LULU 9/8/16 – Look Back Trade

LULU – 09/08/2016

This was a credit put spread I placed based on both technicals and the fact that LULU has shown strength over this some time period in past years. I really felt this was a pretty good quality set up when I took it. I made one big error by not really having an exit plan in place when I entered the trade. I let it get away from me a little, I probably should have either taken a smaller loss before this or adjusted.

The main reason I chose not to attempt an adjustment was because I could not really see where I thought this stock would be going. Any attempted adjustment would be a guess. I knew I had better trades out there so decided not to try and fight this one just for the sake of attempting to save it.
