Intraday Update: META, BABA

This morning certainly threw a wrench in our trade ideas from yesterday's letter! META is up huge overnight (partially in response to SNAP updating metrics this morning) and BABA has popped sharply early as well, and both proposed trades from yesterday have changed.

We will need to hold off initiating the META strangle because the stock has moved materially (and the setup is completely different now), but we can adjust the action area of the BABA Oct21 $105 - $115 call spread up to $2.40 - $2.70 to get involved. Because we are raising the net debit of the BABA position and opening the trade after it has already moved ~$4, you should plan your size accordingly.
