Big -8.81% Change: After closing the last trading session at $335.79, BAIDU opened today at $315.00 and has reached a low of $290.00.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -8.81% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if BIDU maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $306.20 on 16-Apr-2021. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.
