1-04-11 March T-Bonds appear to be currently stuck in a bear flag and we are thinking that we should continue lower in the next few days. We are buying a March 120/117 bear put spread and helping offset the cost by selling a naked 126 call. The spread is $125 before commission considerations. The profit potential is limited to $3,000 and the risk above 126 is unlimited, between 126 and 120 the risk is limited to the premium cost.
There is a substantial risk of loss in trading futures and options.
