Ex Post Facto Notes 11am:

ANGI - I have no idea why I even bothered with this, I had no intention of trading the common and the only feb opex strikes offered were 5 and 7.5

ACT and FOSL both presented non-directional opportunities on the open.

I completely missed RAX as that also presented a non-directional opportunity.

VIPS continued to rip higher from yesterday's earnings pop.
