Big Play Wednesday, 6-Pack of New Ideas

Big Play Wednesday: 

Perhaps some of our newer readers thought we were exaggerating in yesterday morning’s report, when we mentioned how common it is for us sweep the board perfectly with our daily options plays.

We were on the bearish side of the fence with all of them, which were the SPY 01/25 $398-396 Puts, the BA Weekly $210-205 Puts, the MSFT Weekly $240-235 Puts, and the NEE 02/17 $80-77.50 Puts.  With the markets gapping down and sliding in the first hour, we were able to see the following ranges and total possible profits from these ideas:
