We will look at the Morning Reports List as we get this week started to see where options traders are putting their money to work.
It is up to you to determine which direction you believe the markets will trend so you can then determine if you want to trade option in a bullish or bearish fashion
Earnings this week ending 2022-11-04
Last week we saw many of the major tech companies report and due to their underwhelming results it put a lot of pressure on the NASDAQ. The bullish thing about the market in the real short-term is even with those lackluster results the NASDAQ closed up on the week.
Exxon Mobil and Chevron announced at the end of last week. The stocks continued to hold steady and maintain their uptrend and even today though they close doff their intra-day high they still had bullish days.
Per www.earningswhispers.com some notable companies reporting their earnings this week are Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD) so we can get a sense of what’s going on with semiconductors.
Pfizer is also due out this week and that will shed a light on Health Care. We also get a bead on Oil and Energy with BP Plc ADR (NYSE: BP) and Devon Energy Corporation (DVN) this week.
Slated for Wednesday is the FOMC announcement. The ongoing fight to stave off inflation is going to be addressed and what further actions they are going to take, and their ongoing plans are either going to cause increased price volatility in the markets or we will see if the markets have already been pricing in their expectations and things behave a bit more rationally.
Morning Reports Lists
In taking a look at these lists one can take a couple of different approaches so long as there is data to better enable one to pursue an option as outlined here.
1) One can take a look at the upcoming companies due to report their earnings.
Once they get those dates know they can then keep an eye on the Morning Reports Lists to see if any of these companies are showing up on the list.
Depending on if a company ends up by chance on a bullish or bearish list will give indication where one might want to talk with their broker about trading.
2) If no one company reporting earnings is popping up on any of these lists one can then decide which direction the markets trade; do they continue their recent ramp higher or do they top out and are due to roll over.
Then look at the options populating the bullish or bearish options lists and discuss further with your broker.

Stock and options trading has large potential rewards, but also large potential risk.
You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the stock and options market. Do not trade with money you cannot afford to lose.
This is neither an offer to buy/sell/ or recommend a particular stock or option.
Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been actually executed, the results may have under or overcompensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with hindsight.
No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
