A Quick Review of Last Week’s Market…..

Global trade tensions, tariff threats, and Turkey's lira crash pulled the rug-out-from-under traders on Friday, sending the major indexes backwards.

For the week, the Dow finished down 0.6% at 25,313.14, ending a five-week win streak; and  the S&P 500 suffered a similar fate, down 0.3 percent at 2,833.28. However, the Nasdaq Composite managed to remain positive with a gain of 0.4 percent at 7,839.11.

Moving Ahead…..

The week ahead could continue its volatility with an overhang from cautiousness surrounding Turkey’s currency collapse and the fallout across global markets.

July retail sales data comes out Wednesday, which could be an important look at the direction of consumer spending at the start of the second half of the year.

China also has key data, including retail sales and Industrial production Tuesday.

Talks toward a new North American Free Trade Agreement will also be a focus point.

When To Exit A Trade Based On Earnings?.....

It is also worth considering, when options trading earnings reports – “Do we exit on already existing profits or leave the companies to report their earnings and hope for bigger profit?” 

As most traders realize, there is a 50/50 chance that the company stock price could go either way after reporting earnings – even if the report is good, the stock price could reverse – and if you hold a call option, means depletion of an already good profit if it exists. A similar situation can be found if you hold a put option, and a report is not that sound (and you expect a profit from this) but the stock price can, at times move upwards due to traders bias or other external conditions......READ MORE.....
