If you are going to buy 70 plus EPS rated stock with either 30 or 65 day weakness on 4% breakout, you can generate a watch list of same in advance. There are several advantages to it. You can get in to the stock earlier and benefit from the breakout day move. If you are more skilled you can enter in anticipation of breakout.
The steps involved are same as in reducing IBD 200 list to few opportunities:
1 Build a 70 plus EPS rated stock list
2 Sort by 65 days and 30 days growth to take only those stocks whose price growth is below 10%
3 Sort by "Price as percent of 52 week high" and take those within 15% or 52 week high.
4 Sort by IBD relative Strength to remove those below 65
5 Now this is your list. You can further reduce it by whether it is first stage, second stage or third stage base.
Now this is a simpler way to do it. There is more difficult way to do it. It is called Technical Analysis. You will just need to go through 1000 plus stocks one by one and identify flat bases and cup with handle. All the best if you want to do it everyday.
