Why We Like It:
ECA is currently a strangle play in the newsletter but we have decided to add it as a normal call play as well. The stock has a bullish pattern of higher lows and shares look poised to breakout over resistance at $70.00 soon. We're suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $70.10. If triggered then our target is the $74.85-75.00 range.

Suggested Options:
Aggressive traders could use January options but they expire in less than three weeks. We're suggesting the February calls.

BUY CALL FEB 70.00 ECA-BN open interest=247 current ask $3.10
BUY CALL FEB 75.00 ECA-BO open interest= 63 current ask $1.15
