AMZN Trade Retrospective: Collecting a $.37 Credit for the Potential to Make Another $50

AMZN Trade Retrospective: Collecting a $.37 Credit for the Potential to Make Another $50
There are different ways to trade in a choppy environment. Here’s a deep dive on how I attempted to use weekly options to trade a potential bounce in AMZN, and collected $.37 initially, for the possibility of making $50 more, even though the trade ended up being only an $.81 winner.

The Entry

Last Thursday, 9/24, when $AMZN was trading at about $3000 a share, I was looking for a cheap way to play a bounce in the stock. During that time, my bias in the markets had begun to shift to a more bullish stance after seeing how the market had difficulty grinding lower. With that in mind, I wanted to play a potential bounce in tech. But I knew I didn’t want to pay a debit at all to play for a bounce that might not even happen, given how uncertain and choppy the markets had been, but I still wanted to set myself up to capture some large gains if AMZN did indeed bounce. Therefore, the strategy that made the most sense to me, was a Call broken wing butterfly.
Given that I’m a very short-term options trader who loves trading weeklies, I was trying to look for a cheap butterfly for the upcoming week that I could put on for a net credit. After exploring the options chain, I came across the +1/-2/+1 3300/3350/3450 call broken wing butterfly for the Oct 2 series. This fly, at the time (on Sept 24), was trading for a total of $.37 credit. Meaning, by putting on that butterfly, I would get paid $.37, and the following scenarios could happen:
  1. If AMZN decided to tank or hang out sideways and never get up close enough to the butterfly to expand the spread in my favor, then I’d walk away pocketing the $.37 credit
  2. If AMZN slowly crept up to reach exactly 3350 by expiration, I’d not only get to keep the credit, but also be able to sell the butterfly back out for $50. Of course, it doesn’t need to reach exactly 3350 by expiration. If AMZN slowly worked its way up to near 3300, then the butterfly would expand very nicely as well.
  3. If AMZN blew past 3400 by expiration, I’d see a loss, up to a maximum of $50 / spread (if $AMZN moves past 3450). That’s because the 3300/3350 long call vertical of the fly provides 50 points of coverage before I essentially start losing money from the 3350/3450 short vertical, up until that 3450 kicks in to cap off further upside losses.
So that is a rough outline of the potential scenarios that would happen with this trade.
Given the choppy market conditions, I was ok with risking $50/spread (point #3), in order to not lose money if I’m wrong on direction (point #1), while at the same time, keeping myself open to the possibility of the butterfly expanding in my favor (point #2) for some potentially very large gains.
But satisfying point #3 is tricky. I needed more data points suggesting that $AMZN wouldn’t surge higher early on in the trade. Because if $AMZN did surge higher early on in the trade, then while the 3300 long call would rise in value, those two 3350 short calls would also rise in value, and because there’d still be some time value left, they could be very juiced up and eat away at the profits of that 3300 long call, so much so that the 3450 long call won’t even be able to offset those losses, especially given how far out of the money that 3450 call is.

AMZN on 9/24, daily timeframe
Looking at the chart above on 9/24, we can see that AMZN was trading at around $3000/share. In order to reach $3300 (where the first long call of the broken wing butterfly is), the stock would need to
  1. Breach the 38% fib retracement (~AMZN=3131) of the move from the 9/2 high to the 9/21 low,
  2. Breach the 20MA and 50MA
  3. Breach the 50% fib retracement (~AMZN=3211)
  4. Breach the 61.8% fib retracement (~AMZN=3292)
before finally reaching the 3300 long call. All of these levels, I felt, should provide some resistance for AMZN to have to chew thru over the following week, before it even gets to the long call. And by that time, if AMZN did reach 3300, then the 3300 long call would still have a lot of extrinsic value left (somewhere around $20 on the last day), while the 3350 short calls would be very cheap (each around $5), so the entire spread could be roughly worth $10. Which would be great, because that means I’d be getting paid $.37 to make another $10.
So with all of the above considered, I chose to take on that upside risk, for a chance to make potentially $50 (realistically I try to aim for just half of the max profit: $25, and start harvesting profits and peeling off the flies at around $5-$10), and that day on 9/24, entered the Oct2 3300/3350/3450 call broken wing butterfly for a $.37 credit.
After entry, on Friday 9/25 and Monday 9/28, AMZN made steady progress upwards, from 3000 to 3175, breaching the 31.8% retracement and tagging the 20MA and 50MA from below.

