11/2 – 8:30 p.m. New York time

I’ve updated my BABA results with the close-to-close post earns movement.

11/2 – 3:10 p.m. New York time

Outcomes: I have entered a position on ATVI and exited BABA

11/2 – 12:40 p.m. New York time

I have updated the BABA analysis with results.

11/2 – 11:40 a.m. New York time

ATVI continues to meet my standards for trading. I shall post a full analysis today.

11/2 – 9:35 a.m. New York time

I exited BABA for a profit.

11/1 – 10:25 p.m. New York time

I have one prospect for analysis on Thursday: ATVI using a bull directional strategy.

I rejected with a full analysis AAPL because its outcomes are strongly driven by news reports, CBS and SBUX because of overly wide bid/ask spreads, and AIG and BRK.B because of difficulties with the options grid.
