Discover's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Discover is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $69.50 short call and a strike $74.50 long call offers a potential 20.48% return on risk over the next 10 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $69.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.85 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.15 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $74.50 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Discover 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 down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Discover is bearish.
The RSI indicator is at 35.62 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

The Federal Reserve said on Wednesday it wants to ease regulations for U.S. lenders with less than $700 billion in assets, a way to lessen the burden on big commercial lenders that do not have volatile Wall Street businesses. Under the Fed proposal, midsized lenders including U.S. Bancorp (USB.N), Capital One Financial Corp (COF.N), PNC Financial Corp (PNC.N) and Charles Schwab Corp (SCHW.N) would face lower liquidity and compliance requirements, and smaller banks would get even easier treatment. The proposal stems from a law Congress passed in May that ordered the Fed to reduce regulatory burdens on community and regional lenders.
