Big -7.97% Change: After closing the last trading session at $100.56, TARGET opened today at $99.12 and has reached a low of $92.07.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -7.97% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if TGT maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $92.55 on 15-May-2020. 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 TARGET closes at or below $93.50 on 15-May-2020. Based on our risk-neutral analysis, there is a 51.83% likelihood of this return.
