There is no way to know with certainty as the implied volatility is determined in the markets and we can't know how much this will fall after the earnings announcement. One could try to estimate how much it would decline from looking at what happened following previous announcements, but it would still only be an approx. The best approach would be to estimate implied volatility after the announcement and then plug that into a BS OPM spreadsheet. Then you could trial-and-error the stock price

Great video, very clear. Thanks. But just wondering, since for straddles, we look for big movements after the earnings, how do we know how much it SHOULD move in order to know we are in the greens before we get rid of them? If say from your example, AAPL did move only that much higher, $10, I want to know how much it should move above or below the current price in order to know we're going to profit from the trade.
