Trade approach: A movement as big as -12.18% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if NATI maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $33.23 on 18-Sep-2020. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.
