Live: Tuesday, July 18, 2017

7/18 – 3:35 p.m. New York time

No trades today, neither entries nor exits.

7/18 – 7:05 a.m. New York time

Exits only are on the agenda today, and so far no positions are even close to reaching that point. I shall continue checking during the day.

7/17 – 7:45 p.m. New York time

I plan to enter no new positions on Tuesday, nor do I have any mandatory exits. If the opportunity for a profitable exit arises, then of course I shall take it. NFLX and HOG, in particular, will have published earnings by Tuesday’s open, and so may be profitable enough to exit.

A reminder: Wednesday is a trans-Pacific travel day for me. I intend to check my holdings for exits before boarding my flight, but I won’t be doing a full trading operation by any means, and my posting on theĀ Private Trader site and the Twitter and Facebook notifications may be sketchy at best.

Two holdings will have published earnings by the opening bell on Wednesday — CSX and IBM — and so may be ready for profitable exits.
