10/10 – 3:00 p.m. New York time

I entered two positions today: FAST and DAL. Both are earnings plays.

10/10 – 2:35 p.m. New York time

I have entered a bear position on DAL.

10/10 – 2:15 p.m. New York time

I have entered a position on FAST.

10/10 – 10 a.m. New York time

FAST is still on the board as a potential earnings play this morning, and I shall do a full analysis. I had set DAL aside because of a very bearish score fromĀ Zacks Investment Research, but I am reversing that decision. Rather than using the neutral iron fly position, I shall analyze DAL as a bearish directional trade.

10/9 – 8 p.m. New York time

The analytics of a prospect for Tuesday, FAST, have improved, and if that holds at the opening I shall do a full analysis.

The other potential trade for action that day, DAL, continues to have indicators that suggest its price will swing wider than I like after earnings are published. I shall check it again in the morning.
