I ran my routine stock screens this morning, yet did not add any new stocks to our watch list.

We now have a total of 14 stocks which we will be watching for a buyable breakout here.

One stock in particular is VG, which actually traded above its TRIGGER PRICE on 5/1, yet volume was not enough to confirm a BUY signal.

Any furhter gains from here while the day’s volume is at least +50% above the normal rate, would have this stock buyable up to the MAX BUY PRICE.

No one has to wait for me to issue any type of alert. Any gains above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have this set up confirming a BUY signal up to the MAX BUY PRICE.

Current Portfolio Members can access all watch lists with updated trading criteria including – TRIGGER PRICE, TRIGGER VOLUME, and MAX BUY PRICE for every stock here.
