Clarification of each column in the table are described below:
Column 1 -- This column identifies the stock symbol to be monitored.
Column 2 -- This column provides the potential option to buy if the stock meets the follow thru criteria.
Column 3 -- This column identifies the type of option to buy. We typically enter a position by buying either a CALL option or a PUT option. We do not enter a position by selling ( or writing ) CALLS and PUTS. Our entry positions tend to be in-the-money calls and puts options or deep in-the-money calls and puts. Our target options are usually at least 2-3 months before expiration.
Column 4 -- The earnings date for each stock is identified. Consolidating stock patterns near an earnings date may indicate that the stock may break-out immediately before, during, or immediately after an earnings announcement. These breakouts tend to be very powerful, exhibiting huge price moves and a lot of opportunity for gains.
Column 5 -- The reference template column identifies the various chart patterns that we apply to each stock to characterize its behavior. The six different templates that we employ are the REACTIVE, CHAIKEN, BUFFERED, BREAKOUT, SHORT-TERM TREND, OSCILLATORY templates.
Column 6 -- The comments column will usually identify special entry criteria that must be met during the trading day before a position is entered. Any insight on the catalysts that may impact the price of the stock will also be identified in this column.
