Should you trade earnings? With the impending earnings season that is upon us, the question should always be asked, how do I trade them? Well, it’s important to make sure that earnings plays fit your trade style and strategy. They are definitely not good for everyone and have a high potential for loss, but also the same potential for gains. A lot goes into the decision to take a bearish or bullish position on a particular stock for earnings. Typically we don’t enjoy earnings seasons because it disrupts the natural flow of stocks that we frequently trade. But there is still a way to make money on them, but being cautious is always a good idea. If you do take a position it’s recommended that you take a small position and minimize your downside as much as possible. Ton’s of big companies report this earnings season. You can either sit on the sidelines or capitalize on the opportunity it may create. The choice is entirely yours.
