IBM (IBM) Offering Possible 7.99% Return Over the Next 8 Calendar Days

IBM's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on IBM is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $145.00 short call and a strike $150.00 long call offers a potential 7.99% 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 $145.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.37 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.63 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $150.00 long call 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 down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for IBM is bearish.

The RSI indicator is at 29.25 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.
