Live: Monday, April 3, 2017

3/3 – 3:08 p.m. New York time

And as expected, no trades today. My position on TJX is approaching a point where I can consider putting in an exit order at my target price. My LOW position is at a point where exiting for a loss will be the best course of action.

3/3 – 7:25 a.m. New York time

No trades in sight for today, exits or new positions.

3/2 – 8:05 p.m. New York time

I have no potential earnings plays in sight for Monday and indeed for the rest of the week. With the next earnings season only three weeks out, I plan to conserve trading funds rather than searching out volatility plays independent of earnings events.
