Trade Alert – (FXE)
BUY the Currency Shares Euro Trust (FXE) June, 2015 $113-$116 in-the-money vertical bear put spread at $2.55 or best
expiration date: June 19, 2015
Portfolio weighting: 10%
Number of Contracts = 39 contracts
The Currency Shares Euro Trust (FXE) June, 2015 $113-$116 in-the-money vertical bear put spread is showing a middle market price on my screen of $2.55 right now. You can pay anywhere from $2.40-$2.70 for this spread and it still makes sense.
Don?t hold me to these prices. They are ballpark estimates, at best. The spread on deep in the money are wide.
But if you place a limit order close to my price, you should get done. If not, then keep moving it up in penny increments until you get done.
If you can?t buy do the options, then just buy the (EUO) outright.
It is just a matter of time before the buck breaks parity with the euro. Eventually, the (FXE) will reach the apex of a triangle in its price movement, and then break down once again. But I think that time is later, not sooner.
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. Spread pricing can be very volatile on expiration months farther out.
If the price of this spread has moved more than 5% by the time you receive this Trade Alert, don?t chase it. Wait for the next one. There are plenty of fish in the sea.
Here are the specific trades you need to execute this position:
Buy 39 June, 2015 (FXE) $116 puts at?????$6.70
Sell short 39 June, 2015 (FXE) $113 puts at..??.$4.15
Potential Profit: $3.00 – $2.55 = $0.45
