Earnings: Daily Breakdown

Earning Season “officially” begins with the big banks. Expect to see the bulk of earnings at the end of this month and beginning of next. One way to play earning stocks is to look for a “volatility crush” that tends to happen immediately after the release of the earning announcement. This is usually done with a short strangle or iron condor using the weekly expiration. Always keep positions small.
