Hi IcyWolf,

Thanks for your valuable comments.

It probably as not escaped your notice that this is a compliment to the BMW method in my humble way in that although I predominantly use Mike's HG type screens (and a derivative screen of my own) for long investments I appreciate the value of this boards methods greatly.

It struck me that you have a system for wisely picking good long prospects using low line BMW stocks and DD. Why could this not be inverted and use high BMW stocks and DD to find short candidates? The long price histories and trade-ability are necessary qualities when looking for good shorts.

The Turtles (particularly the real crunchy ones) :o) have method's which would not allow any stock to be shorted which was showing any recent strength or was not trending down. There are many built in risk elements in the system.

Just as you do not buy all the low line BMW stocks it would be very Foolish to short all the high line BMW stocks so of course extra DD would always be advisable.

Just random thoughts and any CC is welcome.

Manucastle :o)
