Earnings season always presents us with some of the biggest stock moves we'll see all year. It's nothing unusual. A company crushes analyst estimates for its earnings, and the stock soars. Or it falls short, and the stock tanks.
For options traders, it's a dream scenario. These big moves in short periods of time are exactly where you can make a killing on an earnings trade.
And these moves could be even more pronounced this quarter. Even 66-year market veteran and Vanguard Group founder Jack Bogle says he's never seen volatility like what we have in the market now.

That's why Money Morning's options trading specialist, Tom Gentile, is bringing subscribers two strategies to help you crush the market with your next earnings trade.
A "Blueprint to Financial Freedom": America's No. 1 Pattern Trader used this secret to become a millionaire. Now he's sharing it live on camera - and you could learn how to set up a series of $822... $1,190... or $2,830 payouts every single week.

Here are two of Tom's top strategies for trading earnings this quarter...
