Thursday's Finalists

Wednesday's markets produced a poor crop of prospects. The three symbols that survived initial screening -- AUXL, WRI and OC, all with bull signals -- had volumes of below a million shares a day, on average. That's acceptable for share trading, but too illiquid for most options trading. (See "Thursday's Prospects".)

The lower share liquidity on the three resulted in low open interest on the options. In addition, WRI's momentum reversed toward the downside; it confirmed the bull signal but weakly.

I don't intend to do further analysis on any of those, nor, indeed, on any symbols based on signals from Wednesday's trading.

I did analyze the one symbol on the verge of publishing earnings with sufficient liquidity to meet my criteria. Read it at "BBBY: Volatility play".
