February 2019 RUT Credit Put spread

With the VIX above 23, RUT down 20% from its peak and all the oscillators pointing to an oversold environment, I'm going with a Credit Put spread using February options.
Trade Details:
SELL 4 February RUT 1180/1170 Credit Put spreads @0.70

Credit:          $280 (0.70 x 4 x 100)
Max Risk: $3,720 (9.30 x 4 x 100)

The max risk in this position is $3720 and the return (or loss) will be based on this "investment". Of course, in case of loss I would never allow it to reach that maximum and some defense would be applied in advance. But for the purpose of calculating a % return on risk at the end, this amount of $3,720 will be used.
