Intraday Update: LCID

We went ahead with the LCID Sep16 $18 - $13 put spread initiation yesterday even as the stock rose sharply because the bearish pattern remained intact. The stock rolled over into the afternoon yesterday and it has dropped sharply this morning, triggering a breakdown through key support at 17.75. The put spread is up significantly since the initiation, so this is a nice opportunity to lock in some fast gains ahead of the potential volatile session tomorrow. The plan will be to close the current Sep16 $18 - $13 put spread and roll down to a tighter Sep16 $16 - $13 put spread. The next target is <16.
