Trade of the Day: XLF September $15/$16/$17 call butterfly for $0.21

The Trade
A trader set up the XLF September $15/$16/$17 call butterfly, 25,000x50,000 at $0.21.

The trader is making a large bullish bet on the Financials. The trader is using a butterfly which means both  risk and profit are limited. The spread's max profit occurs at an underlying stock price of $16 before September expiration. It's interesting to note that FAS led the offer side call action today, showing more bullish action.

The white line above in the XLF daily stock chart is the max profit stock price for the butterfly spread. The 52-week range for XLF is a low of $13.29 and a high of $17.20.
