Potential Market Vectors Gold Miners (GDX) Trade Has 9.40% Downside Protection

Feb 14, 2018 ( via COMTEX) --

After Feb 13, 2018aEUR(TM)s trading in Market Vectors Gold Miners (<a href="">GDX</a>)'s option trade-picking algorithms uncovered a trade that offers a 5.36% or 16.19% (for comparison purposes only), while providing 9.40% downside protection. The trade is a Jun 15, 2018 covered call at the $21 level for a net debit of about $19.92. The net debit is also the breakeven point for this trade. For a higher return, consider buying a longer-term call option, like the Jan 18, 2019 at the $14 level. By buying the call for $8.55 instead of paying about $22 for the stock, the assigned return rate for this alternate trade is 8.02%, but the stock has to finish above $20.48 when the sold call expires for this trade to be profitable. Technical indicators for the stock have been bearish and support and resistance have been in the area of $21.71 and $22.23, respectively.
