Anatomy of a Trade: DIS

From Theory To Practice

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

A couple of months ago, we did our first Anatomy of a Trade as part of From Theory to Practice, where we discussed a recent strangle position in TSLA. Today, we offer our second installment of an Anatomy of a Trade with a call diagonal in DIS. This trade was unique because it was actually an easy winner from start to finish, but strategies that span across multiple expiration cycles (like calendars or diagonals) can be difficult to understand how to manage properly. Therefore, we explore several ways this trade could have been adjusted, had we decided to keep it on, rather than take it off.
