Please see the attached Economic Calendar for next week.

There are a fairly high number of U.S. and European important (potential to move the markets) reports next week.

Good luck.

Regards,

Jim B.

Please see the attached Economic Calendar for next week.

An extract from an email to trading buddies in which the Economic Calendar was attached follows:

"So how far will EUR Finance Ministers be willing to "kick the can down the road" irt (In Respect To) the upcoming possible Greek debt default on Tuesday? More importantly, how will markets react?

It seems like such situations often result in a yawn irt the markets. But is reducing exposure or buying insurance (put options) appropriate? As always, it depends on each individual's risk tolerance, and etc."

Good luck.

Regards,

Jim B.

Update to above post:

WSJ NEWS ALERT - just received within last hour

Eurozone Ministers Reject Greek Bailout Extension Request

Eurozone finance ministers rejected a Greek request for a one-month extension to its bailout program, officials said, setting off a period of high uncertainty for the country.

The decision means Greece's bailout program will expire on Tuesday and the country will likely default on its 1.55 billion euro ($1.73 billion) payment due to the International Monetary Fund the same day.

Perhaps many forum members already have a section in their trading plan that addresses when (a market) disaster strikes. So on Monday of this week, most traders/investors would likely consider that day as qualifying for implementing the actions outlined in that section of their trading plans.

Attached are some of the perhaps obvious actions. Using options, such a day can yield decent profits. For example, an easy, conservative intraday trade in the VXX provided a 3x (or slightly more if played perfectly) return of the money put into the trade (profits of 200%). Another choice was to trade SPY options intraday, which provided 2x the amount of money put into the trade (profits of 100%). Of course, less conservative option trades provided greater returns. Also other financial instrument choices may have also increased the profits. I tend to use simple things in my trading, and the profits are good enough for me. Perhaps when I get better at trading, other choices might be investigated.

If a trader is not comfortable with options, the 3x ultra shorts might be a good choice for getting at least some profit out of such a bad day. The chart for the SPY 3x ultra short (SPXS) is attached. Again, there might have been a more profitable choice.

Also attached is information that documents market activity on Monday. As seen in the pre market chat comments, it was obviously going to be a significantly down day in the U.S. markets. All times in the attachments are in CDT – market opens at 8:30am.

News can trump just about anything in trading, at least in the short run. And as always, more important than the actual news is the market’s reaction to it.

Hope this info proves to be interesting, and useful, to at least some forum members.

As stated above, there may be better ways to handle market disaster days. Although this request is usually in vain, it would be appreciated if others would share what they do in such situations.

Regards,

Jim B.

Please see the attached Economic Calendar for next week.

As everyone likely knows, the Government Jobs report on Friday morning is likely the most important report for the week for domestic markets. Often trade volume is lower than usual during the whole week prior to the Jobs report.

Good luck.

For next week, 39 earnings stocks met Group criteria, and 28 met SUB criteria.

Note that PLL (150827 AM BMO, Gp criteria) has entered into a merger, which often makes a stock untradable for a profit. However, its volume is not exactly characteristic of stocks in a merger for a long time (since May in this case). So it was included in the list just in case the merger falls apart next week.

Please see attachments.

Good luck.

Jim B.
