Thursday's Agenda

My one options prospect for a day, a volatility play on MYL, no longer qualifies. Implied volatility at the open quickly dropped to the 25th percentile of its one-year range, lower than I prefer for for entering a positions.

As for the small-lots shares positions,

The publications date for earnings on VNEM has been changed to Sept. 1. I'll look at the stock at that time before making a trading decision.

CYAD has whipsawed on its trading signal and no longer qualifies.

Among the Stochastic-RSI momentum prospects, I shall trade TTMI, STL, GWB, COTV and OHI. One symbol, NSIT, is as yet too bearish on the technical indicator to allow for a trade.
