AAPL straddle

#Pinning #ShortStraddle
STO AAPL Jan 15th 100 straddle for 2.34.

Based on gigantic Open Interest on the $AAPL 100 calls and puts, this is a pinning play. Pinning tends to work best on monthly expirations. This has a profit zone between 97.60 and 102.40. You can also reduce your risk and make this an #IronButterfly by buying 102 call and 98 put, which should give you 1.40 credit with .60 max risk.
