Live: Tuesday, November 7, 2017

11/7 – 3:15 p.m. New York time

In today’s outcomes, I rolled FXE forward to a new position as the downtrend continues, entered shares earnings plays on OR, ROK, MYGN and TTWO and exited plays on CORE, LGIH and WLK, and HL.

I also corrected the Shares post labelled as Wednesday to Tuesday, to reflect that the symbols listed were those I traded into today.

11/7 – 2:40 p.m. New York time

I rolled FXE forward to the January monthly options as part of my Elliott wave analysis strategy.

I exited four shares plays coinciding with earnings: CORE, LGIH and WLK, and separately, HL.

I entered four earnings plays with shares: OR, ROK, MYGN and TTWO.

11/7 – 1:25 p.m. New York time

I have rolled FXE forward to a position trading for the last time on Jan. 19, 2018. I shall update the analysis shortly.

11/7 – 10:20 a.m. New York time

I exited four shares positions after earnings were announced, each for a profit, and have updated the Shares posts for each: CORE, LGIH and WLK, and HL.

I’m looking at OR, ROCK, MYGN and TTWO as new share entries on Tuesday, all coinciding with earnings announcements.

The problematic symbols that were on my options prospects list remain problematic. I won’t be doing further analysis MAR, MGM or REGN..

I shall make a decision later int he day on the timing of the roll forward of my FXE position.

11/6 – 8:24 p.m. New York time

The number of potential trades meeting my standards declines as an earnings season runs its course. So it on Tuesday, as all four of my prospective trades turn out to have flaws that require that they be bumped off of my list.

MAR has an over low earnings surprise predictor score from Zacks, and MGM and REGN have bearish scores from the analytical company.

TTWO would make the grade, were it not for its wide bid/ask spread.

I have moved TTWO over to my list of shares I intend to trade on Tuesday as earnings plays. Three other symbols are on the list: OR, ROK and MYGN.
