Live: Friday, July 7, 2017

7/7 – 3:25 p.m. New York time

Outcomes: I exited WGO for a loss; see the analysis for results. I have two exit orders active for the final half hour of trading on XLK and KBH and shall update their analyses with results if they are filled. No new positions.

7/7 – 1:35 p.m. New York time

I have exited WGO for a loss, exiting early to avoid an ex-dividend event.

7/7 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

On the agenda today: Exits at my target, which is 25% of maximum potential profit, should any be possible. I have exit orders placed for XLK and KBH, but they have yet to be filled.

No entry into new positions in sight for the day.

7/6 – 9:30 p.m. New York time

I have no prospective new positions for action on Friday.

None of my existing positions expires next week, so there will be no urgent exits prior to the weekend.
