I’ve passed on a potential trade on EWW after a full analysis.

10:35 a.m. New York time

I have no more earnings plays in sight this week, so I’ll turn my attention to longer-term positions. Today I’ll take a look at EWW, a high IV rank exchange traded fund that tracks the Mexican stock market. It’s not my trading idea but was posted by Fauzia, a member of the TastyTrade team.

Of my present options positions, one — GNRC — is nearing the point where I manage it — either exit or roll it forward. For iron condors like GNRC and directional spreads, the management point is 50% of maximum potential profit. For iron flies, which I use for earnings plays, I manage 25% of maximum potential profit.

Here’s the status of my options positions:

sym option debit share price curr % max profit net prft/shr $ option days left
AMD 0.72 31.99 26.5 0.26 9
EWZ 0.75 33.55 12.8 0.11 51
GNRC 0.70 57.56 42.1 0.51 23
KMX 2.88 27.51 17.0 0.59 23
JBL 1.63 73.65 (19.0) (0.26) 23

NKE 2.55 83.48 17.5 0.54 23
SPY 3.45 291.25 (12.4) (0.38) 51

And of my share positions:

sym share price net result % net profit $ days held
AAPL 222.99 -0.4% (0.97) 12
