Spiders (SPY) Put Options

6/15/2016 (12:07:04 pm, PT)  RD

For my friend ...

sold -7 July 2016  $197 puts at $1.29

Why did I place this trade?
  • stochastics in oversold region
  • FOMC announcement at 11 am (SPY rose initially, then dropped)
  • 80% probability of success

buy back all 7 puts at $0.47

NET PROFIT:  $552.64

SUCCESS!
