Wednesday's Outcomes

I placed options orders on two earnings plays -- BBY and NTAP -- but neither had been filled when the market closed. I had structured the trades so I was asking for the minimum credit possible under my guidelines, a practice that increases the odds of a winning trade but leaves no room for adjustments in order to gain a fill.

I placed two shares trades using my small lots approach, opening a position on CNXC and exiting one on BBY. See Wednesday's Small Lots for details.
