7/19 – 9:35 a.m. New York time

Two symbols — CSX and PM — are within 10 points of my target, and I have placed exit orders at the target. Since I shall be traveling all day, I won’t know the outcome of those orders until after the market close. Otherwise, I plan no trades today.

7/18 – 9:45 p.m. New York time

I shall spend most of Wednesday flying to East Asia and so shall, if I’m lucky, spend only about 15 minutes with my trading.

Two positions, CSX and IBM, publish earnings prior to the opening bell and are my top priority for an exit if they reach my target price. I shall also check the other positions and exit any that reach target.

I won’t have time to calculate profit and loss, so expect that sometime on Thursday or, worst case, Friday.
