Options Trading Opportunities Throughout Earnings Season

Hey traders!

I’m so glad so many of you were able to join me at yesterday’s session after market close in our Simpler Trading Free Trading Room! I always enjoy after-market sessions, where I’m able to slow it down and cover a timely topic in detail.

Yesterday, the topic of the hour was ‘Best Options Trading Opportunities Throughout Earnings Season,’ because we are entering the Hot Zone on some of the market’s most important and market-moving tickers right now! These stocks include Microsoft, Apple, Tesla, and more. As we enter October, coming up shortly, we’ll be entering the Hot Zone (if we aren’t already in it) on stocks reporting earnings at the end of October and into the beginning of November.

When stocks enter the Hot Zone is one of the prime times that we can identify directional setups that we can trade in the options market.

What is the Hot Zone, you may ask?

It’s the timeframe pre-earnings in which many companies experience statistically backed, directional moves, as investors either bail on lackluster tickers prior to big news or attempt to gain more exposure.

But, this is only one of my favorite tradeable setups surrounding earnings season. During the State of the Market, Pre-Earnings Boot Camp yesterday, I discussed that and several more.

We also discussed:

  • Earnings & Their Impact on the Market – Why it Matters
  • Patterns & Statistics to Watch
  • Setups & Timing
  • Trading Earnings Season
  • The State of the Market going into Q3 Earnings
  • Bear Market Trends on Earnings
  • …and more!
