Costco (COST) Offering Possible 8.7% Return Over the Next 6 Calendar Days

This article was originally published on this site

Costco’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Costco is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $160.00 short call and a strike $165.00 long call offers a potential 8.7% return on risk over the next 6 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $160.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.40 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.60 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $165.00 long call strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Costco 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 Costco is bearish.

The RSI indicator is at 65.3 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
