Two have open interest on options that is too low or maldistributed for use in a trade: KSU and VOYA.
One has an overly wide bid/ask spread: CHTR.
And two have implied volatility that is too low for use in the short-term trading that I do, which relies in part on a collapse in volatility to boost the profit. Those two are CBS and COP.
I plan no further analysis of Monday's price-channel signals.
There was one prospect for an earnings play, the symbol M. However, I couldn't make it work and so passed on the opportunity. Read the analysis here.