AMZN on 9/28, daily timeframe
but this move wasn’t large and fast enough to expand the value of the 3350 short calls. In fact, theta did a great job draining those short calls, while the 3300 long call did a good job retaining its premium, so the butterfly had already expanded a bit in my favor, and I was sitting at about a small $1.00 profit.

The Adjustment

However, on Tuesday and Wednesday, AMZN began to stall out. By the end of Wednesday 9/30, when it looked like AMZN was putting in a topping tail, I decided that AMZN might not be able to make it near 3300 by expiration Friday, so I wanted to take in a bit more credit while I still could, before theta drained more of that 3300 long call. At the time, the spread was trading for almost $2.
That’s when I made a slight adjustment to the spread and sold the 3300/3310 call vertical.

AMZN on 9/30, daily timeframe
This essentially rolled the 3300 long call up to 3310, and I was able to collect a small $.44 credit for it. However, this adjustment did open me up to an additional $10 of risk to the upside, because now, the long call vertical portion of the butterfly is only $40 wide (instead of $50). Still, with only 2 days left for AMZN to go higher, I felt comfortable taking on a bit more upside risk knowing that theta is going to be working hard to drain those 3350 short calls if AMZN did decide to surge higher. And at that moment, I actually wanted AMZN to move more towards my fly. My deltas were still positive, and the risk graph showed that a move towards the short strikes of the fly would expand it by another $4-5 by Thursday.
So after this adjustment, the trade stood at a $.81 credit, and the profit potential on the fly was now $40 instead of $50. Which is still pretty good.

The Tease

On Thursday, AMZN showed some strength and closed above the 50% fib (3211), which meant that if on Friday, AMZN worked its way up to around 3300, the fly could potentially be worth $5-10. Things were looking good (on any continued bullishness, the next target for AMZN was the 61.8% fib retracement at ~3300). So I left the trade alone without making any more adjustments.

AMZN on 10/1, daily timeframe

The Flop

Unfortunately, on Thursday night, news broke out that Trump was diagnosed with Coronavirus, and the market fell lower. By the open, AMZN was already trading at around 3150, roughly 150 points below the fly. The spread had instantly lost all of its value, so I basically let it expire worthless and walked away pocketing the $.81 credit.

While the trade did not work out as well as I had liked, the important thing to note is that I was able to get paid even when the trade didn’t go in my favor. With options, there are ways to trade an underlying to a certain target without ponying up a debit, albeit at the cost of introducing tail risk, while offering the possibility of very large upside. This may be a style of trading that one can consider employing when the outlook of the markets is uncertain, as long as the trader is willing to make the necessary adjustments to control risk.
Which leads me to the following section:

FAQ

What if AMZN decided to surge very early on during the trade? What if AMZN had surged to 3300 with 4-5 DTE, hence juicing up the short calls and causing the butterfly to take on large negative deltas?
Even though the position would be very theta positive, I would pony up the debit to cap off the upside risk by buying the 3400/3450 call vertical, hence turning the 3300/3350/3450 broken wing butterfly into the 3300/3350/3400 balanced butterfly. From there on out until expiration, I would look for ways to reduce the debit incurred from that adjustment.

But what if AMZN tanked afterwards? You could end up getting whipsawed.
I’d rather be safe than sorry and make the necessary adjustments to avoid getting run over, because I don’t like playing the hope card. I could always undo the adjustment and look for ways to collect back more credit (at the cost of introducing risk elsewhere), depending on my new directional bias on AMZN at the time.

Your maximum loss is so large, $5000. I’d never make that bet, I would never risk $5000 to make $5000.
This style of trading is not for everyone. There are different ways to perceive risk. I don't really think of risk as binary as “max gain vs max loss”. If the trade goes against me, I’m not going to open myself up to the possibility of eating the maximum loss. I’m going to manage that risk and make sure that I don’t lose any money at all on the trade. Basically, I’m not going to just put on the trade, walk away to the prayer room, and come back at expiration and hope that AMZN expired at 3350.

