I've closed my position in PFE, which proved to be one of the more complex exits I've managed. I've updated my original analysis, "PFE: Pharmaceutical sideways play", with results and an extended discussion, with a chart, about how I managed the exit.
I looked into how to trade EWZ with neutral implied volatility, neither high nor low. Read what I found in "Shorting the unshortble".
VIP has been on the Watchlist waiting for a chance to trade as a bull play. No dice. It traded below the 10-day price channel on Thursday and confirmed the exit signal today, so off the Watchlist VIP shall fly.
