Big -10.59% Change: After closing the last trading session at $174.81, EXPEDIA opened today at $168.40 and has reached a low of $152.71.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -10.59% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if EXPE maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $156.30 on 15-Jul-2022. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.
