Live: Friday, Jan. 19, 2018

1/19 – 3:20 p.m. New York time

In today’s outcomes, I entered one position, ETH, and exited none.

1/19 – 12:05 p.m. New York time

I have entered a shares trade on ETH.

1/19 – 11:40 a.m. New York time

In today’s agenda, TXN and WHR are no longer qualifying as prospects, and I have removed them from the options list leaving CMCSA and F as potential directional trades. One potential shares trade is now qualified, ETH.

My options account is full for the moment, so I shall defer new  plays until I can make some room through an exit. I shall do the shares trade, ETH, right away.

1/18 – 7:30 p.m. New York time

My principle prospects for Friday will be pulled from four directional  potential earnings plays using options:

sym earns median action
CMCSA 1/24 am 1/23
F 1/24 am 1/23
TXN 1/23 pm 1/23
WHR 1/25 pm 1/25

All are from the actions days from the week of Jan. 22-26. My preference will be for the directional plays. I also have 26 non-directional options plays in reserve if none of the directionals works out.

I have no prospective trades using shares.

My goal Friday is to place one or two trades.
