Spiders (SPY) Custom Ratio Put Spread

Tuesday, 7/5/2016 (10:12:40 am, PT)  RD For my friend ....

sell -3 August 2016  $201 puts at $2.11 (30% prob ITM)
buy +1 August 2016  $199 put at $1.77

credit received:  $4.56 x 1 x 100 = $456.00

Why did I place this trade?
  • stochastics in overbought region
  • 7/5/2016 was a "down" day
  • 45 days 'til expiration
  • high probability of success

Friday, 7/8/2016 (10:34:12 am, PT)

bought back entire spread for $2.16 (debit)

PROFIT:  $240 (in FOUR days!)


SUCCESS!