Why not just join thetagang and slap on iron condors / credit spreads in this environment? You could’ve collected more credit by selling a 50 point wide put vertical with your bounce thesis.
Different traders have different styles. I personally don’t like pure premium selling strategies. I’d rather have long options in front of the shorts to open myself up for some large upside and convexity in the P/L curve, rather than limit myself to the concavity of pure premium selling strategies. Having long options in front of the shorts also helps me sleep better at night.

It’s hard to read this. Is there a more visual explanation?
Here’s a video on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uq76fZ3EME

TL;DR - I used weekly options to trade a potential bounce in AMZN, and got paid $.37 initially to do so, for the possibility of making $50 more. While the trade did not pan out, I walked away pocketing $.81 for being wrong.

SNAP preview, expected move and spread strike selection

SNAP preview, expected move and spread strike selection
  • Snap (SNAP) reports q2 earnings after the close Tuesday (~4:10pm)
  • Options are pricing an expected move of 12% by this Friday. That is the bulk of the move expected over the next month, which is about 15%.
  • Snap closed higher by about 36% in the day following its most recent earnings (in April)
  • Snap has beaten consensus estimates 7 out of the last 8 times.

https://preview.redd.it/d5e4r4ho28c51.png?width=583&format=png&auto=webp&s=9790a1e378ed329c5d66910d814093260814f70d
Neutral - The first thing to look at is a neutral position, selling to both the bulls and the bears. Here are two neutral trades setting breakevens at or near the expected move. First selling the +21.5/-22.5/-28/+29 Iron Condor (condor chart)
In this case the risk reward is $56 to make $44. If the stock closes anywhere between 22.5 and 28 on Friday it is a max gain. Any close beyond 21.5 or 29 and a max loss. The breakeven is 22.06 on the downside and 28.44 on the upside.
That trade establishes a range of max profit, for those targeting no move at all, with the stock remaining at 25 selling an Iron Butterfly has max profit at the 25 level with profits trailing off towards the expected move and losses beyond: Fly chart
Both of these trades are binary, isolating this week and what is likely to be a mostly one day move tomorrow.
Bullish - For those thinking directionally the expected move can be used to help determine strike selection. Here's a bullish price target looking out a bit further in time, to August expiration: Trade comparison.
In this case both the August long call spread (+25/-29) and the August short put spread (-25/+21) take advantage of multi leg strike selection based on the expected move. The short put spread is "selling to the bears" and is profitable from 22.57 and higher with a max gain if the stock is above 25 on August expiration. The long call spread has a higher breakeven, but by selling the 29 call at a high upside volatility, is much cheaper than an outright 25 call.
Bearish - The same is true for a bearish target in line with the expected move but the short call spread is at a slight disadvantage due to having to buy the upside call at a similar or higher IV than the at the money call sale: Trade comparison

2 months back at trading (update) and some new questions

Hi all, I posted a thread back a few months ago when I started getting seriously back into trading after 20 years away. I thought I'd post an update with some notes on how I'm progressing. I like to type, so settle in. Maybe it'll help new traders who are exactly where I was 2 months ago, I dunno. Or maybe you'll wonder why you spent 3 minutes reading this. Risk/reward, yo.
I'm trading 5k on TastyWorks. I'm a newcomer to theta positive strategies and have done about two thirds of my overall trades in this style. However, most of my experience in trading in the past has been intraday timeframe oriented chart reading and momentum stuff. I learned almost everything "new" that I'm doing from TastyTrade, /options, /thetagang, and Option Alpha. I've enjoyed the material coming from esinvests YouTube channel quite a bit as well. The theta gang type strategies I've done have been almost entirely around binary event IV contraction (mostly earnings, but not always) and in most cases, capped to about $250 in risk per position.
The raw numbers:
Net PnL : +247
Commissions paid: -155
Fees: -42
Right away what jumps out is something that was indicated by realdeal43 and PapaCharlie9 in my previous thread. This is a tough, grindy way to trade a small account. It reminds me a little bit of when I was rising through the stakes in online poker, playing $2/4 limit holdem. Even if you're a profitable player in that game, beating the rake over the long term is very, very hard. Here, over 3 months of trading a conservative style with mostly defined risk strategies, my commissions are roughly equal to my net PnL. That is just insane, and I don't even think I've been overtrading.
55 trades total, win rate of 60%
22 neutral / other trades
Biggest wins:
Biggest losses:
This is pretty much where I expected to be while learning a bunch of new trading techniques. And no, this is not a large sample size so I have no idea whether or not I can be profitable trading this way (yet). I am heartened by the fact that I seem to be hitting my earnings trades and selling quick spikes in IV (like weed cures Corona day). I'm disheartened that I've went against my principles several times, holding trades for longer than I originally intended, or letting losses mount, believing that I could roll or manage my way out of trouble.
I still feel like I am going against my nature to some degree. My trading in years past was scalping oriented and simple. I was taught that a good trade was right almost immediately. If it went against me, I'd cut it immediately and look for a better entry. This is absolutely nothing like that. A good trade may take weeks to develop. It's been really hard for me to sit through the troughs and it's been even harder to watch an okay profit get taken out by a big swing in delta. Part of me wonders if I am cut out for this style at all and if I shouldn't just take my 5k and start trading micro futures. But that's a different post...
I'll share a couple of my meager learnings:


