I am interested in getting into the AXP straddle at $77.50 mentioned in the 'trades you can make' today, but am concerned about the exposure on the sold call. I understand that I am covered on the sold put and could be put the stock at $77.50 less the income generated by the sold straddle for a net cost of about $69. Is there, however, unlimited exposure on the call if the stock goes up substantially before expiration? Or am I missing something.
Thanks
