Trade Alert – (FXA)

Buy the Currency Shares Australian Dollar Trust (FXA) October $87-$90 bull call spread at $2.70 or best

Opening Trade


expiration date: 10-18-2013

Portfolio weighting: 10%

Number of Contracts = 39 contracts.

These (FXA) options are fairly illiquid, and trade at double the normal spread found in the foreign exchange options market, so execution here is crucial. Put in a limit order for the spread that works for you. If you don’t get done, just walk away and wait fore the next Trade Alert, of which there will be many.

The best execution can be had by placing your bid for the entire spread in the middle market and waiting for the market to come to you. The difference between the bid and the offer on these deep in-the-money spread trades can be enormous. Don’t execute the legs individually or you will end up losing much of your profit.
Keep in mind that these are ballpark prices only. Spread pricing can be very volatile on expiration months further out.

Here are the specific trades you need to execute this position:

Buy 39 October, 2013 (FXA) $87 calls at……………..…$5.70
Sell short 39 October, 2013 (FXA) $90 calls at……….…$3.00


Net Cost:………………………………….……..………….$2.70

Potential Profit: $3.00 – $2.70 = $0.30

($.30 X 100 X 39) = $1,100 – 1.1% for the notional $100,000 model portfolio.