My new questions :

That's enough of this wall of text for now. If you made it this far, I salute you, because this shit was even longer than my last post.

Uber earnings, credit spreads and condors.

Here's a 1 month expected move chart with this Friday's move highlighted, via Options AI technology. Uber expected move chart
Neutral Flies and Condors - First let's look neutral with credit Iron Condors and Flies based on the expected move, isolating Friday. Fly Condor comparison.
Let's zoom in on the Iron Condor, in this case, it's a +31.5p/-32p/-37.5c/+38c expiring this Friday. It's just worse than a 1 to 1 risk/reward ratio (1 to 1 would be risking .25 to make .25) with a breakeven near 31.75 on the downside and 37.75 on the upside. Notice those breakevens are just outside the expected move from above.
We can make take the width of the individual spreads from $0.50 to $1 and get the breakeven a little further out with a slightly worse risk/reward ratio, risking about 0.60 to make 0.40.
Bullish and Bearish Credit Spreads - Let's look at a bullish view, in line with the expected move for Aug 21st expiration, using a (bullish) credit put spread: Short put spread Chart
This is selling a 2 dollar wide put spread risking $115 to make $85 with max gain above 34.50 in the stock. This is bullish by simply not being bearish, its higher than 50% probability of profit are based on selling premium to the bears.
Now to bearish, selling a (bearish) 2 wide call spread Short call spread chart
Similar risk reward.

This is a way to avoid owning high implied volatility into an event. But it makes some assumptions. Yes, implied volatility will be lower following an earnings event, but the event itself is binary based on the expected move. It doesn't matter if implied volatility is lower if Uber moves more than its expected move when you've sold a condor. And of course when selling a credit spread directionally, it doesn't matter what vol you sold if the stock moves against you beyond the expected move.
What credit spreads do allow for though, is a non-binary result in that you have a 3rd direction. If you sell the credit spread directionally you can get the direction right, and you can be right even if wrong if the stock goes sideways. And in the case of the condor you can be right at either expected move, as long as it doesn't go beyond. So you have max gain if the stock goes sideways, or even if it moves in either direction, as long as it's inside the expected move. Uber could move in line with it or it could make a big move, but the risk/reward and probability of the trades already reflect that.

discussion regarding POP (probability of profit)

