Earnings season is among the most volatile times for short-term traders and this one will be no exception with many cult stocks expected by the options market to have double-digit percentage swings in any direction.
With this in mind, MKM Partners derivatives strategist Jim Strugger gave his best short-term earnings trade ideas in a note to clients Wednesday.
