IBM's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on IBM is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $152.50 short put and a strike $147.00 long put offers a potential 24.43% return on risk over the next 7 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $152.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.08 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.42 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $147.00 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for IBM 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 up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for IBM is bullish.
The RSI indicator is at 67.72 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
