GMCR dropped back into its 20-day price channel in early training, failing to confirm the bull signal. The open interest on PLL is too sparse for use in constructing a bear position. That leaves DE, a highly liquid stock with high open interest on options, a narrow spread and a bearish chart.
I'll post a full analysis of DE prior to the closing bell.