Ok, there seems to be some confusion about POP, making it way more mystical or even "proprietary" than it needs to be, but option PRICING and positioning is crucial in understanding the fundamentals.
First, the actual POP formulas (you can skip this, I'll show you the quick math below in lieu of these, but it's simple formulas for Pete's sake):
Credit Spread: 100 - [(the credit received / strike price width) x 100]
Debit Spread: 100 - [(the max profit / strike price width) x 100]
Iron Condors: 100-((credit received/width of spread)*100)
Naked Options: Strike Price - Premium = breakeven. 100 - (probability of breakeven ITM)= POP
So what is POP? It's the risk/reward weighed over a probability (bell) curve at the time you place your trade. This is reflected in the premium price received weighed against the likely risk or capped max loss.
What is delta? Amount of directional risk.
"Back of the envelope" POP calculation: 100 - delta = POP% (e.g., short 0.30 delta put has 70% POP, an iron condor with 0.16 delta put and 0.16 call is 68% POP) If you do the math, this gets you darn close to the formulas above)
1) The price doesn't set the market, the market sets the price. Just like the Cowboys are 9-1 odds to go to the superbowl, or paying $750 a month for insurance because you smoke cigarettes, it's marketplace, it's statistical. It's definitely not blind magic.
2) Let there be range! Distribution, standard deviations, distribution curves and yes, even variance! It's how the world of options are PRICED and modeled. Price is derived from supply and demand driven by speculation, leverage, binary events (earnings) and fear (hedging)! Implied Volatility (IV) expands and contracts affecting both delta (directional risk) and premium pricing, which in turn affects POP calculation. (Think of the distribution curve expanding and contracting in width and what that means to premium prices and POP) Keep in mind, as the underlyings change, so does delta, so does the risk profile, so does POP. It's dynamic after all. But at the time I place a trade there is a statistical range and liklihood, risk/reward, expressed as POP. That's all. Nothing more. Doesn't mean I'm guaranteed a 70% success rate over 45days, ship it!! All it's saying is what the current marketplace is willing to pay at a given likelihood at that moment vs the accepted risk. (odds)
3) The markets are priced to perfection, fear is overstated. When markets tumble, firms buy up puts for protection and the IV shoots up (demand driven). Another example, when earnings comes around the buying demand goes up, the uncertainty rises, the IV expands, the delta curve widens. IV can be overstated in its rise, and even exploited during binary events in it's collapse, given that IV ALWAYS reverts back to the mean. This edge is not huge, but is figured to be 2-3% in favor (outside of binary). IV influences price, which affects POP.
4) The art of adjustment. If delta moves too high (risk), adjustments can be made by rolling (up or out) or with offsetting positions (i.e.,opposing spreads or pair trades) to reduce the position's overall delta... while often collecting additional premium while doing so! You can not do that cheaply or easily buying options...and guess what? Adjustments have POP! Furthermore, Tastytrade studies are showing that managing winners aggressively (i.e., 50%) increases POP even further, in that, we are reducing the number of days the trade is on and therefore eliminating risk increasing win rate. We can see 70% POP trades actually become 80% POP by adjusting at 50% profit.
5) Why does TastyTrade coin the term POP? First of all, every trader and brokerage platform models the probability of profit in similar form, it's just terminology. IB calls it "percentage of profit" for example. But moreso, your brokerage doesn't know how to trade options, doesn't give a fuck to teach you about trading options. Buy calls, pay 1.50-$8 a trade, and wait until expiration helplessly. TastyTrade is free. Ad free even (how refreshing). And if you want, they offer the cheapest brokerage fee out there in TastyWorks, if you so oblige.
Keep in mind this discussion did not touch on theta (time decay/acceleration) or gamma (delta velocity) which further affect price movements.

Learning options... can you answer these questions please?

Hello, I'm transitioning from Binary options to Options. With binary it was simple: Call or Put. With options its more complex which is appealing to me because of its "flexibility." Now I am new and plan to trade with a small account (when i start). For now I study and paper trade. Here are some questions I hope to have answered:
1) Difference between a NAKED call, a COVERED call, and any other call i should know about?
2) Is it me or do options traders NEVER just Call or put? In other words, if i think XYZ is going to trend upward strongly.. why sell a put when i can just buy a call?
3) how do you learn all the spreads? I know i can youtube the different options spreads and learn about them.. But what i want to know is what spreads should every noobie options trader definitely understand? I'm not expected to know how to set up an iron condor or any of those complex spreads off of the top of my head, as a noobie trader, am I?
4) I've studied the basics of options.. the black scholes model... the greeks... i've watched videos on spreads.. i've learned about the importance of liquidity.. but i feel like i need to start applying (by paper trading and then going live)... but i have never seen anyone trade before. I have only read about the art. I dont have any friends that trade. So when I open TOS and i want to look for options to trade, I don't even know where to start looking as far as underlyings go.. I've read people suggest with just trading SPY options as a noobie. Should i just learn by trading options with one underlying at a time only? or Should i just take on a couple different underlying options at the same time to learn how to manage?
I''d appreciate your responses and ANY additional suggestions you may have.. thanks in advance!
PS - I spend a lot of time watching Tastytrade videos and other options related videos on Youtube. any better suggestions to speed up my learning?

The iron condor spread is a good alternative to the iron butterfly spread if you are trying to profit from a neutral outlook.
