Friday's Agenda

I had one options play among my prospects, a high-volatility analysis of FE. However, the stock's implied volatility this morning stands at the 29th percentile of its most recent range, too low to interest me. Better to preserve those funds for a more interesting opportunity later. I shall not proceed with a full analysis.

I opened five share positions under my small-lots strategy: PCH, LNTH, COHR, LOGI, ANW.
