8/3 – 7:05 p.m. New York time

As I expected, the protective exit orders I placed on AAPL and STX expired unfilled while I was airborne over the Pacific. Both reach the mandatory exit date on Monday, so I shall be actively working to to manage the positions.

I have updated ADM with results. I exited the position on Aug. 2 but was unable to complete results calculation because of my travel schedule.

8/2 – 5 p.m. New York time

I shall be unable to trade Thursday’s session because I’ll be flying from Japan back to the United States. I shall place admittedly improbable exit orders on AAPL and STX at my target price, 25% of maximum potential profit, prior to Thursday’s market open and update with outcomes after the closing bell.
