    BTO 10 HAL May calls @$1.53. So mad at myself for not putting this on yesterday. Feel good about this into earnings next Wed.

    • gdwigan: May 33's btw

    • Ocean Man: Be careful. HAL has a history of selling off after an earnings beat.

    • gdwigan: True OM. Any negativity, rig counts, nat gas capping ala BHI, this trade is likely screwed. Charts not that bad, IMO.

    • gdwigan: Doubled down HAL trade. 10 more May 33 calls @ 1.26.

    • Day Trader001: Gdw, with those calls, what are you expecting it to go up too? I have several May 30's @ 2.77 The forecast I saw was 39.00.

    • gdwigan: If they can somehow get a bit above $2.00 tomorrow I'd be out. Nat Gas blues could ruin us 2mrw on the call no matter how much they beat.

    • gdwigan: Someone was mentioning pivoting off the 3rd Fibo point to break us through ~35. I saw your call though and I hope it's correct! gl tomorrow

    • Day Trader001: $2.00 would be ok for me, but may be a little thin for you. Like Ocean man said, it historically drops soon after the report.

    • Day Trader001: I think I'll hit the dip also. Good luck to you too!

    • gdwigan: Great earnings from HAL. Strong NA with only modest decline in margins which was key! Screw the BHI effect! HAL is firing on all cylindars!

    • gdwigan: Hopefully we can make some money today off this! Looks strong PM though OM's reasoning has been correct over the past 8-9 quarters.

    • gdwigan: If this dips today I'm backing up the truck!

    • gdwigan: Gotmy 20 filled at 2. Probably leaving a lot on the table but I'm long SPN as well. Not a bad trade at all. Hope your doing well with yours.

    • Day Trader001: very nice! I "may" let it cook another 24-48 hours before jumping ship.

    • gdwigan: I think that's a good move DT. IMO, HAL has a ton more upside, based on the call. Very positve overall.
