Times are New York time.
I've opened a bearish position on S&P 500 binary options.
S&P 500 (Nadex:US500) 9:55 a.m. entry: Short the >2056 strike for a $44.88 debit with the index price at $2062.33.
Exit 12:55 p.m.: For a $76.25 credit with the index price at $2,054.79.
Results: Shares declined by 0.4% over three hours, or a -1,096% annual rate. The options produced a 69.9% yield on debit, for a +204,101% annual rate.
|SPX at 1:15 p.m., one day 5-minute bars|
The price fell steadily through most of the day. I exited when the price began to turn up, confirmed by an oversold signal from the Stochastic Slow %D line on the 15-minute chart.-- Tim Bovee, Portland, Oregon, July 8, 2015
