I have entered an earnings play on BMRC using shares. I took the trade on the strength of a bullish, day old uptrend on the Fisher Transform metric and a relatively high score from the Zacks earnings surprise predictor. The position of the Fisher below the zero line theoretically gives the uptrend room to rise.
The Fisher Transform turned dow on the 4-hour chart and I exited for a profit, eight days before earnings were due to be published.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
