Thursday's Agenda

Of five symbols under consideration as trades coinciding with earnings announcements, three are coming in with relatively low implied volatility, which has declined sharply market-wide since July 8.

For that reason, I'm passing on GE, STI and CMA without further analysis. My trading model for earnings events relies on a fall in implied volatility after the announcements. The premature fall in these three symbols -- volatility stands well below the 50th percentile in each -- makes them unworkable under my guidelines.

That leaves two potential trades -- SLB and GOOGL -- with sufficiently high implied volatility, and I shall post full analyses today.
