Thursday's Prospects: Round 2

A large number of the symbols surviving my first round of analysis were bear signals and were knocked out in the second round because their options lack sufficient open interest to support a bearish options spread. (See "Thursday's Prospects" for the list of first-round survivors.)

I ran a bracket on the remaining symbols. The finalists were the large-cap issue HUM, the small cap PVA and the large cap bear signal ABX.

I selected the pharmaceutical health-insurance company Humana Inc. (HUM) for further analysis based on an initial assessment of its chart.

PVA is on an uptrend within a downtrend, and ABX appears to be working its way through an ascending triangle since last July.

HUM's chart is an uptrend within an uptrend. I'll post my write up prior to the closing bell.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
