Has anybody tried trading with Earnings Breakout after hours?
It seems that when earnings are announced at 3:01, 3:10,
etc.. many stocks "jump" and breakout one way or another.
Anybody tried scalping in that situation. I tried a few
times and seems to work. Example: Watch carefully, watch
carefully, finger on button, jumps upward, BUY LIMIT at the ASK (to
make sure you get it), and ride the trend for a short period
(according to your style). or watch, watch, SELL at the BID,
ride it down a while, etc... Anybody try this?
I have tried bought pre market short when HOOD gapped down, but
I was too late to set a stop and the market opened, it shot up big
(arkk decided to buy the gap down), the day closed from -12 to +
3%. I was going to try this on FB, but did not want to stay up late
to do this. I think a gap down may work better, but I just can't
stay up late at night to do this, so I have gave up on this. The FB
move probably would have netted me 7%. Besides, FB fundamental is
still good, so I tend not to short these ones, but those that do
not make profits.
yeah that action is crazy fast - orders have to be set - maybe
boxed orders - I don't usually bother doing it myself. most of time
time it's too fast to get filled
