Wal-Mart's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Wal-Mart is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $89.00 short call and a strike $94.00 long call offers a potential 10.62% return on risk over the next 6 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $89.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.48 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.52 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $94.00 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Wal-Mart 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 Wal-Mart is bearish.
The RSI indicator is below 20 which suggests that the stock is in oversold territory.
