Technical’s and volatility readings warrant a SPY Put Calendar Spread - John Manley

|Includes: SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

On August 14th we initiated a Put Calendar Spread on the SPY. The rationale behind this initial move is to take advantage of lower prices over time and flat to rising implied volatility in the SPY. The current spread also gives us some profits to the upside should the market want to push that way. This spread could be considered the first move of a possible two part play – with potential add-on / adjustments either to the upside or downside – depending on future market action.  The Delta component of the options pricing model will be monitored and dynamically adjusted if necessary. The spread starts off slightly net short.
