if on Monday morning I can't get a trade similar to the suggested trade, I don't do that trade.


That is what I meant by the uncertainty. You have the game plan ready, 4 or 5 possibles and the ranking of them. Even before the market opens you know the pre-market direction of the share price. But even so, once the market opens there are a lot of moving parts, the relative attractiveness is in flux. So, you forego a trade, and maybe move that money to other possibilities, perhaps with a limit as to how much you will put into one stock.
