Live: Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017

8/9 – 3:20 p.m. New York time

Outcomes: I entered two new positions, KSS and M, and exited three positions, CAR, CBS and TRIP.

8/9 – 10:20 a.m. New York time

I have exited CAR and TRIP, allowing room for me to analyze and perhaps trade the last prospect of the day, KSS.

8/9 – 9:50 a.m. New York time

I have exited CBS, creating space in the portfolio to analyze my first prospect for the day, M.

8/8 – 9 p.m. New York time

I have two prospective earnings plays for Wednesday: KSS and M. But they come with a caveat. I’ve committed my buying power to prior trades, so entering either of these positions will depend upon whether I can exit existing positions.
