What do you guys think about an earnings journal? I trade quite alot of these and would like to hear some ideas from you guys! Two main strategies are: Buying/selling straddles/butterflies right before earnings to take a view on implied vs realized event vol. Buying/selling straddles/butterflies/calendar a few days (no more than 15 bus days) before earnings to take a view on current implied vol vs expected pre earnings implied vol. Here are my current earnings related positions. I do delta hedge my positions with the underlying but will omit from posting the hedges to keep the journal clean. I am always trying to improve and encourage all ideas!!!! Lastly I do not mind talking strategy(for the most part) as most of my edge comes from a unique data set that took me quite sometime to build.
