Live: Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017

8/31 – 3:10 p.m. New York time

I entered a position on LULU and exited positions on CIEN, CTRP and DG.

After analyzing PANW, I declined to take the trade.

8/31 – 8:55 a.m. New York time

Exited DG for a profit.

8/31 – 9:50 a.m. New York time

LULU and PANW continue to qualify for trading, and I shall post analyses today. CIEN and CTRP each quickly moved beyond a breakeven point, and in keeping with my new practice of getting out quickly once breakeven is exceeded, I exited both positions.

8/30 – 9:50 p.m. New York time

I shall consider two potential earnings plays on Thursday: LULU and PANW.
