Monday's Agenda

Six symbols from among the finalists and near-finalists listed on the Prospects post over the weekend qualify for a further look as volatility plays using options. I won't be trading all of them -- that would go against time diversification -- but I shall pick two out of the batch and trade them.

I shall look at the symbols with the highest implied volatility percentiles first, and then work my way down until I have two trades.

The list, in order:


My one shares prospect under my small-lots strategy, a price-channel breakout by FEIC, is off the table. The price whipsawed back below the channel and so no longer qualifies for a trade.
