I've been running this or variations of it for a month or so, looking for micro-caps that are starting to break out of a solid base on higher volume. With many microcaps, I get a better sense of price-volume action by looking at weekly charts rather than daily.

Most hits from this aren't worth buying. But if you see an interesting chart, do some DD and you may find a good trade. I got a nice 25% trade on CRWG in Jan using this approach.
