No prospective new positions for Friday — no earnings announcements liquid enough to meet my standards and most high-volatility plays are disallowed because they will be publishing earnings soon. I prefer to wait for the last trading day before an announcement to place my trade.
Earnings season begins Monday with AA’ announcement.
Meanwhile, on Friday I shall continue to focus on winding up my positions that expire Jan. 20.
