I am sorry that I have now abondoned the strategies that I started posting here.    

I believe I have found a better way and will share it with anyoune interested.

I implemented several portfolios in VictorVest using their winning strategies included Mighty Mites, and Thorton Thunder in a reverse fashions that allows VictorVest to issue Trailing Buy Stop Alerts to me when 7% trailing stop is triggered.  I will then review the chart pattern using stockcharts.com.  If the alert pass my inspection, I will issue a Buy Alert on the stock.

It is suggested entry on Buy Alerts with small position and a 7% trailing stop.  Exit when 7% trailing is treggered or sooner when the stock starts exhibiting negative chart behavior.  Take profit on half the position when the stock gains 20 % or more and peaking, and then hold the rest for the length of rise until the 7% trailing stop is triggered.

Backtests of the VictorVest Strategies indicate a Return of 43.55% for Thorton Thunders and 72% for Mighty Mites since the start of the current bull run on 10/3/11.  Since we included additional pattern examination in our approach, we should perform even better than purely following the Strategies and spend less on commission.

My money is in  retirement accounts and other reasons, I only traded equity.  Thanks.  I just look for a way to be consistent down or up market so I don't get scared out and withdrew completely on  pull back, any size any time.  I know the stocks that keep rotate up on the filter will fly on up markets. It is a bit tough in down market but certainly hold up a lot better than most.

"Please note that the Buy/Sell ratio, BSR, closed below 0.20 on Monday, signaling a very oversold condition, and the market rallied sharply on Tuesday even though the news i.e., a bailout of Greece, wasn't really all that good. It then gave back Tuesday's gain on Wednesday, but showed signs of recovery on Thursday. Again today, stock prices moved higher on hints of a bailout for Greece even though it doesn't solve any problems. Given this behavior, I'd say the downturn is essentially caput. Get your shopping lists ready for a big rally. ", Commentedy by Founder of VictorVest

Just on a side note ... do you follow options trading? in particular index options trading... 

Last week I bought calls for the volatility index and more than tripled my investment in just a week

Stop testing Jail Breaking Alpha Trap.  It did essentially the same thing as the Down Marking Fighting Alpha Trap.  Start a Best Signal Alpha Trap taking the top 20 Alpha 100 stock by Signal.
