Monday's Agenda

Both prospects based on Friday's trading continue to show low implied volatility, so low that there is next to no chance that it will rise sufficiently to meet my standards for full analysis and trading.

I judge volatility according to its percentile of its most recent range.

I require the 60th percentile or higher. The two prospects come in like this: MCD in the 10th percentile and PEP in the 28th percentile.

Both are disqualified from further consideration.
