11/15 – 3:25 p.m. New York time

My electric power is back and I am once again fully operational. It feels very odd to be cut off from the markets on a trading day. Just saying.

In today’s outcomes, I entered an options position on CSCO and share positions on WGL, HP, SFS and STNG, and exited shares positions on AUPH and MTOR. The analyses of positions I exited have been updated with results.

11/15 – 10:35 a.m. New York time

I have entered earnings plays using shares on WGL, HP, SFS and STNG.

This wraps up my planed trading for the day., 24 minutes before.

11/15 – 10:10 a.m. New York time

I have entered an options position on CSCO and exited share positions on AUPH and MTOR.

11/15 – 9 a.m. New York time

I have one earnings play using options on the agenda this morning: CSCO. I have four earnings plays using shares: HP, SFS, STNG and WGL.

I shall also be exiting my share positions entered on Tuesday: AUPH and MTOR.

I expect a two-hour scheduled power outage between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. New York time. My goal is to push as much work as possible into the first two hours of the day, prior to the outage.
