Here is a three timeframe grid to use to evaluate Pre-Earnings Trading
Trade the period before earning and exit before the announcement to preserve profits.
May not have as high a reward, but substantial less risk.
Change the number of days in the scanner, to reflect, how many days before earnings, you are looking to trade.
Currently, it scans for earnings occurring one day before, change it to x days before.

Here is an All-In-One Chart.
It contains the 10min chart, the weekly chart and a tick chart stacked on top of each other.
Set the timeframes to reflect the 3 timeframes that you use and add your favorite indicators
Just use the arrows to flip to ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS review your THREE timeframes.

Outperformers, who are dipping.

These strong stocks, have a tendency to increase in price when the next rally day hits; in the absence of bad news, economic data, geopolitical events, etc.
As long as the lower timeframes are all bullish, swing traders will take entry on dipping stocks.
Swing traders don't worry as much about the exact timing of the entry. Often times, this stocks will continue dipping; leading to an initial loss. But swing traders will hold until the next new high or longer.
