Earnings Season Back in Full Swing


Solid Start to the Week:

We put our best foot forward yesterday to kick the tires on a fresh trading week, and despite a poor session for the markets, four of the five options ideas we included in our morning report ended up presenting respectable swing trade opportunities early in the day.

We cast a rather wide net, and the targets that produced for us were the SPY 07/18 $386-388 Calls, the SYF Weekly $31-33 Calls, the GS Weekly $300-305 Calls, and the BA Weekly $150-152.50 Calls. Here were the intraday swings and total possible gains they recorded:
