PepsiCo Stock – Trade Alert – Stopped Out of PEP Stock

On Wednesday I sold naked puts in PepsiCo Stock (PEP Stock) into Nov options expiry at the $70 put strike for .88 cents. I also bought shares in PepsiCo Stock for $70.09 and was looking for a bounce above $71.00

I had my sell in yesterday for $71.00, however PepsiCo Stock failed to reach $71.00. This morning I was stopped out at $70.55 near the open.

PepsiCo Stock Issued No Buy Signal

PepsiCo Stock has not received a buy signal yet from MACD. MACD came close yesterday but failed to issue the needed buy signal. I had bought on Wednesday and based on the charts for Wednesday I thought there would be a bounce on Thursday or Friday that would take the stock back above $71.00. I had my order to sell in at $71.00 but did not get a fill as PepsiCo Stock rose just to $70.91. I should have sold there in hindsight. This morning I was stopped out at $70.55 within the first couple of minutes of trading.
