Intraday Update: HYG, MDB

Two more updates after an already-busy morning:

  • HYG has hit the next target zone this morning, so more money will be locked in on the trade. The plan will be to close the current Oct21 $76 - $72 put spread and roll down to a tighter Oct21 $75 - $72 put spread. The next target will be <74.25.
  • MDB is at the debit stop for the Sep16 $370 - $380 call spread. MDB has turned lower over the past few sessions along with the overall market, and that has hurt the ramp into the report setup. The trade needs to be closed today and we can potentially look for a new setup after the numbers come out this week.
