10/3 – 3:00 p.m. New York time

I entered one new position today, PEP, and exited it one for a roll, TLT. I also analyzed MON but declined the trade.

I have updated PEP’s analysis with the trade chart.

10/3 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

I have exited my TLT position for a profit and shall roll it forward, probably on Wednesday. I won’t calculate full results until the roll series is complete.

10/2 – 8:45 p.m. New York time

I have two prospects on my desk for Tuesday: MON and PEP. A third, YUM, had been on the list, with a degree of uncertainty on when earnings would be published. Yum! Brands has clarified the date for release as being Nov. 2, presumably before the opening bell, as is the company’s practice.
