Monday's Agenda

I had hoped that today's to prospects -- earnings plays on WDAY and MDT -- would develop sufficient open interest on the options to allow for a trade. But that didn't happen, and so I'm setting them aside.

My rule of thumb on open interest is that it must be at triple digits in the strike price range I would be interested in using in a trade, generally out from the money to the 85% chance of expiring out of the money point.

That leaves no viable prospects, and I have no plans to analyze potential new positions today.
