Tuesday's Agenda

My most interesting prospect of the day, an options volatility play on COST, will have to wait. Volatility is not quite high enough, but it's getting there. Moreover, the company publishes earnings on Dec. 7, and I prefer to wait until closer to the announcement before entering a position.

The other prospects are the same old gang: Interest rates (TLT and TBT), fossil fuels (UNG) and gold (GDXJ). I already have exposure on TLT, and am waiting on fossil fuels until the major producing countries figure out what they want to do on production levels.

I've lost interest in GDXJ on technical grounds -- a very wide bid/ask spread. I'll revisit it if I can find a way to make it work, but I'm staying out for now.

I'll be keeping an eye on trading ideas posted today on Dough and shall follow through on those that interest me as part of my learning project.
