American Express (AXP) Offering Possible 39.66% Return Over the Next 13 Calendar Days

American Express's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on American Express is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $95.00 short put and a strike $90.00 long put offers a potential 39.66% return on risk over the next 13 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $95.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.42 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.58 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $90.00 long put strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for American Express is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for American Express is bullish.

The RSI indicator is at 52.32 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Analyzing American Express's Unusual Options Activity
Thu, 06 Aug 2020 18:29:44 +0000
On Thursday, shares of American Express (NYSE: AXP) saw unusual options activity. After the option alert, the stock price moved down to $95.09. * Sentiment: BULLISH * Option Type: SWEEP * Trade Type: CALL * Expiration Date: 2020-08-07 * Strike Price: $94.00 * Volume: 741 * Open Interest: 3233 Signs of Unusual Options Activity One way options activity can be considered unusual is when volume is exceptionally high. The volume of options activity refers to the number of shares contracts traded for a day. Unsettled contracts that have been traded, but not yet closed, are called open interest. These contracts are not closed because a buyer has not purchased a contract, or a seller has not sold it.A contract with an expiration date in the distant future is another tell of unusual activity. Generally, additional time until a contract expires increases the potential for it to reach its strike price and grow its time value. Time value is important in this context because it represents the difference between the strike price and the value of the underlying asset.Contracts with a strike price far from the underlying price are also considered unusual because they are defined as being "out of the money". This occurs when the underlying price is under the strike price on a call option, or above the strike price on a put option. These trades are made because the underlying asset value is expected to change dramatically in the future, and the buyer or seller can take advantage of a greater profit margin.Understanding Sentiment Options are "bullish" when a call is purchased at/near ask price or a put is sold at/near bid price. Options are "bearish" when a call is sold at/near bid price or a put is bought at/near ask price.These observations are made without knowing the investor's true intent by purchasing these options contracts. The activity is suggestive of these strategies, but an observer cannot be sure if a bettor is playing the contract outright or if the options bettor is hedging a large underlying position in common stock. For the latter case, bullish options activity may be less meaningful than the exposure a large investor has on their short position in common stock.Using These Strategies to Trade Options Unusual options activity is an advantageous strategy that may greatly reward an investor if they are highly skilled, but for the less experienced trader, it should remain as another tool to make an educated investment decision while taking other observations into account.For more information to understand options alerts, visit https://pro.benzinga.help/en/articles/1769505-how-do-i-understand-options-alertsSee more from Benzinga * Looking Into American Express's Return On Capital Employed * Price Over Earnings Overview: American Express * Recap: American Express Q2 Earnings(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
