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.

For those that may be interest in adopting my strategy and get my alerts, you may follow me at www.stocktwits.com/genyko

The strategy is to keep a max of 20 positions.  With 7 current positions, we are 65% in cash. The 3.23% reported gain is based on committed positions only.

Correction:  Criteria is RSI > 40 not RSI <30.

A portfolio of stock will be selected and keep for the top 30 alpha stocks as reported by Barchart.com.  The selection criteria can be refined in the future but currently are as follow:

1. Aroom Up > Arroom Down by 30

2. RSI < 40

3. Daiy Close for today > Daily Lwr Keltner Channel Limit

4. Daily Close for today > 11 Day EMA of Close for today.

3. 6 Day EMA 1 Day > 6 Day EMA 6 Days Ago

The scan will be run each night and the portifilio is to be adjusted according.

A portfolio started 5/19/12 using this Alpha20holds strategy has 12 buys 4 closed with 7 winners and 5 losers yesterday and a gain so far of 3.23% as of yesterday.
