New Weekly NP Trade – MSFT

Posted by mounddweller on August 19, 2011

Fellow Traders,

Today I placed another weekly trade.  I STO 5 AUG26 MSFT $23 puts at $0.24.  My ROIC (net of commissions) is 0.948% which equates to 49.45% annually.  MSFT was trading at $24.09 when my trade executed.

I like MSFT at $23.  It has support at this price.  However, given the current market volatility no support level should be considered rock solid.

    Hi Troy,

    MSFT is going to be quite volatile along with many others and should make for some good NP writing. Am currently short a few Oct 20 puts and just had my Aug 26 calls and 23 puts expire. Will be looking to put on a few of the weekly puts in MSFT to try and generate some income also.

    Good trading
