Friday's Agenda

A prospect for a shares traded coinciding with earnings, LII, continues to qualify today and I shall enter a position under my small-lots approach.

Two symbols qualify for shares trades because of their Stochastic-RSI indicators: CLD and IRS.

Implied volatility on my one options prospect, an earnings play on BAC, dropped back to the 22nd percentile. That low level disqualifies the stock from further analysis. My requirement is the 50th percentile or higher.

See Friday's Prospects for a full list of symbols I considered this morning.
