Here is our next weekly options income trade. It is a bearish view on a stock that was unable to rally on a week where the broader markets did and reached an area of price resistance.

Master Trader Tip: Stocks that cannot rally when the broader markets do have shown relative weakness — and are very likely to fall when the markets retrace.


Below is a daily chart of The Walt Disney Company (DIS), $101.50.


Trade:   Under $100.00, consider shorting Sep (9/8) $102/105 bear call spread (5 DTE) for mid-point (closed at $.45/share).

Technical Setup:   Bearish 1-2-3 consolidation after Bearish Pro Gap below price support, key moving averages and bearish consolidation on the daily chart. The weekly time frame (not shown) also suggests lower prices.

Option Strategy:   Bear Call Credit Spread (BCS).

Stop Loss:  $102.02. Above this level the strategy is working, so we close the trade.
