NEW DIRECTIONAL PUT PLAYS
iShares Biotech - IBB - close: 77.86 change: -1.03 stop: 80.05
Why We Like It:
Biotech stocks are rolling over. The BTK index is failing under the 900 level. In a similar fashion the IBB has failed near $80.00. This failed rally pattern is a new entry point for bearish trades. I'm suggesting put positions now with a stop loss at $80.05. The biotech stocks can be a volatile group so I'm suggesting small positions. Our target is near the November lows at $73.50.
I'm suggesting the December puts. My preference is for the $75 strike.
