Friday's Finalists: None

It's the sort of day that can break a trader's heart. Not only did my analytical routines fail to complete their work overnight due to a power surge, but the symbols that were analyzed have failed to produce a single decent candidate for a trade.

Of the 11 symbols that made it to the finals, all were confirmed as they continued to trade outside of their 20-day price channels. However, the four that had given bear signals have insufficient open interest on their options for use in putting together a position. And the seven that had given bull signals all have bearish charts. (See "Friday's Prospects".)

The result is that I have nothing I can trade, or even analyze further, from among the symbols that gave bull or bear signals on Thursday.

I am again running my analysis. It won't be complete in time for today's session, but I'll do further analysis of Thursday's market session over the weekend for potential action on Monday.
