Microsoft's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Microsoft is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $37.50 short put and a strike $32.50 long put offers a potential 7.99% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $37.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.37 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.63 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $32.50 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Microsoft is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Microsoft is bearish.
The RSI indicator is below 20 which suggests that the stock is in oversold territory.
