"But the question is, how the heck does one calculate what stocks to buy with one of these complex MSS's."

I agree that some of these things are difficult to program in Excel (with my limited skills anyway). However, if the screens depend on selecting stocks from Jackcade's short list, then a program to select the stocks can be implemented in a data processing package like SAS. I have a few routines set up to select stocks for various overlaps and SOS approaches. Would be happy to share same. Also wouldn't mind having someone else check the code.
