So the account's trade on EXAS (bought shares and then sold the July $5.00 call) is two weeks old now. There are 15 weeks left until expiration of the option. The activity of the last two weeks for the trade are below.
EXAS stock has moved down about 36 cents since the account bought shares. It has not been above the price which the account bought the stock. Also, it had seven straight down days until this past Wednesday. The stock is right now around its 50 day moving average. EXAS is still well over the stop loss for the trade. There has not been any new company news since the trade was made.
The price of the call has also fallen. It has fallen about 30 cents since the account sold the contract. The fact that the call has not fallen as much as the stock indicates that there is still some strong bullish sentiment on the company's outlook in the market. The call is being bid at $0.95, which is over 20% of the stock price.
The account will keep going and monitoring the trade. There has not been any fundamental or technical reason to change or abandon the trade. There is actually more value in doing the trade now than when the account did two weeks ago!
