Neutral double calendar Earnings 49P 56C mar23 mar29

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/OsBXckpZ/ Trying out this strategy for earnings tomorrow, when sets up with good IV spread the crush should profit what is typically considered a bought spread. Direction is not an issue, only that the break-even points are outside of recent earnings moves. This setup goes as wide as possible without letting the belly of the ...

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/OsBXckpZ/ This is what I call a Ecalendar for pre earnings announcemnet calendar spread to take advantage of the volatility expansion that occurs somewhere from 30-45 days before an earnings binary event.

MSFT Options - Opening Sep22 Oct20 Put Calendar 72.5

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/OsBXckpZ/ It is right around the time that the volatility may expand pre-earnings (E announce in about a month). This trade will benefit if volatility does indeed expand. Typical historical IV expansion is about 50%, this kind of boost can override a lot of price movement - msft price when it moves tends to run up prior to ...

https://www.tradingview.com/chart/OsBXckpZ/ 1. After earnings many stocks hit a low notch in IV which looking at IV chart looks very predictable (others look more random as to when) This calendar will benefit from a volatility expansion and time looks about right and have been meaning to try one of these. 2.
