9/20 – 3:40 p.m. New York time

I entered a new position on JBL timed to coincide with an earnings announcement.

I rolled forward my October position on SPY to a November position and updated the analysis with the new position’s information and my rationale for taking the roll today.

9/20 – 10:40 a.m. New York time

JBL remains eligible for a full analysis, and I shall consider the trade later today.

I have exited my SPY position but won’t calculate results because I intend to roll it forward to a new expiration after today’s FOMC announcement. The exit was at 36% of maximum potential profit.

9/19 – 8:35 p.m. New York time

I shall analyze JBL on Wednesday as a potential earnings play.
