Strangling VVUS

Vivus Inc (Ticker: VVUS)

The bias on the daily chart is obviously to the downside. However, VVUS is due to report its earning on Monday, giving the possibility of an upside surprise. Thus, this is the right time to apply a 22/23 near month strangle here. Volatility and volume have since dropped from the past few days forming a symmetrical triangle.We hope to see a strong break to either side.
