Monday's Agenda

I shall be looking a FXE today as a potential volatility play.

I'm rejecting GDXJ, TBT and TLT as potential volatility plays because of the specialized nature of their underlyings: GDXJ is gold, and both TBT and TLT are long-term U.S. Treasuries, both of which are responding to political events in the wake of the U.S. elections. Stocks, by contrast, are a more complex arena.

All of my shares prospects pulled back today, disqualifying them from further consideration.

I noted C, along with FXE, as trades I would look at as a results of trades posted on the education site Dough, which I will be tracking as a learning project.

I'm rejecting C because the rationale for the trade was based on political events. I'm all about the calculable odds, something generally beyond the grasp of politics.

FXE, as I noted above, is still of interest, and I shall post a full analysis soon using a changed format.

I shall look at trades posted today on Dough and analyze them as warranted.
