PREFACE
There is a pattern of bullish momentum in E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:ETFC) stock just days before earnings, and we can track that by looking at swing returns in the option market. This is a short-term swing trade, it won’t be a winner forever, and it can be easily derailed by a couple of down days in the market irrespective of E*TRADE Financial Corporation news, but for now it has shown a repeating success that has not only returned 1,027% annualized returns, but has also shown a win-rate of 63%.

IDEA
The idea is quite simple — trying to take advantage of a pattern in short-term bullishness just before earnings, and then getting out of the way so no actual earnings risk is taken. Now we can see it in E*TRADE Financial Corporation.
