ConocoPhillips (COP) Offering Possible 9.89% Return Over the Next 6 Calendar Days

ConocoPhillips’s most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on ConocoPhillips is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $72.50 short call and a strike $77.50 long call offers a potential 9.89% return on risk over the next 6 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $72.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.45 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.55 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $77.50 long call strike price.

Venezuela dodges oil asset seizures with export transfers at sea

Venezuela has been pumping oil this year at the lowest rate in three decades after years of underinvestment and a mass exodus of workers.
