Wal-Mart (WMT) Offering Possible 14.42% Return Over the Next 37 Calendar Days

This article was originally published on this site

Wal-Mart’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Wal-Mart is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $92.50 short call and a strike $97.50 long call offers a potential 14.42% return on risk over the next 37 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $92.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.63 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.37 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $97.50 long call strike price.

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

The RSI indicator is at 27.83 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
