Friday's Agenda

My prospective a high-volatility options trade, VMW, saw a sharp drop in volatility this morning, and it no longer qualifies for further analysis. So I'm laying it aside. There was one symbol that close to qualifying at the lose on Thursday, but it, too, dropped so is not a candidate for further analysis.

Turning to shares under my small lots strategy, CMLS and OUTR remain viable and I shall enter positions.

The S&P 500 gapped down sharply this morning. I anticipate exiting some positions.
