With the top five so close, any trading done before Wednesday's open could have a major effect on the contest. Under the rules of the weekly contest, players can swap out one stock before Wednesday's market open.

On Wednesday, after the market open, registered players will be able to go to the Beat the Street Web site and see what stocks the other players have chosen, and all players should keep abreast of the game in the Stockpickr forum.

The next Beat the Street game will be held next week, so if you aren't in this week, you're only a few days away from your next chance to play.
