Thursday's Outcomes

I exited three options volatility plays, all built out of October issues expiring in a week plus change.

My IBM and INTC positions produced profits. EWW was a loss.

Turning to small-lots shares, I entered two positions, AEZS and SKYW.

I exited two shares positions, LWAY and UMBF. The latter dropped precipitously from profitable not loss making at the market open after it was downgraded to neutral by a analysis company.
