Trade Rationale

WDAY was my typical post-earnings trade setup. It spiked at earnings, followed by a pullback to pre-earnings level, causing me to jump on this trade with a $220-$225 call spread. Read on to find out what happened next.

Trade Analysis

Although, this was typical earnings trade setup and I was expecting it to be fully profitable, it coincided with a massive 14% pullback in NASDAQ in Septmeber. Due to this WDAY kept dropping like a rock all the way down to $195! At this point, I had no hope for any recovery and I added a "bail out" trade for it. Bail out trades are covered in my book's second edition which is due to come out soon. Although, the stock sold off most of the month, but I was able to get out for a scratch (no profit or loss at the end of the month).
