- Over the past 13 quarters since mid-2013
- Measured the 5-day performance before and into earnings

Comment: The stock is now down more than 10% since the inception of this idea against a flat/up market. Sell one more put on the Dec 16 '16 maturity with a lower, $700 strike and cash in nearly $10/share in premium. This makes the strategy a 0-cost one. Worst-case scenario if exercised is to be long 200 shares of AMZN at $725 against a strong support at $700/share. Risk is also staggered over 2 monthly options maturities so minimal.

Comment: $700/share corresponds to the support from the previous top reached on Dec 29 2015 ($696.44) and to the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement from the top of the move initiated in Feb 2016. To this extent, after the recent vertical downfall and underperformance, it makes sense to bet on a rebound on the 700 support, if we get there.
