Thursday's Prospects

Screening of the Wednesday, Oct. 26 markets identified one 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).

The price channel breakout analysis is on hold while I set up the serve that does the work following a move to a new location. I skipped the volatility analysis because most are blocked from further analysis be earnings announcements  between now and the expected expiration.
