Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Bear Put Spread trade opportunity for NIO INC (NIO) for the 1-Nov-2019 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

NIO was recently trading at $1.57 and has an implied volatility of 141.54% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for NIO expiring on 1-Nov-2019, there is a 34.14% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $1.27-$1.57 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 29.68%.

Big -7.40% Change: After closing the last trading session at $1.69, NIO INC opened today at $1.70 and has reached a low of $1.53.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -7.40% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if NIO maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $1.57 on 1-Nov-2019. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.

Upside potential: Using this bearish strategy, the trade would be profitable if NIO INC closes at or below $1.62 on 1-Nov-2019. Based on our risk-neutral analysis, there is a 56.42% likelihood of this return.

Downside risk: As with any options trade, there is a substantial downside risk where you may lose most or all of your investment.

Synthetic Long Discount Alert: MACERICH $MAC trading at a 11.44% discount for the 21-Jan-2022 expiration

Quantcha now offering unlimited commission-free options trading.

Quantchabot has detected a promising Synthetic Long Stock trade opportunity for MACERICH (MAC) for the 21-Jan-2022 expiration period. You can analyze the opportunity in depth over at the Quantcha Options Search Engine.

MAC was recently trading at $28.01 and has an implied volatility of 14.12% for this period. Based on an analysis of the options available for MAC expiring on 21-Jan-2022, there is a 68.27% likelihood that the underlying will close within the analyzed range of $17.51-$49.04 at expiration. In this scenario, the average linear return for the trade would be 65.20%.

Upside potential: This synthetic long position offers the same potential benefits and liabilities as a long stock position, but at a discount due to the significant premium at-the-money puts are trading at over calls. In this case, the long call position is opened at a strike of $27.50, which is already $0.51 in the money. An out-of-the-money put at the same strike is sold to finance the call, resulting in a net credit of $2.70 per share. The final position can be considered as having a discount of $3.21 per share over the underlying price of $28.01 for a 11.46% total.

Downside risk: This discount is generally a sign of the stock facing considerable short pressure, and may indicate that the stock has become hard to borrow. However, if you have a long view of the underlying over this period, it could be a good opportunity to benefit from the upside at a major discount.
