All were trading beyond their 20-day price channels at one-hour mark of the trading day. HDB and BPOP has set higher highs. KKR, however, had strongly reversed direction and was close to re-entering the channel, thereby negating the signal.
BPOP lacks sufficient open interest on its options to construct a trade, and all three have overly wide front-month at-the-money bid/ask spreads.
None meets my criteria for further analysis, and I won't be considering new positions based on Friday's markets.
