Trade Ahead Of Earnings Strategy

There are two Trade Ahead Of Earnings Strategy setups for today, Tue Mar 17 2020. Remember that this strategy can bring in big profits especially in the environment we find ourselves in at present. It does not matter whether it is a bull or bear market but often in bear markets, it earns considerably more. The second trade I believe will fall lower on Tuesday after earnings are announced.
