Friday's Agenda

I shall analyze PG and SYMC as potential high implied volatility options plays.

Turning to small-lots shares, I have none that qualify for trading.

Thursday's price-channel breakout, EXTR, pulled back sharply this morning. It remains above the breakout point, but I don't like the pullback and so shall  not trade it.

I'm passing on the two earnings plays I posted CRVP and MFRI lack rankings by Zacks Investment research and shouldn't have been listed as prospects.

The rechecked the 36 potential Stochastic-RSI symbols from Thursday. All continue to remain below the 20% line on the indicator and so fail the test.
