Long Stock: BMI

Signal date: End of 6 Sep 19

Entry price (cyan line): $52.61

Stop loss (red line): $49.65

Take profit (green line): $58.52

Feedback: Long entry at $52.61 on 9 Sep and exited before earnings report at $53.35 on 15 Oct (0.25R). Why did I only capture 0.25R profits when price apparently went on to hit take profit price at $58.52 (2R)? That was because my trading rule was to exit any stocks before earnings report date. After I exited on 15 Oct, the earnings announcement was made on 17 Oct and skyrocketed to hit Take Profit price upon good news. Even though i exited much less in profit than I would if I held on past the earning report, it would have defied my trading strategy. Statistically based on back tests, earnings report usually result in extreme volatility and this results in stop loss unable to trigger due to price gaps. Therefore, I prefer to exit before earnings to limit such risks. The downside is sacrificing the potential for high profits but I am fine with that.
