THE WEEK AHEAD: X, FB, VIX

TVC:VIX   Volatility S&P 500 Index
Running through my implied volatility screens, it doesn't look like next week looks very promising for premium selling at the moment.

A couple of earnings play possibles are out there, however, one of which is X, whose 6-month implied volatility rank is at 78, with a background implied volatility of 69, which means my earnings play/volatility contraction "smell test" (>70 implied volatility rank; >50 implied volatility ).

FB             also waits in the wings, but its implied volatility hovers south of 31%, so it's one to watch, but it's not quite ripe enough.

As always, I'm keeping an eye on VIX             . As with last week, it's super low here, which invites some kind of long play. (See Post Below).

Otherwise, I'll be honing my hand-sitting skills. I've been getting lots of practice here lately.
Comment: Was hoping that FB implied volatility would ramp up into earnings. No such luck -- it's currently at 30.8% -- too low for me to bother with, since there won't be much contraction post-earnings.
