Trade Alert:

Buy 3 September 920-940 vertical call spreads, paying 2 cents each for a total price of 6 cents.

Liquidation Instructions:

Sell 1 September 920-940 vertical call spread at 6 cents GTC, letting the other two ride.

Logic Behind the Trade

We like buying this spread at 10% of its max value. September options still have a lot of time, 92 days until expiration, We need approximately 40 in price to liquidate 1/3 of the trade and cover the cost of the whole package and let the rest ride if the situation still looks bullish. This is alow cost,high risk/reward situation. Many of our other strategies will be centered around chopping within a range, this is a good hedge for a breakout to the upside outside of the range.

What is Ag Alerts?

1-This is a limited risk option strategy that focuses on the agricultural markets

2-There are roughly 3-4 new limited risk trade alerts each month

3-You can place the trades on your own or have our team place them as soon as the alerts are issued!
