9/2 – 4:55 p.m. New York time

I analyzed RIG but declined to take the trade.

An exit order on ADM was filled. I’m catching a flight back to the United States shortly, so I shall defer posting the full results until my arrival in Portland, Oregon on Thursday after the closing bell. I can say now that the exit was at my target, about 25% of maximum potential profit, which produces a yield on debit of about 33%.

8/1 – 10:55 p.m. New York time

A slight change in plans: I shall analyze RIG on Wednesday as a potential earnings play.
