This option strategy is conservative in retirement accounts, or investing. Just have to buy stocks/option at same time. If PA stays in between current PA of $36.80-$40.00 now & in between 7/20/18- you still make $88.00, then get $3,680 back in account minus margin account fees. *Is $408 in profit more then you could make in interest on $3,680 in your bank? at 1%-6%? My guess is yes. Trading is all about having a solid foundation to trade off of.
Comment: Look at Monthly on this stock to see why PA turned bearish, $36-$42 is major resistance or ceiling. See $22-$25 area area as buy area for this again.
