Thursday's Finalists

MCD was the one survivor of the early screening to be in play today. The other, HES, came under the special earnings rules that delay consideration.

However, MCD failed to confirm its bear signal, instead gapping upward after the fast-food chain announced it is replacing its CEO.

I plan to open no positions based on on Wednesday's markets.

AAPL on my innovators list gave a bull signal and confirmed it today. But that's no trade for me. I already own shares under my longer-term rules and just a day earlier completed a very short term volatility play coinciding with earnings. I plan no further analysis or trades on AAPL today.

I have opened earnings plays on AMZN, GOOGL and MA. See the analysis here.
