ALTB – Closed CRM Earnings – Nov18/Dec23 68/79 Dual Calendar

CRM jumped a bit higher than expected but settled down after the open. We ended up hitting close to our exit targets but there was actually more room to make money in the trades.

This version of this trade had a higher return but that was mainly a factor of where the strikes were vs the price at the time of exit. Overall I am very happy with both versions of the trade.

The market is sorting itself out after the surprise election. There have been some wide swings the last few days and that isn’t likely to be over soon.

ALTB – Open FDX Earnings Trade [correction]

FDX (Fed Ex) has their earnings this evening. This is causing elevated IV in the short term options. The trade we are taking is similar to the ORCL earnings trade we took last week. We are using a short call/put on this Friday’s expiration to capture profits and a long call/put on the Oct 21 expirations to protect ourselves.
