TheOptionPlayer.com sets up a Russell 2000 Index ETF (NYSE: IWM) short-term (38-day) option trade (based on Tuesday’s closing quoted bid/ask prices)
Investors could simultaneously:
The difference between funds received and paid out is a $.27per share credit which we keep if the Russell 2000 Index ETF closes below $155 on Friday November 17th, but immediately execute a trade adjustment if it appears the price is moving higher. If the price gaps higher at the start of trading we might revise the strike prices. See Guidelines page at www.theoptionplayer.com/ for explanation on how trade is set up.
Why we recommend it:
As confirmed in the chart below, similar to the other major equity indexes the Russell 2000 Index ETF (NYSE: IWM) is trading near all-time highs. The Russell 2000 Index is not nearly as bullish as the other major stock indices. The IWM ETF is grossly overbought and has been confined to a tight trading range the past week or so. The ETF is due for a pullback to resolve the excessively overbought condition and already momentum indicators are starting to turn down. Traders appear to have inputted promising quarterly results into stock prices and they will probably “sell the news”. It is reasonable to expect the IWM ETF to be below our short call on the November 17th option expiration date.
52-Week High: $150.68
52-Week Low: $114.88
