simulate a long stock position (Synthetic Long Stock).


buy (to open) 1 January 2015 $184 call option at $9.07
sell (to open) 1 January 2015 $184 put option at $10.36

I received $129.

Reasons for placing this trade:  SPY had been "oversold."
This is a "double bullish" trade.  Both options are at-the-money.


sell (to close) the call option at $10.65
buy (to close) the put option at $8.64

I received another $201.

NET PROFIT:  $312.82 (in 2 weeks)
