Is the "Selector algorithm" you use around or is it something you created on your own? Pretty neat idea!

I've been working on it for over a decade but it only got into high gear after I converted the spreadsheets into a php web-app. The spreadsheets were too labor intensive. Now I spend about half an hour downloading some 75 option chains from the CBOE website and uploading them to the web-app. The web-app does an initial selection in seconds producing a sortable table. I then select a half dozen to a dozen candidates which I transfer to a Trade spreadsheet where I do the final selection. One of these days I'll convert the Trade spreadsheet into a php script.

The fun part of the market is not the trading but finding the best stocks to buy. By automating the trading part I have more time for the fun part, marker research.
