Live: Thursday, July 13, 2017

7/13 – 3:25 p.m. New York time

Outcomes: I entered positions on C, JPM and WFC, and exited a position on DAL.

I analyzed FHN, INFY and PNC but declined to take the trades. I have an exit order on KBH that I shall keep alive until the closing bell.

7/13 – 1:45 p.m. New York time

I have exited DAL.

7/13 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

Among my prospects for new positions, implied volatility on C has fallen below my standards, removing it from the agenda for now. I’ll keep an eye on it during the day and revive it if IV improves. The remaining five prospects remain on the agenda: FHN, INFY, JPM, PNC and WFC.

I have placed exit orders at my targets on DAL and KBH.

7/12 – 10:35 p.m. New York time

As earnings season continues to pick up momentum, I have six plays on my prospects list for Thursday, all timed to coincide with earnings announcements. They are C, FHN, INFY, JPM, PNC and WFC.
