I normally use the screens from
backtester.com
keelix.com
tradesim.info
for my initial selection of stocks
and then sell when the MACD(13,34,89)
histogram turns negative.

I also sell when I go on vacation so
as not to be concerned about what's going on.

With a lot of good stocks in hand
I like to run them through finviz and Zacks to
get more information on the company.
Fidelity will also give me reports from
various rating agencies (Ford, Columbine, Ned Davis,etc.)

My trade $ are all in an IRA and have
done quite well.

I also like using the 2 ratio method,
the Bernie screen and the best sector
rel. strength ETF methods (all presented
on this board before).

Recently, I have been using the RSI method of
picking S&P500 stocks on dips. Less of a bid-asked
differential and know more about those companies than
the smaller ones normally selected by our screens.
