Fear Sucks

Good morning folks,
It looks like we may have a soft open, after a couple of decent bounce days we need a breather day. The markets could be a bit choppy as they try to decide which way they want to go. We have a shortened trading week so I plan on sitting on the sidelines unless something really compelling comes my way.
Enjoy your day off tomorrow and have a tremendous weekend. 

Morning movers and other stocks that caught my eye
BX earnings beat gapper decent daily, CDTI daily caught my eye, WYY pr this morning already swinging it, GIG thin one but wanting to dip my toe for a swing, TROV like the daily, MXWL like the daily, ALJ daily is kinda hot, PDS continuation?,
