5/2 – 3:40 p.m. New York time

Today I entered new positions on AAPL and GILD.

I have an exit order in on KRE but it has yet to be filled. If it goes through I shall update the analysis after the closing bell.

5/2 – 10:15 a.m. New York time

Both prospects, AAPL and GILD, continue to qualify as trades, and I shall post analyses of both later today.

I am attempting an exit from my KRE position at my target price. The order has not yet been filled.

5/1 – 8:55 p.m. New York time

I’m looking at two prospects for Tuesday: AAPL and GILD. Both are earnings plays.

Three liquid exchange-traded funds have sufficient implied volatility to support a trade. They are FEZ and EFA. My goal is two or three trades per day, and if the earnings plays on my list fail to meet my criteria on Tuesday, I shall consider turning to this ETF list as prospective trades.
