Intraday Update: WDAY, CHPT
A large gap lower on top Software name ADBE this morning (released earnings, announced a deal) is weighing on the sector broadly, and WDAY is opening below the 50day sma to trigger the stop for the Oct21 $175 - $185 call spread. The position needs to be closed early before a major breakdown can develop.
Take the money and run on CHPT. Another strong morning has CHPT through the August high, and the Sep30 $19 - $21 call spread roll up is now into the money. Both the bull and bear portions of the strangle (Sep30 $14 - $11.50 put spread) will be closed this morning and we will wait for a new setup.
