Thursday's Agenda

A potential earnings play with options, AVGO, has implied volatility in the 17th percentile of its annual range. That's too low to trade by selling volatility and I'll do no further analysis today.

Turning to prospects for shares trades, I'll do an earnings play on SWHC and a Stochastic-RSI trade on EWJ.

The signal on JRVR and MASI shows them no longer qualifying for a trade this morning, although I shall check again later in the day.
