Akamai (AKAM) Offering Possible 11.11% Return Over the Next 8 Calendar Days

Akamai's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Akamai is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $60.50 short call and a strike $65.50 long call offers a potential 11.11% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $60.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.50 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.50 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $65.50 long call strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Akamai 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 Akamai is bearish.

The RSI indicator is at 36.74 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
