Wednesday's Finalists

Nine symbols are under consideration as trades for Wednesday, having survived the early rounds of analysis. And in the end, there was one.

Here's the decision tree:

Four of them failed confirmation: SLB, JCI, USO and XLB.

Of the remaining, three have insufficient open interest on their options to meet my needs: SEIC, COST and MSCC.

Of the two still in contention, one has an overly wide bid/ask spread: ITW.

That leaves XLY, the consumer discretionary spending fund, and I shall be posting an analysis prior to the closing bell examining it as a trade under my shorter-term rules.
