NEW DIRECTIONAL PUT PLAYS

Infosys Tech. - INFY - close: 54.50 change: +0.39 stop: 56.25

Why We Like It:
The trend for INFY is still up but shares are on the verge of breaking support near its rising 50-dma. The 2009 rally off its lows has been so strong that if INFY finally does breakdown the sell-off could be significant. I'm suggesting we use small put positions and use a trigger to initiate the trade at $53.40. If triggered our first target is $50.15. Our second target is $46.50.

Suggested Options:
If INFY hits our trigger I am suggesting the February $50 puts. $55s and $52.50 strikes would also work.
