Tuesday's Agenda

All 13 of the prospective earnings plays waiting a trading decision this morning have implied volatility that is too low to meet my guidelines.

I calculate volatility level relative to its most recent range, requiring that it be in the 60th percentile or greater to qualify for trading.

Here's the chart:

symrange %ile

None appear to be close enough to my minimum so as to have a reasonable chance of rising to that level during the trading day.

I shall do no further analysis today and plan to open no new positions.

Elliott Wave Principle

Tradecraft: Playing the odds to build winning stock market trades from options, a description of how I trade, can be read here.

Elliott wave analysis tracks patterns in price movements. StockCharts has a good explainer. The principal practioner of Elliott wave analysis is Robert Prechter at Elliott Wave International. His book, Elliott Wave Principle, is a must-read for people interested in this form of analysis, as is his most recent publication, Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading
