Monday's Agenda

The one earnings play on my desk today, HRB, is coming in with implied volatility at 28% of its annual range. Since my guidelines require relative IV of 50% or higher for trades coinciding with earnings announcements, I am striking HRB from my list.

Two symbols were prospects because of trading signals. I'm removing GDX because of implied volatility at 44% of its annual range. My requirement for trading signals is 33% or below, or else 66% or above.

That leaves PM, a bull signal with low low implied volatility and an historical tendency toward bullish whipsaws. I shall post an analysis today.
