Big -8.26% Change: After closing the last trading session at $107.69, CONOCOPHILLIPS opened today at $105.17 and has reached a low of $98.31.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -8.26% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if COP maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $98.80 on 15-Jul-2022. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.
