The idea presented is the opinion of the Options Action staff and not a recommendation by OptionsPlay.
On Friday’s Options Action, the crew analyzed the performance of the retail sector. The retail sector has underperformed over the past 2 months and just completed a head & shoulders formation. Costco, while outperforming the retail sector, has recently bounced lower off a major resistance level. Expecting Costco to move lower, Michael Khouw suggests selling a Jan 230/240 Call Vertical for a $4.10 Credit. As of Friday’s close, these call options were trading at a $3.44 Credit.
