Monday's Agenda

This is the last trading day before my flight to East Asia, so I've jammed into this one day three days worth of potential trades -- those publishing earnings between Monday after the closing bell and  Thursday before the opening bell.

The symbols under consideration are TWTR, NOV, WFM, DD, APC, FB, BIDU and TSLA.

However, also coming into play is the fact that we are now 19 days into the earnings season. At this point I usually find that I'm running short of funds to commit to trades. Almost all of my cash is already on the table, and I need to start choosing carefully among trades for reasons having nothing to do with the technical aspects I usually pay attention to.

A narrow bid/ask spread makes for a less expensive trade and therefore makes it more attractive. TWTR, WFM, FB, BIDU and TSLA all have spread below 5% there therefore will be my priorities. The rest have spreads of 5% and greater.
