(See the complete first-round list at "Tuesday's Prospects".)
ETE, which gave a bull signal, is in the final phase of a rise from June 2013, too far advanced for me to trade.
And YNDX, a bear signal, has options that lack the open interest I need to construct a bearish vertical spread.
Also, YNDX is a Russian company whose stock declined by 14.1% on Monday during the brief Ukraine panic and so far today is up 8.7%. With so much news pressure, who knows what's really going on with that symbol?
Bottom line: No trade today from the prospects list.
