Caterpillar’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Caterpillar is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $150.00 short call and a strike $160.00 long call offers a potential 166.67% return on risk over the next 9 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $150.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $6.25 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.75 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $160.00 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Caterpillar is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Caterpillar is bearish.
The RSI indicator is at 38.45 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
