The probability for a higher close on Day 1 is 50%, 53% for Day 2 and 54% by Day 5, so there is no real edge for stocks going forward.

Vale (VALE) has a 67% probability of a higher close by Day 5 (69.7% Pattern Win Percentage beyond day 5) and offers an Average Return Per Trade of 7.2% (Average Return Per Trade assumes an initial stop of 10%, raised to 5% off the price reached on a 15% gain. Ultimate Profit Target of 25%).

Honorable mention to Motricity (MOTR). Its Pattern offered a 68% win percentage with an Average Return Per Trade of 6.1%.
