Planning for next week; here is a preview of upcoming economic news.

If the market cooperates, we are hoping to enter an SPX Weekly Iron Condor for the June 16 cycle on Friday. The VIX is still very low, so the entry will depend on whether there is sufficient credit for what looks like a reasonable position. Because of the flurry of geo-political events Thursday, we are waiting until Friday to enter and hope for a decent entry opportunity.

For planning purposes, a synopsis of upcoming economic news beginning tomorrow is below:


8:30 am Jobless Claims
