It is already sorted by top weighted score for the past year. That is all you need. There are at least ten good picks every week - I would look at the top ten (which all usually have successful over the past 1-2 months) and see if there is any news that might be helpful/harmful. Also, look at the sector they are in - is it performing well relative to the rest of the market? That would certainly help.

Kevin:
Sounds encouraging,could really turn into a slow cooker for anyone. 3% may sound small to some but if you coumpound your wins it begins to add up fast.

Even without compounding it is pretty impressive - 12% per month or 150% per year. I've never done that.

By the way, this filter should only be run over the weekend, once the weekly numbers for SF have been finalized.

Then you take a closer look at the top 10, do some DD on them and pick your top 3 to invest. Split your investment evenly between them to improve the odds.

Not yet - I only modified it last night to see how it would work. However, I am very seriously considering this approach over my current trading system (Bollinger Band-based).

Stocks are bought at the open on Monday, as a rule. That is what the statistics are based upon (weekly open is the open on Monday).

Red or green is not part of the analysis - it is based solely on the opening price on Monday and the high for the week. However, you could wait and see if there is a pullback, depending on the market futures, and get in cheaper using a limit order (thereby improving your likelihood of hitting the 3% target).

Kevin. Once you start trading this you will understand my previous comment. I wouldn't use the poker parlance "All in".How are you calculating your stop or don't you plan to use one?
