Friday's Prospects

Screening of the Thursday, Oct. 27 markets identified six prospective trades.

I use four strategies in my trading, in response to trading signals (such as breakouts above the 20-day price channel), high implied options volatility, and persistently rising trends on a charts signaled by the stochastic-relative strength index indicator, and in anticipation of events ( such as earnings announcements).

I'm limiting my screening today to earnings and the Stochastic-RSI signals. I'll need to complete set up of my server after moving before I can resume price-channel analysis, and options volatility is moot during earnings season.
