Goal: Identify stocks that have met certain Fibonacci retracement requirements as well as other criteria for RSI and MFI.

Tracking Conditions:

Entry: I will scan at the end of each day for any stocks that match any of the above three technical studies, and for tracking purposes will track the stock using the open from the day following the signal.

Exit: The exit point for all three studies will be a gain of 30% within a 1 year time period, or 1 year from the original entry date, which ever comes first.

Thoughts

It has been nearly two weeks since any stocks met the criteria for any of my three indicators but today 4 stocks met the reversal study criteria, my thinking is that this is the start of a new short term downtrend.

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

Stocks: TRN, CMI, ACE, PCAR
