IBM's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on IBM is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $180.00 short call and a strike $190.00 long call offers a potential 7.76% return on risk over the next 17 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $180.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.72 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $9.28 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $190.00 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for IBM 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 IBM is bullish.
The RSI indicator is below 20 which suggests that the stock is in oversold territory.
