The symbol failed confirmation by falling back within its 20-day price channel, negating the bull signal and taking it off my list of stocks to consider.
That leaves me with nothing to analyze from Thursday's market session.
I also was looking at a short list of companies announcing earnings after the close today and before Monday's open. However, they proved to be either too illiquid or to have overly wide bid/ask spreads on their options. They aren't symbols I can trade.
So expect no new analyses today. I shall spend the free time doing preliminary prep for next week's earnings announcements in the hope of reducing the analytical crunch.
With earnings season winding down on its down -- I count Nov. 22 as the final day -- that particular tactic will be dropping by the wayside for awhile, until the next earnings season begins on Jan. 12.
There are, of course, always a few out-of-season announcements, earnings that travel their lonely paths through the calendar like rogue planets floating through space without companions and a sun. I'll keep my telescope pointed skyward to catch them, and use them as a vehicle for a short volatility play, as appropriate.
