Coming off a mixed earnings report, AMZN popped up on my “Trade Scan” as potential trade as the typical “earnings volatility crush” hadn’t hit the stock.
Being a math and probabilities guy, I liked the numbers…
- the stock was trading sideways between the 200 and 50-day moving averages
- IV rank was a robust 40%
- the 50-day sold strike had just a 23% chance of expiring in the money
- and we could collect 20% plus return on our capital
We made the trade.
Watch my latest Trade Scan video to see how we ended up with $570 of Amazon cash profits and a 23.4% return in just 28 days. Another “max profit” trade.
