12/22 – 3:15 p.m. New York time

In today’s outcomes, I entered no new positions, exited my options position on NKE and kept my shares position on NKE.

12/22 – 1:15 p.m. New York time

I have no prospective trades for next week, from Dec. 26 after the closing bell to Jan 2 before the opening bell. Market volume typically is quite light during the intra-holiday week and I don’t anticipate doing any trading. A good week for projects.

12/22 – 12:05 p.m. New York time

I have exited my options position on NKE.

12/22 – 10:35 a.m. New York time

My NKE positions, options and shares, moved opposite the direction of the trade, with the price falling despite a positive earnings surprise. I plan to exit today at the best price, lose or win, that I can manage.

I have finished the metrics performance analysis of the BBBY and KMX trades, wrapping up the paperwork on the positions entered on Thursday.

I plan to do the prep for next week’s trades, anticipating few to none.

12/22 – 8:15 p.m. New York time

I have no prospective new positions for action on Friday.
