When The Boeing Company (BA) reported on April 27, the company missed on earnings by $2.50 per share. It also missed revenue expectations by $2.03 billion.
It was a hard hit for Boeing, to say the least.
However, it could be the trigger for a nice shorting setup that could be well worth our while!
The Technical Setup
As long as price action settles below the channel structure, which it broke in the image below by 1%+, the price action should follow through to test the full channel extension.
As you can see on the right side of the chart, I detailed where I’d ideally like to short this stock if in fact it meets our entry criteria.
I placed a dotted line where I’d place my stop loss and a solid line below where I’d place my target.
I personally wouldn’t short the stock, even though that’s the setup at hand here.
Another Bearish Option
Instead, I’d take this information to the options market where I could get a leveraged position for the suspected move that the chart is suggesting.
I’d consider the BA October 21, 2022, expiration $110 strike put options (BA221021P00110000).
These should give the trade enough time to transpire without running into time decay, and the target should be “in the money” by the time we’re ready to book profits as long as this trade goes our way…
But again, I’d await a weekly confirmation of the price action prior to acting on this idea.
We’d like to see that 1%+ confirmation before we bet on any future follow-through.
Your Next Side Job?
Trading shouldn’t be your main source of income, but it can be a great side job.
In fact, my colleague and expert trader, Josh Martinez, describes his trading strategy as possibly “the world’s most profitable side job”…
This strategy helped Josh turn an initial deposit investment of $500 into $39,282 in less than two years.
All you have to do is access a little-known portal in your brokerage account and start copying Josh’s strategy — step by step, and trade by trade.
It really is that simple.
