Trade of the Day: Selling the AA July 13th weekly 8 strike, buying the 9 strike Call Vertical Spread for $.57
Profitable: I make money on this trade if AA closes under $8.57 on July 13 , 2012.
Break-even: I break-even on this trade if AA closes at $8.57 on July 13, 2012.
Unprofitable: I lose money on this trade if AA closes above $8.57 or July 13, 2012. The most I can lose on this trade is the amount I sold the Spread for $.57. Commissions not included. Margin is $43 each spread.
Risk: $43 per each spread
Reward: $57 per each spread
Chart: Bearish overall , but looking for a good risk vs reward that it tests back lower

UPDATE 7.9.2012 This Spread is worth $.60, but I am leaving this trade on until earnings today after the bell.
