Wal-Mart (WMT) Offering Possible 6.16% Return Over the Next 3 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 $90.00 short call and a strike $95.00 long call offers a potential 6.16% return on risk over the next 3 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $90.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.29 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.71 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $95.00 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 below 20 which suggests that the stock is in oversold territory.
