Target's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Target is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $106.00 short put and a strike $101.00 long put offers a potential 9.89% return on risk over the next 9 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $106.00 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 dropped below the $101.00 long put strike price.

The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Target is bullish.
