Stock / Symbol: McDonalds / MCD

Option Strategy: [private_monthly]calendar spread[/private_monthly]
Price at trade post: $94.90

Reasoning: Thinking that MCD will continue to trade between the 92 and 98 range, we're going for a non-directional trade with a call calendar spread. We're leaving some powder dry on this one in case we need to adjust by adding a 2nd calendar. Odds of success on this trade are 70% to the downside and 75% to the upside[/private_monthly]
