Eman:

I'm going to follow my own rules on trading this - only the top scorers, since the entire approach is based on statistics.

DEAR
MED
MHR
MBI

All in at equal portions (since we are all trading $10,000 limit, I'll buy $2500 of each at the open tomorrow, unless the futures show a big drop, in which case I'll wait to see where it stabilizes by 10-11 AM).

Trading this virtually in my TRADEMonster account. Will post all details as we had agreed.

I tweaked the filter a bit and my top choice is:

PCBC

Profit opportunity of 15+ % 3 of the last four weeks, and 6 of last 8 weeks.

when and if pcbc has a 5% gain i will trail it with a 2% stop---no use in leaving $ on the table if it is there for the taking!

last week pcbc had a 92.63% profit op with a maximum drawdown of only 4.21%

if i get stopped out at 3% after having a 5% gain then all is well.

3% a week will turn a $1000 account into a $1,000,000 account in 4.6 years!!!

MHR : the guys who run this company know their stuff, this is a long term hold. I am holding some below $1.

BTW; Moby did you ever buy this stock ???

I looked at 3 time frames monthly weekly and daily.. also checked the fundamentals and scored them accordingly

PCBC
MED
TUES

so we are going to buy at the open price tomorrow and manage the trade....... you dont need to sell after 5% or after a week

everyone starts with 15k in the account... OK?

Kevin,

you said "unless the futures show a big drop"

I have heard that you can get clues to the days trading by watching the after hours futures.

Where do you get this information???

+++++++++++++++

Lots of places - finance.yahoo.com, cnbc.com, finviz.com to name a few.

My comment meant that if it looked like a big gap down for the open on Monday (almost unheard of lately) then I would not buy at the open but rather wait for a bit to see if the price goes lower (thereby increasing my odds).

Looking at the bid/ask spreads for my TRADEMonster account, I'll be using limit orders today.

Also in a TC at the open, so I'll most likely take what entry I can get on these.

I hate when the real world intrudes on my virtual trading!!
