Thursday's Finalists

Of the four price-channel breakout signals under consideration today, two have flaws that put them out of the running.

QLD is an ultra fund keyed to the NASDAQ 100 ETF trading under the symbol QQQ. If I need leverage (and when do I ever not need it?), I get it through options, not ultras.

MDU, the one bear signal in the group, has options with low open interest. I require open interest in three figures or better.

That leaves QQQ and also CSX, both bull signals. It's late in the day, but I shall take a look at them as potential trades prior to the closing bell.

The symbol from my innovators list, KMX, also confirmed its bull signal.

I've already posted an analysis of CBS as a volatility play keyed to earnings. It can be read here.
