Monday's Agenda

 Both small-lot shares prospects, MOMO and SNCR, continue to qualify for trading.

I had one candidate, FE, for a high-volatility options trade at Friday's close. Implied volatility fell and it no longer qualifies.

One of the close to qualifying symbols, VMW, does indeed have sufficiently high implied volatility today, but its options grid won't work for the sorts of positions that I use, so it's also off the table.
