The SIDESHOW - Trading stocks under $10 and ETF's; options candidates; general market analysis

Evan Spannknebel

Entries are derived through scans quantifying specific measurements in volume, momentum or proven technical signatures. It will be updated daily and even more frequent on many days. Entries vary from ETF's under $80 and stocks ranging from $10 to sub penny. An initial target of 25% from the signal close is sought and many reach further than that target. A trailing stop is used. You will find those stocks failing their target will often stop out with a profit. The target sought is expected in four weeks or less making the compounding of working capital a rapid reality. EOD updates usually are attended to near the close. New selections are usually included by 9 PM Eastern. Your votes of favor are appreciated.

NOTICE: February 27 - I am expecting a sideways market and will be tightening stops to trim risk and exit a few positions. February 28 - A new data base is being built for Options trading in the 'weeklys' format. It will be operational in a couple days. March 5 - Data bases are built. Testing has found a few glitches. I expect to be operational late today. There are 5 scans using the new data bases. 4 are now working. March 7 - Markets are nearing bullish complacency. March 17 - While the general market direction is bullish there is a lateral pull within multiple flags and triangles in multiple indices. This phenomenon requires extra care, and perhaps, fewer selections.
