Hi SOT,
Have you made any straddle/strangle plays on earnings recently?

Hi AJ,
No, I have not.There are not many candidates to pick from with earnings winding down and I was away on vacation recently. But next week will see a few financial giants like LEH, BSC and GS reporting earnings. They tend to be big movers. So keep an eye on them.
