3/30 – 3:25 p.m. New York time

I’m shutting down for the day with no analyses and no trades.

3/30 – 10;30 a.m. New York time

I’ve run through the list of potential earnings plays for next week and have found none that qualify. Only YUMC made it past the stock liquidity and price screens — $20 or greater per share and a million shares per day on average. However, it’s options grid for May, my current expiration, has low open interest on the strikes I would need to use for a trade, so absent a large improvement, I won’t be attempting a trade.

3/30 – 9:50 a.m. New York time

With no prospective entries and no exits in sight, this is shaping up to be quite an  uninteresting day.

3/29 – 6:10 p.m. New York time

I have no prospective new positions for Thursday.
