Live: Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017

8/10 – 3:20 p.m. New York time

Today I entered a new position on SNAP timed to coincide with an earnings announcement, and exited M above my target.

I analyzed NVDA and JWN but declined to take the trades.

8/10 – 9:50 a.m. New York time

I have exited M for a profit.

8/9 – 9:15 p.m. New York time

I have three earnings plays under consideration for action on Thursday: SNAP, NVDA and JWN.
