Very interesting thread! For the RS-IBD monthly top 1 screen, one might consider using the 20-day Bollinger band instead of an arbitrary stop-loss %.

If the closing price breaks below the band, shift to cash until the next month's purchase. This should protect against major downfalls beyond the normal short-term volatility of the stock.

Just a pebble to toss in your pond.
