Looking to the SPY Amid Earnings Drought


Leaning on the SPY:

We started off the fresh trading week yesterday on fairly decent footing. We formulated a batch of three options ideas in yesterday morning’s premarket report, a couple of quick-strike plays and a longer-term idea. Both of the near-term targets looked pretty good for us on the day.

Those plays were the SPY 09/19 $385-383 Puts and the TTWO Weekly $119-121 Calls , with the latter producing larger gain opportunities by a fairly large margin as you can see here. We’re going to stick with the strategy of going bearish on the SPY once again today with a fresh target range that you can find below. We may find ourselves looking to the SPY more and more as the present earnings dry period persists.

$385: .70-2.00 (+186%)
