Good stuff....I'm currently building my watchlists..one for calls and one for puts. Build those watchlists on strong trends and take signals from only those until the trend 'runs out'. I'd rather build the lists and play those instead of scanning every day for new entries on different stocks. When that trend for that ticker is changing, or how I see it as changing, take if off the list and replace it with another clearer trend ticker.
Scanning off the daily as well and monitoring the shorter timeframe to try to pinpoint entry or get in earlier towards the close (last few hours) of the day.
The scan is technical as well aside from the volume patterns. I need to see good volume to get in.
Sounds like you are only trading weekly's? Only thing about earnings is that they are too unpredictable so I'll simply pass on those signals when the earnings are due in a few days and look at straddles instead.
I do need to study the delta some more but TOS is limited in that respect so more or less reviewing previous signals and how they played out based on my rules.
Timing is everything....along with risk rules of course
Have a good week and might stop back here soon....
Thanks for the input.
