Winner: 61.82% Gain On AMAT Call Options

|About: Applied Materials, Inc. (AMAT)

We just sold our AMAT 17AUG18 44 Call Options (AMAT) at $4.45 for a gain of 61.82% on the trade.

We went LONG on July 11.

My daily momentum indicator turned bearish today, which tells me that the shares will now most probably move down or sideways. The shares failed to hold yesterday's gap up, which most likely signals a pause in the upward momentum for now.
