More Options Success & New Ideas

More Options Gainers:

We only formulated two sets of options ideas for yesterday morning’s premarket report, but we scored pretty well with both of them. Kohls was a post-earnings play, and we had been bearish on the SPY from the get-go this week.

Our exact target ranges were the KSS Weekly $60-62 Calls and the SPY 01/24 $435-432 Puts, and traders could have realized some pretty good profits off of either idea. With the markets continuing their recent downslide until midday, the SPY Puts were the most attractive option on the day.

Here are the total possible gains one could have recorded with those items of interest:

KSS Weekly $60-62 Calls
$60: 
3.46-4.90 (+42%)
$61: 2.81-4.23 (+51%)
$62: 1.00-3.73 (+273%)
