7/28 – 6:30 p.m. New York time

I have updated with results the analyses of the four positions I exited: INTCHESHAL and MCD.

7/28 – 5:35 p.m. New York time

Two additional exit orders were filled during the session: HAL and MCD. Results for all four exits to be posted shortly,

7/28 – 9:55 a.m. New York time

With a week to go until expiration, it’s time for the Aug. 4 weekly options to move toward the exits.

I have exited INTC at a little above my target — 25% of maximum potential profit — and HES at a few points above half of my target.

I have placed exit orders on FB, HAL, MCD, SBUX and TWTR in the hopes that they’ll be triggered during the trading day. All not exited today will be mandatory exits on Monday.

I shall with results the analyses of exited positions after the closing bell.

7/28 – 6 a.m. New York time

I have no new positions in sight for Friday and shall be looking for exits only, particularly among those positions expiring Aug. 4.
