6/3 – 11 a.m. New York time

I did no trades beyond the two noted this morning, exiting NKE and KRE. Their analyses have been updated with results.

U.S. markets will be closed on Tuesday in observance of Independence Day. Normal hours of trading resume on Wednesday, July 5.

6/3 – 9:40 a.m. New York time

I completed my agenda for the day within the first five minutes after the opening bell, having exited NKE and KRE, both of which expire on Friday. I have no new positions in sight today.

The U.S. stock markets close early today, before the Independence Day celebration, at 1 p.m. New York time.

6/2 – 9:35 p.m. New York tine

U.S. stock markets close three hours early on Monday, the day before Independence Day in the United States and will be closed all day Tuesday for the holiday.

I have no potential earnings plays on my desk for action on Monday.

Two positions, KRE and NKE, expire at the end of the week, and I shall attempt an exit on Monday, although it is uncertain whether there will be sufficient liquidity for the trades to go through.
