This week, for options trading, I reviewed nearly 500 symbols in my large-cap stocks and exchange-traded funds, and for share trading, I reviewed nearly 1,000 symbols of stocks and funds of all capitalizations. For both I reviewed more than 60 companies publishing earnings.
I use four strategies in my trading, in response to trading signals (such as breakouts above the 20-day price channel), high implied options volatility, and persistently rising trends on a charts signaled by the stochastic-relative strength index indicator, and in anticipation of events ( such as earnings announcements).
I shall make final trading decisions on Thursday, Sept. 1.
