Live: Wednesday, October 11, 2017

10/11/2017 – 3 p.m. New York time

I exited my position in FAST and entered no new positions.

10/11 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

I have exited FAST for a small loss.

Both of my prospects for the day, C and JPM, display implied volatility below my standard, and I shall pass on both without further analysis. I have no new positions on my agenda today.

10/10 – 9:55 p.m. New York time

I have two symbols on my prospects list for Wednesday, but as things stand now, neither will qualify for further analysis because of low implied volatility. The symbols are C and JPM. I shall check them again on Wednesday and make a final decision.
