5/19 – 3:25 p.m. New York time

I entered one new position on Friday, on the EWZ exchange-traded fund.

I exited three positions, each for a profit. They are AMATCRM and GPS,

5/19 – 10:55 a.m. New York time

I have exited AMAT for a profit and shall update the analysis with results later today. Analyses for my exits earlier today, CRM and GPS, have been updated.

5/19 – 9:50 a.m. New York time

I shall be looking at three exchange-traded funds as potential trades: EWZ, EEM and IWM.

I have exited two positions today so far: CRM and GPS, both profitably. I shall update their analyses with results later today.

5/18 – 8:55 p.m. New York time

I have no earnings plays on my desk for action on Friday.

Several liquid exchange-traded funds have seen their implied volatility jump during the week, and I shall be looking at them on Friday as potential trades.
