10/2 – 2:40 p.m. New York time

I’m breaking off a bit early today to head to the Apple stores to get my iPhone repaired. The small-form charing port, present in the iPhone 5 and later, has once again gotten a clogged, no doubt by the dusty residue of expired options. I take the device in to the Apple Store for unclogging about one a year. No idea what they do with the expired options dust.

I had no trades at all today, although TLT is getting within reach of my goal of 50% of maximum potential profit.

10/1 – 10:55 a.m. New York time

I have no earnings plays in sight for analysis on Monday. The rest of the week looks like this: I shall consider MON, PEP and perhaps YUM on Tuesday, and COST on Thursday.

I shall continue to monitor GLD for a reasonable entry  point into a directional trade based on Elliott wave analysis.
