7/24 – 6:10 p.m. New York time

I have completed updating the analyses of positions I exited with results: CSX, GE, IBM, QCOM, HOG, NFLX and YUMC.

7/24 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

I have completed my mandatory exits of positions expiring at the market close on Friday: CSX, GE, IBM, QCOM, HOG, NFLX and YUMC. HOG and  YUMC were profitable, although less than my target. The remainder were exited for losses.

I shall update the analyses with results late in the trading, and possibly not until after the losing bell

Next on the day’s agenda, three entries timed to coincide with earnings announcements: STX, CAT and MCD. I had intended to also look at APC, but it is the least liquid of the three, and given the high number of earnings plays throughout the week, I am cutting APC to save space for other opportunities.

7/23 – 12:15 a.m. New York time

I shall be look at four earnings plays on Monday: STX, APC, CAT and MCD.
