I have a tax refund cheque coming to me and do not want to give it to my mutual fund guy and make only 10%. I would like to control more of my own financial future.

Whoa!!!There Virgin! Slow down just a few notches. Wanting to take control of your financial future is an excellent idea, but, you've got some reading to do. Luckily, you're in the right place for that!

I created the KEY-TSE screen based on what I learned on the Foolish Workshop and Mechanical Investing message boards. They are based on the theory that the stocks that have been beating the market ("strong relative strength"), tend to continue to outperform.

The following is a quote from the "Welcome to the Foolish Workshop":

While some of the screens developed here have been awesome performers in the recent past, the backtested histories of many of them are brief, or even nonexistent. So don't assume that because a growth screen is up some astounding percentage for the year that you should throw all of your money into it. If you are inclined to use one of these screens, either "as is" or as a source of stock ideas for further study, be sure you understand it, and its limitations. Remember always, "Past performance does not guarantee future performance." And for most of these screens, the past is very short.

I suggest you start by reading the rest of the above welcome message:

Next you should move on to the Workshop FAQ:

There's plenty more to read, but these are a good place to start.
